Dark Chocolate Oatmeal Coconut Bars

Dark Chocolate Oatmeal Coconut Bars

What could be better than coconut and dark chocolate with a bit of raw honey?  Absolutely nothing in my opinion! Here is one of the best “healthy” desserts ever, if you like coconut that is.  It’s especially great because they are easy to make and no oven required.   These are also gluten-free if you use GF oats.  Don’t forget to share…

Dark Chocolate Oatmeal Coconut Bars Recipe makes one 9×9 pan (about 16 squares)

Crust Layer

1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats

1 1/2 cups shredded, sweetened coconut

1/4 cup brown sugar, loosely packed

pinch of salt

1/4 cup unsalted butter

1/4 cup coconut oil (measured solid)

1/4 cup honey

In a large bowl, combine oats, coconut, brown sugar and salt. Heat a small saucepan over low heat and add butter and coconut oil, stirring until melted. Add the butter and oil to the oat mixture, then add the honey and stir very thoroughly until the entire mix is moistened. Press it into the pan and stick in the fridge for 15 minutes.

Chocolate Layer

8 ounces good-quality chocolate

2 tablespoons coconut oil (measured solid)

Using the same saucepan that you melted the butter and oil in, add the chocolate and oil and stir over low heat until melted. Remove the pan from the fridge and pour the chocolate evenly over top, spreading with a spatula or spoon. Place back in the fridge for about 30 minutes. When ready to eat, either cut the squares in the pan, or gently lift the square out and place on a cutting board to cut. It helps if the bars somewhat come to room temp before cutting, as they will slightly crumble a bit if they are  cold.

  1. Hi — browsing natural medicine websites, I came across several links to Hood To Coast Healthcare – and thought you’d like to know that one of your pages comes up with a POP-UP on top of it, ‘subscribe to our newsletter’, that stays a long time, has no X option to get rid of it, and shows a timer counting down the 110+ seconds till it will go away. I gave up and clicked away from the page. You might like to check for yourself all the ways people find your website (Google yourselves!) and be sure they’re what you want them to be. I followed two Google hits to Hood To Coast Healthcare, and they both brought up RECIPES, which isn’t a very enlightening first impression (especially the choc-coco-oatmeal bars, with SUGAR in them). Wishing you success —

  2. Oh dear, I thought I was sending a private email. You may want to reconsider that, too.
