Coconut/Chocolate Bar

Dayamata Shakti Prem made some delicious coconut snacks the other day, we sent it out as a 'message of the day' and it was so popular that we thought we would share it with everyone.  I asked her for the recipe to share with you.

Raw Almond/coconut/chocolate bars.

1 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
2 tbsp coconut oil
3 tbsp  maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla 
blend everything in a food processor shape into 12 squares refrigerate for 40 minutes

chocolate dipping sauce
1/3 cup cacoa butter
1/2 cup cacoa powder
2 tbsp maple syrup 
dash of salt
melt cacoa butter in a double broiler
whisk in remainder of ingredients

One can place a small amount of chocolate on a baking sheet, then place the coconut square onto the chocolate, then drizzle the chocolate over the top of the coconut or one can dip the coconut squares into chocolate.  If you wish you can place an almond atop the square as well.

Ayurveda: This can be aggravating to Vata dosha as coconut is cooling and chocolate has a bitter quality.  So caution is advised in the fall/winter or if one has high vata.  This should be cooling for Pitta.
