Homemade sugar- and dairy-free Bounty

Searching for a sweet recipe for my sweet, I stumbled across a bounty recipe on Health Food Lover. As I didn’t have more then 60 grams of coconut, I halved the recipe.

    150 ml organic coconut cream
    20 g organic coconut oil
    1 tbsp agave nectar
    1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
    60g organic desiccated coconut (or slightly more)
    150g chocolate (sugar- and dairy free), melted

Heat the coconut cream, oil and sweetner in a pan till combined. Stirr in the vanilla. Take aside and add the desiccated coconut. The mixture should be doughy not runny. Line and grease a square tin and press the dough evenly into it. I wanted it to be done quickly, so I put the tin in the freezer for a few hours (until firm and easy to cut).

Cut into bite sized squares. Leave the tin in the fridge until the chocolate is melted. Cover the coconut squares in chocolate. Place the chocolates on a baking paper and leave them to set.

    • Hi Michelle,
      They tasted delicious!! But turned out a bit soft, should’ve added more coconut or maybe some thickening agent like arrow root. I had to freeze them for a while…then I ran out of chocolate…needed about 150g. Will try again and then update the post 🙂 Trudy
