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.

Another great healthy snack recipe is my Fuel To Go Protein Bars
Awesome Sarah! so glad you enjoyed the recipe
Hi Laureen! I bought shredded organic coconut unsweetened but it is also dehydrated... do I use it dehydrated or do I need to soak it? I feel like this is a silly question but never had it dehydrated.
Hi Deanna, you would not soak it, just use as is. Hope you enjoy the recipe. The mixture will seem quite runny, but will firm up in the refrigerate. Make sure you store bars in the refrigerator or bars may become too soft.
I'm obsessed with the amount of coconut in these! mmm sounds delicious!
For serious coconut lovers only LOL
What size pan?
Hi Annette, thanks for catching that. Use an 8x8 inch baking pan. A 9x9-inch would also work but bars will be a bit thinner.
Absolutely best coconut bar I have personally made!!! Thanks so much for a great recipe!! I read another recipe that had added a bit of coconut cream, would this work here? Thank 🙂
Thanks Tammy, they are one of my favourite guilt free treats as well.
I just made these for my daughter, my husband and myself. My granddaughter enjoyed them too. They are so easy to make! I cut them into much smaller pieces. We all loved them. Will definitely be making them again.
Betsy So glad you and your family enjoyed the recipe
How do you think these would ship? Our Grandson is stationed in Germany and would love these!
I wouldn't take a chance shipping them as the need to stay refrigerated.
hi there from india. how long will they last in the fridge ?
Hi Megha, should last at least a week, tightly sealed so the squares don't dry out
Idk if i missed it but how many servings and calories per serving?
Jennifer, 16 squares, but sometimes I cut it into smaller bite sized pieces.
Absolutely delicious! Thank you for the recipe.
Can I freeze them? We will not eat them within a week and I would hate them to go bad.
Hi Irena, sorry for late response, yes they freeze well.
