Raw vegan coconut snack bars - dairy and gluten free (tastes like white chocolate)

Recently I have been overdoing it on the refined sugar, but I find the trouble is once you get into the habit of eating sugar every day, it quickly spirals. I’m trying to break my sugar habit and at the weekend, did a spot of no-bake baking, trying out some sweet treats that use natural sugar and none of the white refined crap.

One of the recipes I created was these delicious coconut bars, which taste like white chocolate and coconut. They’re so delicious, totally morish!

coconutty and delish 

They are so easy to make too, they only take about 5 minutes to make. Here’s how...

2/3 cup Brazil nuts
½ cup desiccated coconut
12 pitted dates
2 tablespoons of natural cashew butter
1 teaspoon of coconut oil, melted
Scoop of vanilla protein powder
Drizzle of agave nectar (optional)

big fan of this nut butter at the moment 

In a food processor, simply blend all the  ingredients together, except the agave nectar and coconut oil, until the nuts are chopped finely

Brazil nuts are filling and healthy 

Then add the agave nectar and coconut oil and blend until it’s stuck together

Pour the mixture into a tray. I brushed a little of the coconut oil onto the tray to stop the mixture from sticking

looks a little like breadcrumbs but tastes better than that

 Simply pop in the fridge to set, 
then you can cut it up into slices

cut up in to slices....

... and enjoy 

If you’re looking for a treat to satisfy your sweet tooth without ruining your healthy eating intentions, you have to make this recipe. It’s so tasty! It is easy to make too - easier to make than getting Miley Cyrus to take her clothes off!
