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.

Bounty bars ingredients

  • Unsweetened desiccated coconut – make sure the brand you use is unsweetened, not shredded coconut. This option takes longer to blend as the coconut is grated into thick pieces.
  • Coconut cream – I used canned coconut cream, full fat. Always shake the can before use.
  • Coconut oil – coconut oil is the key to create a no-bake dessert recipe. In fact, coconut oil is solid under 23C providing the moist texture of these bounty bars. You can’t use a different oil, but if you don’t like the flavor of coconut oil, choose refined coconut oil, it is bland in flavor.
  • Erythritol – to learn more about sweeteners, find out my top 4 keto-friendly sweeteners.

How to make no-bake coconut bars?

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.

Step 1: Blend all the ingredients

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.

Step 2: Press the batter in a pan

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.

Step 3: freeze the pan

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.

Step 4: 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.

Step 5: dip into melted chocolate

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.

Finally, place each chocolate-dipped coconut bar onto a plate covered with parchment paper and freeze again. This is a messy part, and it takes a little bit of time to dip all the keto bounty bars into chocolate. But, the result will be amazing.

Moist, sweet coconut fat bomb

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.

How to store keto bounty bars?

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.

Instructions

  • Cover a 9-inch x 9-inch square pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a food processor, add melted coconut oil, desiccated coconut, erythritol, and canned coconut cream (shake can before use!).
  • Process for at least 1 minute on high-speed. You may have to process 20 seconds, stop, scrape down the bowl and repeat until it comes together into a fine wet coconut batter.
  • Press the raw dough onto the prepared pan, making sure there is no air left between the batter. I like to press the batter with my hands first and then flatten the surface with a spatula. 
  • Freeze for 10 minutes to firm up. Don't freeze them too long, or they get super hard, and it is difficult to cut them into bars, and they break in pieces easily, still delicious but less pretty as it's more difficult to shape bars.
  • Remove from the freezer, lift the parchment paper to release the coconut block from the pan easily, and place it on a chopping board.
  • Use a sharp knife (warm blade under a flame to avoid breaking the bars into pieces!). Cut into 20 rectangles.
  • If you want, shape each rectangle into your hands to form round borders like the real bounty bars.
  • Place each formed bounty bar on a plate covered with parchment paper and set it aside in the freezer while you prepare the chocolate coating.
  • Meanwhile, melt the sugar-free chocolate chips with coconut oil in the microwave. Microwave by 30 seconds bursts until fully melted. Add stevia drops to adjust sweetness to your taste if desired.
  • Using two forks, dip each coconut bar into the melted chocolate mixture. Return each dipped bar onto the plate covered with parchment paper or on a cooling rack. When all the bars have been covered with chocolate, freeze again for 10-15 minutes to set the chocolate shell.
  • Store the bounty bars in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 weeks or freeze. Defrost 30 minutes before eating.

    Looks yummy. Just add an almond or two on top of each bar before chocolate coating, you have a mock almond joy!💓👍

  2. I guess you have to be careful with the brand of shredded coconut. I used 2 cups of Great Value Shredded Coconut (Unsweetened). I only made 16 bars cause my pan was 8 x 8. Mine work out to 7 net carbs and over 300 calories:(

    They are nice but will have to cut each bar into thirds or something. Gonna take forever to get through.

    • I didn’t weight each bars but since you spread the entire batter evenly into a 9 inches x 9 inches pan and then cut them into 20 equal bars, the carb per serve is the same for each. They are probably around 80 g. I hope it helps, Enjoy the recipe, XOXO Carine

  3. Thank you very much Carine for your wonderful recipes, really. I do not have access to sugar free chocolate chips, although I have cocoa butter and cacao powder – could the chocolate coating be made using those?

  4. Hi, I am having trouble finding canned coconut cream. I have canned coconut milk or a jar of coconut cream – which would you suggest and in what quantity? Many thanks.

  5. Hi I have made so many of your recipes and they are all delicious and was wondering if this bounty bar recipe could I substitute the coconut cream for coconut milk and would it make a big difference thanks and keep giving us your delicious recipes xx

    • I am so happy to read your message! As soon as you use canned coconut milk (not the coconut beverage that is full of water and barely no fat), the recipe will work. I hope you enjoy this recipe too, XOXO Carine

    I made these for a dairy free daughter. I substituted your chocolate chips for ones she can safely eat. Wonderful.

  7. 4 stars
    These are great, although we left out the sweetener and added taro powder instead.
    Thanks for the recipe.

  8. Hi…I’ve been following your blog and have tried several recipes successfully. I wanted to try your bounty bars and peanut butter cookies but realised both have only cup measurements and nothing in grams unlike your other recipes. Since going on keto I have stuck to using the metric system of measurement since it gives better results in Low carb baking. Would be grateful if metric measures could be provided. Thanks

    • Hello! thanks for making so many of my recipes. I only provides grams measurement when it matter like in baked goods. No bake recipes are not sensitive to this so you can use cups with no problem in the recipe you listed. Enjoy, XOXO Carine.

      • Hi…my bad for not specifying….I was referring to peanut butter cookies with almond flour that require baking. Thanks

        • I get it, I will see what I can do for you 🙂 Give me sometime to rebake those please. Thanks ! XOXO Carine

    • Hello,
      Nutrition panel appears after the recipe box, scroll down to see the full details. Enjoy the bounty bars, XOXO Carine.

  9. I would love to make these but I dont understand the measurments . I dont want to measure in grams. Is there one recipe with reg. Measurments? Thank you

    • HI Karen, If you look at the recipe I provide the measurement in cups and tablespoons as well. You can easily make this recipe without using grams then. Enjoy!

    • My 2 years old love it and I keep making those little bounty bars each week. Such a guilt free sweet treat! Enjoy.

  10. It is awesome that these are sugar free! I would love to try and make these, we have diabetics in the family and I could definitely do with eating less sugar 🙂 Thanks for the recipe.

    • Bounty bars are my favourite treats and this recipe is definitely the best sugar free candy bar ever for diabetic !
