These bars are super delicious and a very much like a reduced sugar version of the popular Bounty bar.
Coat them with cacao if you prefer but we like a dark chocolate coating.
- 3 cups desiccated coconut
- 3/4 cup coconut cream
- 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- generous pinch sea salt
- 200g dark chocolate
Combine the coconut, coconut cream, coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla extract and salt together in a bowl.
Shape the mixture into small oblong shaped logs.
Place on a paper or foil lined tray and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Gently melt the dark chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water or in the microwave on reduced heat.
Dip each bar in chocolate to coat and then return to the tray.
Allow to set at room temperature.
