What exactly makes these healthy?! The coconut oil! I am using Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil from Vitacost. You can use any brand. I have some posts coming in the near future about what I use coconut oil from, but you really should google all of the health benefits. This stuff is amazing!

Anyway, back to chocolate. You are going to melt 1 cup of coconut oil, it only take a couple seconds in the microwave.

Mix it with 2 cups of unsweetened coconut and 1/4 cup of honey. See…no sugar!

Once it is mixed press the coconut mixture into an 8×8 pan lined with parchment paper. Pop it into the freezer to set up. At this point I walked away to pick the kids up from school. You want to leave it in the freezer just long enough to firm up.

Now time for my favorite chocolate! Enjoy Life makes a delicious dairy free chocolate chip! Making them amazing for this Chocolate Coconut Bars recipe! Just melt them until smooth, and pour over the coconut base spreading it out evenly.

I sprinkled a little extra coconut on the top too. 😉 I then popped the whole pan in the fridge for the chocolate to set up. When ready to serve just cut into 1 inch squares.
