Calling all the chocolate bars lovers out there! These homemade vegan bounty bars are SUPER easy to make and only require 4 ingredients!

If you’re anything of a coconut lover like me, you’ll probably crave every now and then the popular bounty bars (aka mounds) just as much as I do. And that’s precisely where this recipe comes from: late-night bounty/chocolate cravings.

I love recreating popular candy bars from scratch. They usually taste way much better than the commercial version, and most importantly you know exactly what goes in it.

These vegan bounty bars are possibly the best chocolate bar I have ever tested. Awesomely vegangluten-free, dairy-free and low in sugar, they’re ready in less than 30 min, and you only need 4 simple ingredients to make them: desiccated coconut flour, coconut milk, dark chocolate (make sure it’s organic vegan chocolate) and maple syrup.

Most recipes call for condensed milk, but you’ll be amazed by the great results you’ll get with organic coconut milk. Not only you’ll get the same delicious result, but it also makes this recipe completely vegan and it’s definitely a healthier option.

While the coconut bars set, melt the chocolate in a microwave or in a heat-proof bowl over a pan with boiling water ( bain-marie). Then arrange the bars on a cooling rack and cover each one of them with melted chocolate.

The chocolate you choose, is critical for the bars you’ll get. If you want bounty bars go for milk chocolate (but they won’t be vegan), if you want mounds go for 70% dark chocolate. I personally like the dark chocolate version, it doesn’t only taste better, but it’s lighter and lower in fat.
