Almond Joy Bar for the Birthday Girl!

IMG_6346

HAPPY 1st BIRTHDAY to a lil joy in my life, Julia! In honor of the birthday gal I decided to make an almond joy bar ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. In a blender add 1C unsweetened shredded coconut – blend until it resembles flour, remove & set aside
  2. In the same blender add 2C unsweetened shredded coconut & blend on high speed till it resembles butter (sort of). This sounds weird and I was skeptical, but it really does turn into a sticky, buttery consistency!
  3. Once you have ‘butter’ consistency add 1/2C coconut nectar, 1/2t salt, 1T vanilla, 4T almond butter & 6T water to the blender
  4. Process til smooth & then add coconut flour from step #1 – blend
  5. Pour mixture into bowl & add: 1C chopped dark chocolate, 1C chopped raw almonds & 1/2C unsweetened shredded coconut – mix with hands
  6. Spread out on parchment lined pan into a rectangle 1/2inch thick
  7. Stick in fridge til firm (about an hour)

Cut these babies up & serve! If you are making & want to store stick in tupperware, layer with parchment paper & pop in freezer.
