Easy To Make Coconut And Chocolate Dessert At Home
A bounty bar is a chocolate bar that contains a soft, sweet coconut filling, covered in chocolate. And they are absolutely yummy! Mounds bar is another name for this coconut chocolate bar.
When I think of a bounty bar, I think of the supermarkets in Australia where they sold these “toxic” (they are for me!) bounty bars full of numbers. For this recipe, I used only real ingredients, as close to nature intended it to be with low human interference where our bodies know exactly what to do with these ingredients – almond flour, coconut, coconut oil, coconut cream, maple syrup, and vanilla. Plant-based, refined sugar-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, and they are incredible!
A Blue Bounty? Why not!
My friend Kittea introduced me to butterfly pea flower powder. She’s an alchemist, libationist, purveyor of fine cocktails, and the creatrix of exceptional elixirs. Simply put, she’s an epicurean genius, and I’m so glad she’s in my life.
The butterfly pea flower is well-known for its brilliant blue hue, hence, it’s used as a natural dye and it is native to Asia. This was my first exploration into the majesty of natural blue colouring and as a result, these Blue Bounties stand out on any plate or dish. Oh, and they taste magnificent.
