Coconut Rough, since I was a little kid, has always been one of my favourite treats. But its pretty hard to find a dairy and gluten free coconut rough these days! So naturally, I’ve gone and made my own.
I’ve made a few batches of this already and they do not last long at all… the 12 bars are gone within a couple of days! So beware: they are addictive!!
I love receiving hand made gifts, and I think this would be the perfect DIY Easter Gift with Easter being just around the corner! A few pieces of this wrapped in some cellophane – seriously, who wouldn’t want that!
This recipe is:
- Gluten Free
- Dairy Free
- Soy Free
Carob Coconut Rough
- 1/3 cup carob
- 1 cup desiccated coconut
- 2 tsp Tahini
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp almond butter
- Add all ingredients to a bowl and mix until combined.
- Transfer into a pan and press down with the back of a spoon, ensuring it is spread out evenly and roughly 2cm thick.
- Sprinkle with a little extra desiccated coconut and place in the freezer to set for 3 hours before cutting into bars.
