Almond Joy Bars

Ingredients

For the crust

  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon tapioca flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup melted ghee or coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • pinch of salt

For the coconut layer

  • 2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the chocolate layer

  • 2 cups mini chocolate chips
  • 16 almonds (or more depending on how many squares you’d like to make)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease an 8×8 glass baking dish and line with parchment paper (this will help with removal to cut the squares later). Add all ingredients for the crust into a food processor and pulse until completely combine. The dough should mix into a slight ball once combined. Put dough in a pan and use your fingers to press dough around evenly throughout the pan. Poke holes with a fork in the dough to keep it from rising in the oven. Bake crust for 20 minutes, until golden brown. Remove then let crust cool.
  2. Place all the ingredients for the coconut layer in a food processor and pulse until coconut becomes fine and completely combined. Spread coconut layer on top of crust and spread evenly throughout. Place in freezer for 5 minutes.
  3. Melt chocolate in a double boiler or microwave. Pour melted chocolate over coconut layer and use a spoon to smooth throughout. Place the almonds throughout the chocolate layer then place in the freezer for 10 minutes to harden the chocolate.
  4. Once hardened, bring to room temperature before cutting into squares then serve up. They are definitely better at room temperature when the chocolate has softened up a bit!
