Clean Bounty Bars

Clean Bounty Bars
Makes 8-10 bars

Although I’ve never been into candy bars, I have always had a weakness for Bounty (or Mounds/Almond Joy in the US). Something about that sweet and chewy coconutty goodness covered in chocolate…
This recipe packs in the coconut flavor with three different forms of coconut and is sweetened with maple syrup and very dark chocolate- no strange and unpronounceable ingredients here!

1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/2 cup coconut milk
2 Tbsp coconut oil
2 Tbsp maple syrup
100 grams (1 bar) 85% dark chocolate
Combine coconut, coconut milk, coconut oil, and maple syrup in a saucepan over low heat and stir to combine. Press mixture into a container lined with parchment paper for easy removal and freeze until completely solid. Slice into bars and coat or drizzle with melted chocolate. (Melt chocolate by placing squares in a bowl over a small pot of simmering water). Return to the freezer or fridge briefly to set the chocolate and enjoy! Store in the fridge.
