Sugar-Free Coconut Carob Bars
Health Rating
Easy-to-make, 6-ingredient coconut carob bars made without sugar or sweetener! A nutrient-rich, high-fat low-sugar treat with rich chocolate flavor.

Ingredients


1/2 cup Coconut butter (144 g); (or store-bought // warmed to liquid texture in oven; stovetop; microwave))
3 tbsp Coconut oil ((45 ml); melted)
4 tbsp Carob powder (Tbsp (24 g) toasted)
1 1/2 tbsp Maca powder ((22 g) maca powder (adds adaptogenic benefits and caramel flavor!))
1 tbsp Coconut flour (9-18 g); (for thickening //; sub almond; ))
1 pinch Sea salt
1/2 tsp Vanilla extract, pure (tsp)
1 packette Stevia sweetener, powder (OPTIONAL)

Instructions


  1. Add all ingredients to a food processor and blend to combine until completely smooth, scraping down sides as needed.
  2. Taste and adjust flavor as needed, adding more carob powder for "chocolate" flavor or sweetness, maca powder for caramel flavor, salt for saltiness, vanilla for vanilla flavor, or coconut butter for creaminess. If it appears too liquidy, add the remaining 1 Tbsp (9 g) coconut flour. You're looking for a pourable liquid, but not too watery.
  3. Pour into cupcake liner molds, a lined loaf pan, or silicone chocolate molds like these or these, and let cool until firm. Depending on the temperature of your home, they may solidify at room temperature. If not, carefully transfer to the refrigerator until firm. Then remove from molds and enjoy. Because coconut butter chilled has some texture, don't be worried if the tops of your bars have a bit of ridging to them - that's totally normal!
  4. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks or in the freezer for 1 month or longer. Let thaw slightly before enjoying for best texture.
