Simple Dark Chocolate Bark (Lower Carb)
One of my personal goals has been to eat less sugar, lower carb (notice that says LOWER not LOW or NON...Haha), and still enjoy life on occasion.

1 teaspoon peanut butter (optional)

1/4 Cup Slivered almonds
Sea Salt (to taste)
In a large microwaveable mug, melt chocolate chips and coconut oil in 30 second intervals. Stir between each interval until chips are melted Immediately add peanut butter. Mix well.
