Almond Butter Layer

Paleo Chocolate Topping
- Line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment or wax paper. Clear some space in the freezer for this pan. Set aside at room temperature.
- Make the Almond Butter Layer: In a medium bowl, add Almond Butter Layer ingredients. Using a rubber spatula, stir and fold until thoroughly mixed and thickened, with no flour patches remaining.
- Transfer the almond butter mixture into the prepared baking pan. Using the rubber spatula, smooth into an even layer. Set aside.
- Make the Paleo Chocolate Topping: Use the double boiler method or the following. Add Chocolate Topping ingredients to a medium, microwave-safe bowl. Heat in 20-second increments until chocolate is softened and melty. Stir in between heating, until smooth.
- Pour the chocolate mixture over the almond butter filling. Using a clean rubber spatula, smooth chocolate into an even layer. Tap the pan a few times to help even out the chocolate.
- Transfer pan to freezer. Freeze for 45-60 minutes, or until hardened. Remove from freezer and slice into 16 squares or 32 rectangular bars. Enjoy! Storing instructions below.

- Storing Instructions: On the first day, store in the refrigerator–the topping needs to firm completely. Serve and enjoy within 1 hour.
