These raw chocolate covered coconut bars are really easy to make - and delicious and healthy too! I adapted a recipe from Health Yeah.

2 cups desiccated coconut
1 cup of coconut cream or milk
3 Tbs coconut oil or coconut butter
4 Tbs natural sweetener (maple syrup, coconut syrup, rice syrup or date paste)
pinch sea salt

For the chocolate coating:
5 Tbsp of  organic coconut oil
3 Tbsp of raw cacao powder
2 tsp of coconut syrup or maple syrup

Mix all the ingreds except dessicated coconut in a saucepan over low heat until everything is melted. Take off the heat and mix in coconut. Spoon this mixture into a container lined with baking paper and press firmly down.
Cool it right down in the fridge, until it becomes firm. When set, cut into bars and then place in the freezer to completely harden. This will make them more manageable when you coat them with chocolate.
In a double boiler melt the chocolate coating ingredients in a small bowl or pan. Coat each bar with chocolate and leave to set on baking paper.
Store in the fridge.
