Chocolate Covered Coconut Almond Bites

If you grew up eating Bounty bars, you're in for a treat. While Bounty Bars weren't all too common in Canada (as far as I remember), any time we had a box of chocolate or pick of the checkout at the grocery store, coconut anything always found it's way into my belly. Bounty bars, for those of you who have not been blessed by their goodness, are super sweet coconut enrobed in chocolate and topped with an almond. It seems simple, but I'd put money on saying that they are far superior to the Mars bars of the world. Instead of my childhood uber sweet bar (that I know I would eat the entire thing at once), I've made a grown up, vegan bounty bar - my recipe for chocolate covered coconut almond bites.

This vegan bounty bar recipe is full of flavor, thanks for coconut, maple syrup and chopped almonds. It's the perfect level of sweetness (aka you don't feel sick after eating it), and makes for a pretty great snack or midday dessert. While the recipe makes 10... let's be real, that's a single serving...right?


The best part about these chocolate covered coconut almond bites it that they're perfect for storing in the freezer. I like to give it 10 minutes to thaw before chomping down, but I'm also into cutting it up and throwing it on top of my smoothie or porridge bowl... because YOLO, they're delicious.
