Bounty Bars

Ingredients

  • 2 Cups of Desiccated Coconut (180g)
  • 1/2 Cup of Melted Coconut Oil (125ml)
  • 3 Tablespoons of Honey/Maple Syrup
  • 120g of Dark Chocolate

I’m a coconut fiend as of late and these are the dream. This homemade version of a Bounty is honestly just as good and doesn’t have any of the processed or sugar filled ingredients of the store bought bars. The filling is so delicious, sweet and with the perfect crumbliness. They’re quick and easy to make and only use four ingredients that you probably have in your cupboard already.

Add everything except the chocolate to your food processor and blend on high for about five minutes (five actual minutes, don’t stop!). You are trying to cream the coconut rather than just mix everything together. When it’s ready it should look fluffy but when you squeeze it in your hands it should stick together.

Press the mixture firmly into a baking tin lined with parchment paper. Don’t worry if you’re tin is too big to fill, just make sure the mixture is pressed really firmly in.

Pop it in the freezer for about half an hour to set. Melt your chocolate and lay out some parchment paper on a large plate or baking sheet.

Remove the coconut from the freezer and slice into whatever shape/size you want the bars to be.

Dip the bars into the dark chocolate and place them on the parchment paper.

When you’ve coated all of them put them in the fridge or freezer until the chocolate hardens.

Serve and enjoy! Store them in the fridge.

    These must be fantastic! I can’t find coconut oil where I live. Can I replace it with something else?

      Hi Irene, unfortunately coconut oil is very important for this recipe. Have you tried ordering it online? I’m not sure where you’re based but there are lots of websites that deliver x
