No-Bake Rocky Road Bars (Only 90 Calories)

Rocky Road Chocolate Bars
By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

Rocky Road is a classic dessert that’s been around for years. Since it’s typically on the not-so-great-for-you list, I’ve gone ahead and turned this favorite into a no-bake, healthier version that can be made as simple or as complex as you wish! You can make a nutty Rocky Road , a ginger based Rocky Road  with nuts, a dried fruit and almond Rocky Road , or really, any combination of dried fruit with nuts and seeds, and BAM, you have a delicious homemade Rocky Road on your hands. The traditional Rocky Road is full of artificially colored marshmallows, colored sweetened cherries and roasted peanuts with processed melting chocolate which normally contains trans fats and other nasties. Here we have filled this treat with high quality nutrient-packed produce to enjoy as a delicious smart sweet served at a party, with family and friends or as a occasional treat for yourself!
