While these keto bounty bars are quick and easy, my favourite thing about them is that they store well in the freezer. If I make a big batch of something that perishes quickly, I eat it quickly even when I know I shouldn’t!
Keeping these tasty treats in the freezer means I have to take it out about 30 minutes before I want to eat it, which is enough time to get that full feeling after dinner and avoid a binge.
They store well in the fridge too, but can be a little bit too tempting…
This recipe uses coconut butter, which you can make easily using my 5 minute recipe here.
Keto Coconut Bounty Bars
Quick and simple to make, these chocolate and coconut gems are full of rich coconut flavour. It is optional to toast the coconut, I prefer it!
- 3 cups dessicated coconut unsweetened
- 3 tablespoons powdered xylitol
- 1 teaspoon vanilla paste
- 1 270ml can coconut cream
- 1 tablespoon coconut butter
- 1/8 teaspoon salt just a pinch!
- 80 grams dark chocolate 80 - 90%, unsweetened
- 4 tablespoons coconut butter
- 1 tablespoon cocoa powder unsweetened
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Sprinkle the dessicated coconut on a cookie tray and toast for 5 - 6 minutes until lightly golden.
Combine the warm coconut in a large mixing bowl with the xylitol, vanilla, coconut cream, coconut butter and salt. Stir to ensure it is evenly combined and the coconut butter has melted from the heat of the coconut.
Line a brownie/baking tin of approximately 15cm x 20cm. Press the coconut base firmly into the tin (I find using hands is easiest!)
Refrigerate while you prepare the chocolate top. In a small microwave safe bowl, place the dark chocolate, coconut butter and cocoa powder. Microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring between each. Generally this will be almost completely melted after 1 minutes.
Spread evenly over the coconut base and refrigerate for 1 - 2 hours until completely firm. Cut into squares.
If freezing, store between sheets of baking paper in an air tight container.
