Vegan Bounty bar recipe

Before going vegan, my greatest vice was chocolate bars. I couldn’t image life without the likes of Snickers, Mars bars or Bounty bars. I’m not exaggerating when I say there was a point in my life where I ate an average of 4 full-sized chocolate bars a day!

A few years before I went fully vegan, I tried out the infamous “dairy free” diet. I missed sweets terribly at first but I soon learned that there are alternatives to everything, including chocolate. And while I couldn’t go to any old store and pick up a dairy free chocolate bar at that time, I could certainly try to make my own. Since Bountys were my always favourite, I decided to start with those.  And it turns out it was way easier than anticipated!

I whacked together a few ingredients that I had in my cupboard at the time, hoping the result would be tasty and somewhat resemble my beloved Bounty:

  • Desiccated coconut
  • Coconut oil
  • Coconut milk (the light kind that you drink and put on cereal)
  • Agave nectar
  • Vanilla
  • Dark chocolate

Luckily, the dairy free Bounty bar recipe was a success. And although I didn’t realise it at the time, they were totally vegan friendly! The only problem I had was that the bars stuck to my pan after freezing so be sure to line yours with baking paper or use a silicone pan.

So whether you’re dairy-free, vegan, on a low-carb diet or just simply chocolate mad, these Bounty bars are for you! They’re filled with healthy fats which makes them a great brain food, and they’re WAY lower in sugar than the classic Bounty. PLUS there’s absolutely no baking required. It’s a win-win!
