Chocolate Coconut Bars *raw vegan*

These remind me of nanaimo bars, but they are significantly healthier. Anyone who's tried one says, "Oh my God." I hope you love them too.


2 cups dried desiccated coconut (ground into a powder with a coffee grinder)
1/4 cup maple syrup for those who want to keep it vegan (I use raw honey)
1/2 cup raw coconut oil
2 scoops raw vegan vanilla protein powder (I use Heartland Gold Sprouted Brown Rice Protein Powder and the scoop I used is the one that comes with it)
1/2 cup cocoa butter
1 cup dried desiccated coconut
1 cup ground walnuts

1 cup raw cocoa powder
1/2 cup cocoa butter
1/2 cup raw coconut oil
3 Tbsp maple syrup or raw honey


To make the crust, mix all of the ingredients together and press into a parchment paper lined 9x9 dish. You will have to melt the cocoa butter and possibly the coconut oil using the double boiler method before mixing it in. Then, pop the crust in the freezer while you prepare the topping.

Melt the coconut oil and cocoa butter for the topping, again using the double boiler method, and mix in the cocoa powder and raw honey. Once fully mixed, pour over the crust.

Pop it back in the freezer to harden while you clean up.

This dessert is extremely rich, so be sure to cut it into small pieces. A little smackerel is all you'll need. Plus, they might just last a little bit longer that way.
