Chocolate coating:


  • In a medium bowl, mix together the shredded coconut, coconut oil, maple syrup, salt, and coconut flour. You may need to use your hands to knead the mixture together until well blended. 
  • Using your hands, press the mixture firmly together into small rectangle bar shapes. Or you can shape these into balls if you like.  
  • If you are making Almond Joy, press an almond into the top of each ball. Chill these until set firm. If you are making Mounds minis, skip the almond on top
  • Place your mini bars into the fridge and chill for a bit to set up more until firm, at least 15 minutes.
  • Melt the allergy friendly chocolate and palm oil in the microwave 30 seconds at a time, or over a double boiler until melted, stirring occasionally. Dip the mini coconut bars into the chocolate. 
  • Allow the chocolate to set completely either at room temperature or in the fridge. Store in an airtight container.
  • Enjoy!
