Makes about 2 lbs of bark
2 jumbo Medjool dates, pitted
2 to 4 tablespoons of water
15 oz dark chocolate (I used Green & Black's Organic Dark Chocolate 70%), roughly chopped
1 cup almonds, divided
½ cup goji berries, divided
4 tablespoons hemp seeds, divided
Sea salt flakes to taste
Line a baking sheet with parchment. Set aside.
Using a sharp knife roughly chop the dates.
Place a medium size heatproof bowl over a pot of barely simmering water, making sure that the bottom of the bowl doesn’t touch the boiling water.
Place chopped dates and 2 tablespoons of water in the bowl and stir with a fork until dates are reduced to a smooth paste (depending on the quality of the dates used, you might need to add more water — one tablespoon at a time.)
Add chocolate, stirring until melted and fully combined with date paste.
Remove from the heat and with the help of a spatula fold in ½ cup of almonds, ¼ cup of goji berries, and 2 tablespoons of hemp seeds.
Spread onto the prepared baking sheet in an even layer to desired thickness.
Scatter remaining almonds, goji berries, hemp seeds, and sprinkle a couple of pinches of salt flakes.
Using a small spoon, gently press down the superfoods into the chocolate.
Refrigerate the bark for about 30 minutes, until hardened. Invert the bark onto a work surface. Remove the parchment paper, break into pieces and store in an airtight bag or container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
