So a treat I used to know and love are bounty bars. The coco-nutty goodness of those babies was a summer staple. But as I learnt more and more about nutrition, the less I wanted to eat them. So alas, I don’t eat bounty bars anymore. However, don’t fear! You can make them yourself super easily! It only takes 5 ingredients.
350g shredded coconut
1 vanilla bean
1 tbsp honey
2 tbsp coconut oil
100g dark chocolate
Put 250g of the coconut and the vanilla bean into a food processor, and process until it forms a smooth paste (this usually takes 5 – 8 mins on high speed). You may need to add the coconut oil here if it isn’t forming a paste easily. Once its blended add the honey and the coconut oil (if not already added) and blend again. Add remainder of coconut and mix with a spoon. Roll into small balls and place on a tray lined with baking paper. Put in the freezer until solid.
Melt dark chocolate on stove, then dip coconut bites into chocolate until covered (I use a fork for this, and let the extra chocolate drip off). Place back on tray and freeze until chocolate solidifies.
The only trick here, is to not eat them all at once-because they are pretty taste. You could make them even healthier by making your own raw chocolate to cover them.
