These chocolate chip coconut bars are easy to make, gluten-free, and a delicious treat that’s perfect to take to parties or to make with children.

The Sweet Marriage of Coconut and Chocolate
Coconut and chocolate are a classic combination that you just get the craving for, like peanut butter and chocolate. We opt for using Wildly Organic coconut flakes in this recipe because they are dehydrated in a process that doesn’t use chlorinated water and a bunch of preservatives, like most store-bought coconut flakes. And while you can use any kind of chocolate chips for these coconut slices, we recommend Wildly Organic’s fermented cacao nibs for a delicious flavor that packs a nutritious punch. Cacao is an excellent source of antioxidants, like flavonoids and polyphenols, fiber, protein, and healthy fat.
Graham crackers or shortbread cookies can be used to make the crust for these chocolate chip cookie bars. Most grocery stores sell gluten-free versions of both, or you can make your own using gluten-free flour. Coconut flour is an excellent gluten-free option to use in recipes that call for flour because it’s naturally low in digestible carbohydrates and is high in fiber and protein. It also has a great texture that can make bread light and soft, and baked goods stay moist.
Store your coconut slices in an airtight container on the counter or in the refrigerator.
