1/4 cup & 2 tbsp of coconut cream
3 tbsp of 100% pure Canadian maple syrup

Chocolate layer:

1/2 cup paleo-friendly, vegan chocolate chips
1/4 cup coconut cream


  1. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with wax parchment paper
  2. Make the coconut bars.
  3. Add coconut flakes, coconut oil, coconut cream and maple syrup to a bender or food processor.  Blend until you get a wet and sticky mixture.
  4. Pour coconut mixture into the pan and press down and smooth until you get a tightly packaged layer, set aside for later.
  5. Make the chocolate layer using a double boiler method.  Add chocolate chips and coconut cream until fully melted.  Pour melted chocolate over the coconut bars.
  6. Freeze for 40 – 70 minutes.  The longer the bars chill, the cleaner and less crumbly the slices.  ENJOY!!

  1. […] Eat it while it’s there because you don’t know when it will be available again – this is one of the problems with holiday eating. We make certain dishes once a year and pig out on them as if it’s our last chance to taste it. You aren’t on death row and this isn’t your last meal. You will be able to eat these foods again and, quite frankly, you can make them whenever you want if they mean that much to you. You will taste chocolate again, I promise, so you don’t need to eat the whole cake. A few bites will do until next time.  If you want to feel like your having a treat but don’t want the guilt try these Paleo friendly chocolate coconut bars the next time you get the urge. https://familyhealthadvocacy.com/paleo-friendly-chocolate-coconut-bars/ […]
