Paleo Chocolate Coconut Bars
Free from grain, gluten, eggs, dairy, and refined sugar.
- 2 cups shredded unsweetened coconut
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (I use my homemade stuff)
- 1/4 teaspoon Himalayan salt
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1/3 cup cocoa powder
- 3-4 tablespoons honey (depending on how dark you like your chocolate)
- splash of vanilla extract
- dash of Himalayan salt
Warm coconut oil until it is liquid. Place the base ingredients in a blender (I use this one) and blend on high until smooth. This will take about 5 minutes or so, so be patient!
Spread base into a 9×5 silicone loaf pan (like this one) or you can be super un-crunchy and use a normal one lined with tin foil. No judgment, friend. Well, except for the fact that I just called you super un-crunchy…
Freeze base for about 15 minutes.
While coconut mixture is freezing, mix up topping ingredients. Spread topping over frozen coconut and stick in the freezer again until chocolate is hardened.
Pop out of container/remove un-crunchy foil and chop the Chocolate Coconut Bars pieces.
Store leftovers in the fridge.
You can use 1/2 cup of melted, dairy-free chocolate chips in place of the topping ingredients. (I’ve used these dairy-free ones, but whatever you want will work.)
