Gluten-free, Dairy-free Bounty Bites

I'd never say that these homemade coconut bars are just as delicious as the real ones unless it was true. I sort of believe that nothing ever tastes like the real thing. But there are a few exceptions. So these sugar-free, homemade bounty bars are the next best thing after my homemade peanut butter cups and my cocoa energy bites. Gluten-free, refined sugar-free, dairy-free, no additives, no colouring, no artificial flavouring. 

Seriously delicious. Amazingly easy recipe. The ideal snack.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 cups dried shredded coconut
  • 1/3 cup raw honey
  • 2tbs coconut oil
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • homemade nutella (see my recipe here) or good dark chocolate

DIRECTIONS

  1. Mix everything together, except the chocolate. You can use a bowl or a food processor. 
  2. Once you have a sticky paste, roll into bites and leave in the freezer for at least an hour.
  3. In the meantime, melt the chocolate. 
  4. Use a toothpick to dip bites into the chocolate.
  5. Pop into the freezer for the last time.

NOTES

- I prefer to use a food processor but if you like the shredded coconut go for the bowl. The food processor makes it more like a cream. 

- Don't skip the part where you put the bites in the freezer before dipping them in the chocolate.

- You can freeze again and give it another chocolate dip, another layer of heaven.

Good fat makes for a good snack! Indulge.
