Dark chocolate (>60% cacao) is loaded with antioxidants and typically contains less sugar than semi-sweet or milk chocolate varieties. If you’re looking for a vegan, or allergy friendly option, there are many dark chocolate options available at grocery stores to meet your needs.

Combine the puffed quinoa and melted chocolate in a bowl and stir to combine. Spread evenly on a parchment lined baking sheet to desired thickness. I recommend 1/4 inch.

Crumble the pumpkin seed bar on top of the chocolate mixture and press lightly with hands or the back of a spoon to ensure it sticks to the chocolate. Place in freezer for one hour. Remove it from the freezer and break into pieces. Place in an airtight container and store in refrigerator for up to one month.
