Healthy Candy Bars That Can Burn Fat

Chocolate dessert

Servings: 10 large bars

Preparation Time: 20 minutes

4 cups grated, dried unsweetened coconut

½ cup softened or melted coconut oil

10 drops of clear stevia liquid

Slivered almonds (optional)


1 ½ cup of dark chocolate pieces (unsweetened)

1 tablespoon coconut oil


Coconut ingredients for dessert

In a food processor, put the filling ingredients and blend 1-2 minutes until smooth. Taste for sweetness and adjust stevia drops to your taste. It is necessary that the coconut oil be soft or melted so the mixture would blend.


Line an 8x8 or similar-sized pan with wax paper or parchment. Pour the mixture in and spread around evenly. Spread almonds in coconut mixture. Press them in. Place pan in the fridge or freezer to speed the solidifying process.


Meanwhile, melt your chocolate with the coconut oil. Pour the chocolate on the top of the coconut and spread evenly. Then put the tray in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.

Melted chocolate

Once done, cut into pieces, and EAT!
