Ingredients
  • Cookie Base:
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 large egg
  • Coconut Butter Filling:
  • 1 cup coconut butter, warmed (also called coconut cream concentrate)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 5 large eggs
  • Topping:
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, stir together the almond flour, cocoa, coconut sugar, and salt. Stir in the vanilla, coconut oil, and egg until you have a crumbly mix. Press this evenly into the bottom of an 8 x 8 inch baking pan.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, warm the coconut butter and the honey to liquid. Don't let the mixture get hot or you will scramble the eggs. Stir in the vanilla, then whisk in the eggs. Pour this over the cookie base, smoothing it out to the edges.
  4. Bake the bars for 40-50 minutes, or until the center looks set when you jiggle the pan. Remove from the oven and sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top. Let the residual heat melt the chocolate for about five minutes, then use a knife or a spatula to spread the chocolate into an even layer.
  5. Let the bars cool completely before cutting them into squares.
