Description

Coconut Rough is really easy to whip up and is made with only four ingredients. Best of all, both my kids LOVE it!


Ingredients

  • 1 + 1/2 cups shredded organic coconut
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder
  • 2 – 3 tablespoons rice malt syrup or pure maple syrup OR to make it Keto add 1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon organic liquid stevia (depending on your sweetness level) instead

Instructions

  1. Place shredded coconut in a fry pan on medium heat and cook for 5 minutes until lightly golden and toasted.
  2. To make the chocolate mixture, melt the coconut oil in a saucepan on low heat. Once melted, remove from heat, add the maple syrup, whisking briskly until well combined. Then add the cacao powder, stirring until well mixed through.
  3. Place the shredded coconut into the saucepan and stir through the chocolate mixture. Spread evenly on a lined baking tray and place in the freezer for 30 – 60 minutes to set.
  4. Slice in desired sized pieces and serve. I recommend storing in the freezer to keep it firm.

Notes

  • I ended up putting 3 tablespoons of rice malt syrup in my chocolate mixture. If you use maple syrup, then 2 tablespoons may be enough.
  • The cook time does not allow the time for the coconut rough to set in the freezer, approximately 30-60 minutes.
