Ingredients

  • 2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/3 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 oz cocoa butter
  • 1 tsp maple extract
  • 1/3 cup sweetener I use either Swerve Confectioner's or Brown Swerve

Instructions

  • Line a loaf pan with parchment paper.
  • Take a large bowl and mix together the shredded coconut, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.
  • Put water in a small saucepan with a heat-proof bowl sitting on top of it (or use a double-boiler). Turn the heat to medium-high, chop the cocoa butter, and put it in the bowl to melt.
  • Add the sweetener and whisk until the cocoa butter is completely melted then remove from heat. Continue to whisk and add in the maple extract.
  • Pour cocoa butter mixture into the large bowl of shredded coconut, etc. Mix it together vigorously with a wooden spoon until the coconut mixture is completely coated with the cocoa butter.
  • Transfer to the loaf pan and press it down evenly using the parchment paper. 
  • Bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees or until the coconut begins to toast and appear brown on the edges. Chill in the refrigerator completely and then cut into 8 bars. Keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week or in the freezer for up to a month.

Notes

*If you don't have cocoa butter you can use 6 tablespoons of melted butter instead.
