Coconut packed and cacao covered there’s not a bad thing in there. And they taste sensational. Takes all of 10 mins to make, if a little bit of a chocolatey mess time, and not much longer to eradicate. A protein and fibre rich treat with antioxidants and real good stuff like thiamin, copper and manganese that helps with connective tissue growth and brain activity. I hid these from my husband after he had 4…..

Ingredients

  • 1 ยฝ Cups Shredded coconut (unsweetened)
  • 2 – 3 Egg whites
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp Coconut Oil, melted

Choc coating

  • ยผ cup cacao powder
  • ยฝ cup coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup or honey
  • 200g 70% chocolate melted

Method

Whisk egg whites in a large bowl until frothy but not stiff at all, about 1 minute.

Mix in coconut, shredded, oil and syrup, so that mixture is thick and sticky, use enough egg white to stick together.

Line a square baking tin with cling film or baking paper and press the mixture down firmly into a flat, even square with a spatula. Freeze until solid.

Melt the chocolate in a bain-marie, bowl sitting on a saucepan of hot water.

Or melt coconut oil in a small pan, add the other ingredients and stir well.

Remove coconut from freezer. Slice into 4 x 2 inch bars, and using forks or your fingers, coat with the melted chocolate by dipping thoroughly. Place on a large, lined baking sheet back in the freezer or fridge until needed. Keep well in the fridge for a week or so and in the freezer for 3 months.

    LOVING the new website, Lizzie, it may have been some time coming but it looks fantastic and will really anchor your brilliant work. Super accessible, I can’t wait to start to make….Congratulations!!!

  2. I would really like to make these but I’m struggling to find shredded coconut. Where can I find some or is there an alternative I can use? Thanks

      It’s the same as dessicated coconut. Just make sure it’s unsweetened. I hope you like these, they’re a winner in our house. X

  3. How long roughly do you leave for the coconut slab in the freezer for? Is it something that you can make the chocolate whilst it is freezing or do you need to come back to make the chocolate so that is doesn’t go solid?
    Thanks
