You know, I don’t really love bounty. But I love coconut and I love chocolate and I love this version of healthy no bake choc bounty slice! I think you will too. Bear with me though, because it might look like a lot of work…but it’s actually super quick and easy so long as you have a food processor.
In fact, this is a make it in 20 minutes…then leave it to chill kind of recipe. Because the layers are actually quite sturdy, they don’t need to set in between- think gelatine based desserts- and they hold up really well to some good pressing down!
Seriously, you wouldn’t actually know that this is healthy, it tastes so good. But it’s low in sugar, and it doesn’t use honey which is a major plus if you’ve got little bubs! Can something with chocolate on top really be healthy? I think so. This uses 70% cacao chocolate, so really, it’s the best type you can find. And not only that, but chocolate does have mood lifting properties!
An aside. That’s my daughter’s hand. She’s about to turn seven (on Sunday!). Every time I see a photo of her hands I wonder how she got to be so grown up, they look like my hands! All the pudgy squidgy babyness is gone. My son is losing it too. What will I use in photos when it’s gone? And I’m kind of feeling nostalgic for those cute baby hands. Not nostalgic enough to have more kids though.
If you’re looking for a party food this is ticking all the boxes and it can go in a lunchbox too with a good freezer brick. The coconut oil in the chocolate on top helps to keep it a little more shelf stable. But it’s probably not going to stay in shape on a 45 degree summers day!
