Coconut Bars in 5 minutes or less (Almost Raw, Vegan)

Chocolate Chip Coconut Bars

Chocolate Chip Coconut Bars

Light unsweetened coconut flakes were on sale a couple weeks ago at my local Sprouts Farmers Market and I thought, woohoo! and bought up 4 bags. But what to do with them… ?

I finally found a somewhat healthier coconut bar recipe on Chocolate Covered Katie’s blog, called what else but Coconut Crack Bars! The recipe can be found here. Only, I was also craving a little bit of chocolate, so I added in some chocolate chips. The best part about these bars is that they are only a little over 100 calories a serving if you add in the chocolate chips. I used these.

The best part, these take literally less than 5 minutes to make. Then you just let them set in your freezer and you’re done.

Use a small baking pan or plastic/glass container and press firmly. Mine were very gooey, so I couldn't use a spatula.
