Chocolate Coconut Butter Bars

Free Essential Oil E-Course

These little bars of joy are made with coconut butter, raw honey, vanilla extract and soy free chocolate chips. That’s it! They’re so easy to make, it’s dangerous! You may need to keep these ingredients out of your home just so you’re not tempted to make them daily. You are warned. 😉

Chocolate Coconut Butter Bars

Before we get to the recipe I want to let you know I used store-bought coconut butter. I do make my own coconut butter on occasions, but sometimes the store-bought is just better to use (It’s not as gritty). That said, I’m sure homemade coconut butter will work just fine in this recipe. I also used soy free chocolate chips, but I know my homemade chocolate chips will work too! Now to the recipes…

Chocolate Coconut Butter Bars

Ingredients

Directions

1) Pour melted chocolate chips over a greased 5×7 bread pan.

2) Spread chocolate evenly over the bottom of the greased pan and place in the refrigerator for 5 minutes or until the chocolate is set.

3) Melt coconut butter in a small sauce pan over low heat. Add vanilla and sweeten to taste. I added about 3 tablespoons of honey to this batch.

4) Pour coconut butter mixture over cooled chocolate layer.

5) Refrigerate the bars for 1 hour or until the coconut butter layer is solid.

6) Bring bars to room temperature and cut into even squares (this is the easiest way to cut the bars).

7) Refrigerate the cut coconut butter bars.

8) Flip the bars out of the pan and serve.

9) Keep these babies stored in the refrigerator so the don’t melt on you!

10) Eat them up and enjoy!

      How long has it been heating? You may want to turn up the heat a bit. What brand of coconut butter are you using?

    OMG! That recipe sounds soooo yummy! What do you think to add some raw coconut nectar instead of honey or maple syrup? I llike coconut nectar because it’s low glycemic and it doesn’t give me the sugar rush .

    I too could not melt the coconut butter. It was Artisana organic coconut butter. Nevertheless, I’m sure they’ll be delicious. I simply pushed the coconut butter onto the chocolate and placed it in the frig. Can’t wait! Thank you for your website! I love it!

    This just doesn’t seem to work. I’ve tried doing this 3 times in a row and the coconut butter is not melting…?? Instead it forms into a ball and won’t get into a liquidity consistency. Kinda like mashed potatoes. Please help
    Note: first time I made this it was delicious!! Had to make it again not sure what’s going on this time around..feels like im just throwing money down the drain

    The chocolate coconut butter/manna bars: recipe says pour chocolate over the pan – is this a typo or do you flip the pan over and pour on the outside?? Sorry to be confused.

      I don’t see that in the recipe directions. Where did you read that? I’ll paste it below…

      Directions
      Pour melted chocolate chips over a greased 5×7 bread pan.
      Spread chocolate evenly over pan and place in the refrigerator for 5 minutes or until the chocolate is set.
      Melt coconut butter in a small sauce pan over low heat. Add vanilla and sweeten to taste. I added about 3 tablespoons of honey to this batch.
      Pour coconut butter mixture over cooled chocolate layer.
      Refrigerate the bars for 1 hour or until the coconut butter layer is solid.
      Bring bars to room temperature and cut into even squares (this is the easiest way to cut the bars).
      Refrigerate the cut coconut butter bars.
      Flip the bars out of the pan and serve.
      Keep these babies stored in the refrigerator so the don’t melt on you!

        Your very first line in your instructions says to Pour melted chocolate chips “over” a greased 5×7 bread pan. In think you mean “in”.

        It’s right there in the first line “Pour melted chocolate chips over a greased 5×7 bread pan.” that’s strange wording, usually means “turn the container upside down and pour melted substance over the upturned end”. You might want to fix that…

      I believe she means to ‘pour the chocolate in the pan’ (she uses “over the pan’ as a meaning to ‘pouring chocolate into pan and spreading across the inside of the pan,

    I thought of you when I read Coconut oil increases growth hormones. I am putting together a healthy diet plan for my co workers, and will be including lots of coconut oil. Thank you for writing your blog.

    Love your work! How come my coconut butter, chocolate bars are 3/4″ tall and yours look so much thicker. I bought commercial coconut butter which is not as white as your homemade!! As you had stated :-)
    Really, really appreciate your contributions to good health!!! Do we know the fat content of these coconut butter, chocolate bars?
