I’m a big fan of easy sugar free sweets, and this recipe ticks all my boxes. It does not require any baking, it comes together with only 5 ingredients and most importantly, it is intensely, supremely satisfying. Once you sink your teeth into a chewy coconut bar you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about!
Essentially, no bake coconut bars are just like a Bounty bar (I think there’s a version over in the US called Mound bar) – but without the fussy chocolate covering (and all the sugar).

Prep Time 10 minutes
cooling time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Calories 113 kcal
3 cups / 270g desiccated coconut unsweetened
1/3 cup / 80 ml coconut cream
1/2 cup / 120 ml sugar free syrup
4 tbsp coconut oil
1 oz / 30g dark or sugar free chocolate minimum 85% cocoa solids
Blend all ingredients in a high speed blender or with an electric mixer until and you have a moist, sticky mix. The coconut shreds should be MUCH smaller than they were before blending.
Line a 8x5 inch pan with parchment paper and fill in the coconut mix. Press down with your hands until it's nice and firm. Smooth the top with a spatula.
Place in the fridge for 15 minutes. Then remove and cut into pieces.
Heat the chocolate in the microwave (30 second bursts) or in a water bath (place the bowl with chocolate into a larger bowl half-filled with boiled water. The heat gently melts the chocolate).
Fill melted chocolate into a plastic bag and pierce a hole with a needle. Drizzle the coconut bars with the chocolate.
Return to the fridge for 10 minutes so the chocolate firms up.
