Chocolate enthusiasts, get ready to emBARK on a delicious journey of sweet, salty, and crunchy. My Super Seed Bark is a terrific snack or dessert that you can enjoy whenever a craving strikes. I love experimenting with different seed combinations, but I have a soft spot for the nutrient-packed trio of sunflower, pumpkin, and hemp seeds, which provide a wealth of plant-based protein, healthy fat, vitamins, and minerals. The addition of hemp seeds not only adds a dose of omega-3 fats but lends a charming touch of white, reminiscent of nonpareils or Sno-Caps…aka my go-to movie theater indulgence in my pre-nutritionist days, haha.

Recipe notes:

  • • Feel free to mix and match with your favorite seeds or what you have on hand—sesame seeds, chia seeds, or any combo of the ones included in the recipe below (pumpkin, sunflower, and hemp seeds). 
  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes ~ 24 pieces
  • • 2 cups semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips, melted
    • ¼ cup hemp seeds (also called hemp hearts)
    • ¼ cup pumpkin seeds (no shell)
    • ¼ cup roasted sunflower seeds (no shell)
    • ¼ to ¾ teaspoon flaked sea salt or kosher salt

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

Stir the majority of the seeds (about ¾s of each) into the melted chocolate (save the rest for sprinkling on top).

Spread the mixture evenly onto the prepared baking sheet, then sprinkle the reserved seeds and the salt over the top. Use a rubber spatula or your fingers to gently press the toppings into the chocolate so they stick.

Place the bark in the fridge or freezer for at least 20 minutes, or until completely cooled and set. Cut or break it into roughly 24 pieces. Transfer into a storage bag and stash in the fridge or freezer for future treats.  They’ll last in the fridge for up to one week, and in the freezer for up to one month.
