Ingredients

  • 2 c. shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1/4 c. coconut oil
  • 1/4 c. honey
  • 1/4 t. kosher salt
  • 1/2 c. chocolate chips (I used diary free ones)

Method

Step 1

Warm coconut oil until it is liquid. Place everything except the chocolate chips in a blender and blend on high until smooth. (This will take about 5 minutes or so.) Spread into a 9x5 plastic container or something foil-lined. Freeze for about 15 minutes. While coconut mixture is freezing, melt chocolate chips. Spread melted chocolate over frozen coconut and stick in the freezer again until chocolate is hardened. Pop out of container/remove foil and chop into pieces. Consume. : ) Store leftovers in the fridge.

    looks great but…how are chocolate chips paleo? why not take raw cacao powder, melted coconut oil and xylitol (ok, or a little maple syrup – better than white sugar choc chips!), stir it together and spread that on top??? It’s amazing!:)

    Hi Sarah, I like to make it with cocoa, coconut oil and honey, but for this recipe I had dairy-free chocolate chips on hand, so I used them. :) Feel free to make whatever substitutions you want.

    This tastes great but putting in blender did not work just bogged it down and I have a vitamix. I transferred it all to food processor worked much better. Also the size of pan to use seemed way to big I used a loaf pan. A do over and over recipe for sure especially for summer, no heating up an oven!

    These came out perfect! I did not measure the enjoy life ch chips. I just poured some in a bowl and melted them. I told my boyfriend they were almond joy bars. He kept telling me how good they were. : ) That is the true test as he doesn’t eat “healthy food.” They were so easy. I will make them again.

    I added toasted almonds to the top. Absolutely amazing.

    Making these in my Vitamix, someone mentioned it bogged it down but not here at all. Turned out silky smooth and tastes yummy! And that’s without the choco chips on there! I can’t wait for the final product!
