Chocolate coconut bars

Only these beauties could make Monday tolerable 😍

I’ve always been coconut obsessed. Coconut lotion, candles, shampoo, you name it, I’ve used it. Coconut somehow transports you to warmer days, dreaming of your toes in the sand 🌴 When those dreams are also wrapped in chocolate, I call it heaven πŸ™ŒπŸ»

These cookie bars are gluten free, grain free, and contain NO refined sugar. Enjoy a little sweetness without the guilt!

Here’s what you need..

1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

1 1/2 cups milk or semi sweet chocolate chips

2 cups almond flour

1/2 cup coconut sugar

1 cup Β melted unrefined coconut oil

2 eggs

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 tbsp peanut butter (optional)

1 tbsp furtherfood collagen

PREHEAT OVEN TO 375

  1. Combine the dry ingredients in a medium bowl and whisk together.
  2. In another bowl, combine your wet ingredients || You always want your eggs room temp, otherwise when you mix in the coconut oil, it could harden||
  3. Combine the dry with the wet ingredients, and don’t forget about those chocolate chips!
  4. Pour into a 8×8 greased baking dish. Making sure it’s an even layer || I grease mine with coconut oil, you could use butter or ghee||
  5. Sprinkle some extra coconut flakes and chocolate chips on top
  6. Place the dish on the center rack of your oven and bake for about 35-40 minutes. You want to check to see if they’re done by putting a knife in the middle. When it comes out clean, they’re done!
