Easy No-Bake Coconut Bars  (Gluten free, dairy free)


Coconut Bars:

  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil, plus a bit more*
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp salt (we like either pink Himalayan or sea salt)

Chocolate Drizzle:

  • Bag of Enjoy Life chocolate chips
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil


Grease the bottom of an 8×8 dish with a bit of coconut oil*

Place all ingredients (except chocolate chips) in a food processor and pulse until combined.

Press into the prepared 8×8 dish, and put into the fridge while preparing the chocolate drizzle.

Place about 1/2 bag of Enjoy Life chocolate chips and 1 Tbsp of coconut oil into a microwave safe dish. Microwave on high for 30 seconds then stir. Continue to heat in 20-30 second increments, stirring each time, until melted.

Pull the coconut bars out of the fridge, and drizzle with the melted chocolate. Return to the fridge for about an hour before trying to cut into bars. Makes 6-8 bars.
