And it's 100% vegan with agave nectar instead of honey! It's also a gluten-free option for your sweet tooth. 


Coconut Filling Ingredients: 

- 2 1/2 cups unsweetened coconut shredded 
- 1/2 cup melted coconut oil 
- 1/4 cup agave nectar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract 

Chocolate Topping Ingredients: 

- 8 ounces unsweetened dark chocolate (100% pure cacao) 
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil 
- 1/4 cup agave nectar

Add additional shredded coconut on top if desired!


In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the recipe's coconut filling ingredients and mix together until well combined. Evenly divide up the filling between the 12 muffin cups, pressing it in very tightly, making sure it is even. Don’t worry they won’t stick. Place the muffin pan in the freezer make sure it is sitting flat, and freeze until hard, about 30 minutes. 

While the coconut filling is cooling, melt the dark chocolate with the coconut oil. In a double boiler setup on the stove top or in small increments in the microwave. After the chocolate and coconut oil is melted and whisked together and well combined, remove from the heat, and add in the agave nectar. Stir well to combine. Take the muffin tin with the frozen coconut mixture out of the freezer, and divide your chocolate mixture over it, spooning it on top and smoothing the chocolate out to make sure it totally covers the coconut. Put the muffin tin back into the freezer, and freeze until the chocolate has set, about another 30 minutes. Enjoy this fantastic frugal feast as you quash your chocolate cravings and keep your midsection lean!

I hope you enjoyed this free healthy recipe for dark chocolate coconut bars on a lean budget.
