Healthy Chocolate Coconut Bars Recipe

I was a bit apprehensive about making these healthy chocolate coconut bars as I thought they would be complicated to make and we would just end up with mushy coconut and chocolate everywhere. 

However, I was shocked at just how easy and quick these are to make and best of all they are healthy and delicious. The coconut was so fluffy and with the chocolate on top they set my taste buds tingling.

4. Once the coconut base is ready, break up a bar of dark chocolate into a heatproof bowl and melt either in the microwave or over a bowl of hot water on the hob. Making sure you keep stirring the chocolate all the time through heating (if using the microwave I do 30-second blasts then check and stir until it is melted)

5. When the chocolate is completely melted and there are no lumps, drizzle it over the coconut base and then gently level out with the spatula until the base is totally covered.
