This Keto Almond bark is the bomb! It's low carb, high in fat and fiber. This Keto friendly chocloate treat is easy to make and you can customize the toppings. It stores well (if you can keep it around that long). It's also much more budget friendly than the store bought low-carb Keto Bark. Make it for yourself or for a gift!

¼cupUnsweetened Shredded CoconutOptional but Awesome
Pink Sea SaltOptional
½teaspoonvanilla or peppermint extractOptional
If you are using whole, raw almonds...chop and drizzle with melted butter and bake @ 275F for 5 minutes. Stir them at the halfway point and take care not to burn. (Burnt nuts are bitter). If your almonds are already toasted skip this step.
Cover cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Grease a microwave safe glass bowl with whatever you want. I used olive oil. Add broken chocolate pieces.
Microwave on high for one minute and stir.
Continue microwaving in 30 second intervals and stir after each time until melted. It took about three minutes total in my microwave. Take care not to burn (sizzle) the chocolate.
Add coconut oil, peanut butter, sweetener and extract if using. Stir until fully melted into the chocolate. Microwave in 15 second intervals if needed. It should look and feel smooth.
Stir it until the mixture slightly cools/thickens and the sweetener feels as smooth and melted as possible.
Pour onto parchment covered cookie sheet into a square shape. Try to pour the outline and fill in the middle to keep it even.
Sprinkle nuts and whatever toppings you are using evenly over chocolate.
Gently pat toppings into the chocolate with the back of your mixing spoon so they stick to the chocolate.
Clear a space in your fridge to cool your creation.
Wait at least one hour, until solid and break into even(ish) sized pieces. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for 10-14 days if it lasts that long.
