Vegan Chocolate Coconut Nut Bars
Graham Cracker Crust
- 6 cups of crusted graham crackers
- 4 tablespoons of oil
- 1/8 teaspoon of salt
- 1 cup of shredded sweetened coconut
- 1 cup of chopped nuts
- 1/2 cup of vegan chocolate chips
- 1 cup of non-dairy milk (I used coconut)
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 1/2 cup of maple syrup
On medium heat, mix together the milk with the sugar and syrup. After all is combined, let the mixture set for about five minutes until slightly cooler. While cooling, mix the graham cracker crumbs, oil, and salt together in a medium bowl. Press the crust mixture into a medium sized cake pan, that is sprayed with cooking oil. Add the cooled milk mixture to the crust, then add the chocolate chips, coconut, and nuts. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes and let cool for two hours in the fridge before eating.
This is a recipe I have tried many different ways, and seen many different places. I love the mixture of coconut and chocolate as many people adore as well, and I can't get enough of it. The best thing about these bars is how simple they are to make, the most of the waiting is just the baking in the oven part. Also, most of these ingredients can always been found in your kitchen (well, at least in mine at all times!). Enjoy!
