I’ve been craving a bounty bar all week, but as we all know, they aren’t that healthy for us. I always feel bounty bars are a waste of calories too because they are always so bland and dont even remotely taste like coconut in my opinion – plus they’re not vegan!
So, I made some myself and boy were they good.
The bounty bars were a bit fiddly to mould, but after freezing the coconut filling for a few minutes it became more manageable to sculpt the bars into a shape that was reminiscent of a bounty bar.
- 1 Cup Dessicated Coconut
- 1/2 Cup Coconut Flour
- 4 Tbsp Maple Syrup
- 3 Tbsp Coconut Oil
- 1.5 tsp Coconut Extract
- 50ml Coconut Milk ( I used Koko Dairy)
- 100g Vegan Dark Chocolate
This next part is as easy as throwing all of the ingredients into a bowl or food processor and combining them thoroughly.
Place the filling into the freezer for 5 minutes and then remove and form into small bars.
Now, place the bounty bars back in to the freezer for a further 5 minutes to harden up.
Next, chop up the dark chocolate and add half of it to a microwaveable bowl; cook for 30 seconds in the microwave, remove, stir and add it back to the microwave for a further 30 minutes. Continue this method until all of the chocolate has melted, before adding in the other half of dark chocolate (do not reheat) and stir until all of the room temp chocolate has melted into the hot chocolate – this is called seeding.
Remove your bounty bars from the freezer and coat evenly in the dark chocolate before popping them back into the freezer for 10 minutes to set.
NB: This recipe makes around 10 small bounty bars. Although, you may need more chocolate to coat them all. They will also store in the fridge or freezer well and won’t turn hard. Also, if you find the filling too difficult to manage, then you can add more coconut oil, but I personally, was trying not to add unnecessary fat to them.
