The base tastes like a chocolate macaroon, a sweet chocolate ganache made from whipping cream, cocoa powder, almond butter, and sweetener (I used xylitol, but you can also use half the amount in Gentle Sweet) forms the middle, and coarsely chopped sea-salted almonds finish off the top. You’ll only need a small piece since these squares are so decadent; one batch makes 25-30 servings.

Yield: 25-30 squares

  1. I’m not super crazy for chocolate (except for certain times of the month), so I’ve been pondering if I could do this recipe and substitute peanut flour for the cocoa in the ganache. Do you think it would turn out anything like the creamy part on Nature Valley Sweet n salty almond bars? Maybe with a bit of almond extract added? I actually didn’t notice the second mention of cocoa when I read it over the first time, and somehow pictured it with a creamy almond you ganache on top, and now I want to make it happen!

  2. This is so good! I cannot stand the skinny chocolate, this is soooooo much better!
    I use pyure sweetener in half the amount called for in the recipe. This is a keeper for sure.
    I am so glad to have found this site, I love that you stick with ingredients that are on plan, simple and usually on hand.
