HOMEMADE PALEO VEGAN CHOCOLATE COCONUT BARS

You guys wanted healthy recipes using shredded coconut so I’m here to deliver, with this recipe for healthy chocolate coconut bars! 

Unsweetened shredded coconut, chocolate, peanut butter, coconut oil and pure maple syrup is all you’ll need to enjoy this low carb chocolate recipe!

While it is technically considered to be a healthy keto friendly dessert, I would be one to advocate it being considered an everyday snack as well. 

Whenever I have a gathering, event, party or a pot-luck to attend, homemade crunch bars have become my standard recipe. Initially, I would use my paleo chocolate coconut bars recipe, but these have taken first place- There is just something about the combination of chocolate, coconut and some added crunch which takes it up a notch!

Recently, I shared a keto crunch bar recipe, but this one is a little bit different. Instead of loading up on nuts, we are focusing on unsweetened shredded coconut, along with some seeds for the crunch factor.

ALTERNATIVES TO SHREDDED COCONUT

  • Crunchy cereal ideas- Rice crispy cereal, Chex cereal or gluten-free cereal.
  • Grains- Rolled oats and quinoa flakes can add a delicious chewy texture. 
  • Nuts and seeds- Healthy fats for satiety and added crunch
  • Unsweetened dried fruit- To amp up the sweetness, or add a mix of sweet and tart
  • Combination- Use a combination of all of the above

PEANUT-FREE SPREADS AND NUT-BUTTERS

Peanut butter is considered low carb, vegan and ketogenic friendly. However, it isn’t paleo. For those following a strict paleo or peanut-free diet, the options below are all fantastic alternatives. 

  • Peanut-Free Nut Butters- I prefer using almond butter or cashew butter, as they are both mild in flavor and mix very well. 
  • Nut-Free Spreads- Sunflower seed butter, wow butter and tahini can all be used. Be wary that tahini can be slightly bitter and be overpowering in taste.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Line an 8 x 8-inch tray or pan with parchment paper and set aside. 
  • In a large microwave-safe bowl or stovetop, combine your chocolate chips of choice, peanut butter (or nut/seed butter of choice), sticky sweetener and coconut oil. Melt until combined. 
  • Add your shredded unsweetened coconut and nuts/seeds and mix until fully combined. Pour your mixture into the lined pan and spread out evenly, using a spatula. Refrigerate until firm. 

Notes

* The best sticky sweeteners are pure maple syrup or agave nectar. For a ketogenic friendly sticky sweetener, use a monk fruit sweetened syrup, NOT sugar-free pancake syrup. 
Paleo Vegan Chocolate Coconut Crunch Bars (Keto, Low Carb) can be kept at room temperature, in a sealed container.

  1. I’m type I diabetic, what can I use for the “sticky sweetener” in your recipe? The sugar free chocolate chips are great! Thanks for all of your recipes!!!! Love them!!

  2. The mini chocolate chips you suggest are 8 net carbs per tablespoon. That’s a ton of carbs. I’ll figure out an alternative with lots less.

  3. There’s something about the combination of chocolate and coconut that is absolutely amazing. I actually prefer pairing coconut with something rather than just having it on its own! These chocolate coconut crunch bars would probably be perfect for a midnight snack! Do you know if you can use dark chocolate squares rather than chocolate chips?

  4. In the bars pictured, did you add 1.5C seeds/nuts in addition to the peanut butter? If so, what did you add? Thanks!

  5. These are fabulous! And so easy! We’ve been keto for a year now, and loving it. Just found your website last week, and this is the first of your recipes I have tried. Excellent! Thanks! =)

  6. Where can I get the unsweetened coconut? I mean find it sweetened everywhere, or do I need to buy a fresh coconut and go thru all the NOT so fun course to breaking into it and opening the thing like tryingvto get into a secure bank vault?
    Will the Chocolate Nibs, sugarfree yet sweetened?
    And will Yucon syrup work for the sticky sweet?, it is naturally sweetened? Great for keto diet!
    Your help and answers would be greatly appreciated.
    Many thanks and great websit, love finding such easy, yummy treats great even if not dieting.
