Healthy Chocolate Bounty Bars.

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. 

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

We started off by putting dessicated coconut, coconut milk and a small dash of maple syrup in to a food processor.  Then blend until all the mixture is moist. (full recipe below)

I covered one of our big square dining plates in foil to make the chocolate coconut bars on but you can use a baking tray/dish if you don’t have a square plate. Once your tray is set up spoon the mixture on to it and level with a spatula.

Once the coconut base is ready, break up a bar of dark chocolate into a heat proof 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.

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.

The last step is to put the chocolate coconut bars into the fridge for 1 hour to set. After an hour take out and cut into sections and enjoy.
