Healthy Coconut Bars

Do you sometimes get huge cravings for food you normally don’t fancy that much? For the past couple of weeks I’ve been having a “chip-craving-period”. It’s a little odd since I normally don’t crave for chips and only eat them on rare occasions. I think it was the new Ten Acres chips that started it all – they’re just so tasty!! I can’t believe the “when the cheese met the onion” flavor is vegan! 😀

Today however, my chip craving seems to have been satisfied (for now), and instead I really longed for a few coconut bars – you know, the Bounty bar style with thick coconut base covered in chocolate.

Well, these tasty coconut bars I made today have the same flavour but are FAR healthier, and super easy to make! 😀
