BOUNTY SLICE WITH BROWNIE BASE (7 INGREDIENTS)
Hey guys 😀
I am sure you all used to love bounty bars when you were kids and maybe you still do. Bounty bars were for sure one of my favourite treats before I went vegan — I have always been fond of anything with coconut and chocolate. Therefore, I am very excited to share this recipe with you today because it was a huge success at home.
Okay, I hope you are ready for this healthy, gluten-free, refined sugar-free, no-bake, vegan Bounty Slice with Brownie Base recipe.
THE MOST DELICIOUS HEALTHY TREAT
As always, I try to make dessert recipes that are as healthy as possible and free from gluten, oil and refined sugar. These bounty bars are quite sweet even though they don’t contain any added sugar. I did use one tablespoon of coconut oil, but I am sure you could easily skip it.
For the brownie base I used soft Medjool dates, almond flour and cacao powder. Here is a tip for you: almond flour is a lot more expensive than almonds, so I highly recommend that you make your own.
I personally use the Tribest Personal Blender which works amazing and turns almonds into flour in just a few seconds.
For the coconut layer I used unsweetened coconut flakes, coconut cream and coconut oil. As I mentioned above, I am sure you could easily substitute the coconut oil with one tablespoon of coconut cream to make an oil-free version of these bars.
Finally, for the chocolate layer I simply used dark chocolate and coconut cream. This resulted in a very creamy and quite sweet chocolate layer that goes really well with the coconut.
EXTREMELY ADDICTIVE BOUNTY BARS
I must warn you though, these bars are extremely addictive. I always make sure to eat before I take pictures of desserts, but this time I couldn’t resist. While I was taking pictures for this blog post, I first cut a small piece to eat and ended up eating two whole bars.
Yes, two whole bars. That’s how good they are 😉
