This is a really simple recipe that doesn’t involve any cooking (well, not much!) and it tastes great. I love to call this crack because it can be incredibly addictive! My friends love this recipe.
I make this in bulk and freeze it. It can be eaten stright from the freezer and tasts great with strawberries.
500g desiccated coconut
390ml agave or maple syrup (using more or less will dictate how sweet and sticky your bars will be)
200ml coconut oil (melted in a pan) or use virgin coconut oil.
15ml vanilla essence / extract
1 tsp salt
- Combine all the ingredients in a food processor, or mix by hand.
- Squish the mixture into any small container. You want it to be tightly compact and firm on top.
- Place in the fridge for an hour (or freezer for 15 minutes) before trying to cut into bars or squares.
- If freezing consume within three months.
I find this can often be quite sticky and doesn’t hold it shape too well, but that doesn’t matter because it tastes delicious.
