Did you know you can make dark chocolate at home?! All you have to do is combine equal parts of cacao powder, coconut oil and maple syrup on a stovetop and then freeze => coconut oil fudge. That chocolate already is a step above store bought organic dark chocolate, which is a step above Hershey’s and Cadbury. But these superfood chocolate bars sweetened only with dates, full of superfoods like coconut oil, chia seeds, cacao powder and coconut flakes are so 2020.

Or healthy-mommy-on-the-run-to-the-playground snack. Or busy-mommy-no-time-for-breakfast snack. Or no-time-to-eat-for-mommy-ever snack. Kidding.
