These easy-to-make bars are wonderful to have on hand in the freezer for a delicious and satisfying sweet treat!


  • 1 cup packed, soft pitted dates (250 g)
  • 2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut (165 g)
  • 1 tbsp melted coconut oil (15 g)
  • 3/4 cup dairy-free chocolate chips


  1. Add the dates, shredded coconut and coconut oil to a food processor and mix until it forms a crumbly dough.
  2. Line a 7-inch square baking pan with 2 strips of parchment paper or saran wrap then firmly press the dough into the pan. Place the pan in the freezer.
  3. Melt the chocolate chips using a double boiler, a glass bowl placed over a pot of boiling water on the stove or carefully in the microwave, then evenly spread the melted chocolate over the coconut base.
  4. Place the pan back in the freezer and allow to set for 30-minutes.
  5. Remove from the freezer and slice into 16 bars. Store in the fridge for up to 10 days or freezer for up to 3 months.
