No-Bake Thin and Chewy Chocolate Coconut Bars
1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup almond meal
pinch of salt
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1/4 cup coconut oil (This cannot be substituted. It hardens when cold, giving the bars their structure.)
1/4 cup honey
6 Tbs. unsweetened cocoa powder
2 Tbs. coconut oil
1 Tbs. agave, maple syrup, or honey
sprinkle of sea salt
Melt the butter and coconut oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add honey and salt and mix until smooth. Pour over oats and coconut in a medium bowl and mix until incorporated. Press into a greased 9x9 pan and cool in the fridge for 15 minutes.
Then mix the coconut oil, cocoa powder, and agave over low heat until the mixture is smooth. Pour over the bars and distribute evenly with a spatula. Sprinkle with salt. Place in fridge to cool for another 15-30 minutes.
I'm storing mine in the freezer and just setting them out on the counter a few minutes before chowing down!
