  • Author: Everyday Gourmet with Blakely


  • 1 1/2 cups shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 2 cups dark chocolate chips
  • Chopped almonds


  1. In a bowl combine the shredded coconut, melted coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla extract until combined
  2. In a small pan lined with parchment paper add the coconut mixture. The smaller the pan you use (like a loaf pan) the thicker your bars will be
  3. Using the back of a spatula press down firmly
  4. Put them into the freezer to let them set up for about 15 minutes
  5. While they’re freezing melt your chocolate. In a microwave safe bowl add the chocolate chips and coconut oil. Microwave for thirty seconds, give it a stir, and then microwave on 15 second intervals stirring in between until completely melted
  6. Take the coconut bars out of the freezer, cutting into squares
  7. Dip the bottom of the squares into the melted chocolate and place them on a new sheet of parchment paper
  8. Once they’ve all been dipped take the remaining chocolate and liberally drizzle it over the top
  9. Sprinkle the top with almonds and put them back into the freezer to set up another 5 minutes before eating
  10. They’re best if stored in the freezer (if you don’t eat them all at once)
  11. That’s it! A healthy and delicious coconut treat that you won’t feel guilty eating. Enjoy!
