Coconut “Mounds” Bark

There are literally hundreds of uses for coconut oil from beauty to health, to household uses and more. Not only that, but also coconut oil is highly nutritious and loaded with good saturated fats. I highly recommend this article so you can learn more in depth about its uses and benefits.

Coconut Oil: This Cooking Oil Is a Powerful Virus-Destroyer and Antibiotic

I am always trying to find ways to increase my daily consumption of coconut oil and this dessert makes this very easy and enjoyable to do. This recipe is so good and so simple to make that I am sure you will love it too. The taste reminds me of a Mounds candy bar, but way more delicious. The main ingredients are simply unrefined coconut oil and unsweetened shredded coconut and topped with a layer of dark chocolate. I find that some brands of coconut oil taste better than others and my personal preference is Spectrum Unrefined Coconut Oil due to its pure sweet taste.

    I used Fitday to calculate, except for the shredded coconut, since they did not have a good listing for unsweetened, shredded coconut. And I used a Lindt 85% dark chocolate bar, since it has minimal ingredients. So based on that:

    2757 calories
    285.7 g fat
    66 carbs
    8.5 g protein

    I was able to cut mine 5 x 5, so based on 25 pieces, I calculated for each piece:

    110.28 cal
    11.42 g fat
    2.64 carbs
    0.34 g protein

    Next time I will skip the chocolate. The coconut part is heavenly on its own! Thank you for posting this awesome treat!!

    Great tasting goodie! I had trouble when cutting: the chocolate did not adhere to the bottom in places. Any ideas on how to change that? Thank you!

      I am not really sure Judy. I didn’t have that problem. Did anybody else?
