Directions

To make these delicious Healthy Bounty Bars, start with the coconut filling. Place the coconut milk, rice malt syrup and Niugini Organics coconut oil in a medium sized saucepan. Over a low heat, stir the ingredients together until combined. Mix through desiccated coconut.2. Line a slice tray or container with baking paper. Press the coconut mixture into the pan so that it is about 1.5cm thick. Refrigerate until coconut filling has set.3. Once completely set, cut the coconut filling into bars. Cool in the freezer until very cold (this will make the chocolate coating step easier).4. For the chocolate: place all ingredients in a double boiler, stirring until smooth/combined. Allow to cool slightly.5. Coat the coconut bars with the first layer of chocolate. Place on a tray lined with baking paper and refrigerate until set. When completely set, coat the bars with a second layer of chocolate. Allow to cool in the fridge for 5-10 minutes before serving.
