Homemade chocolate “bars”

I had yet another craving for sweets last night. So, I thought: “How can I make something yummy, healthy, and that will satisfy my craving?” Aha! This hit the spot.


  • 1 cup coconut oil
  • – 3 tbsp unsweetened raw organic cacao
  • – about 6 tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut
  • – sliced almonds
  • – OPTIONAL: sweetener like coconut sugar maple syrup, liquid stevia, or honey
  • – cookie sheet
  • – parchment paper
  • – freezer


  • Put parchment paper on top of cookie sheet to cover surface.
  • – Melt the coconut oil in a bowl.
  • – Mix in cacao and coconut.
  • – At this point, add sweetener of choice (just a little at a time, try it to make sure it’s not too sweet). I skipped this point, but recognize that it could’ve used a little something sweet. The raw cacao isn’t sweet.
  • – Pour the mix over parchment paper Swish it around slowly until it’s a thin layer.
  • – Sprinkle sliced almonds all over top.
  • – Put cookie sheet in freezer for 30 minutes.
  • – Get it out and it should be solid by now.
  • – Crack the chocolate into smaller, bite-size pieces.
  • – Keep in an air-tight container in the freezer.
  • – Enjoy. 😀
