Chocolate Coconut Chia Bars

I found this recipe online when I was doing a search for recipes using chia seeds.  I unfortunately don’t remember what site I found this on – it was from a company that sold them, and the recipe was sent to them by a customer.  I slightly adapted it; it’s an easy recipe filled with healthy and tasty ingredients.

Chocolate Coconut Chia Bars

  • 1/2 c. coconut oil, melted
  • 1/3 c. cocoa
  • 1/2 c. xylitol or 1/4 c. honey
  • 1/3 c. coconut milk
  • 2 tsp. chia seeds
  • 1 1/2 c. dried coconut flakes
  • 1/4 c. sliced almonds
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla

Combine all the ingredients, stirring until everything is mixed well.  Spread the mixture on a baking pan in a thin layer, and put in the freezer or refrigerator to set.  Cut into small squares to serve.

As requested, details to come about chia seeds in a separate post. :)

  1. Can you also discuss xylitol? I’ve never used it as a sweetener and am curious about its health properties/benefits. Thanks!
