I’ve been doing a lot of do it yourself cooking projects lately. I’m compiling all of them into a book which I hope to release soon. I’m always astounded at the things we buy, which could easily be made at home, without the added sugars and preservatives, so writing this book is a product of that fascination. This particular recipe is a combination of several of my diy projects, which I’ll be sharing with you all soon. Until then, you can easily buy the ingredients and make these bars in less than 20 minutes.
1.5 cups of organic sweetened shredded coconut flakes
1.5 cups of condensed milk
1/4 cup of maple sugar or sweetener of your choice
3 cups of finely ground Graham crackers
1.5 sticks of butter melted
8 oz of semi-sweet dark chocolate chopped
Directions: Pre heat the oven to 375F. Add graham crackers, melted butter and sugar to a bowl and mix until the mixture comes together. Line a 8 x 9 inch baking dish with parchment paper and pour the graham mixture out onto it. Press the mixture evenly into the pan and bake until brown about 7-10 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 10-15 minutes. Once cooled pour the condensed milk evenly over the top of the graham cracker crust, then sprinkle the chocolate, and lastly top with the coconut. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes or until the coconut browns, remove let cool and enjoy! These are so delicious that they probably won’t last long. This recipe makes 12 bars.
