Raw Vegan 3-Layer Bars


Here’s another delicious and easy-to-make summer dessert recipe that’s vegan-friendly and requires no cooking. There’s something for everyone: coconut, chocolate and nuts – all my favorite things.

Ingredients

For the dark layer
1/2 cup of desiccated coconut, nuts or seeds of your choice
2 tablespoon of coconut oil
2 tablespoons of maple syrup or another sweetener of your choice
2 tablespoons of cocoa powder

For the white layer
1/2 cup of desiccated coconut
2 tablespoons of coconut cream from a refrigerated can of coconut milk
1 tablespoon of coconut oil
2 tablespoons of maple syrup or another sweetener of your choice

For the chocolate layer
1/3 cup of dark chocolate
1 tablespoon of nut butter – optional
Crushed nuts for decoration – optional

Instructions

For the dark layer
Melt the coconut oil, if you need to, and mix it with the maple syrup and cocoa powder. Then, add the desiccated coconut and/or some ground nuts and seeds. Mix everything well and transfer the mixture into a small tray or container, and press it down. I decided to use an ice cube mold because it’s easier to shape the bars.
Put it in the freezer until you make the next layer.

For the white layer
Mix the coconut oil with coconut cream and maple syrup. Then add the desiccated coconut and mix everything together. Press down this mixture over the dark layer and put the mold back in the freezer.

For the chocolate layer
Melt the chocolate and mix it with the nut butter. Pour it over the white layer, decorate with chopped nuts and keep the bars in the fridge until everything is set.
Enjoy! 🙂
