5 Ingredient Coconut Bars

Hello Beans

I made this recipe on a bit of a whim. I wanted a chocolate fix and was specifically craving a bounty bar but a healthier version. Also, the bounty bars aren’t vegan 🙂 so an hour in the kitchen playing around with ingredients and I came up with these.


Only 5 ingredients, super simple to make and certainly curb a chocolate or coconut craving.


220g Desiccated coconut
400ml Light Coconut Milk
2 tsp Agave Syrup
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
50g Dark Chocolate

Method (makes 10-20)

Ok, I wasn’t sure whether to bother putting a method in for this recipe because it’s so simple to do. However, it makes it easier to have a section 🙂

  1. So, all you need to do is combine the coconut milk, desiccated coconut, Agave syrup or other syrup of your choice and vanilla extract in a bowl. Give it all a good mix together.
  2. Then using a mould of your choice pat down the mixture into shapes. I used the smallest sized cookie cutter I had which made 15 chunky bars. You could use anything you like to do this, cookie cutters, ice cube tray, chocolate moulds.
  3. Freeze your bars for an hour.
  4. Then, melt your chocolate either on the hob or in the microwave a30-second inervals.
  5. Drizzle the chocolate over the top of the bites.

5 step method for a 5 ingrediant recipe. Super duper simple and these are very yummy. 



These keep in the fridge for a week or you can freeze them for a month and take each one out to defrost as required.

Enjoy Beans!
