On Friday when I got home from work, I was ravenous as per usual. I started out making a little snack and eventually it morphed into these delicious raw coconut bars with chocolate ganache. Coconut + chocolate = a match made in heaven! Don’t you agree? Not to mention you only need a few ingredients to make these bad boys. You just have to have a little patience while they set in the freezer but if you whip them up pre-dinner they’re be ready to eat by the time you’re done your meal!
