Line up 2 plates with parchment paper to serve as the area your bark will cure.
Melt your coconut oil and peanut butter in a bowl for around 30 seconds in the microwave.
Add together the rest of the ingredients and stir them together. You can taste the mixture and add stevia or salt as needed.
Pour half of the mixture out onto each plate.
Make up the drizzle by melting the coconut oil and chocolate together for 20 seconds in the microwave. You can then use a spoon to drizzle the chocolate onto the bark.
Freeze the bark on the plates for 30 minutes and you can transfer it over to the fridge to enjoy it at your leisure!
