Golden Milk Coconut Bark

Golden Milk Coconut Bark may be one of the best ideas I have had in a long time. Seriously, this is the perfect, healthy little treat filled with healthy fats, seeds and anti-inflammatory spices. Have you ever had golden milk? It is a pretty trendy drink right now and for good reason. It is not only insanely delicious but incredibly good for you. The golden color comes from turmeric – a highly potent, hand staining spice full of amazing health properties. You will see a variation of spices in golden milk but the mixture for this bark is really my favorite combination of

  • Turmeric
  • Black Pepper
  • Cardamom
  • Cinnamon
  • Ginger

I love to make different variations of chocolate bark and had the idea one day to make some bark with coconut butter instead and immediately thought of golden milk. I have been super in to turmeric lately so just finding a way to put it in everything. The bold spice flavor pairs perfectly with the sweet coconut. I found that it needed something to balance out the two flavors so added creamy tahini to the batter and it gave it just the right amount of flavor.

The golden milk coconut bark add-ins include some coconut flakes, cacao nibs and pumpkin seeds. These are some of my favorite flavor combinations but feel free to get creative and add your favorite nuts and seeds.

Alright, one QUICK note about coconut butter before sharing the recipe. I find that coconut butter can vary a lot. Some have more oil than others and that will impact how this recipe works. If your coconut butter is fairly runny I would recommend reducing the coconut oil in the recipe to 3 tablespoons. If your coconut butter is pretty thick than keep it at the 4 tablespoons. Just something to be aware of. Oh and don’t forget to stir the tahini really well.
Alright, time to share this amazing GOLDEN MILK COCONUT BARK!

Notes
  1. I find that coconut butter can vary a lot. Some have more oil than others and that will impact how this recipe works. If your coconut butter is fairly runny I would recommend reducing the coconut oil in the recipe to 3 tablespoons. If your coconut butter is pretty thick than keep it at the 4 tablespoons.
  2. I prefer to eat this bark straight from the freezer. I like the crunch it gives but feel free to store it in the refrigerator. If left out on the counter for a long period of time it will start to soften a lot.
