Chocolate Coconut Bars

These chocolate coconut bars are similar to a coconut macaroon, except this batter has extra egg whites that result in a more cake-like texture. They are also topped with a yummy chocolate icing. The recipe is easy to make and budget friendly.

Ingredients

Icing

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Line a 4 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ (a.k.a. a loaf pan) baking dish with parchment paper.
  3. In a bowl, using a mixing machine, whip the egg whites to soft peaks.
  4. Add honey and vanilla and continue whipping until stiff peaks form.
  5. Add cocoa powder and salt and mix until incorporated.
  6. Fold in the shredded coconut. Spread the mixture in the baking dish.
  7. Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick can be inserted in the middle and comes out without any batter.
  8. Allow the bars to cool before spreading with icing.

Icing

  1. Place the chocolate chips and coconut oil in a small pot on low heat. Stir continuously until the chocolate chips have melted.
  2. Spread over the cooled bars. Place the bars in the fridge to firm.
  3. Cut into 8 squares. The bars are slightly delicate so be careful cutting them. Store the bars in the fridge.
