These bars are deliciously decadent and actually good for you!

(Makes 10 servings)

Ingredients

For the Sunbutter Dough

  • 1 1/2 Cups sunbutter (sunflower seed butter)
  • 1/3 Cup coconut flour
  • 1 Cup blanched almond flour
  • 1/2 Cup coconut sugar (may use stevia or xylitol for diabetics)
  • 1/2 Tsp pink Himalayan salt
  • 1/2 Tsp organic cinnamon
  • 1 Tsp vanilla
  • 1-3 Tbsp light coconut cream

For the Chocolate

  • 1-2 Cups 70% chocolate chunks
  • 1/2 Cup light coconut cream
  • 2 Tbsp raw cacao nibs (optional)

Instructions

For the Sunbutter Dough

  • Stir together all of the ingredients for the dough, except for the coconut cream. It should be fairly crumbly.
  • Add the coconut cream, one tablespoon at a time, until the dough comes together to form a ball.
  • Press the dough into a parchment lined 8×8 glass baking dish and set aside.

For the chocolate topping

Melt together the chocolate and coconut cream in a double boiler. To make a double boiler, simply place a large bowl on top of a medium pot, that has a little water in the bottom of it. Place it over low heat, and stir until the chocolate melts.  Pour melted chocolate over the dough mixture and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Ingredients

  • 8 oz Dark Chocolate, melted
  • 2 cups Unsweetened Coconut
  • 2 cups coconut butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup Slivered Almonds
  • 2 tsp Vanilla
  • 2/3 cup honey

Instructions

  • Melt the dark chocolate according to the package, until smooth. Spread the chocolate into a silicone candy mold (Spring Bark Mold is recommended) with a spatula until it fills each section.
  • Melt the coconut butter over low heat, in a small saucepan before mixing in the coconut flakes, slivered almonds, honey, and vanilla.
  • When everything is melted and mixed thoroughly, layer coconut butter mixture on top of the chocolate layer and put the mold in the freezer to harden.
  • You can use a giant knife to pull the squares out. I recommend cutting one side of each square at a time so you don’t crack the square.
