RECIPE OF THE MONTH - CHOCOLATE COCONUT BARS
These Chocolate Coconut Bars are one of the easiest and most popular treats I make for my family and friends. With no nuts, dairy, eggs, or grains, they’re super allergy-friendly. And since they don’t require anything other than a blender and a freezer, they’re perfect for those hot summer days! The only problem with them is figuring out how to not eat the whole pan myself…

I’m almost certain I will be allowed to make these in heaven. And, since there won’t be any guilt there, I’ll be able to make a double batch and eat them all mysel
CHOCOLATE COCONUT BARS
Free of grain, gluten, eggs & dairy.
2 c. shredded unsweetened coconut
1/4 c. coconut oil
1/4 c. honey
1/4 t. kosher salt
1/2 c. chocolate chips (I used these dairy-free ones, but whatever you want will work)
- Warm coconut oil until it is liquid.
- Place everything except the chocolate chips in a blender (I use this one) and blend on high until smooth. (This will take about 5 minutes or so.)
- Spread into a 9x5 plastic container or something foil-lined.
- Freeze for about 15 minutes.
- While coconut mixture is freezing, melt chocolate chips.
- Spread melted chocolate over frozen coconut and stick in the freezer again until chocolate is hardened.
- Pop out of container/remove foil and chop into pieces.
- Store leftovers in the fridge.
