I don’t turn down an opportunity for chocolate.

Chocolate just makes the world a better place, so why wouldn’t you have chocolate?

Can I get an amen!

These bars were created because I was desperate to have something sweet, but didn’t want dairy or gluten in it. I also wanted to eat it STAT. There’s nothing worse than craving something sweet and having to wait forever to eat it.

Hence these No Bake Almond Joy Bars.

The bars can be made in less than 5 minutes so they definitely satisfy that sweet tooth in a hurry.

Now, if you want them at their “prime.” I like to let them harden up a bit by placing them in the refrigerator. This allows the coconut oil and chocolate to set instead of melting in your hand, so you get the full “bar effect.”

The key to making sure these bars turn out well is:

  1. Spray your loaf pan with cooking spray. (use either canola or coconut) This will ensure you can get those bars out easily.
  2. Make sure the coconut oil and almond butter are melted when you start to make the filling.
  3. Let the bars cool in the refrigerator before serving.
  4. Store in the refrigerator. The coconut oil tends to melt when stored at room temperature which leads to mushy bars, so keep the bars stored in the refrigerator until right before serving!

Follow those simple tips and you’re golden!

Honestly, I didn’t know how good these bars would be until I tested the filling.

The combo of the coconut flakes, almond slices, almond butter, almond flour and cinnamon is irresistible. Every bite of these bars screams coconut and almond! They are slightly sweet with a nice texture to them from the coconut. Topped with dark chocolate and yeah, they’re incredible!

Literally Mike, Cason and I have had a fight for these the past two times I made them.

You’re going to devour them, guaranteed. Bon Appetit friends and happy Monday!
