These coconut bars are the perfect combination of chocolate and coconut. I’ve been tinkering with a coconut bar recipe from Elana’s Pantry for the last few months. My husband and I both agreed that chocolate needed to find its way into the recipe somehow, and Elana’s bars came out a bit more custard-like than we wanted. This version is a delicious, healthy treat that tastes decadent.
Coconut Bars Price Breakdown
This recipe makes 16 bars (1 inch x 4 inch). It contains some pricier ingredients, including maple syrup ($2.56 per cup), gluten-free flour ($.75 per cup), and shredded coconut ($1.25 per cup). Making this with white sugar and some white flour would bring down the price, but also the quality. Even with these higher-end ingredients, the total cost of this recipe is $6.96, or $.44 per bar. When compared to a Larabar, with its shelf price of $1.25, these coconut bars are actually a bargain!
