If you love coconut and chocolate then these easy to make, yummy treats are for you. They taste a bit like Bounty Bars, but they are way more healthier because there is no processed sugar. The sweetness comes from dates. But what about the chocolate you say? Yes, it does use chocolate, but you know that’s good for you! Use the best you can find and enjoy every bite. My favourite is Green & Black’s Organic Dark 85%.
Special thanks goes to Shine on Raw, her recipe does not use chocolate so if you would like to try a different mix to coat these treats then head over there.
12 medjool dates, quartered, pits removed Chocolate Coating
Coconut Chocolate Squares
1/2 cup water
3 cups desiccated coconut
50 g ground cashew or macadamia nuts
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
1 tsp pure vanilla essence
pinch of salt
200g Dark Chocolate, 85% (or 70% if you prefer)
12 medjool dates, quartered, pits removed
These can be really morish because they are so tasty, so remember that they are treats and save them for very special occasions or to share with very special people.
