💥Oh, you are in for a treat today! You are going to LOVE this one.
💫If you haven’t used coconut butter before, it’s different from coconut oil.
⭐If you can’t find it, you can easily substitute extra almond butter or use your favorite nut butter. It just won’t have as much coconut flavor.
🥥 No-Bake Coconut Almond Bars
(Makes 8 servings)
🥥 Base Layer:
1 cup (80 g) shredded coconut (unsweetened)
¼ cup (20 g) oat flour (grind rolled oats in a food processor or high-speed blender)
¼ cup (60 g) coconut butter
¼ cup (60 g) almond butter
¼ cup (60 ml) maple syrup or honey
¼ tsp sea salt or more to taste
½ tsp pure vanilla extract
3 tbsp dark chocolate (80% cacao or higher) chopped
1 tbsp coconut butter
1 tbsp maple syrup or honey
Lightly grease a 9×5-inch (23×13-cm) loaf pan with cooking spray or coconut oil and set aside.
To make the base layer, mix together the shredded coconut and oat flour in a bowl. Set aside.
Over low heat in a small saucepan, heat the coconut butter, almond butter, and maple syrup until smooth. Add the vanilla and salt, and remove from the heat.
Slowly stir the saucepan ingredients into your coconut/flour mixture bowl, working it until it forms a ball. Place the mixture into your prepared loaf pan and spread evenly. Place in the refrigerator to cool.
To make the topping, melt the chocolate, coconut butter, and maple syrup in a small pan on the stove on low heat. When it’s melted and smooth, spread it evenly over the base layer.
Let cool, and when it’s set, cut into 8 equal portions. DELICIOUS!
