Niki- this one’s for you.

The day Niki got her license, we went out to celebrate with a good meal and movie. By good meal and movie, I mean Nandos chicken and chips and the second session of Harry Potter. Okay, so it was probably not so much a celebration than a bored Saturday night. I digress.

Niki was ‘celebrating’ finally obtaining her driver’s license.

I, however, was celebrating not being her chauffeur anymore.

It’s not that I didn’t enjoy driving THAT much- I actually don’t mind it. It was the little ‘gifts’ she would leave after every. Single. Trip.

Sometimes it was her lip gloss.

Sometimes it was a few coins (they became donations in my glove box).

Most of the time, it was empty bounty wrappers. Those infamous, shiny blue and white wrappers would be enrobed within my car seats, behind the seats and even occasionally in the boot. Don’t ask me how they got there. Niki had no excuses. Believe me, she tried.

She literally used every excuse in the book.

‘Its not mine, It’s moms.’ (Mum hates coconut)

It’s not mine, it’s Ingrid’s. (Ingrid prefers gummy candy. She also has had Invisalign treatment)

‘the wind blew it in.’ (How obscure- always the same chocolate….)

‘It’s not mine. It’s Christine’s. (…..Christine is diabetic)

Safe to say, Niki thought I was a twat but she was wrong. Sorry, Niki- it was all you.

When I was back in Melbourne, we went for a drive in her car and let’s just say there was no room for me to leave any ‘gifts’- I tried with a cookie wrapper from the airplane, a gum wrapper, and even a pen. Nope.

I could be all fancy schmancy and say that this recipe was created out of those ‘lovely’ car memories but that would be a lie. Because a recipe this good cannot be ascertained from that kind of memories.

Although a bounty bar typically is made of sugar, milk chocolate, coconut, sugar, and sucre (French for sugar), I took it upon myself to give it a healthy makeover without sacrificing on taste. Let’s chuck a challenge and make it paleo too. That means it makes the Vegans happy, the gluten intolerant happy and the grain free advocates happy.

The best bit? These are so easy to whip up and with just 4 ingredients– you’ve probably got them already in your pantry. They take less than five minutes to prep and are diet friendly- Seriously, you’ll never buy a packaged candy bar ever again!

    1. My father would love these, bountys are one of his favourite sweets. He seems to like coconut sweets, for Christmas we always have to make coconut macaroons for him (no complaints!).
      Since I’m the younger sister who had been carried around by her bestest big neither I should have been the one to leave behind gifts. But if course I didn’t do that. I’m a nice sister! (And I’m neat)

      1. I did, actually- A while back I made no bake double coconut rice crispy treats using peanut butter as the binder and a coconut peanut butter- it was awesome!

    2. Well played, sir, well played. And I don’t trust diabetics. You know the chocolate is always theirs (I say this hoping that people know full well I am taking the piss).
      We always used to find Skittles and the lone french fry in our cars. I like to think that my car isn’t so much messy as lived in, but it is a little dustyl

    3. I don’t even like bounty and I’m tempted by them! UK reader here, been planning with some friends a backpacking trip across Australia and New Zealand next year, nearly forgot they had no idea who you were and got all excited when we were planning on going to Melbourne, whoops 😛 hahah blog reading/stalking problems.

      1. Jenni- not at all! Please shoot me an email- I’d be more than stoked to meet up with readers 🙂

    4. Hehe its funny you said about Bounty, as here in America they are called Almond Joy! And actually, don’t hate me, but I am not that big of a fan, whenever we would get the celebrations box (you get those in Australia too right?), the bountys would always be the ones left! I love the idea of homemade ones though, yum!

      1. I LOVE CELEBRATION BOXES! Please tell me you have Cadbury favourites? we need to discuss the pecking order.

          1. I’ve never heard of miniature heroes…off to check it out now!

            Twirl? No way! Turkish delight 😉

    5. Look at you, vegan and gluten-free! Just for me 😉 And all those coconut ingredients! Phenomenal!
      I am just thankful I don’t have to drive anymore since living in the city now for college! When I go home for winter break….I’m scared I’ll forget how to drive though, haha!

      1. I whore’d out the coconut! I wish my city was walkable- I’m WAYYY too reliant on my car!

    6. Ummm…these look delicious, Arman! I’ve been thinking about your post from the other day about trying different diets for a week at a time. It hit me this morning while I was working out that I want to be Cookie Monster for a week. Is that acceptable? I’ll even wear a furry, blue costume. And I totally think these bounty bars quality for a Cookie Monster diet. Just sayin’.

      1. Mate- i went through a stage recently where I posted cookies because I made single serve cookies and considered them breakfast. It was pretty awesome.

        Let’s get cookie monster diet trending.

    7. So…now that my parents are allll about the Weight Watchers I’ve been brainstorming healthier sweet treats for the holidays. These look like a great option my friend! Coconut on coconut. And they are balls. Definitely obscure balls.

      1. How rude. Don’t talk about balls on here.

        I’ll shoot you a message- might be able to meet Saturday at some point!

      1. ahaha I would set a flock of birds and squirrels in your car then. Have it cleaned up in no time 😉 Well, your future car.
