1 cup pitted dates
1 cup Copra’s freeze-dried coconut
1/2 cup raw mixed nuts
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
1/2 cup white chocolate
2 tbsp Copra's organic coconut nectar
Zest of 2 key limes
Juice of 2 key limes
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of sea salt
Step 1. In a food processor, combine the pitted dates, Copra’s freeze-dried young coconut meat, raw mixed nuts, coconut oil, key lime zest, key lime juice, vanilla extract, and a pinch of sea salt.
Step 2. Process the mixture until well combined and the ingredients stick together when pressed between your fingers. If the mixture appears too dry, you can add a teaspoon of water or more lime juice to help it come together.
Step 3. Line a baking dish or pan with parchment paper for easy removal.
Step 4. Transfer the mixture to the lined dish and press it down firmly to form an even layer. You can use the back of a spoon or your hands to do this.
Step 5. Place the dish in the refrigerator for about 1-2 hours or until the bars are firm and set.
Step 6. Once the bars have hardened, remove them from the dish and cut them into desired shapes, such as squares or rectangles.
Step 7. Melt your white chocolate and add lime zest to it. Combine it well.
Step 8. Dip half of your rectangle into the chocolate, then add a little bit more lime zest as garnish.
Step 9. Place the tray in the fridge for 15 minutes to harden the chocolate.
Store the bars in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. These vegan coconut and key lime raw snack bars are a delightful combination of tangy key lime flavor and tropical coconut. They make a perfectly healthy and refreshing snack for any time of the day. Enjoy!
