These little bites of deliciousness are so quick & easy to make, with no baking required. They contain desiccated coconut and coconut oil along with a contrasting dark chocolate topping, which go together like a dream!


No-bake Chocolate Coconut Bites (Vegan & GF)

  • 185g unsweetened desiccated coconut
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup coconut oil, melted
  • Pinch of salt
  • 180g dairy-free dark chocolate

How to make No-bake Chocolate Coconut Bites (Vegan & GF)

1. Line a square baking tray with grease-proof paper.

2. Place the desiccated coconut, maple syrup, vanilla extract, melted coconut oil and salt into a large mixing bowl, and using a wooden spoon, mix until fully combined.

3. Pour the coconut base mixture into the lined baking tray and press down until it is compact. Pop the tray into the freezer whilst you make the chocolate topping.

4. Create a bain-marie, and melt the chocolate until silky smooth!

5. Carefully pour the chocolate over the coconut base. Using a spatula, smooth the chocolate over the base and sprinkle some coconut over the top for decoration & texture! Pop the tray back into the freezer for approximately 1 hour to set.

6. Once set, remove the tray from the freezer and slice into your desired squares/bars. Serve & enjoy!

I served my bars with an extra sprinkle of desiccated coconut and some coconut chunks.

Store in a sealed container in the freezer and allow to rest at room temperature for 5 minutes minutes before enjoying!

I hope you give these delicious no-bake chocolate coconut bites a try! And if you do, be sure to tag the picture #AVogelRecipes on Pinterest so we can see :)
