Blend all ingredients in a high speed blender or with an electric mixer until and you have a moist, sticky mix. The coconut shreds should be MUCH smaller than they were before blending.
Line a 8×5 inch pan with parchment paper and fill in the coconut mix. Press down with your hands until it’s nice and firm. Smooth the top with a spatula.
Place in the fridge for 15 minutes. Then remove and cut into pieces.
Heat the chocolate in the microwave (30 second bursts) or in a water bath (place the bowl with chocolate into a larger bowl half-filled with boiled water. The heat gently melts the chocolate).
Fill melted chocolate into a plastic bag and pierce a hole with a needle. Drizzle the coconut bars with the chocolate.
Return to the fridge for 10 minutes so the chocolate firms up.
Nutrition is calculated per 1 coconut bar using chocolate with 90% cocoa solids.
I have made the recipe with both Sukrin Fibre Syrup and the Lakanto Maple Syrup. Both versions worked well.
You can go for ½ cup of powdered erythritol instead of the sugar free syrup. In this case, increase the coconut cream by ½ cup.
