Bountiful Coconut Chocolate Bar
Are you a coconut lover or is someone you know? If so, these sugar-free chocolatey bars are for you. The crisp snap of dark chocolate with the fresh, fruity, nutty taste of coconut makes a treat to satisfy any coconut or chocolate craving. Due to the carb count (35 grams per serving), these are not a good choice for keto-dieters, but for everyone else (including diabetics), these are a lovely indulgence.
Servings: 4 large squares
- 1½ cups desiccated/shredded unsweetened coconut
- 1 tbsp Swerve sweetener
- 1½ tbsp coconut oil
- 4 tbsp water
Lay out all of the ingredients.
Place the coconut oil in a small saucepan, and heat gently until melted.
Add the desiccated coconut, sweetener and water. Mix for a couple of minutes, then remove and set aside to cool.
Place your chocolate layer ingredients together in a glass bowl, and microwave until melted – a minute or so on full should do the job.
Otherwise the bain marie method will do.
Pour a few spoons of the chocolate in the base of the Tupperware or pan. Place in the freezer to solidify – 20 minutes or so should do the trick.
Remove from freezer, and spoon the coconut filling on top of the chocolate base, and place in the freezer for a further 15 minutes.
Remove from freezer, and pour the remaining chocolate on top of the coconut filling – and once again, place in the freezer for 20 minutes to set.
When bar is solid, but not frozen, remove from freezer, and turn upside down. Remove the greaseproof paper.
Cut into your desired shapes. Keep in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
