Low-Carb Chocolate-Covered Coconut Bars

Serves 5

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut
  • 1/3 cup coconut cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract, divided
  • 1 packet stevia, divided
  • 2 ounces cocoa butter
  • 2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

Preparation

  1. Using a spatula or spoon, mix the shredded coconut, coconut cream, 1/2 tsp vanilla extract and 1/2 packet of stevia together.
  2. Line a small cookie sheet with parchment paper. Place the coconut mixture onto the cookie sheet, then shape it into a 4 x 6 x 1 rectangle. Put it in the freezer for about 2 hours or until it is solid.
  3. Remove the coconut mixture from the freezer, then cut it into 5 equal bars.
  4. To make the chocolate coating, melt the cocoa butter in a small saucepan until it is liquified. Add the cocoa powder as well as the remaining vanilla extract and stevia. Mix everything together well on low heat for about 2 minutes.
  5. Allow the cocoa mixture to cool to room temperature, but do not let it harden.
  6. Dip each coconut bar into the cocoa mixture, covering all sides, then place it back onto the cookie sheet. Put the bars into the refrigerator to harden.
  7. The bars can be stored either in the refrigerator or at room temperature.
