Homemade Chocolate Covered Coconut Bars are healthy, easy to make and addictive! Simple ingredients like organic coconut oil, shredded coconut and honey.
I bought a large container of organic coconut oil, it is suppose to be good for you, right? Now what do I do with a large amount of coconut oil. Firstly I tried frying my Panko Crusted Chicken in it. No go, my husband didn’t like chicken tasting like coconut. Secondly, a friend said she ate it right out of the jar, a couple of teaspoons a day. No go, I felt like I was eating Crisco. Next came making a bar from it. Coconut chocolate bars are one of my favorites, so why not a healthy version. Huge hit, these Chocolate Covered Coconut Bars taste amazing! Simple ingredients sweetened only with organic honey. Now I can get all the healthy benefits of coconut oil in a tasty little treat.
