Raw Bounty Bars


Ingredients:

1 cup coconut butter

2 1/2 cup shredded coconut

1/4 cup honey

1/4 cup coconut oil

1 tbsp coconut yoghurt or coconut cream (optional)

Double Batch Raw Chocolate

 

Method:

Soak shredded coconut in water for 20 mins (not essential but this will help soften the coconut and make for a softer filling)

Melt coconut butter, coconut oil, honey over a double boiler. 

Drain coconut through sieve and gently squeeze, leaving a little water still in coconut.

Put drained coconut in food processor with melted ingredients.

Add in yoghurt or coco cream, if you have some handy, will create even moister/creamier texture, but not essential!

Blend to combine. I prefer a smoother texture, so blend for 60 seconds until shreds are slightly broken up, can blend for less if prefer more texture.

Press into a lined tray and smooth down the top.

Put in freezer to harden for 15 mins.

Prepare a double batch of our Raw Chocolate Recipe.

Once choc is made, let cool for a few mins, to thicken.

Cut hardened coconut insides into desired shapes (I went for 2 x 5cm-ish blocks).

With a fork gently dip each block into chocolate bowl, coating completely in chocolate and placing on lined tray.

Harden bars in fridge & marvel at the fact you're now a chocolatier!
