Ingredients for the coconut bars

  • 2 cups shredded coconut + more to sprinkle on top
  • 2 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (or rice syrup)
  • 1/2 cup full-fat canned coconut milk

Ingredients for the chocolate coating

  • 1 1/2 cups baking chocolate or chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil


  • In a mixing bowl add all the ingredients for the coconut bar and mix and knead them with your hands until you can form the bars. 
  • Put the bars on a baking sheet and place them in the freezer for an hour or in the fridge to harden for a couple of hours or overnight.
  • For the chocolate coating, heat the baking chocolate together with the coconut oil and whisk until smooth and liquid. 
  • Dip the coconut bars into the chocolate until they are coated with chocolate from all sides. Sprinkle with more shredded coconut. Put them in the fridge again until the chocolate is hard and then they ready to eat :) 


Keep them in the fridge for storage, because the chocolate melts rather quickly :)
