Chocolate / Carob Base

Coconut Topping



  • Melt oil and nut / seed butter over low heat.
  • Stir in cocoa / carob (sifted if you like, but I have never bothered with this) and granulated sweetener and combine thoroughly.
  • Mix in remaining ingredients except for vanilla. Continuously stir until it slightly thickens, then remove from heat.
  • Stir in the vanilla.
  • Pour the mixture into an 8×8 pan and place in freezer to harden while you make the topping. If you don't have room in your freezer, the fridge will get it solid enough to work with.


  • Melt oil in small pan and add coconut flakes. Stir.
  • Add remaining ingredients. Simmer and stir until it thickens a bit.
  • Once the chocolate is hardened, gently smooth the coconut mixture on top.
  • Place slivered or whole almonds on top (optional). Place bars back in the freezer until hardened. Again, the fridge will work, but it will take longer.
  • Slice into squares of desired size and enjoy! They'll be too hard to cut right out of the freezer so let them thaw a bit first.
  • Store in the refrigerator or freezer.
