Coconut Chocolate Bars

I have cut these bars into shapes using cookie cutters and used them as cake toppers and decoration. Either way, they are a delicious and highly sustaining dessert that are also great for a snack during the day.

Makes: 8-10




  • 2½ cups desiccated coconut
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp coconut milk (or other plant milk)
  • 120g coconut oil
  • 100g sugar-free chocolate, for coating
  1. Place all ingredients except chocolate in blender and blitz for a few mins, if necessary scraping down the sides a few times.
  2. Transfer to shallow dish or tin, pressing down and flattening to desired thickness.
  3. Cover and place in fridge to set.
  4. Melt chocolate and pour over bars. Return to fridge to set.

Tip: These bars will start to melt if they are out of the fridge for too long, so keep them cool until you’re ready to enjoy them.
