Coconut and Chocolate - such a classic combo! Elora grew up with Bounty Bars as her favourite chocolate bar, and Sara has always been a fan of coconut rough. Sara created this recipe as something to have on hand for her kids sweet fix, and it's quickly become a family favourite.
Quickly whipped up on a Sunday night, it's perfect to go into the kid's lunchboxes all week long as a delicious energy hit with plenty of good quality fats from the coconut.
Complimented with N&T's Belgian Dark Chocolate, this slice really is a winner!
- 3 cups Desiccated Coconut
- 1/4 cup Maple Syrup
- 3/4 cup Coconut Oil, melted
- 1 tsp Vanilla
- Pinch of Salt
- 100g Chocolate Chips
- 2/3 cup of Almond or Cashew Butter
Mix together desiccated coconut, maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla and a pinch of salt. Spread 2/3 of the mixture into a lined or greased baking tin.
Melt together your chocolate chips and almond or cashew butter, stirring until completely combined and smooth. Spread this over top of the bottom coconut layer.
Top the chocolate layer with the remaining coconut mixture in an even layer. Cover and chill overnight or until set.
