Chocolate bounty bars

A little known fact is that coconuts are actually a good source of iron.

Ingredients:

Coconut filling

1 cup coconut milk

4 tablespoons rice malt or agave syrup

3 tablespoons coconut oil

2 cups desiccated coconut

pinch of sea salt.

 

Chocolate coating

1 cup coconut oil

1/2 cup raw cacao powder

4 tablespoons rice malt syrup/honey/agave

pinch of sea salt.

 

Method:

1. To make the filling, put the coconut milk, syrup and coconut oil in a medium sized saucepan and mix over a low heat.

2. Remove saucepan from the heat and mix through the sea salt and desiccated coconut.

3. Line a baking tray with baking paper.

4. Press the coconut mixture into the pan so that it is about 1inch thick.

5. Refrigerate for around 30 minutes until set (if short of time you can speed this up in the freezer).

6. Once set, cut into 10 bars. Then cool in the freezer until very cold.

7. To make the chocolate coating, place the coconut oil, raw cacao powder, syrup and sea salt in a bain marie (a bowl set in a pan of hot water) stirring until smooth and well combined. Allow to cool slightly.

8. Coat the coconut bars with the first layer of chocolate.

9. Place on a tray lined with baking paper and refrigerate until set.

10. When completely set, coat the bars with a second layer of chocolate.

11. Serve straight from the fridge.
