Coconut Chocolate Low Carb Bars

If you are someone, who loved coconut chocolates when growing and now sadly too wise to eat them, this will take away the extra carb while retaining the taste and bring back that nostalgia.

You shall need:

Unsweetened, shredded coconut 1 cup

Coconut cream ⅓ cup

Cocoa butter 3- 4 tablespoons

Vanilla extract 1 teaspoon

Unsweetened cocoa powder 2 tablespoons

Stevia to taste

Steps

Combine the ground coconut with coconut cream, half of the vanilla extract and stevia to taste and mix until homogenous.

Take a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and place the mixture on it. Then fold the sheet into a flat rectangle that is about 1 inch in width

Allow to cool in the freezer until it is firm.

Remove from the freezer and cut into bars of the desired size.Now that coconut bars are ready, let's move to chocolate coating:

Melt cocoa butter in a saucepan and add half of stevia and vanilla extract

Keep stirring on low heat till everything is smooth and well combined.

Allow the mixture to cool so it wouldn't melt the coconut bars and dip the bars in the chocolate mixture.

Put the bars onto cookie sheet till they are firm enough to be stored in the refrigerator.

Additional Notes

Stevia should be added slowly till you build up to the exquisite taste. Adding too much too fast will render your chocolate too sweet to eat.

Coconut oil can be used instead of cocoa butter, but it might melt more quickly once removed from the refrigerator.

Makes five bars.

Carbs per serving 4.8 g
