Gluten-Free Vegan Salted Pistachio and Cranberry Chocolate Bark is made with clean, real food ingredients and it’s vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo-friendly and contains no refined sugar.
This Gluten-Free Salted Pistachio and Cranberry Chocolate Bark is a simple and quick dessert to make and only uses 5 ingredients.
Normally, I would have used a homemade chocolate recipe (raw cacao powder, coconut oil and maple syrup), but since this would be a good dessert to make during the busy holidays or to bring to a get-together, I decided to make it extra easy by using clean mini-chocolate chips instead.
The brand I like to use is Enjoy Life, because of their minimal (3) ingredient list, they are Non-GMO Project Verified, vegan, gluten-free and soy-free.
Most commercial store-bought chocolate bark products contains GMO ingredients.
Here’s the ingredient list for a similar store-bought brand:
S.A.D. (Standard American Diet) President’s Choice Dark Chocolate Candy Cane Bark
Ingredients: Chocolate Dark (Sugar, Chocolate Unsweetened, Cocoa Butter, Milk Fat, Soy Lecithin, Flavors Natural and Artificial), Sugar, Corn Syrup, Peppermint Oil, Colors, Soy Lecithin
It contains refined sugar, GMO dairy and other GMO ingredients (corn syrup, soy lecithin), as well as, artificial flavors.
This healthier version contains clean, real food ingredients and it’s vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo-friendly and contains no refined sugar.
