No-Bake Coconut Crack Bars

Pin It!

I’ve FINALLY made a Pinterest page!

I’d love you forever if you want to follow: The Chocolate-Covered Pinterest Page

Anyways, on to today’s post…

coconut bars

These no-bake bars are completely addictive.

And you can make them in LESS THAN 10 minutes!

As if I needed yet another addictive no-bake recipe on the blog. Oh but one can never have enough no-bake recipes, right? Especially when there is coconut involved…

COCONUT CRACK BARS 1 cup shredded coconut, 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, 1/8 tsp salt, 1/4 cup... Full recipe:

You know what else one can never have enough of?

Obviously I would say chocolate. (The eleven different types of chocolate bars in my kitchen pantry attest to that.) My roommate would say makeup, as her collection could stock three separate branches of Sephora. My sister would probably say shoes. Although she might say nailpolish. She really does have a lot of nailpolish.

And one can never have enough coconut. Except maybe my crazy boyfriend who just yesterday informed me that he doesn’t like coconut. I think I stared at him blankly for over five minutes, trying to comprehend that statement. You know, I also once dated a guy who didn’t like chocolate… 😕

5 Minute Coconut Crack Bars


Print This Recipe 5/5


  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut (80g)
  • 1/4 cup agave or pure maple syrup (or 1/4 cup water and 2-3 nunaturals stevia packs)
  • 2 tbsp virgin coconut oil (For all substitutions in this recipe, see nutrition link below)
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • optional raw chocolate chips - recipe in the Chocolate-Covered Katie Cookbook
Yield: Makes 6-8 Bars


Combine all ingredients in a food processor. (Perhaps you can mix by hand if you don’t have a food processor, but I haven’t tried.) Squish into any small container (I used a 7×5) and fridge for an hour before trying to cut. (Or freeze for 15 minutes.) Can be stored in the fridge or freezer, for at least a few weeks.

Dishes? Scarves? Jars of peanut butter? I’m also going to throw jeans and bathing suits onto my list, because even with all the ones I already own, I always want to buy more. Oh, and puppies… I can’t go into Petsmart on adoption days for fear of taking home all the rescue puppies!

  1. OMG my boyfriend can’t stand coconut either! Crazy and annoying because I LOVE it!!! I personally could never get enough sweets (all types). Candy, cake, cookies, ice cream… anything. Love them!

    1. My husband doesn’t like coconut either, what’s up? Maybe it’s a male thing?

      1. Nicole S. says:

        Must be because my husband doesn’t like it either!

        1. Annie says:

          And neither does my dad! I think you’re right about it being a male thing. My older brother doesn’t like sweets, period. (Actually made my sister a b-day ‘cake’ when they were little: bowl of popcorn surrounded by scallions. Soooo strange….)

          But my sister and both LOVE coconut – and dk chocolate, especially!

          1. mel says:

            I don’t know – my dad loves it. lol

          2. Spence says:

            Not a male thing. Coconut is my favour flavor. I use to get in trouble when I was young for “borrowing” the shredded coconut container and just going to town on it in my room.

      2. Jeanna says:

        Mine too!! Coconut must be a female thing. They don’t know what they are missing!!!

        1. Erin says:

          My hubby doesn’t like your coconut or chocolate. 😮

          1. Erin says:

            Not your just doesn’t like coconut or chocolate

        2. Jessica says:

          I must be an exception, cause I’m definitely female and I’m definitely not a fan of coconut.
          I can handle it very sparingly if it’s more garnish than main event. I made these bars for my mother though, she absolutely loves coconut. As far as males go: my dad doesn’t like it, but my brother does. So I’d say just like with anything else, everyone has different tastes!

          1. Ali says:

            Same here!

          2. Ali says:

            Thank you so much for this recipe!! My son is on a low-carb, high-fat diet for his condition and this is a staple for us. :)

            I’m wondering if you can incorporate chia seeds into this? What do you think? I’m trying to make a cheaper version/lower-carb version of these:

            They taste a whole lot like these crack bars except the chia seeds and they are a little chewier. Suggestions?

          3. Heather Cansler says:

            After reading this comment I just made these for the first time only with honey instead of maple syrup or agave, and I added a little over a tablespoonful of chia seeds. They are wonderful and definitely live up to the name “crack”.

      3. SayWhatSarah says:

        Neither does my hubby or my dad … lol! I loveeee coconut! :)

        1. trajayjay says:

          i’m a male, i adore both

        2. April says:

          My hubby doesn’t either, I LOVE it!!!

      4. Lauren says:

        Sorry girls… I also hate coconut! Not just a man thing!
        Still going to try making these. I kind of have to, since my fiancee pretty much just begged me! lol

      5. Carly says:

        Both my dad and my boyfriend love coconut!

    2. Anonymous says:

      do u have to melt the oil first?

    3. tamber says:

      Coconut Crack Bars So Cold from Freezer on Hot day Perfect Treat for COCONUT Fans!

  2. I’ve never been in love with coconut and the bf hates it but … just for you … I may have to give it another shot!

  3. Debbie Crews says:

    You are my new favorite food blog site. Thank you for sharing your yummy recipes.

  4. Can’t wait to try these! Love coconut!

  5. Katie A says:

    Hi I love your blog!! I was just wondering if you had any books or cookbooks for someone who is new to the vegan lifestyle? Thanks so much!

    1. When I first started out, “The Vegetarian Way,” by Virginia Messina, was very helpful. Any book that has chapters on all the nutrients/vitamins you need. :)

  6. I am so glad you posted this. Nobody in my family loves coconut as much as I do, and most of my friends are sort of neutral to it. I don’t understand! I get jars of coconut cream (tropical traditions and nutiva are the best I’ve found) and eat it with a spoon! I guess coconut cream and coconut butter are the same thing… It’s just all the parts of the coconut (oil, meat, milk) blended together to make a peanut butter consistency. If you come across it you have to try it!

  7. Emma says:

    Growing up in Australia we had a treat like this called Coconut Ice which I loooooooved. It was very, very sweet and coconutty and totally addictive. It was however, made with sweetened condensed milk so I haven’t had it since going vegan. Most definitely going to make some of this tonight – I’ll see if it’s a good substitute. Oddly enough we used to call it coconut crack too. :)

    1. @Emma — Reading through the comments, your condensed milk bit had me intrigued. I just made this recipe the other day and used vegan sweetened condensed milk, and it came out amazing! Thanks for the suggestion.

      And thanks @Katie for the original recipe too! This stuff is addictive.

      P.S. My husband hates coconut too. Go figure! :)

  8. One can never have enough Almond Butter. Or Mango. Both is delicious! 😉
    Oh, and my boyfriend doesn’t like coconut either. But sometimes he eats it when I prepare something and he doesn’t even notice. Same with bananas. He does like chocolate though 😉

  9. Erin says:

    I can’t wait to make these! I’m all out of maple syrup though. Have you tried them sweetened with honey? I’m impatient and think that I’m going to have to try these with honey :) Thanks again for another fantastic recipe!

    1. I haven’t… it might be a little honey-flavored, but as long as you don’t serve it to any strict vegans (who don’t eat honey), I don’t see why it wouldn’t still work!

      1. Michele says:

        I just made these with honey – Yummy! And you weren’t kidding about calling them “crack!”

        Coconut oil is good for you!

    2. Arcadia says:

      I just made these today, and I used honey and they came out wonderful! I also added a scoop of vanilla muscle milk light and some slivered almonds to make it into a protein/breakfast bar. They are AMAZING :)

      1. Anonymous says:

        Did you need to add extra liquid ingredients when you added the protein?

  10. LOVE me some coconut! ….I want to take a huge bite out of that!

  11. Rachel says:

    loooove coconut! I need to try these out 😀

  12. carolyn says:

    You can never have enough eyeliner. I need to go buy more…
    But I have like 14 colors so far.
    Obsessive much? You don’t know the half of it.
    I will have to go try this… but I probably will need to use lowfat coconut for my parents to agree to making it.

  13. Jessica says:

    yum! love coconut. I think I would melt some chocolate and pour a layer onto the tops of these =)

    1. Jennifer says:

      Made these tonight, yum! I melted some dairy free chocolate chips and spread on top, tasted like a Mounds bar, super yummy!!!

    2. Chocolista says:

      I made them and covered the top with chocolate coconut butter. Like a mounds bar. So yummy!

  14. Melissa says:

    One can never have enough chubby-cheeked toddler kisses. :-)

    Or chocolate. Definitely chocolate. We made coconut milk chocolate ice cream last night and it’s taking everything I’ve got to not eat it for breakfast! LOL

    1. Annie says:

      Yeah but as Katie mentioned in a recent post, research has shown that dessert-style breakfasts can actually be healthy. So you would in fact be better off having the ice cream for breakfast than dessert. Besides, you need more calories at the beginng of the day than at the end.
      Don’t torture yourself needlessly. 😉

  15. Kelsey says:

    Yum. Coconut is my favorite summer flavor!!

  16. Kavli says:

    Hmmm… these sound delicious. Mounds is one of my favorite candy bars so I’m sure I’ll love this. Where can I find unsweetened shredded coconut and virgin coconut oil? The baking aisle in my grocery store has sweetened shredded coconut. Thanks!

    1. Norma Flora says:

      I found my coconut at Whole Foods, bulk section. Trader Joe’s Has reasonably priced organic virgin coconut oil. Can not wait to make these!!!

      1. Kavli says:

        Oh thanks! I’ll try whole foods. We don’t have a trader joes in Dallas. :(

        1. We will soon… one is opening in Plano. 😉

          1. Kavli says:

            Oh really? I did not know – That’s awesome!!

    2. jackie says:

      I have a huge bag of Bob’s Red Mill I got at Big Lots w a 20% off coupon. Great deal and product if you have a Big Lots nearby.

      1. Kavli says:

        Oh wow that’s a deal! Thanks for letting me know!

  17. Wow that sounds divine!!!! Yum yum!! I love coconut

  18. This sounds great! Coconut is so yummy! I would really love to see a healthy version of those bars that are made out of cereal and corn syrup and topped with peanut butter and chocolate melted together! Do you know what I’m talking about? They are SOOOOOOOOOO good.

    1. Amy says:

      Scotheroos? They’re kind of different than you’re describing, but maybe?

      1. Ya I just googled Scotheroos…YES YES YES! So DELISH! I always made them with chocolate and peanut butter but my friend says she makes them with butterscotch chips too so that makes sense they’re called Scotheroos. YUMM!!!

        1. Amy says:

          I always put the peanut butter in with the rice krispies and corn syrup. Then chocolate and butterscotch on top. So good.

  19. I need to make these ASAP! I am a huge coconut fan and can’t get enough of it lately! Nothing better than a great big serving of healthy fats!

  20. Shannon says:

    You know, the Coconut Crack Bars would be REALLY good, and look really pretty, too — with a little chocolate drizzled over the top of them!! Might have to give that a try!! Thanks for sharing all your wonderful recipes!!

    1. Jaime says:

      That’s what I was thinking too…it’s like a homemade Mounds bar, but healthier!

  21. Can’t get enough of: frozen blueberries in almond milk, sprinkled with truvia. I love the stuff. Let it sit for 5 minutes & the milk turns ice.

    1. Jasmin says:

      I thought I was the only one who did this? Hahaha it’s delicious!

    2. Carrie says:

      We call it blueberry cereal. Love it

  22. Lea says:

    I need to make these soon! They look so delicious!
    My boyfriend also doesn’t like chocolate, but that just means more for me!

  23. connie says:

    did i miss a post someplace, i just read your cookbook? your putting out a cookbook? wow when? im so excited, all your recipes in one spot, cant wait to get that, will buy several so i can give out to friends, this will be the best cookbook ever, when do you think it will be coming out? ohhhhh we are have such amazing recipes, i am so glad you are going to put them out in a book…

    1. Jasmin says:

      I know! I’m super excited too.. but I think all the recipes in the cookbook are going to be new ones… so nothing from this blog.. I wish we could get a cookbook with all the best recipes from here though… like the cookie pie!

      1. Thank you both! :)
        It’s going to be a lot of new recipes, but also some of the old ones. I think the cookie pie will be in there!

        Oh, and this was the post where I mentioned it:

  24. Barb says:

    my boyfriend doesn’t like coconut either! while im not a HUGE coconut fan, I can’t imagine life without pina coladas :)

    for him, I think it is a texture-thing, not a flavor-thing. I would totally make these chocolate-coconut by adding some cocoa powder. yum!

  25. jenny says:

    When we started dating, my boyfriend said he didn’t like coconut or coffee. Two years later, he likes both! There’s hope. :)

  26. Nina says:

    Yummmm! I love coconut! This is a must try..and maybe drizzle alittle chocolate on them. 😛

  27. Lori Ann says:

    Ummm why are the delectable little bites not dipped in chocolate?!?!? I have a whole tub of Tropical Traditions coconut just wating to meet its purpose in life…Yum!

  28. Rachel says:


    But I can never get enough peanut butter!!!

  29. Janice says:

    My hubby doesn’t like coconut either. That’s OK. More for me. :)
    I was experimenting a few months ago and ended up with something nearly identical to this, though I nested it between two layers of home made chocolate. Delish! 😀

  30. I live in a dorm room this year, so no-bake recipes are perfect for me! I’ll definitely be trying this out.

  31. connie says:

    your cookbook isnt going to have blog recipes, well then i think you should do two cookbooks, one for the new recipes and one for the blog recipes, i know i can just come on here and search but would be so nice to have them all in one place and also love sharing your recipes, i always share your blog on my facebook, but dont know if alot of people spend time going thru blogs, yours is amazing, i hope my friends and family that i have shared your blog with actually read it, you have amazing recipes and i love your stories..thank you so much…

    1. It really means a lot to me that you’ve shared it, Connie. Maybe when I’m done with the cookbook, I can get all the old recipes together in some kind of free e-book or something for people!

      1. Christi says:

        I like this idea too! :)

  32. Maija says:

    I can’t believe you didn’t drizzle chocolate across them!
    I bet you could easily poke some almond pieces in there too.
    Almond J O Y !!!!

  33. My hubby doesn’t like coconut and neither does my son (my daughter does, though). You either love it or you hate it. I love it <3

  34. Kelly says:

    Coconut crack is right. This recipe is amazing. Mine never made it to the fridge. I ate the whole thing. Love the recipe.

  35. shoes. Never ever, will I have enough shoes.

    My mom doesn’t like coconut either – I will never understand it!

  36. Nikki says:

    Hi Katie! I love your blog! I am addicted to sweets and I am so glad there are things I can make, that I don’t have to feel guilty about! Thanks for your recipes. Question: Do you think these could travel in a car for an hour without getting yucky? I know you said they need to be refrigerated, but I was hoping they would make it to my destination. :)

    1. Unfortunately, I don’t think they’d hold up… maybe on a lot of ice in a cooler?

      1. Or just don’t cut into bars yet… and then stick the container in the freezer when you get there, to re-freeze :).

        1. Nikki says:

          Thanks for the reply..we’ll see what happens 😉

  37. Caron says:

    I just made these and they are absolutely delicious! Thanks for the recipe, Katie!

  38. Kaycee says:

    Looks awesome! My husband loves coconut (but doesn’t like chocolate!) so I think these will be a hit! I always love your recipes! You got me started using coconut oil, and now I use it often when I cook and bake. Thanks!

  39. Elli says:

    What about using coconut flour? It’s just really finely ground coconut flakes, right? I’m not so into the coconut flakes texture, too “waxy” for me. But if I used coconut flour..? I assume it would work because it is technically the same ingredient and would just soak up the liquid of the coconut oil and coconut sugar.. I think I might try this and see if it works out :-)

  40. Laura M says:

    I’m super excited for the healthy magic bars!!!!

  41. Shelly Moe says:

    I got married last year and I love wedding cake. One day while we were driving around doing wedding preparation tasks my soon-to-be-hubby tells me only eats the cake at weddings to be polite. He really doesn’t like cake that much. What?!?! Like you, I think I stared at him for about 5 minutes while I tried to comprehend what he had just said. He had no plans to not have cake at the wedding (whew!), but what a shocking statement to make a month before the wedding!

  42. I was surprised these really only had coconut! I bet they taste amazing! I love coconut, haha although I can’t imagine anyone NOT liking chocolate!

  43. Erika says:

    I want to try this recipe, but I don’t have any coconut oil. I do, however, have a tub of Earth Balance coconut oil spread; do you think it would work if I used that and melted it first?

    1. Sorry, I really don’t know.

      1. Erika says:

        Well, I’m trying a half recipe of it this afternoon. We’ll see if it sets up; if not, it tastes like it’ll make a fantastic icing for some chocolate cake or brownies. 😉 I’ll report back.

        1. Erika says:

          They turned out a little soft, but they did hold up in bars and they taste awesome!

  44. Steph says:

    These are SO good! I’ve tried so many of your recipes, and not one has failed me! Please keep doing what you’re doing!

  45. Gloria says:

    Yum….ever sound good! I’m going make them…..both me and my bf LOVE coconut!!

    Love your blog!! Great recipes…..I want to try them all.

  46. Jill Frank says:

    Sad to say, but my hubby doesn’t like coconut either. I think it is a guy thing. I think I will have to add some chocolate to this, and maybe an almond? Can you say almond joy?? Thanks for posting.

  47. Betty says:

    I LOVE coconut!! I wonder how they would be with some Rice Krispies mixed it!

  48. Sarah the official CCK drooler @RomneyRyan2012 says:

    … shoes and dresses!!! EVIDENCE: visit my closet… and never come back. It’s a jungle in there.
    my bad.

  49. Ooo I actually have all the ingredients for this one! Going to make these today!

  50. j3nn says:

    Needs a chocolate ganache frosting! haha These sounds super yummy!

  51. LOVE!! One can never have enough LOVE <3. Love these!! They look amazing!! Gotta try them asap :))

  52. Jennifer JCD says:

    Hi Katie,

    It’s been ages since I’ve commented… it’s been a busy summer. I think ti’s great that you posted this recipe. I made these this morning, from my own very similar recipe, just before I saw this. We must be thinking alike! Anyway, just thought I would pop in to say hi and still think you are great!!

    1. Just yesterday, I came across the photo of you with all the hay. I was like, “I wonder how she is doing.” Good to hear from you! :)

  53. Arleen says:

    Coconut Crack! This is just awesome! On tomorrow’s menu.
    I can never get too many gummy bears. BJ’s sells 6 lb. bags but they never stick around my house for long!

  54. Saguna says:

    Ah, these look lovely… There has been such a surge of coconut based recipes lately! I’m actually quite excited to try these with a bit of coconut whipped cream on top!

    One can never have enough recipes! One the reasons I am addicted to food blogs= I love trying new foods in new ways.

  55. These look ridiculously easy to make & delicious to boot!

    One can never have enough larabars. Or chocolate. Or peanut butter. Or shoes. Or- the list goes on and on! 😉

  56. These remind me of coconut rocks that my aunty used to make…sigh…memories! :)

  57. Ame' says:

    One can never get enough movies. I own over 800, thanks to my cousin who left me all his when he passed away (he was a professor of media history), so I always have something on hand to watch. I love movies!!!

  58. Heather says:

    Just made these but used Coconut Water instead of the agave/maple syrup and added some cacao nibs to give them a little chocolate kick! Very yummy

  59. I really do with you were my house mate….

  60. Aimee says:

    I think it would be even better if you dipped it in or drizzled your homemade chocolate on it.. :) Instant both! going to have to try as they are another yummy my brother WON”T eat.. and it’s great to have snacks that are all mine!

  61. laura says:

    I’ve never really liked coconut either, but I’ve only ever had the sweetened fake stuff. Maybe if I had some unsweetened organic coconut I would like it.

  62. Mozzie says:

    well, i noticed that many people say they don’t like coconut, meaning “i don’t like this hard-to-get-out-from-between-my-teeth-thing”. To many people coconut reminds of something dry and messy, which doesn’t allow them to fully enjoy the taste. now be careful, i have to confess – before i tried making your coconut butter fudge, i was one of such people as well.. try making your chocolate fudge for your friend, my hating-coconut friends tried it and they confessed that this is the only form of coconut they ever enjoyed :)

  63. India says:

    I love coconut, bounties, water, milk, macaroons!
    Thought it was healthy but its so high in saturated fat, isn’t this the bad kind, I thought it was only in animal products x x x

  64. Darcie says:

    Ooooh, I was in need of a good snack recipe to make with everything I already have. Perfect! I sort of want to halve the coconut and put some crispy brown rice cereal in. Maybe I’ll do both.

    And, one can never have too much fabric!

  65. jenica says:

    One can never haven enough socks and underwear. No matter how many I have, they are still always the first things to force me to do laundry.

  66. One can never have enough handbags…….and cocounut butter! These look way too easy….could be a bit dangerous. My daughter loves coconut and these would be a great special treat for her.

  67. SHOES!!! :) oh those sound delicious! love it!

  68. This coconut crack bars look amazing!!! I have to try this recipe!!! Yummy!!

  69. This looks very tasty. You know what would be great with it? A melted chocolate chip topping! lol Gotta get chocolate in there SOME how! ;D

  70. Kathryn says:

    I can’t live without running shorts! Even though I don’t run cos it hurts my ankles. They’re just so comfy.

  71. Annie says:

    I’d say jeans, shorts (love running), books (of course), chocolate (obviously!), and onions – as strange as that may sound. They’re actually my favorite vegetable. Which could account for my not being prone to infection.

  72. Angela says:

    Uh…..You had me at “Hello”; you lost me at “I don’t like coconut!!” :( That’s crazy!! I LOVE coconut!!!! But I too get the up-turned nose when I mention a coconut cream pie for the work potluck! Or if I make (unhealthy) coconut cake for the quarterly birthday cake! So, I sympathize, but hope your boyfriend is accomodating to your need for coconut treats!!

  73. Suzanne B says:

    These sound so good! I did try making them today, but I had the reduced fat shredded coconut…. and I think that doesn’t work as well, as it seems dry.

    Thoughts………I wonder how coconut butter would be in this, and I wonder if this would hold up to being rolled into ball shapes? I will try it again, after I get a new bag of coconut.

    Love love love coconut!

  74. Rana says:

    These would be fun with some coloured coconut too! Just picture two or three colours on a plate to serve – FUN! Thanks again Katie.

  75. Hannah says:

    This one can never have enough colored pencils, crayons, markers, paint, paint brushes, or pens apparently. My cupboard runneth over. You would think I’m an artist. I’m not. I guess I missed my calling. I’m so glad you didn’t miss yours. I love your blog & recipes, Katie!!!

  76. Moni Meals says:

    This is something us food bloggers have not seen possibly ever!! great work Katie, I can’t wait to make it, hopefully soon too. Maybe dipped in chocolate, who is with me!

  77. Megan says:

    Is coconut oil just coconut butter warmed up or melted?

  78. Kathryn says:

    This recipe may excite me more than any of your chocolate recipes (which are amazing). My hubby and I love Oskri coconut bars and I’ve wanted to replicate them for ages. It looks like you’ve done all the work for us.

    Oskri coconut bars come plain – if you could call this plain – and dipped in dark chocolate. I plan to make a batch (or two) and try dipping some of them.

  79. Mary L. says:

    why aren’t these covered in chocolate?
    that’s okay, I can fix that.

  80. Susan says:

    mmmm I saw these on pinterest and HAD to make them. Decided to add chocolate chips to the mix before I ran the NINJA! I could have just melted some chocolate, but I was feeling lazy and this recipe was easy. After I pressed it in my pan, I added sliced almonds on top! Delicious! Not pretty white like yours, but tastes so good!

  81. Ruth says:

    Great great recipe! I love coconut! and I was laughing so hard when I read your boyfriend doesn’t like coconut, LOL! Same thing happened to me and my husband 😛

  82. Brenda says:

    Oh you bet I melted some chocolate and drizzled it over top of these superlicious coconut crack bars! Then I toasted some more coconut and used chocolate and toasted coconut with them…fabulous!

      I thought I was the only one with a supply of collectibles that no one else finds interesting. XD Music and books are splendid responses, I’m on board! ^^

  84. Olivia says:

    One can never have enough rubber ducks! But maybe that’s just me. I have 360+! I guess you could say my rubber duck collection has gotten a bit out of hand… 😛

  85. Jilly says:

    These look freaking delicious!! I love coconut. There is a Latino coconut candy that i could eat everyyyy day that my ex-b/f introduced me to. OMG…

    Things i can NEVER have enuf of: Nail polish!! I’m an addict. I do my own nail art etc. One of my hobbies in my early retirement. (;

    I also could never get enuf of choc and pb, or choc and coconut as far as sweets, and Mexican foods or pizza as far as meals.

    Love you Katie!!

  86. michelle says:

    This looks amazing. Just wondering if you or anyone has tried it with the water and stevia? I’m curious if it becomes icy or crystallized more?

    1. Yes, I tried both ways. It’s a little drier with the stevia, but both ways work. :)

  87. Kerry says:

    I split the mix into 2 & added spiralina powder & a little honey to one batch & kept the other 1 as per the recipe. Layered the green, sweeter layer on top & it is delish! Thanks for sharing such yummy recipes!

  88. Megan says:

    One can never have enough…brownies, peanut butter, oatmeal…Seriously, I have peanut butter at least once a day…I could go through an entire jar of Teddy’s all-natural chunky peanut butter by myself in a week. Oatmeal I have at least five days a week for breakfast. Brownies I have whenever there’s ice cream in the freezer to make a sundae! I don’t know if they have it around you, but I buy this brownie mix called “No Pudge! Brownie Mix.” The mix itself has no fat, and all you add is yogurt. It’s a more natural brownie mix, and it makes really chewy brownies. I always call the middle piece :)

    1. Peanut Butter Bunny says:

      Gosh, I know right!? I can’t go without that beautiful…thick…yummy stuff for more than a day! If I do, then check the jars of the other butters for a crime. 😉

  89. Peanut Butter Bunny says:

    Ahhh! So much catching up! It was totally worth it though to be hit with all of the goodness at once. 😀 I happen to remember “coconut crack sauce,” lol. Anything with coconut is a sure win! Oh my, um….jars of peanut butter, and dish rags! XD And shirts and jeans in general… Heh. And all of the foodie essentials; the various flakes, bananas (for the banana lovers)…and definitely oatmeal! An abundance of veggie-colors in the fridge never hurt either. 😉 And…um…video games. Or we would have enough of those, if they didn’t keep coming out with new ones every month. XC

  90. Dawn says:

    I just made this – with almonds and melted chocolate chips/coconut oil on top. YUM! Thank you for another addiction. You can never have too much chocolate …or strappy tank tops… or sun.

  91. Wow these sound so simple to make too! So little ingredients, I love it. Man, I have been on a TOTAL coconut kick lately too; absolutely love it! :)

    + I love that you do the random older recipe shares at the end of each post btw.

  92. Brittany says:

    Ohmygoodness. I love, love, love coconut. I want to try these immediately! I cannot believe that I’ve been in the dark about this website until today! I have SO much to catch up on! I’m thinking I’ll just have to try about 14 recipes a day until I catch up.

  93. Bek @ Crave says:

    Ohhh I like the not-so-crazy ingredient list! I might even have it all in my cupboard :)

  94. Sarah L says:

    Haha, my boyfriend doesn’t like coconut ether! I’m not a huge fan, but it’s nice now and then. I think I can never ever have too many clothes. Pants, t-shirts, socks, whatever, I crave that A LOT.

    On a different note, I liked the design on these pictures. Oh, and btw I love that little smily below the wordpress admin button. It’s kinda cute.

  95. Kelly says:

    I agree with Sarah above, one can never ever have too many clothes!! OR eat too much almond butter or avocado! :)

  96. Aline says:

    Looks like a healthier version of “cocada”, which is a very common dessert in Brazil! I love it, so must try that!

  97. j says:

    haha I know all the tight-asses who flock to your blog because you always apologise and cater to their farts are going to be annoyed by this title, but it is funny as hell LOL. Especially bc and my bf call the McDonalds breakfast sandwiches “crack sandwich”

  98. voge says:

    days off from work, vacations, and I know this is bad, but, diet soda

  99. I love no-bake desserts! I bet these would be REALLY good frozen too!
    I’m sure someone probably already said this above, but I think you can never have enough open jars of various nut/seed butters. My pantry definitely proves that (although I only have TWO right now- an all-time low record for me!). I’m sure that will change within a day. :)
    I agree about the dogs too. I restrain myself with two- I am a crazy dog lady!

  100. It’s funny, I used to be one of those people that didn’t like coconut either! But as I started cleaning up my diet and eating healthier, I grew to like it! Now I don’t know what I would do without coconut oil, coconut butter or coconut sugar! :) These bars are an awesome idea!

  101. Annie says:

    Coconut macaroons in bar form! O_O Must try this! (P.S., I’dd add in chocolate chips in mine. ;))

  102. Not only do those look amazing but so easy! I can never have enough chocolate ganache. Chocolate ganache on everything please!

  103. You can never have enough…jars of nut butter and bananas. Whether those are eaten together or separate they’re a serious staple in our house!

  104. Erica says:

    I plan to try these tonight, in single-lady serving form 😉 Plan is to combine 2 Tbs coconut, 1.5 tsp coconut oil, and some liquid vanilla stevia drops, then pack it into mini-muffin cups, hopefully it works!

  105. Rena says:

    One can never have enough BOOKS!

  106. Liz says:

    So good, I literally almost licked the food processor blade. It was about halfway up to my mouth when I realized that the blade would be sharp! Delicious!!!

  107. Maša says:

    One can never have enough no-bake recipes! 😉

    My brother loved them – and he claims he doesn’t like coconut! They are delicious, maybe just too sweet for my taste. So less syrup the next time. :)

  108. Tracey says:

    I can never have enough house decor for the seasons!! I couldn’t help myself today with all the autumn decor coming out in all its splendor, I had to buy buy buy!!

    When I got home I made these bars to remind myself that it is, in fact, still summer and I should celebrate it while it is still here. Lately every time I go to Good Earth for my caffeine fix they have this Lemon Lime Coconut Loaf that stares me in the face. I promptly ignore it each time but as soon as I got home with half the java skyrocketing my energy levels I got to work on these bars – and added both lemon and lime zest and a little freshly squeezed juices to the mixture. WOWZA!! Summer in a bar!! Yum! Thanks for the recipe!!

  109. Rebecca says:

    I have been using Xylitol in my recipes (after building up a tolerance to it) and it ROCKS. Thank you SO MUCH for these awesome recipes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  110. Alyssa says:

    Hi Katie! I really love your website and your recipes are great. :-) I can NEVER get enough of peanut butter and semi-sweet chocolate chips. Literally, I’ll just get a spoonful of peanut butter and then sprinkle it with chocolate chips…then I’ll go back for more and more….I also LOVE ice cream with melted peanut butter on top. Oh my Lord of the Rings – that is SO GOOD!

  111. Meg says:

    These look beautiful and addictive! I don’t understand people who don’t like coconut. That’s like not liking puppies or sunshine.

  112. Nichole says:

    You are a Saint! I just made these…. for someone who only eats maple syrup or honey as sweeteners its been hard to find snacks that actually taste good. these bars are ridiculously good. thank you soo much for completing my evening with this tasty healthy snack! Has anyone made them with stevia? think I might try it next time to reduce the carbs even more, even tho the maple syrup really adds a great flavor to the recipe

  113. jamie says:

    i just burst out laughing because after 8 years together i found out my husband didnt like coconut and i also just stared at him not understanding how someone can not like it… it still floors me to this day and makes me sad because what am i going to do make a gigantic coconut cake just for myself?… well i DO want to but don’t want to hear it from him how i ate the whole thing my self in a day or

  114. One can NEVER have enough coconut. Coconut anything. I believe heaven is built with coconut…it truly is heavenly…

  115. Karen in SE Texas says:

    Hi Katie,
    I made these today, but threw in a few semi-sweet chocolate chips before I put them in the fridge to chill. (Chocolate – the only thing that could make them better, right?? LOL) They were great. I love your recipes. You are so creative. Keep up the good work for those of us who want healthier desserts. :)


  116. Karen in SE Texas says:


    I made them with 1/8 cup of maple syrup, 1/8 cup of water and 1 packet of stevia. Oh, and the chocolate chips as I prevously mentioned. They were really good. Reminded me of a Mound’s Bar (the “don’t” in “sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don’t…”)

  117. Beckers says:


    Also I caved and bought a vita mix the other day, it truly is the best thing ever!

  118. Heather says:

    Hi there, Katie

    Is there any way I could use non-virgin coconut oil for this recipe instead? All I have on hand is the non-virgin kind, and it would be quite expensive for me to buy a container of the virgin coconut oil. I’m pretty new to the coconut oil scene, as I have only been an adherent of the Paleo diet for just a few months.

    Or, if anyone else reading this comment knows if regular coconut oil would be an acceptable substitute for the virgin coconut oil, would you please let me know?

    Thank you!

    1. Alanna says:

      Hi Heather! I’m not 100% sure, but I think the only major difference between the two is that regular coconut oil has fewer health benefits because it’s undergone additional processing. Virgin oil should smell and taste more like coconut, but my guess is that both would give you a similar consistency in this recipe, even if the flavor isn’t as coconutty. (If I’m wrong, someone please correct me!) This might help, too:

      1. Heather says:

        Thanks so much, Alanna. You have been a big help. Even though the non-virgin coconut oil doesn’t offer as many benefits, I think I am going to try it out in this recipe. Next time, I’ll just buy the virgin kind.

      2. Heather says:

        Strange coincidence, my mom came home with two jars of virgin coconut oil she said she was able to buy really cheap.

        Guess I won’t have to use the non-virgin stuff for this recipe, after all. 😉

        Still, I appreciate your helpfulness!

        1. Alanna says:

          Anytime! Sounds like the universe is telling you to make these coconut bars, haha. Enjoy!

  119. One can never have enough lipglosses! They make me so happy :)

  120. Valentina says:

    Well… hum.. I didn’t like coconut. Not at all.

    Then something happened. Love. Suddenly. Now I adore coconut, that’s weird, I’ve been eating coconut in a few months. I can’t explain that 😉

    PS: Never enough bags *_*

  121. allularpunk says:

    These look fabulous! I’m going to make them before I go in to work today and share them. Thanks! As for me, I can never have enough hummus. Or mixing bowls. I’m always drooling over mixing bowls, even though my cabinets are already stuffed full of them!

  122. Wow! These were fantastic. I was lured into making them when I saw how easy it was, and they are great! My family is a bunch of coconut fanatics, and we were very happy!


  123. My fiance doesn’t like cocoa!! (which is in half of my recipes!) I say that he’s loco for not liking cocoa haha!
    Personally, I can never have enough fruit. I eat a piece of whole fruit at least 2 times a day! Anyway, I’m excited to try these!

  124. Barb says:

    I made this recipe within one hour of reading the post! YUM — a perfect quick, no-bake sweet snack. I’m lucky that my husband likes anything i make for him!
    Thanks for much for creating all these healthy recipes.

  125. Tiffany says:

    Katie, I just made these and they are amazing!! Thank you for creating another delicious recipe!!

  126. Heather says:

    Just made up the coconut stuff then formed it into balls and dipped in melted chocolate after freezing. I have a feeling this will be most delicious. They certainly look good. Probably shouldn’t eat them before my husband comes home. There are four each. But there could be three each and that would be cool, right?

  127. Amber says:

    I decided to go ahead and experiement since I have 2 bags of reduced fat coconut I bought by accident, and I added an extra tablespoon of oil to add fat. I don’t know how they should taste, but I seriously want to eat the whole pan. AND I made a double batch because my pan was to big and I am going to a cookout tomorrow. Thankfully it is at my in-laws so I can keep these in the fridge. But I would say go ahead and try if your only choice is reduced fat or no crack bars at all!

  128. Nella says:

    Hi I tried these no-bake Coconut Crack Bars. I followed directions to the T but it’s way different from your picture. Did you miss an ingredient? #new2yourwebsite&lovingit!!!

    1. Nope. Others have tried it with success… so there’s definitely no typo in the recipe. Did you mismeasure something by any chance? Or forget something? I do that a lot!

      1. Nella says:

        Okay. I figured its bcuz i mixed it by hand. I also shredded fresh coconut myself so it had brown specks from the husk… Besides they taste gr8! It melts in your mouth! Not a good recipe to travel with though bcuz they melt in warmth or maybe i did something else wrong. Still love it! Thanks!

      2. Suzy says:

        What kind of coconut oil do you use? Is it liquid form or a more soft/solid form of oil?

  129. Lisa @bitesforbabies says:

    Made these this morning…they’re delicious! Although I have a sweet tooth I do find them a little too sweet. I think I might mix in some water and less agave the next time I make them!

  130. Rachel Lee says:

    These are great. They remind me of the candies that my grandmother used to have at her house that had the three colors (chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry) all together. I made a batch of this, then put half in the fridge and took the other half and added about a tablespoon of cocoa powder and blended then refrigerated. Delicious!!

  131. I would say no one can have enough chocolate. Just like you talked about in your peanut butter chocolate chip balls post — you can never get enough chocolate. 😉

  132. Christina says:

    …and i added dark chocolate chips, of course…

  133. Kimberly says:

    I made these last night and fell in love, yet my family wasn’t as smitten as I was. Per their suggestions, I will be putting dark chocolate mini chips and chopped almonds in them next time! Thanks for the amazing idea!

  134. I love coconut! It’s a very polarizing food… I have met many people who simply despise it, but I’ll never understand that. I could put it in everything I bake.

    I could never have enough Fabric. That’s it, you caught me. I already have more than I could use in my lifetime… but it is just so pretty and has so much potential!

  135. Beth says:

    I love coconut and can’t wait to make them – I’m going to cover them with chocolate, though. :-)

  136. Kim Scott says:

    Oh my goodness I think I have the same look on my face when people say they do not like coconut.. Huh? That’s just crazy talk. I can’t wait to try these, thanks for sharing.

  137. Melanie says:

    Well I don’t know what happened but these didn’t turn out for me at all. First of all the mixture is a yucky brown color from the agave. Secondly it barely made enough to cover 4″x4″ and is *maybe* 1/2 an inch thick…

    1. Lisa @bitesforbabies says:

      After looking at the quantity of the ingredients I already guessed it wasn’t going to make much…I would just triple (or quadruple!) the recipe! That’s weird that it turned a brown color…did you use the dark agave?! I used some agave and some brown rice syrup…you could try that!

  138. Alanna says:

    Has anyone tried these with sweetened coconut? I can never find the unsweetened type at the store, and I have two bags of sweetened shredded coconut in my pantry. I’m guessing I’d need to scale back the liquid sweetener, but just curious if anyone else has done it already. :)

    1. Lisa @bitesforbabies says:

      I wouldn’t use sweetened coconut..there are very sweet as is! I’m going to sub some of the agave with water next time I make them so they are not so sweet.

      1. Sonia says:

        I agree. Do NOT use sweetened coconut. These are very rich and sweet.

        1. Alanna says:

          I definitely get the impression that I wouldn’t want to use sweetened coconut AND the 1/4 cup sweetener in the recipe, but what I’m really wondering is whether anyone has tried sweetened coconut with either less or no additional sweetener (maybe just water to bind?) and if that works. It might not; just wanted to see if anyone had successfully tried it.

          1. Sonia says:

            She does list the option of using water instead of the sweetneers, so if you do that I would think it would be fine to use sweetened coconut.

          2. Chanelle says:

            I just made some and used sweetened shredded coconut and 1/4 c water as my “sweetener.” They are PLENTY sweet and really really yummy!

      2. Teresa says:

        I made these with sweetened coconut and water. Although the taste was very good, they didn’t stick together well even after being refrigerated. Perhaps the syrup is also useful for that…

  139. Sonia says:

    I just made these and they are chilling in the freezer (I don’t have the patience to wait an hour!). How are your bars so white? Between the maple syrup and the vanilla mine have a more ivory tone to them. Sort of the color of rice krispy treat. Do you use imitation vanilla? Also, the amount listed above hardly makes anything at all. I blended it up, looked into the processor and grabbed all my ingredients out again to double the recipe (just to make it fit reasonably in my 8×6 dish and they will be very thin bars with it doubled).

    1. Sonia says:

      Now that they have set and are ready they seem less discolored. Perhaps yours just look whiter due to the camera (I know that can hapen). Definitely glad I doubled it as the amounts given wouldn’t have made much (they turned out about 1/2 inch thick in an 8×6 pan). There was a bit of soupy maple syrup in the bottom of the pan (I have the same type of issue w/ krispy treats!) so I may need to just cut back a smidge of the syrup.
      These taste delicious! My daughters gobbled them up (not my 15 yr old, she hates coconut).

      1. Hmmm nope, definitely real vanilla extract. And they’re definitely the same color as in the photos. Maybe we used a different grade of maple syrup? Both my versions are white-ish: the stevia and the maple versions.

    2. I made mine with agave nectar and they came out light golden in color. And yes, it’s a very small batch. I pressed mine into the bottom of a square tupperware container that was probably only 5×5. I think it’s a bit much to say this makes 8 bars. 4 servings gives you smallish but reasonable-sized bars.

      1. Alisha says:

        I agree with Zoe. Did you double your recipe Katie? I got maybe a quarter inch into the bottom of a small tupperware container. Nowhere near as thick as your pictures but that turned out to be ok because they were pretty sweet. Crazy delicious … but sweet. I’ll definitely be making them again!

        1. Nope, that’s one recipe… but it’s a very close-up photo, so they probably look bigger than they actually are!

  140. Katie says:

    I am so excited that I found your site!!! So many ideas to try, so little time. Thanks for all the fantastic desserts to try!

  141. Tabitha says:

    Agave is LITERALLY addicting. Agave syrup, although seemingly healthy, is not. Most agave has even more fructose then high fructose corn syrup! STAY AWAY!

    I made this recipe with Xylitol, I just melted it in a sauce pan until it was nice and syrupy.

    I also will try it soon with coconut nectar which is extremely low on the Glycemic scale and also contains amino acids, minerals, vitamin C, and a broad-spectrum B vitamins.

    I love Chocolate Covered Katie Recipes! And YAY for coconut!!!

  142. Chris says:

    One can never have enough…! Or books…..cookbooks! And running shoes… And cinnamon… least five different kinds here minimum!! Spices, in general…because you just can’t be caught without!! And pudding stones…..a personal silly addiction. The bigger, the better! So intriguing! I carry one in my bag in case the subject ever comes up in conversation! SO, Katie…have you tried popcorn in coconut oil YET????? So light and yummy! Had some over the weekend and was reminded that I told you about it!!!

  143. Sarah says:

    I want to start by saying I absolutely love this blog, I have learned so much! This is the first recipe I have tried from this site that didn’t work for me. They had no flavor really and totally fell apart (I used the agave version). :( However, I think adding chocolate would have changed everything for the better. My boyfriend loves the Ultimate Fudge Pie, my coworkers love the Samoa Babies, and I love the 3 ingredient chocolate bars (and all the other stuff). Love it all!

    1. Liz says:

      Flavorless? You definitely did something wrong then. Did you use VIRGIN coconut oil, and did you use unsweetened coconut?

      1. Sarah says:

        Yes and yes. My coworker also made them and said the same thing I did. Not sure what the issue is!

        1. Diane says:

          Maybe it’s a climate thing? I didn’t have any trouble at all, but I have had trouble making my own coconut butter and I know Katie said coconut reacts differently in different climates?

          1. Katy says:

            You have to keep them frozen!

  144. i’m curious what would happen if you use sweetened, since i only have that in my house right now???

      1. Anonymous says:

        I used sweetened, and the plain water. TOO sweet. We’ll eat them, though. =D

  145. Diane says:

    Okay I can so see now why these have the name they do. Oh my, are they ever addictive. Thank goodness they’re so easy to make, because I think we are going to be making these A LOT! Yum!

  146. Janine says:

    Oh I love your recipe! Been wanting to bake this for my kids and realizing that it can be done in a no-bake style is really awesome to know! I also love the fact that you use coconut oil instead of butter. I will definitely create this one for my kids soon! :)

  147. Katy says:

    I’ve made these every single day since you posted them. Obsessed much?

  148. Debbie says:

    I made these the other day, and they turned out very crumbly. I put them in the freezer but they fell apart when I cut them. But that did not stop me from licking every last crumb off my napkin. They taste great!

    1. After reading your comment I just realized something…maybe you could add some ground flax seed? I know it works well as an egg substitute,so maybe it would have the same “sticky” effect in these?!

      1. Alanna says:

        Not a bad idea! It might also depend on the size of coconut shreds… I would guess larger pieces wouldn’t stick together quite as well, so maybe processing longer would help? Still need to try these myself!

  149. Dana says:

    I made these tonight. They were a perfect treat after another blazin’ hot day in SC. I could find only sweetened coconut at the store so I omitted the agave. Delicious! Thanks Katie :)

  150. I made these last night and they were great. Kind of like gooey macaroons, but without all the baking fuss. They’re very sweet! My husband loved that, but I thought it was just a tad too much. Next time I’ll probably use 3T agave instead of 4, and I’ll also sprinkle the salt on top instead of mixing it in, to go for that salted caramel vibe that I love so much.

    Here’s another tip to cut the sweetness a bit: melt some dark chocolate, pour it on top, stick it in the freezer for a few minutes to firm it back up. This was (and I hate to use the A-word) amazing!

  151. Mary says:

    i made your recipe with one tablespoon coconut oil and one tablespoon almond paste. They did not turn out beautiful like yours Katie.. but, they taste is so good. i put some mini chocolate chips on part of them. Thank you. (i think)

  152. Amber S. says:

    LOVED this! Made it tonight for dinner with a friend that is on a very strict diet due to allergies. I used 80 g of low-fat finely shredded coconut (because it was what I had), 30 drops of NuNaturals Vanilla Alcohol-Free Stevia Drops, 1/8 tsp finely ground Himalayan Pink Sea Salt, and 1/3 c of light coconut milk. Frozen results were absolutely delicious! Plan on drizzling the next batch with melted chocolate. Mmmmmm…

  153. Jenny says:

    Wow, so good, definitely addictive, I put almonds and chocolate drizzle on top of mine to make them even better. Love all your recipes!

  154. Elizabeth says:

    OMG! I just made these today. I did half puffed rice cereal/half shredded coconut. I just can’t seem to leave a recipe alone even the first time I make it. They are fantastic!! I made a double batch but it was so good and didn’t fill the 9×9 pan so I made another quadrupled batch. I’m thinking about melting some vegan chocolate to sprinkle on top or maybe some other topper. Love it!! Just found your blog thru a friend. Sorry I missed it for so long!

  155. Laura says:

    Oh oh oh these were so good!!!!!!

  156. Katie says:

    Found your blog via this recipe on pinterest and LOVE it! I made these last night and seriously so good. I don’t have a food processor so mixing by hand didn’t give the most attractive result, but still amazing :]

  157. Claire says:

    Hi Katie

    I made this at the weekend and I have to say there was far too much oil in it for my liking, the texture was like eating solid oil!! I then decided to re-make it with only around 3-4 teaspoons of oil instead and they were delicious!.
    I then made it slightly less healthy and poured melted chocolate over the top. Amazing – just like Bounty Bars if you guys get them in the States??

    Claire (England) XX

    1. I *think* I’ve seen them before, but that might’ve been when I was living overseas (or in airports), so I’m not sure if we get them here. I’ll have to look!

  158. Kelly Dickinson says:

    I repinned this blog on pinterest because I’m addicted to coconut like you’re addicted to chocolate!!

  159. Rachel Ramey says:

    Books! There can never be enough books!

    I’m not a huge coconut fan, either, but my hubby is, so I’ll have to make some of these for him.

  160. Claire Clark says:

    Just looking for sugar free recipes and this comes not sugar free Katie..

    1. Rachel Ramey says:

      Sure it is. There’s an option to make it with just stevia. That’s sugar-free. :)

      1. Laura says:

        Isn’t it sad when someone doesn’t even bother to read the post before making a criticism?

  161. Tammy says:

    You are a woman after my own heart! Never enough coconut or puppies! I have three cuddled around me snoring right now. :)

  162. Aundae Kell says:

    my fiancee and I dont like the coconut texture… idk why but with the coconut is crispy like it’s been backed in the oven, I can handle it but my fiancee still can’t…

  163. Claire says:

    these would be so good if you made them really small and thin, like sweet cracker-like things, and serve them like hors d’oeuvres with a swirl of fruit-flavoured whipped coconut cream on top, maybe with some fresh fruit, chopped nuts, or a drizzle of chocolate on top. these have great possibilities! now i just have to go throw an appetizer party…

  164. Jennifer W. says:

    Made these tonight. I made them a little thin so they fell apart just a bit but they are delicious!!! I am going to try them with a tad more coconut oil and drizzle with melted dark chocolate. Then they will be a yummy homemade Mounds bar!

  165. Regina says:

    LOL, what is wrong about people liking/ or not liking different things! Nothing so don’t be mean! My boyfriend hates coconut but I love it. Also he likes chicken livers which make me want to hurl! What, should we break up because of it! I will try that crack bars for me , it sound like something to get BUSTED for! and make him a different surprise not coconu!.

  166. jenifer says:

    Kgrains website has coconut & coconut oil for great prices! Here’s the link:

  167. Christy Corcoran says:

    Now all you must do is to put ground up almonds in there and dip the end in chocolate and you have a even nuttier chocolate yummy scrumptious bar!

  168. Amanda says:

    Changed the vanilla for banana. SOOOOOO GOOOD!!!! Thank you for the recipe. It is great for us Gluten free gals.

  169. Chelle says:

    I can’t wait to try this. i can never get enough coconut! I love the large coconut chips.

  170. Megan says:

    I def am using this recipe for my almond joy cravings. I think I will either dunk in chocolate or spread some on top and add crushed almonds.

  171. Maddie says:

    I made with a few squeezes of lime juice instead of vanilla extract and they’re delicious. So easy!

    1. Maddie says:

      …made *these bars

  172. Karen says:

    So, I made these tonight, and they’re sticky and didn’t come out like bars at all…they are also kinda ‘oily’ tasting. Did I do something wrong?

    1. I wasn’t there to see, so I really can’t say what went wrong… but I know there’s not a typo in the recipe, as other commenters have successfully made them. Did you use the right kind of coconut? (I don’t think they work if you use sweetened.)

  173. Anonymous says:

    I finally made these today and wow! I altered them a bit. I decided I wanted to toast the unsweetened coconut first so I did that and then rolled the mixture into balls. I made the chocolate sauce you used on the “reeses eggs” and coated the coconut balls in the chocolate. Heavenly!!! I doubled the recipe but added a bit less than double the maple syrup and they were great! Thank you for the great recipe!!!

  174. yovi says:

    Omg, I LOVE coconut! I just popped a batch of these bad boys in the fridge and I don’t know if I’ll be able to wait a whole hour before cutting into these! So glad that I found this blog btw, I’m obsessed 😉

  175. Mimi says:

    Just made these. They turned out much better than I was expecting. Used honey because I didn’t have any maple syrup. Even my kids liked them, although they did dip them in Nutella.

  176. Anonymous says:

    Found plain coconut. Doubled all but the maple syrup–way better than the ones w/ sw. coconut.

  177. Tina says:

    These are awesome!!! And addictive! Thanks for the recipe!

  178. belinda says:

    cand wait to try!!! i know my kids are gonna love them!!!!

  180. Susan says:

    I just found your website and I love it! This is the first thing I made – they are super easy and delicious!! Instead of making bars, I rolled the mixture into little “Coconut Crack Balls”. These are going in my lunch bag as an afternoon snack to have with tea. I think I might roll them in more coconut and maybe even some carob chips next time around. Thanks, Katie :)

  181. Samantha says:

    Would the texture change if I used liquid stevia in the 1/4 cup of water instead of the packs?

  182. Chef Kirsten says:

    OMG YUM! Seriously can’t wait to try these! I may take them for a dip in some melted dark chocolate. 😉 Coconut? Chocolate? All things good in this world. :)

  183. Melissa says:

    Wow!! These are amazing!! Thanks so much for this recipe!!

  184. AJ says:

    I just made these a couple of nights ago and they certainly did NOT disappoint. Rich, delicious – – melt in your mouth, yummy! I will make these again to be sure!

  185. Stacey says:

    Katie, you are the lady!! These were magical just like all your nummy recipes.

  186. Cherie says:

    I made these and melted chocolate over the top. AMAZING!!

  187. Cindy says:

    Where would I find coconut butter or chocolate coconut butter?

  188. Kathy W says:

    What is it that coconut haters hate about coconut??? My husband despises it. I love it. When I was a little kid, anytime I’d save up a little money, rather than buying candy I would buy a whole coconut. Can’t wait to try this!

  189. Mike says:

    I love the sound of this recipe. I’m trying to find a safe sweet food that my poor BFing wife can eat. Our little one is having issues with dairy, rice, and oats so there goes half the good deserts! When I saw this recipe I was thrilled, but wasn’t sure about whether maple syrup or agave were safe for a BFing mommy. I’m still going to look into maple syrup, even though my wife said its a known allergen that she wants to avoid, but agave. Read this article:

    I was shocked, to say the least. Sounds so innocent and healthy, but as usual there seems to be a dark side. What do you think?

  190. Jennifer law says:

    Why does every freaking recipe have to be “crack” this and “crack” that. Have you ever freaking done crack? You sound like a woman on too much antidepressants!

  191. Cassidy Wooldridge says:

    How many grams are in each bar if the recipe supplies 6-8 servings?

  192. we added two tablespoons of chocolate protein powder with two tablespoons of cacao on accident and they still turned out delicious! thank you katie! :)

  193. Mary says:

    Made these tonight, made a double batch and put 1tbls raw coaco powder in the second batch to top the first layer with. Used stevia for the sweetener. Delicious!

  194. Eirini says:

    Just made these. Thank you for this recipe! I love it!

  195. Nikki says:

    I think I have a she-crush on you!! lol. I have tried quite a few recipes, havent found one I don’t LOVE!! I added cacao nibs and tastes great! You ROCK!

  196. Hannah says:

    Hats. One can never have enough hats. Or stuffed animals. Or chocolate.

    This recipe looks delicious. I might have to make it someday….Scratch that might. I *will* have to make it.

  197. Mary says:

    Hey Katie, could you try to help me. I’ve made these coconut bars twice. The first time they tasted so good, but they werent cutable, too wet. Last night i tried again. I made a double batch and i used pure syrup for half and the 2nd half i used the water and stevia. Now i did use a slighter amount of water because of my first try. These are too crumbley. Again, i cant cut them like your photo. I’m 53, so ive been cooking a while. lol. Your recipe taste really good, i just need a suggestion to get the consistancy right. Any ideas?

  198. Kerry says:

    I don’t have a food processor but they came out just perfect mixing by hand. Shared with some folks at my gym and they loved them as well. Thanks~

    1. Nancy says:

      Yes, I made mine by hand too. But I wrote the recipe down wrong and added coconut oil by the teaspoon instead of tablespoon. So of course they don’t stick together! I realized what I must have done and just confirmed it by coming here….I am going to re-mix the whole shebang then I’m sure they will be fine. 😉

  199. Shaina says:

    Hi Katie, I kind of had the same issue as Mary (2 comments above). I used agave.. They tasted awesome! No complaints there, but they were really hard to cut…very wet and gooey. I ended up just rolling them into little bite size balls instead. But they looked absolutely nothing like your photo. They weren’t white…but that’s probably because I used amber agave, but they just don’t seem to have had the same consistency that yours did when you made them. Any suggestions? They were a huge hit despite this fact, so I know I’ll be making them again and want to know how to make them even better than this time.

    1. Did you freeze them long enough? Be sure your freezer is on a cold enough setting. They should be completely hard before trying to cut.

  200. Chloe says:

    The term “Crack” in anything food related is so incredibly insensitive.

  201. Karen Saintdenis says:

    Katie – a huge thank you for this recipe! I cook for our community dinner every Wednesday evening, which is a free meal open to everyone. We generally serve 100 plus meals every week and also send meals to our local women’s shelter. We use table linens, china plates, tableside service, well you get the idea…all about dignity. We have several repeat diners that are gluten free and this is such a simple delicious dessert that I can add to our menu. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  202. Marta says:

    Thanks for another great recipe. Instead of making bars, we used a mini muffin pan (12 servings) or a small cookie scoop (14 servings) and placed them into mini muffin liners for a party. They looked great on a tray with your Pecan Pie Babies. Both were a hit.

  203. MichelleW says:

    Hey Katie!! Thank you for introducing me to my newest addiction!! HAHA Seriously though, I see why you named them “crack” bars HAHA! I made a double batch 2 nights ago and they are almost gone already (after sharing them with friends of course)!

    Just FYI to everyone- I do not own a food processor (yet) but I do however own a mini ninja blender which worked just fine for this recipee! (It also worked well in making rolled oats into oat flour for another recipee). Anyways these babies are to die for eaten straight out of the freezer! :) A friend who tried these thought of dipping them into chocolate- I may have to try that!! Or adding mini chocolate chips into the mixture- Hmm….

    @Mary (above) Did you use UNsweetened coconut flakes? Also, I used agave syrup and they stuck together beautifully!

  204. Stacey says:

    Hi! Do you think this recipe will work with honey?

  205. Stephanie LeDuc says:

    Mike: Need to look into the alergies of Organic foods. My friends here that are gluten intolerant or sensitive are NOT with Organic, Non GMO filled foods.

    On another note, I must be the lucky girl, my husband loves when I make the oatmeal bottom, coconut middle drizzled on the top is 85% dark chocolate bars. My whole family gobbles a 13 X 9 pan in a week.

  206. Kay says:

    Made this once with agave, they turned out beautifully, wonderfully sticky and scrummy and delightful. I made a quadruple batch, they were so tasty.

    Just made a double of a quadruple (octople?) using stevia and water, and I absolutely cannot cut them into bars at all. They’re falling apart, crumbly and dry and awful. I’m going to try whipping them up in the food processor again or with a hand mixer, adding a dab of agave and some more coconut oil. Hopefully they shape up, because I’ve got to get them to a party tomorrow! Yikes!

  207. Janel says:

    I’m not sure if anyone has pointed this out yet, but if you add a few chocolate chips, these taste just like Samoas Girl Scout Cookies!!! YUM!

  208. Sandy says:

    One can never have enough underwear!!!!
    Honestly, its so handy to have a big range so that every dress has an appropriate pair!!!

    The bars look super yummy! :-)

  209. KarenSue says:

    I made these tonight and absolutely love them. I’m in Texas and was able to find unsweetened shredded coconut and extra virgin coconut oil at HEB. I added some almonds to them and they taste like Almond Joy w/o the chocolate. My 13 yr old daughter LOVES your Cake Batter Energy Bars. Such a great substitute for store-bought breakfast bars. Thank you for showing that eating healthy can be yummy! Looking forward to the book!

  210. I’ve only just got round to making these – and wish I had before! I substituted half of the coconut (by weight) with crushed GF cereal flakes because I fancied them crunchy and they’re delicious, thank you :-)

  211. Grace says:

    Yoga pants and spandex!! Haha- I guess because I’m a dancer, but food-wise definitely chocolate, Greek Yogurt, and craft items!!

    oh my goodness, coconut too…that’s definitely up there too

  212. Becky says:

    Made these today and they are absolutely amazing! They are already plenty good but if you dip them in chocolate they tastes exactly like the coconut bars i buy from my health food store for $2.50 each. Exactly the recipe I was looking for to replicate it Thanks

  213. Louise says:

    Could you use a butter instead of the coconut oil? I rarely use oils but do have macadamia butter and margarine.

    Great recipe though, can’t wait to try it out :-)

    1. Diane Falk says:

      Margarine? No!! That’s nasty! Try butter, mixed with olive oil, almost 1/2 and 1/2. I call it BU….and it’s SO much better for you than margarine! I heard once that margarine is one molecule away from plastic….PLEASE don’t eat it!

  214. Marianne Hay says:

    One can never have enough people to love! Thank you for all your great recipes.

  215. Jamie says:

    I made your crack bars for v-day, but mixed through some pink and red sprinkles for flair, and pressed them individually into heart shaped cookie cutters. Because of the oil content, they popped right out and solidified in adorable heart shapes. They were a HUGE hit and I can’t wait to make them again. YUM.

  216. hanna says:

    My mom loves coconut and is always asking me to make coconut cake, but her favorite one takes so long (three days of prep eek!). This seems like a great alternative to have ready for her when she bothers me for it. I was just wondering about the water/stevia substitution for maple or agave. Without the viscosity, does it still come together as well? I really want to try these without the extra sugar, but if the ones with syrup come out better, I might just do those instead. thanks

    hanna lipman

  217. Bj says:

    Just fixed the coconut crack bars, but I just rolled mine into little balls then rolled into some cocoa powder. Yum! Thanks, Katie.

  218. Cherie says:

    Hey Katie!

    Just tried these (amazing!!!) but I had trouble getting them out of the container without semi-ruining their shape! Any suggestions?


    1. Did you freeze them long enough? Make sure your freezer is on a cold enough setting. They should be completely hard before trying to cut.

  219. April says:

    Amazing. I just tried these with maple syrup as the sweetener… beautiful pieces of wonder!

    Thank you : )

  220. Laura says:

    These are so simple that I was suspicious, but I have to admit they are really, really good. although, next time I might have to try them with a later of chocolate.

  221. MrsHollywood says:

    Just had to try these quick and easy treats today! But I have to say, I am totally and utterly shocked that you didn’t add a layer of chocolate on top!! I melted some dark chocolate and coconut oil together and poured on top and then chilled these. The chocolate took them to a whole new level! Love your site. Love your recipes. Keep up the good work!

  222. Laurel says:

    I love these!!! I made them tonight. Next time I’ll put them on parchment paper to get them out. Right now I have what looks like coconut crack crumbles. Wish they had more protein, but as a dessert, they are AWESOME. Crack is right. Addictive.

  223. Renee says:

    I didn’t use a food processer. What I did was heat the water, then stirred in the salt, coconut oil, sweetener, (sweetzfree) and vanilla until the oil and salt melted. I added that to fine coconut and stirred it all together. Worked great.

  224. rosi says:

    I dont like agave or maple. What else can I use for the coconut bars?

  225. Dee says:

    I dont own a food processor has anyone just smooshed it all together? I want to make them but dont want to waste it if I need a processor.

  226. Imogen says:

    How many calories does this have in?

  227. Anonymous says:

    Thank you so much for this!!! My daughter is a natural born vegan and I am always looking for natural recipes the whole family can share. It’s hard to find a dessert recipe that doesn’t call for eggs or flour, I am so happy I found this.

  228. Christy Martin says:

    And where might I find a recipe for those Healthy Magic Squares referenced above? (My husband and I greatly enjoyed these coconut bars!!!)

  229. Matti says:

    Was wondering, re your coconut crack bars, it honey could substitute the agave/maple syrup….etc…?

  230. Kristin says:

    What if you poured melted chocolate over these then refrigerated? It might just be the perfect treat!

  231. Steviej Callender says:

    One can never have enough Tea. :)

  232. Hi Katie! I finally got to make these and the chocolate chip peanut butter (in my case, sunflower seed butter!) balls yesterday! I featured them on my (NEW!) blog in yesterday’s post! Of course, I made sure to let everyone know where and who I got the recipes from with a link to your site and both recipes. I’d love for you to come on over and check it out! Thanks for the delicious healthy desserts!!! :)

  233. Jill says:

    Oh my….sooooo good….coconut crack indeed. I doubled the recipe, added almond meal and coconut butter. Oh, and I halved the sweetener (honey). Thank you for a great recipe.

  234. erin says:

    I love this. We tried and loved it. I posted and linked back to you! THANKS for the great recipe!

  235. Kym Gardnir says:

    I put cranberries in mine and it reminds me of an Australian Christmas desert we had as kids, called ‘White Christmas’. Looking forward to putting something else in for crunch, maybe amaranth or puffed rice, with some crushed up nuts.

  236. Bonnie says:

    I don’t know what I did wrong but mine turned out terribly salty, overly sweet (used maple syrup), and too thin to get out of the pan. I may try warming what I have so they are soft again and mixing it with another cup of coconut and a bit more coconut oil. I love the idea and think they’d be great to have on hand for a healthy snack.

  237. Amanda says:

    I just made these, and holy mother of coconut, they are amazing. I can’t wait to make them for my mom. She and I used to always grab a king-size Mounds bar at the store to share, and these are so much better. I added some dark chocolate chips and raw almonds in when I was processing it, and it turned out muddy-looking but so good. I am eating it out of the dish with a spoon because I am impatient.

  238. Megan says:

    Just made these… can’t stop eating them!!! I’m a chocoholic, and Almond Joy is one of my favorite candy bars, so I added 2 tbsp of cocao nibs and a handful of almonds (I didn’t measure, but I’m sure it was less than 1/4 cup). Tastes soo much like Almond Joy! And so easy!!

  239. Gen says:

    Im absolutely adoring your recipes. Seriously. Thank you SO MUCH for all these, they’re so very very helpful.

  240. Nicole says:

    Hmm..I made these… used Agave…and the agave was WAY to much..YUCK! Next batch I will only use water with stevia packs for sure! It was such a strong aroma of Agave and the taste was so strong I didnt dare even give one to my 6 year old..Yuck! They werent white they were yellow colored from the agave…And I just used 1/4 cup.

    1. Kitty Bea says:

      I used about 3 TBS of maple syrup, and it was perfect. Almost too sweet, just more dessert-y that way. If you like maple flavor, I recommend that instead of the agave. :)

  241. Micah says:

    These were delicious!! My kids scarfed them down! I melted some chocolate chips and poured over the top, and that was wonderful! Next time I’m going to put a layer of almonds before I pour the chocolate on top – added protein and just like a candy bar! Thanks for the recipe!

  242. Sarah says:

    I made these and thought they were DELICIOUS!! Perfect snack to curb cravings. Thank you!

  243. Kitty Bea says:

    Just one to say love this recipe! Just made it today for the first time and as soon as I finished the batch I started making another one to double it because I knew it wouldn’t last long enough. :) I love how it’s raw, so flavorful rich in coconut and maple flavor, and simple.

    1. Kitty Bea says:

      Oops, *want not one! Lame, haha.

  244. Allison says:

    How did you get yours so snowy white? Between the agave & the vanilla they are kind of brownish. Tasty though!

  245. Eleanor Young says:

    my mums allergic to coconut 😛 which meant it was alwwways a treat as a kid, my dad would buy a coconut, we’d sit in the garden, he’d break it open and we’d sit there eating it, always in the garden when my mum was asleep (she worked nights as a nurse :P). and so even now, I treat myself with coconut

  246. Kitty says:

    is the coconut in this recipe fresh or dried shredded?

  247. Andy says:

    As I’m licking the spatula I am thinking oh my god this is crack! then it occurred to me that indeed you put that word in the title!

  248. Kim says:

    Hi Katie! I’m 16-years-old and I was recently diagnosed with celiac disease, I’m also HIGLY allergic to soy, and I’m lactose intolerant. I absolutely love sweets. I honestly think that I think about sweets 24/7. Every since I got diagnosed with celiac and found out about my other allergies, I had to give up the one desert I used to have everyday. Chocolate chip cookie doe ice cream. Anyways, i began craving for sweets more and more. I baked unsuccessful cookies that tasted AWFUL! And my parents couldn’t even swallow. I did a lot of research of what sweets I could eat. THANK GOD I FOUND YOUR BLOG!!

  249. Lulu says:

    Thank you for posting this! I’m on a super restricted eating plan right now… no grains, no sugars (maple syrup allowed) no dairy, no egg. Needless to say, it’s hard to find fun stuff to make (and eat).
    I made these yesterday and added a handful of salted cashews to the food processor….amazing sweet salty squares of pure yumminess:) I’m tempted to try a version with organic unsweetened cocoa melted on top

  250. Julie says:

    These looks yummy.

    Would you please consider taking the word “Crack” out of your title. Some people truly have an issue with addictions and it is not a light matter but offensive to read used in this context. Thanks for your consideration.

  251. Laura says:

    I made a half batch of this (I know, I’m crazy – I had to save some coconut for my green smoothies). Absolutely fabulous! They didn’t make it to my fridge before I ate half of it. Can’t wait to try what is left in bar form tomorrow. Thanks for the delicious recipe!

  252. Shauna Johnstone says:

    This recipe is a gift from God for Father’s day. My husband’s favorite food (well almost) is Coconut!!!

  253. Anonymous says:

    Drizzle melted dark chocolate on the top and it becomes decedent! Soooo good!

  254. Katie says:

    My boyfriend doesn’t like it either, which is so annoying because I love it. I drink the Silk coconut milk, etc. Maybe it is a women thing, I can’t think of any men in my life who like it.

  255. Erin says:

    Is the coconut oil in this recipe melted prior to use? Or is it mixed into batter in its solid form? Thanks!

  256. sheila says:

    I’m making these now :) after I cut them into bite size pieces I’m going to dip them into dark chocolate. ..yummo

  257. Caitlin says:

    Nobody has posted on this in almost a year, and I don’t have time to read all the comments, but just in case: DO NOT mix this by hand! It completely ruins the structural integrity of the bars!
    Delicious, though, amazing! I made these today and since I’m not low-fat (just sugar/carbs) I used the stevia option and coconut milk instead of water. YUUUUUM!

  258. shelby says:

    I made these last night, I couldn’t find any unsweetened coconut so I used sweetened and 1/4c water (no extra sweetener). I think I will keep my eye out for unsweetened coconut though because they did not come out right, they fall right apart. Like other commenters, I also found they only filled about 1/2 – 2/3 of a loaf pan. They taste so good though, a really fresh coconut flavor! (I hate sunscreen tasting coconut things!). I will definitely make again once I find the right coconut..

  259. Nicole says:

    I made these and melted dark chocolate and drizzled on top. First, I was weepy sad that the bars are tiny…so I tripled the batch. Secondly, my bars were ultra crumbly as in, pick it up, feel it crumble’ crumble. Is this normal? I liked that the bars weren’t silly sweet and they were yumm. Just crumbly yum”

    1. Did you use a food processor? And squish down very hard and use virgin coconut oil?

  260. Pat says:

    I have been wanting to come up with a low carb Mound like candy. Cover this in a thin coating of Lindt 85% dark chocolate and Walla! I am so excited. I am eating low carb to control my diabetes and this will sure make it more enjoyable.

  261. Pat says:

    Sorry I didn’t know this was a vegan site I got here through Pinterst following the coconut. hope I didn’t offend by suggesting a non vegan product.

    1. Hey Pat,
      No worries at all! I’m pretty sure that the majority of my readers aren’t vegan! 😉
      But also… I think Lindt dark chocolate actually IS vegan anyway.

  262. Elyse says:

    Help, I can’t find unsweetened coconut!

    1. Melissa says:

      Sprouts, any healthier food store

  263. Paige N. says:

    I made this the other day but could only find sweetened coconut. Instead of using a full 1/4 cup of agave nectar I used about 1/8 cup and watered it down to make 1/4 cup. I also melted chocolate for the top. They taste great but they didn’t really stay together. I was able to find regular unsweetened coconut at the store so I will try again with the unsweetened coconut and hopefully they will come out better. The taste was awesome, just very messy to eat as is! I’m guessing there is something in the coating on the sweetened coconut that prevents it from staying together.

  264. Di says:

    Made these last night, but instead of using syrup or agave, I made a date paste for sweetness. All I can say is that I’m totally in love. Thank you!!!

  265. Cher says:

    Katie, I loved this post!!! Cause I also can never have enough coconut (or makeup, shoes or nail polish…but that’s another story!) I loved your comment about staring at your boyfriend blankly for 5 minutes after he said he didn’t like coconut! My first thought was, “Who in their right mind doesn’t like Coconut?!” Well, I’m off to make these things… they just look too darn good!

  266. Melissa says:

    I made these today!!! I added more coconut and after they cooled drizzled melted dark chocolate over them and sprinkled chopped almonds. It was a homemade almond joy!!!

  267. Armando Glancy says:

    Tammy this a wonderful blog post! It is so great when folks appreciate all that you do.

  268. Diana says:

    Adapted the recipe using a date paste and added lemon zest & the juice from the lemon. Best version yet! Thanks for such a great recipe!

  269. jessica says:

    These sound yummy

    (FYI I dont like chocolate either LOL)

  270. Natski says:

    Love these. I rolled them into small balls instead and then put them into the fridge. They worked out great and are nice small delicious snacks or dessert.

  271. Julie says:

    I agree, it must be a male thing. My husband didn’t like it until I got him to try it different ways. My dad doesn’t like it except caramelized on oatmeal cake. My pap doesn’t like it, my brother doesn’t like it. I love coconut. And these bars are awesome. I didn’t feel like dirtying the food processor so I mixed them by hand, but I couldn’t find unsweetened flaked coconut so I got sweetened and omitted any other sweetener. I also omitted the water, just using the oil, extract, and salt. These bars are fantastic!!

  272. Grace says:

    Can you substitute honey for agave or syrup?

    1. Sorry, I’ve not actually tried.

      1. Grace says:

        Thanks! I may try it and let you know how it comes out!

  273. Wow, these are so delicious! I mixed mine by hand (literally ) and used part butter for the coconut oil (just cuz I love butter), also used honey as that’s what I had on hand. Can hardly wait until they’re chilled! Thanks for a super easy and tasty recipe using coconut oil!

  274. Maggie says:

    Hi Katie,
    Can honey be substituted for the agave in this recipe?


  275. connie says:

    Please put the calories and carb for each recipe. Im true in searching for a recipe I can use healthy coconut oil in. But I need information. thanks

      This information is already listed right in the post.

  276. Catherine says:

    Would coconut butter work as well as coconut oil? I’ve never used the oil but I do have some artisana coconut butter on hand.

    1. It sounds like a good idea, but I’ve not tried it.

  277. Vanessa says:

    Hi Katie!
    I made these the other night and the consistency was perfect! Only thing is that they were much too sweet for my taste. Could it be because I substituted the 1/2 tsp vanilla extract for more maple syrup? (Read that you can use a 1:1 substitute for those 2 ingredients)

    Next make it less sweet…would I just use less maple syrup and replace with water ? :) Thanks for the great recipe!

  278. michelle says:

    can I sub honey for the agave or syrup?

  279. Dolores says:

    Love coconut and this bar are so good.

  280. Candice says:

    I have made these, but shape them into balls or bars, then cover in chocolate! Homemade mounds. They were gone so fast! *My husband actually loves coconut, but hates cake.

  281. I just had to share this recipe on my blog as it is such an amazing snack and so simple too! Will definitely be bringing one of these along with me on my next long run with some almonds and likely a little chocolate drizzled onto it! Seems like a great quick energy fix while moving along! –

  282. Diane says:

    Just made these and I love them! I added a few almonds and a few chocolate chips, yummmmmmmmm!

  283. Angela says:

    I’m making this TONIGHT!!! I think I might use coconut butter instead of coconut oil. Would that be okay?

  284. ReneeAnn says:

    My son and sister hates it too; something about the texture? I think they are smoking crack.

  285. Alexa says:

    Whenever I make these, they end up coming out really thin and small compared to yours, they dont look like a bar at all! What am I doing wrong?

  286. Shawna says:

    I just made these tonight, but used raw honey for the sweetener. They were really good! I also made a second batch (shows how easy they are!) but used 1/4 cup of raw unsalted almond butter and 2 tbsp of raw honey. So yummy! Thanks for sharing :)

  287. TRACK2HEALTH says:

    These are by far my favourite snack to make! Since stumbling across your page a couple of months ago, but freezer has basically not had a day without housing these! I run out, I made more straight away. They are always my go-to snack when I crave something sweet.
    I’ve recently been making them with the 1/4 Cup of water instead of agave/maple etc, and adding some lemon juice in them. They taste just like a sugar filled coconut-vanilla slice from a bakery. Amazing.

    So from myself, and all of my friends who now loving having dessert at my place, THANK YOU KATIE.

    For the rest of you, TRY IT WITH LEMON JUICE. Amaaaazing.

  288. Annie says:

    I’ve looked over the recipe a bunch of times, but I can’t see the part where you add the crack. You know, the crack cocaine? The illegal street drug? The highly addictive (just like cookies rofl!) smokeable substance that has devastated entire communities and put a disproportionate number of socially disenfranchised men and women in prison? Such a cutesy name for these coconut bars! Because they’re so delicious (just like yummy crack cocaine! yumz!) that they’re going to put me into a spiral of addiction and violence, right? But, y’know, healthy. Healthy crack cocaine. Seriously.

  289. Deanna says:

    I can’t thank you enough. I am on a strict diet for health reasons and it’s halloween. This reciepe saved me!

  290. LRitting says:

    Will this work if I leave out the agave/maple syrup? I am in a sugar detox.

  291. Leah says:

    My attempt at this today was too crumbly–even when frozen. I don’t have a food processor, so I thawed the bars and added a 1/2 cup of oat flour. Then made two bars in separate snack size Ziplocs; they were easier to compress that way. Salvaged! :-)

  292. Tara says:

    I tend to make your coconut crack bars for every function I attend where paleo desserts are requested. They are amazing. I’m wondering if you think they would set up ok if I did “scoops” of them instead of pushing them into a pan, cooling and cutting bar shapes. Not too get into too much detail… but they are for a breast cancer fundraiser… figure I could turn little mounds of coconut into, well you know :)

    1. Unofficial CCK Helper says:

      That will work fine :-)

      1. Tara says:

        They came out more than perfect!! A little beet juice dye and pomegranate seeds for the…. Well you know… BIG HIT!!
        Posted them on Instagram if you check your hashtags 😉

  293. Oh my goodness! These look so yummy and I actually have all of the ingredients! Thanks so much!

  294. Jeneiqne says:

    Hello chocolate covered katie ! I’m looking this simple recipe and I think I’m going to make it for a friends birthday . I have a question or more like I need your help . I was thinking of adding a pecan base and drizzle some vegan chocolate chips. Does this sound tasty and achievable ? What are your thoughts . Again thanks and I appreciate your opinion.

  295. Karen says:

    I just made a batch of these delightful little bits of heaven!

  296. sk says:

    Maybe this is a silly question, but please bear with me.. I’m new to baking with coconut. I cannot find any unsweetened coconut in my local grocery store but I do have some coconut flour on hand and some sweetened coconut. What would be the better option? To use the coconut flour (which is just finely ground unsweetened coconut, correct?) or would i need to um, wash and dry the sweetened coconut? ?

  297. katrina says:

    Yumm!! These are so good!!! I didn’t have agave or maple syrup so I used honey instead!! delicious!!

  298. Cara says:

    Found these searching for something to cut my sweet craving. They’re currently chilling in the freezer (and i added some chocolate chips on top — oh yeahh) but i literally wanted to lick the blade as i was cleaning..SO GOOD. i disagree about the serving sizes, i expect to have 8 servings of coconut bar “bites.” It’s just that our perception of serving “sizes” is so skewed nowadays that anything smaller than a deck of cards is seen as too tiny! Nope, perfect size to enjoy a clean treat and kill a sweet craving at the same time :-)

  299. Janessa says:

    Sounds amazing! i want to add chocolate!

  300. Gunnar Fox says:

    Grass-fed butter = good, healthy, yum.


  301. Andreae says:

    These do look delicious, but PLEASE would everybody stop using the word “crack” in their recipe names unless they have actually lived through the staggering, desperate pain of crack cocaine addiction. Otherwise you’re just being insensitive and offensive. Please read this if you don’t get what I’m trying to say here.

  302. Katrina says:

    I just tried it hand-mixed because I don’t have a food processor *sadface* and it still turned out delicious! Really fixes my sweet craving :)

  303. Erin says:

    So delicious!!! I’m hoping I’m not the only one who the recipe turned out to only make one serving for…

  304. Christine says:

    Hi. I discovered your site/blog today and was so excited to make your sweet potato fries. They tasted good but were far from crispy! I also tried your coconut crack bars and you said you use a 5 x 7 pan? how thick are they? I used a 5 x 7 and only filled about 1/3 of the way and these things are pretty thin. Your picture make them look so deep, I’m wondering if I’m missing something in your recipes or if there are some variables that is making things not come out right?

  305. T. Smith says:

    “Can be stored in the fridge or freezer, for at least a few weeks.” BWAH-ha-ha!! You crack me up! A few weeks??? Not in this house…. my boyfriend is a coconut FANATIC. These *might* last through a whole 2 days, but would be lucky to see the end of the third. And I’ll be lucky if I get more than 2 pieces.

  306. Cat says:

    These are so simple and delicious! Kid approved, too!

  307. sonya says:

    niether does my fiance’….lol. but I was wondering, have you ever tried covering these with chocolate….seems perfect to me 😛 yummmmmm!

  308. Brenda says:

    Oh my goodness! I just made these and they are SO good!! Thank you for sharing!

  309. Donna Upchurch says:

    OMG!!! I can’t wait to try these! I am CRAZY for anything coconut!!!!

  310. camille says:

    my dad hates coconut too… we always say – more for us!

    Anyways, Just tried these and in case anyone was like me and was out of maple syrup – I just subbed half of the amount of syrup for honey. So, 1/8 cup of honey, instead of the 1/4 cup of sweetener :) YUM!

  311. Pam says:

    I just made these with a little twist :) I pressed the mix into heart shaped silicon molds and popped them in the fridge. When they get out some of them will receive a dip in homemade magic shell for a healthier moundesque candy treat! Thank you for this recipe it is wonderful!! :)

  312. Tina says:

    Thank you !!!!!!! Wicked awesome have not had my favourite chocolate bar in soooo long drizzled these in chocolate no compare :)

  313. Crystil says:

    I have made these a few times now and absolutely LOVE them! I have a question for you, though…do you think I could sub coconut nectar for the agave?

  314. Annie says:

    Gimme gimme gimme!!! This looks DELISH and I will be making it this week. Thanks, Katie!

  315. Elizabeth says:

    Where do you buy unsweetened shredded coconut? I hate shredding by hand!

  316. Sam Drogosch says:

    Can you substitute honey for the agave?

  317. Carole says:

    Wow. Soooo addictive…I now understand the crack reference 😉

  318. Jóhanna says:

    Why would coconut be a female thing if so many men like coconuts (e.g. all the comments below that say so)? My uncle goes crazy for coconut, and I like it too. Even though you are a girl and like coconut, and your boyfriend hates it, it’s not the rule, and it’s kind of stupid to think so! Liking coconut is not a general rule and you cannot make general assumptions about people who like coconuts and whom don’t… Do not judge me by my taste in coconut, or my uncle’s taste, it does not make us feminine! (please do not miss the sarcasm…)

  319. Natasha says:

    So tasty!
    I drizzled some melted semi-sweet chocolate over the top, followed by a sprinkle of chopped almonds and I could have SWORN it was an Almond Joy. Love it!
    Definitely going to play with this recipe some more 😀

  320. Jen says:

    What makes me giggle is that this makes 6-8 bars and can be stored for “at least a few weeks.” Right. Like I’m going to let anything this good last that long.

  321. Fiona says:

    Have you tried using coconut sugar? What does everyone think of that?

  322. Gina says:

    Just a note– I tried making these with my Kitchen Aid instead of the food processor and they turned out great! Just in case you don’t feel like breaking out the food processor.

  323. Belinda says:

    These look great! What would be your suggestion if I were to use xylitol as the sweetener? Should I use water with it? The 1/4 cup?

    Thanks (:

  324. Kim says:

    Thanks for the recipe! Just warning – try to print it & you waste 93 pages of paper – ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

    1. Unofficial CCK Helper says:

      To print, highlight just the recipe itself, then right-click and hit “Copy.” They open a new Word document and right-click “Paste.” You can name this document, save it in a file of CCK Recipes, and print it easily from that point on.

  325. Debbie says:

    Hi. All of the recipes look great. I am looking for things that I can fix my diabetic mom. Some of your recipes I think I can substitute some items and they will have less carbs and sugar. Keep posting. I love all the new ideas.

  326. Kelly Liang says:

    would honey work in place of agave?

    1. Unofficial CCK Helper` says:


  327. Maya says:

    Hi! Looks really good! Can you use this receipe to make bounties? If not, could you please make one? :)

  328. Joanna says:

    Can you use a blender instead of a food processor??

  329. Fiona says:

    I can see why these are called Coconut Crack Bars. What with being so easy to make and having such a simple and delicious flavor, I could see myself getting as addicted to these as crack! I used two tablespoons local raw honey, two tablespoons water, and one packet of stevia, leaving everything else the same. In love!! I could see myself adding more vanilla or maybe omitting the vanilla and adding lemon extract. Such a great and easy recipe! Thank you!

  330. maria says:

    OMG. This sounds amazing!

    I’ve been craving coconut the last few days so I’m totally going to make this. I might add some vegan vanilla protein with extra stevia for some sweetness…especially because I rather not consume sugar. Your recipes are amazing, thank you!

  331. Petra says:

    Greetings from Germany :)
    Nice recipe! Tried it out once like that and today I added blueberries :)
    I’m looking forward to the result 😀

  332. Diane Falk says:

    One can NEVER have enough BOOKS!! They do things like hold recipes like this one, or take you away to another time, another place, another world. xxoox

  333. Angie says:

    I added pure almond extract to these and they were amazing!

  334. BrandyB says:

    Found these bars on Pinterest and they look absolutely Heavenly – especially for so few ingredients (that I have on hand except enough shredded coconut)! Thank you!

  335. Laura says:

    Katie, these were amazing! So quick and easy! I will definitely be making these often, thank you for sharing your recipe!

  336. Richard says:

    Ladies, sorry to burst the theory of “men don’t like coconut”, but I have to. I very much enjoy all things coconut, with the exception of coconut water. Meh…

    Anyway, I did make these are they are good. However I had to use my kitchen skills because the coconut ratio was low. Is it supposed to be PACKED COCONUT? Because it’s far too moist for loosely poured coconut. I also added 2 tsp of coconut flour to dry them out just a bit. Also, if these make 6-8 bars, then the portion is for small children or dwarfs, because these are not man sized. I could eat this recipe amount in one easy sitting. Either way it’s good. Thanks!

  337. Heidi says:

    These REALLY hit the spot for a sweet craving! Thank you for the recipe! I started making the recipe using 1/2 the ingredients and messed up on the coconut oil (too much) so I added a little raw oatmeal to thicken a little and it was still delicious!!! Thank you! :)

  338. sarah says:

    Have you ever tried doubling or tripling the recipe to get a larger batch?? I have a teenage boy that LOVES coconut and he would polish these off in the blink of an eye.

  339. Sarah Allen says:

    Paper! I love to scrapbook

  340. Shirley says:

    I’ve been going Paleo for 6 days now and while it has taken some getting use to and my kitchen looks like a fruit & veg stall I am rather enjoying it. I do like sweet & savoury food so I was glad to find this Coconut Crack Bars & made a double batch 1 as instructed & the second with some Cacao Powder. I ended up putting them both in the freezer for 1 hour OMG I am a happy bunny. They are super tasty and just the right sweetness. Next batch I will use a Ice cube tray for portion control.
    Thank you for sharing

  341. Cathy says:

    So I needed my child to eat coconut shreds, as part of a natural remedy we are trying. (Boys, dirt, barefeet – I’m sure other moms of boys have a clue what I’m talking about).
    Tried this recipe, except I subbed butter instead of the oil (Is it OK to say that on this site?). He liked it! I am so grateful. Thank you Katie. 😉

  342. Michele says:

    Oh my goodness!! These sound amazing and I can’t wait to make them!! (My hubby likes coconut though… maybe not as much as me, but he does like it!! 😉 ) Thanks for the recipe… looks pretty easy, too!

  343. Tania says:

    I made a triple batch and everyone went crazy over them. Instead of stevia, I used 2/3 tbsp. PureLo Lo Han Sweetener (made from monk fruit) per batch. I also used seeds from one inch of organic vanilla bean per batch instead of vanilla extract. These are so filling that I made fingers instead of bars and I topped them with cocoa-dusted almonds. Thank you very much for this simple recipe!

  344. Casey cuneo says:

    What are the nutritional facts on this? Looks delicious!

  345. Tanai says:

    I love these! I wouldn’t recommend using maple syrup though as there is 53 grams of sugar in 1/4 cup. I think I’ll try Stevia next time.

  346. Charlsey says:

    Great simple recipe :) I made them and added about an 1/8th of a cup of enjoy life chocolate chips and it made the perfect chocolate lovers dessert thats semi guilt free :)

  347. Betty says:

    These look divine! I am thinking they would be especially good dipped in dark chocolate! I can’t wait to try them!

  348. Tessa says:

    Oh wow, these are soooooo good!! Love it!!

  349. Amadna says:

    I used your coconut crack bars recipe as the crust for a pie, I topped it with choc

  350. Carmelita says:

    Do you use fresh coconuts for this recipe, or dried ones?

    1. Unofficial CCK Helper says:

      You use shredded coconut. It comes in a package. Do a google image search to see what it looks like, and hopefully that will help.

      1. Carmelita says:

        Cheers! Will definitely try this when I get the time! Thanks for sharing :)

  351. Vanessa says:

    These are so good. I sprinkled almonds and chocolate chips on them and ate them straight out of the freezer. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

  352. Tamzie F says:

    Hello Katie,
    I tried your coconut crack bars and dipped them in chocolate (homemade Bounty!) Healthier, quicker and much better a recipe than one i used to use that had way too much sugar and margarine. I actually was trying to make a coconut spread but it wasn’t working . Will follow you version more accurately next time but it was pretty much what in on your ingredients list!
    thanks for sharing
    Tamzie F.
    Thanks, Will buy you book for sure!

  353. Tracey says:

    I haven’t actually tried the original recipe, but put a half cup of frozen cherries in my first batch, and it didn’t even make it to the fridge! So yummy! Have just made the cherry version again for guests coming tomorrow, so hopefully they like them as much as I do!

    1. That sounds fantastic, and I think we were on the same wavelength this week, because I just tried a version with strawberries. I will have to try your version as well!

  354. Christine says:

    I just made these along with some homemade caramel sauce from feelgreatin8(with added unsweetened coconut flakes I had leftover) and it made a great topping.

  355. Allie says:

    FANTASTIC!!! ***** Five Stars!!! These bars are super quick and easy to make. Pretty sweet though, so I halved the syrup amount. I also have topped these with EnjoyLife mini chocolate chips, or drizzled melted chocolate. My 3 little ones love these too. This is my new go-to recipe to bring places. Next time I’m going to sub a local raw honey for syrup/agave. Thanks for sharing this recipe:)

  356. Stacey says:

    I was looking for sugar free recipes…been off white sugar a month. I made these this evening & ate several spoonfuls before I put them in refrigerator :) Loved ’em!! Thanks for a great recipe!

  357. Natasha Piccini says:

    These are amazing! Made them several times now and always need to make double or quadruple the recipe. This time, I added about 1/4 cup boiled spinach to the liquids of a quadruple batch and blended before adding the coconut to make a lovely green for St. Patrick’s Day – don’t worry you can’t taste the spinach even a bit and it makes it extra nutritious and fun. Wish I could share a picture so you could see how beautiful it turned out. Thanks for this incredible and easy recipe! It will be our go-to treat for many years to come I’m sure! Great substitute for Rice Krispies squares.

  358. Cortnee Cockrell says:

    These taste great right out of the food processor, my dear Katie the only issue I have with this recipe is that there is so little of it…seriously it doesn’t even fill up a bread pan bottom. I had to make 2 batches to even fill up a tiny rectangle Tupperware container…with that said it’s easy enough to double, triple, quadruple the recipe to make enough for someone other than you, that is if you feel like sharing them! LOL Thank you for the recipe. Oh and it’s me that has had to come around to coconut the husband LOVES it!

  359. Marta Bechtel says:

    Just wanted to thank you for this recipe…its amazing. Just tried a batch adding a bit of lime zest

  360. Heidi says:

    Omg!! Just made these, I don’t even know how you wait for them to set, I can’t stop licking the spoon!! Delish, perfect something sweet!!

  361. Marta Bechtel says:

    love this recipe…. another variation.. raw cacao powder and a small amount of ground coffee….so good

  362. Carly says:

    One can never have enough Skinny Pop POPCORN! And Mascara. Lashes for miles! :-)

  363. Heather says:

    I just made theses in my Kitchen Aid Mixer with honey and chocolate chips that are soy and dairy free. I can’t wait to try them!

  364. Hilda Hurtel says:

    Love how you put ww points in nutrition facts.

  365. Melissa says:

    I made these last night, subbing honey for syrup. They were a little dry and didn’t hold too well together. What ingredient could I add more of to help? Hope someone is still active on here.

    1. Unofficial CCK Helper says:

      It sounds like your coconut was probably extra dry (some of the fat had seeped out), which can sometimes happen and is the same reason making homemade coconut butter doesn’t work for some people. Just add a little extra coconut oil next time. It won’t really even add calories, as the natural oil that should be in dried coconut just needs to be replaced.

  366. Melissa says:

    I made these last night, I didn’t have a food processor so I used some extra coconut oil and coconut flour and hoped they’d stick together. I was craving those bounty candy bars, so after i cut them up (and popped them back in the fridge to harden more), I dipped them in chocolate. Amazing! I think they would have been better in a processor, some of them fell apart, so I just slapped some more chocolate on and stuck them back together.

    My bf doesn’t like coconut either! Weird…

  367. Anup says:

    this is so easy!..another softer alternative is mixing dessicated coconut, condensed milk, bit of icing sugar and spice and refrigerating it before eating..tastes yup!

  368. Leon Vilner says:

    Is maple syrup paleo?

  369. Roberta says:

    How big do I cut the bars to make a 100 calorie serving?

  370. Leah Bonebrake says:

    This looks fantastic! If you put almonds on top and drizzle with dark chocolate you will have Almond Joys

  371. Diana says:

    Has anyone tried this recipe with sweetened shredded coconut? I am having a hard time finding unsweetened shredded coconut at a reasonable price, and I already have sweetened shredded coconut on hand. My apologies if I missed a discussion about this in the comments!

    1. Teryl W says:

      I used sweetened shreds in mine, and then skipped the sweetener from the recipe. Turned out perfect!

  372. Kelly says:

    I just read the comment below that the oil should be melted first. Mine oil was soft, as its June, but it was semi-solid. (I wish it expressed it should be melted in the ingredient list!) Do you figure that’s why it won’t stay together when cut after freezing for 45 mins? The flavour is AMAZING though, I threw a few chocolate chips in, it definitely reminds me of Mounds or a Bounty bar 😀 it’s in the fridge, hopefully it will set eventually.

  373. Kimberly Carlson says:

    I think I may have a new favorite go to for a quick easy sweet treat. I added softened baking chocolate and the flavor was so good I’m going to have a hard time eating these in moderation. I love Mounds bars but am avoiding unhealthy snacks and this came so close to the taste. Almond Joy lovers could add chopped almonds to this and I think they’d become addicted too.

  374. Teryl W says:

    I just made the coconut bars with sweetened shreds, vanilla, salt and room temp coconut oil as binder. Then I pressed them into square silicone chocolate molds and put them in the fridge. Makes a nice sweet treat that’s healthy compared to most! (I think I might add chocolates next time!)

  375. Darlene says:

    Really love you stuff!! Can’t wait to give it a go.

  376. Patty says:

    Love the recipe! Gonna try it soon You once dated a man who doesn’t like chocolate, I Married one who could care less about chocolate! ! You know what that means Right? More for MEEEE! LOL

  377. Patty says:

    I can never have enough Purses!!

  378. Tasha says:

    I just thought you should know you are going to be my 18 year old sons hero. He bought a coconut bar at the health food store yesterday and gave me one bite. Then he said I had to recreate it for him! I think this is recipe is pretty much what we are looking for! I guess that makes you my hero too! 😉

    Thanks for posting the recipe. I will have to try it on my next day off.

  379. Andrea says:

    I don’t think the proportions work. I had to add another 1/2 c of coconut because it was a syrupy mess. With the additional coconut, it made a fairly flat 5×7″ block.

  380. I dunno. A wicked quick, real food dessert might not be the safest thing for my tummy. Or my willpower. I included this in my Christmas in July roundup.

  381. Suzanne says:

    Katie-Your recipes look absolutely decadent!! My only question is-are any of them Gluten Free? I would love to make the coconut crack cookie bars, but they MUST be gluten free. I’m fairly new to this gluten free style of life, and I still have MUCH to learn about deciphering recipes as to whether they are gluten free or not. Thanks! Suzanne

    1. Unofficial CCK Helper says:

      Many are! Here is a link to all of the recipes that can be gf if you use the gf options.

  382. AJ says:

    Could honey be used instead of Agave?

    1. Unofficial CCK Helper says:


  383. Tracy says:

    Can you tell me what the equivelant would be of truvia sugar please

  384. Shannon says:

    OMG! I just made these and they are heavenly!!! Thank you :). I added 3 tablespoons of carob powder and the are amazing! Super easy and relish.

  385. Nancy says:

    Wonderful recipes, but I wondered why the nutritional info is not on the same page as the recipes?

  386. Lia says:

    Love the recipe and use it often. Thank you. And I “crack” is a terrible… not cute or funny name. “Crack” refers (like it or not) to crystal-meth which wrecks lives and kills many.

  387. Paula says:

    I made these but did not know how long to process them so I did it until it was well combined. I wanted to put them into an 8″ square pan but it did not even cover the bottom. They did not look at all like the picture. How long did you process them? What did I do wrong?

    1. Unofficial CCK Helper says:

      Process them until they are completely sticky and easily able to smash into the bottom of a pan. So probably longer than you did. If you wanted to do an 8×8 pan, I’d suggest doubling or tripling the recipe.

  388. Kristen says:

    Coconut is my favorite flavor. I love this recipe. Sometimes I have to hid them from myself or I will keep eating. So good. :)



  389. Phylis says:

    Just made these, love how fast and simple. I added 2 tbsp peanut butter and chocolate chips – love it. Next time I’m doubling!



  390. Dawn says:

    I am only able to find sweetened shredded coconut at my local grocery store. If I use this, how much would you suggest I change the agave about to?

  391. Kay says:

    I like your style.

  392. wendy says:

    I haven’t tried this recipe yet, but any no – bake bars that are healthy and few ingredients to-boot is a 5 star for me and if I like it “bonus”!



  393. April says:

    I added unsweetened cocoa powder to this instead of the chocolate chips and it was soooo delicious!



  394. Shazia says:

    I will definitely try this, seems like an easy and delicious one!

  395. Elizabeth Loderup says:

    These are wonderful! I added a drop of lime essential oil!! YUM

    Just made these and they are the most amazing thing ever! Dangerous to make alone because I would seriously eat the whole batch at once.

    These are great. You need a food processor, though. I tried just mixing them, but the ingredients kept separating. Total yum. I used a Chinese takeout container to press them into. Worked nicely and provides storage as well.
