This healthy bark will simplify your holiday baking
With the holidays upon us, you've probably already had a start on your holiday baking. Traditionally, peppermint bark, sugar cookies and marshmallow squares decorated the tables amidst peanut butter balls, fudge, and other rich desserts. Though familiar and nostalgic, those sugar-laden treats can be the tasty treat that sends your tummy to bed early.
Creating guilt-free treats like our peppermint bark bars has become our favourite Nutracelle tradition. Every year we look forward to coming up with healthy alternatives to your favourite indulgences. After all, what good is being nice all year if you can't enjoy the naughty foods you love?!
These bars are easy and require no baking - which means minimal mess. We used this silicon bar mold, but you can use whatever you prefer - or follow our peppermint bark recipe and use a cookie sheet with parchment paper for a thin traditional bite.

That's right, thanks to our plant-based powerhouse NutraVegan, this recipe is gluten-free, peanut-free, tree nut-free, and vegan-friendly!
