Servings: 10 large bars
Preparation Time: 20 minutes
1 ½ cup of dark chocolate pieces (unsweetened)
1 tablespoon coconut oil
In a food processor, put the filling ingredients and blend 1-2 minutes until smooth. Taste for sweetness and adjust stevia drops to your taste. The coconut oil must be soft or melted so the mixture blends.
Line an 8×8 or similar sized pan with wax paper or parchment. Pour the mixture in and spread around evenly. Spread almonds in coconut mixture. Press them in. Place pan in the fridge or freezer to speed the solidifying process.
Meanwhile, melt your chocolate and coconut oil. Pour the chocolate and coconut oil mixture on the top of the coconut and spread evenly. Then put the tray in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.
Once done, cut into pieces and EAT!
