I am so crazy excited for the holidays this year! I mean, I always love this time of year but this is the first one in our new house and I can’t wait. One of my favorite things to do this year is to plan out all of the goodies I am baking to give to friends and family as gifts. Besides my typical Christmas cookies that I make every year, I will also add my Gluten Free Butter Pecan Cookies, my classic Christmas Chocolate Chip Cookies and now this Salted Pecan Dark Chocolate Bark! Who doesn’t love homemade goodies?
As many of you know I have been eating low carb lately and I feel great. I am hoping it will help with my intestinal condition by eating lots of healthy fats and watching my carbohydrate intake. I started off eating low carb and high fat in order to prevent an intestinal blockage from happening again, but I also have gained a ton of energy and I just feel great. I am eating lots of fresh vegetables and moderate amounts of protein (which isn’t too different than what I normally eat) but I am really focusing on adding lots of healthy fats to my daily routine.
The best part of a low carb diet is that you don’t feel deprived. Well, that is, if you follow it correctly. If you want a treat, then go for it. Just make a low carb one. Just like this bark.
You catch my drift?
I used Lily’s sugar free chocolate chips to make this delicious bark. If you aren’t sugar free or low carb, then you can use whatever chocolate you’d like.
I also used Now Foods Raw Pecans (which I always have in my pantry). They not only make the perfect, easy, healthy, low carb snack straight out of the bag, but they are perfect so many of your holiday treats! I always keep Now Foods nuts, seeds and snacks at home and even in my car for a quick, healthy snack. I try to always be prepared!
Don’t think I didn’t notice that the last three posts on my blogs all had pecans in there.
and now this!
I’m in love with pecans. And this bark. I hope you will be too.
