Almond Joy Bars
Yields: 16 bars
- 1 1/2 cups unsweetened coconut flakes
- 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
- 1/4 cup coconut butter
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 15-20 almonds
- 1 cup Enjoy Life chocolate chips (or dark chocolate chips)
Add all ingredients besides chocolate chips and almonds to a food processor and pulse until well combined (this should be able to be pressed into the bottom of a pan like a crust, so be sure not to process too long!)
Press mixture evenly into the bottom of a 9x4 inch bread pan (or something similar).
Press almonds individually into the top of coconut layer, spacing them out throughout the pan.
Melt chocolate chips (in microwave or in double boiler on stove).
Pour chocolate evenly over bottom layer.
Place bars into the freezer until chocolate hardens completely (about 30-45 minutes).
Let bars thaw for a few minutes at room temperature, then cut into small pieces (I got about 16).
