Place the butter, coconut oil, xylitol, almond butter and vanilla seeds in a saucepan. Heat over low heat until melted. Whisk in the cocoa powder, ground almonds and coconut and mix until smooth. 

Place the chocolate moulds on a tray that fits into your fridge or freezer. Sprinkle the pistachios and goji berries in the mould. Pour the chocolate mixture on top. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or freeze for 1 hour, if you prefer. 

The chocolate bars cannot be stored at room temperature due to the high oil content. It can be stored in the fridge if you prefer a softer texture or they can also be stored in the freezer if you prefer it with a bit more crunch

TIP: 
Chocolate bar moulds can be purchased from specialized baking stores. You can also use silicone moulds or silicone ice trays for individual chocolate portions.
