Homemade vegan sugar-free bounty bar

December 16, 2015 Yael Greenberg

I have a special place in my heart for bounty bars. 

When I grew up in Ukraine, there was absolutely no awareness about eating sugar and my family used to have a box of this coconut chocolate candy in the kitchen. Bounty reminds me of childhood the way apple pie or chocolate chip cookies reminds other people of theirs.

I wanted to make a healthy vegan version of the Bounty candy! Here’s how to make it.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup coconut flakes
  • ½ can of coconut liquid
  • ¼ cup coconut oil (melted into liquid on low fire)
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • sprinkle of Atlantic salt
  • 6 tbsp date or maple syrup (optional: replace each tbsp with a drop of stevia extract)
  • 8 tbsp of good-quality cocoa powder (raw and natural is best)

Preparation:

  • Mix the coconut flakes and liquid. Roll into bars and place in freezer for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  • Melt coconut oil and mix the rest of the ingredients.
  • Dip the coconut bars in chocolate, place on a rack and place in the freezer. Don’t place on a plate because it will cause one side of the bar to not be covered with chocolate. 
  • Keep in freezer and take out 15 minutes before serving. 

Happy clean eating!
