“Come celebrate with us”, the fairies whisper. you’re not sure…
Guess what? Advent time is here! That’s my absolute favorite time of the year. Darker, colder, cozier. And, most important, magical. I meant to create an advent calendar, something self made that’s beautiful and makes you want to get up every day. But… i failed on finding things to fill it with. So i decided to skip this part this year. But that doesn’t mean i’m not planning on making advent time and christmas as magical and as possible!
So on to these coconut bars. Coconut is one of the things i use most when raw baking. In fact, when i make something new that’s sweet, most of the time i include one of these ingredients: coconut, cacao or cinnamon. LOVE.
The base of these bars is firm, just like any other raw cake, but because of the coconut flavor it tastes kinda like coconut cookie dough or something. Soo good. Next comes the filling which is creamy; slightly different than in the picture because i first made it with less coconut milk and too much coconut flour. But promise, if you follow the recipe, yours will be creamy and uber delicious. And on top of all, finally: Some kind of almond crumble, similar to rawnola. (Which also includes coconut, but you can leave it out if you think it’s gonna get to much) Honestly, i don’t know which part of these bars (okay, they’re more like cake) i’m more excited about.
You’ll get to the recipe if you scroll down the pictures 🙂
