Almond Coconut Joy Bars



Yield 25-35 Bars

Happy Valentines Day!

I am a HUGE chocolate fan so today I am going to indulge a little.  🙂

Here is one of my favorites!


  • ½ – ¾ cup Brazil nuts, coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup pure honey
  • 1 ½ cups dried unsweetened coconut
  • 1 ½ cups almond flour meal
  • ¾ cup chocolate chips


  1. Line a cookie sheet with waxed or parchment paper.  Coarsely chop the Brazil nuts by hand or in the food processor, pulsing a few times.
  2. In a large saucepan heat honey over medium heat.  Reduce heat to simmer for approx.. 3-4 minutes, until thickened.  Add the coconut, almond flour meal and chopped nuts.
  3. Remove from heat and spread onto a 9×11” lined baking sheet – approximately ½” thick.  Smooth out batter with wet fingers.  Sprinkle immediately with chocolate chips, allowing them to begin to melt on the warm mixture.
  4. After several minutes smooth the melted chocolate with the back of a spoon or spatula to spread out.  Allow to cool in fridge, and cut into small squares or bars.


Replace Brazil nuts with chopped almonds for a variation.

Almond ‘flour meal’ can be purchased commercially in the natural foods section of your grocery store, or made in a food processor with blanched almonds using the ‘S’ blade.
