These no-bake coconut bars with chocolate shells are very similar to the popular keto bounty bars, without the carbs! Bonus, this is the easiest keto snack to make since it uses only 4 pantry ingredients and no oven! Let’s see what you need to make keto bounty bars in less than 30 minutes.
Keto bounty bars, also called no-bake coconut bars, or no-bake Mounds bars, are made in a food processor. Below are the 3 simple steps to follow to make these no-bake coconut candy bars.
It is important to bring all the ingredients together into a food processor bowl. In fact, the blade will pulse the coconut into a finer texture and crate the sticky batter you need to form bounty bars. It’s also important that you use melted coconut oil, not solid. Usually, a blending time of 1 minute is enough to bring all the ingredients into a raw dough that is easy to work with.
Prepare a 9-inch x 9-inch square pan lined with parchment paper. Press the raw coconut dough onto the pan using a spatula to smooth the top. Make sure it is firmly pressed to avoid air that could make the bars fragile.
Freezing the pan is the key to set your keto bounty bars. The cold from the freezer will solidify the coconut oil creating firm bars that are easy to cut into smaller bars. You must freeze the bars for at least 10 minutes up to 15 minutes, not more, or it will be difficult to cut into bars.
To avoid the bars to fall apart or crumble, warm the knife blade under a flame. This is the trick to easily goes through the block of coconut and shape bars without damaging them. Then, to make your bars looks like real bounty bars, I recommend you shape them in your hands to form rounded sides.
The last steps consist of melted sugar-free chocolate chips with coconut oil to create a chocolate coating. Then, use 2 forks to dip each bar into the melted chocolate.

Yes, these bars are mainly made of fat, healthy fat from coconut oil that I remember is excellent if you are on a candida diet. I struggle with thrush for years. Since I eat coconut oil every day, I never experience candida anymore. The other good point about these bars, they don’t contain many calories, and they are very fulfilling.
These low carb bounty bars are as soft and sweet as the real bounty bars. If you have a really sweet tooth, you can adjust the sweetness with extra stevia drops. The chocolate coating is made of stevia-sweetened chocolate melted with a tiny bit of coconut oil. You can use any dark chocolate >78% cocoa powder.
No-bake bounty bars store up to 1 month in the fridge, in a sealed container. Otherwise, you can freeze your bounty bars and remove them from the freezer only 30 minutes before eating.
