You guys loved the simplicity and deliciousness of my original coconut crack bars that I had to do one better- Add a chocolate coating to it!

If the original version didn’t live up to the ‘crack’ in it, this chocolate spiked version certainly will- Not only is it impossible to stop at one serving, you’ll be struggling to stop at just one batch!

Luckily for you, this recipe could not be any easier and takes less than 5 minutes prep time. Still sticking with the dietary friendly theme, these chocolate coconut bars are completely paleo, vegan and keto-friendly.

I hate to play favorites, but I really think the chocolate coconut combination is really giving my chocolate peanut butter combination a run for its money. 

Granted, both of these combos are a common theme here, but just over the last two months, we’ve had the coconut winning over the peanut butter. Case in point? Homemade bounty bars, no bake brownies, and even snuck in some chocolate chips in these coconut based pancakes

See? It’s like Romeo and Juliet, in edible form. 

Inseparable.

Although I don’t follow a ketogenic, low carb or sugar-free diet, I have found that snacks which fit into these lifestyles to be the most satisfying. I’d always been one to struggle to find a snack or dessert which satisfies the sweet tooth, without the urge to go back for more.

The combination of high healthy fats, no added sugar, and no processed carbs really work wonders and honestly, I have found a small serving goes a long way and my sugar cravings are slowly decreasing! 

That isn’t to say my main meals follow this format- On the contrary. However, in between meals, after dinner or when hunger strikes- This recipe (along with other keto-friendly treats) has been a savior!

When I say this recipe is fool-proof and ridiculously easy, I’m not exaggerating.

5 minutes

No baking

No sugar

4 ingredients

100% grain free and flourless

What are you waiting for? 

I briefly mentioned keto-friendly sweeteners in strictly coconut version, but I’ll reiterate it, as you’ll need (if you choose) to utilize it in the chocolate portion of the recipe.

Low carb and keto friendly sweeteners

Luckily for me, the sweeteners I use in almost all of my recipes are naturally low carb and keto-friendly. These are usually in the form of monk fruit sweetener. 

You can get monk fruit sweetener in either liquid form, granulated (what I use in all my recipes calling for a granulated sweetener) or a monk fruit sweetened maple syrup.

I opted to use a monk fruit sweetened maple syrup, as it provided the best sticky texture for the coconut bars. It mimicked the texture of traditional maple syrup, honey or other like-sweeteners.

If you don’t follow a sugar-free or low carb lifestyle, any of the above-mentioned sweeteners work beautifully. 

A reader advised me that they tried using the granulated sweetener in the original recipe, but added milk to firm up. You can try this, but I honestly cannot vouch for the end result as I haven’t tried it myself. I’d assume if you were to do this, you’d need to keep the bars frozen at all times or move quickly when coating it with chocolate. 

Low carb and sugar free chocolate options

The easiest way to make a low carb and sugar free chocolate (whether it be for coating the bars or allowing to firm up into bars themselves) is to simply combine coconut oil with cocoa powder and your preferred sweetener.

Granted, not all of us have time to do this or find it easier to use a packaged chocolate alternative.

My two tried and tested chocolate are as follows-

Paleo/Vegan/Dairy-Free friends- These mini chips or baking morsels by Enjoy Life are my go-to for any recipe calling for baking chocolate/chocolate chips, etc. They taste fantastic and melt beautifully. 

Keto/Sugar free friends- I use these stevia sweetened chocolate chips, which are great to bake with and perfect for making chocolate desserts for my dad, who is diabetic. 

As someone with an evident sweet tooth, having snacks or healthy desserts like these no bake chocolate coconut crack bars are a lifesaver! Perfect to prep in minutes and ready to grab-and-go whenever the snack monster needs to be tamed!

  1. I made these today…..They are AWESOME! Did 1/3 the recipe due to ingredients on hand and added a few drops of vanilla and used real maple syrup. Will definitely make again! Thanks!

  2. According to the comments in the Q & A section on the Amazon link you gave, the formula for Lily’s Chocolate Chips has changed it’s sweetener from Stevia (highlighted on the front of the package, but listed in last place in the new ingredients list) in favor of Erythritol (second ingredient on the list). The new sweetener is not only unhealthy, but has noticeably changed the overall flavor of the product. Further research for a tasty AND safe chocolate may be in order, because this recipe looks amazing and I can’t wait to try it! Thank you!

  3. Monkfruit sweetener is my latest baking favorite! I love using dairy free chocolate chips to coat anything. Your Stevia sweetened chocolate chips are one of my favorite chocolate brands to use!

  4. Hey Arman, it’s day 1 on my Vegan keto diet and this will be my go-to treat for weekends 😉 Love this! Pinned

  5. These are amazing! Definitely making again but do you have any tips on how to best dip them in the chocolate?? Mine came out looking like a hot mess – a dangerously delicious hot mess, but messy all the same

  6. Thanks for amazing recipe. I pressed 20 almonds into tops before firming up in the fridge. Then cut and dipped in chocolate. They are a lot like an almond joy ?
    MrsD

  7. Fantastic! So delicious! I added almonds on the top and these taste like Almond Joys! Will make and share these! ??

  8. Wondering why you refer to ‘shredded coconut flakes’… Confused me mightily, since the coconut I know comes either shredded or flaked, and they’re quite distinct. Your link is to shredded coconut, but by the time I found that I’d already bought flakes – a mistake it turns out, and it would be good if you clarified your recipe.

  9. Please do not use ‘ crack’ in recipes to describe something really good These recipes are good – crack is bad.It destroys lives and causes death.These opposing concepts should never be combined or taken lightly.Please promote enlightenment in dropping the word ‘ crack’ to describe recipes.There are infinitely more appropriate descriptive words to use Thank you..

  10. In reply to Candace (November 26, 2017) and Kellie (November 11, 2018) this article may clear up any misconceptions about the sweetner, Erythritol. . Arman, your 4 Ingredient Paleo Vegan Chocolate Coconut Crack Bars look scrumptious! Can’t wait to try them!
