The top layer is a roasted almond and chocolate spread, a little like Nutella but made with almonds. It is super yummy, be careful not to eat it all straight from the blender!

Coconut almond bars would make a great dessert. You could cut them into squares and serve garnished with fresh raspberries and herbs like strong mint or lemon thyme that, complement the flavors of chocolate.

I put a pinch of cardamom in the spread, but that is entirely up to you to use it or not. I have originally posted this recipe in November, the season I go obsessed of cardamom – every year.

My plan was to take the rest of it to my work to share with colleagues after eating it for an evening snack with kids. But I made a mistake to leave the kids alone at the table with the bars, and they finished them in now time. What was I thinking??
