When we saw this recipe by Nadia from Nadiashealthykitchen our hearts missed a beat. We must admit Bounty bars are our weak spot and now these are quilt free!
"The original bounty offers nothing in terms of nutrition. My version is higher in fibre and minerals like copper, iron, magnesium, zinc and manganese. And even though I used maple syrup to sweeten they’re still lower in sugar compared to the real thing.
To make them even healthier, I added in some Arctic Power Berries Blueberry powder to pack in some antioxidants and vitamins. " Nadia
1 cup (235ml) light coconut milk
5 tbsp maple syrup
4 tbsp coconut butter or creamed coconut
Pinch of salt
2 cups (110g) desiccated coconut
200g dark chocolate, melted
Pour the milk into a saucepan along with the coconut butter, maple syrup and salt. Heat on low until everything is combined.
Take off the heat and fold in the desiccated coconut and blueberry powder.
Press down into a loaf tin covered with parchment paper. Freeze for 2-3 hours.
Slice into 12 bars and coat with the melted chocolate. Freeze again for 30 minutes to allow the chocolate to set.
