The recipe can either be made with a liquid sweetener (maple syrup, agave, etc.) or with stevia if you need a low carb keto version.

To make the bars, press 2/3 of the coconut mixture into a parchment-lined pan, spread the chocolate fudge over top, then sprinkle on the remaining coconut and refrigerate until firm.

No Bake Chocolate Coconut Fudge Bars

These delicious coconut fudge bars are always a huge crowd pleaser!
5/5 (11)
Total Time 5 minutes
Yield 20 – 25 bars


  • 3 cups shredded unsweetened coconut (240g)
  • 1/4 cup sweetener (see note below)
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil or coconut butter (96g)
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cup chocolate chips or sugar free chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup almond butter, or additional chips or coconut oil/butter


  • You can either use 1/4 cup liquid sweetener (agave, honey, pure maple syrup) OR stevia for the equivalent sweetness and add 1/4 cup additional coconut oil to make up the liquid difference.
    Line an 8×8 pan with parchment going up the sides. Combine first 5 ingredients – I like to blend in a food processor, but it can be done by hand. (If skipping the food processor, you can increase coconut oil to 2/3 cup to ensure they aren’t crumbly. However, the bars in the photos were mixed by hand without the extra oil and still held their shape enough to cut. So it’s up to you!) Spread about 2/3 of the mixture into the pan. Press down really well. Carefully melt the chocolate, stir in almond butter if using, and spread over top of the coconut. Sprinkle remaining coconut on top, press down, and refrigerate 1 hour or until firm. On cool days or for indoor parties, the bars are fine to leave out. Store leftovers in the fridge or freezer.

    These look delicious! I can’t wait to make them! I have a question about coconut (which I love)— is the amount of saturated fat in it okay? Is it still healthy?

    • Julie says

      I think it depends on who you ask. In Hawaii they eat a lot of coconut products, and it’s considered healthy by keto and paleo advocates. Thai cuisine often uses it and have for centuries. Vegans eat a lot of coconut products and it can raise our HDL, which is your good cholesterol. A lot of people say the saturated fat is not processed the same way as animal saturated fat. But still it is high in calories so also probably not the miracle food a lot of people say it is. I eat it in moderation and have healthy blood work. If you are worried then asking a doctor if it’s good for you personally could be a good idea. Hope that advice from a non medical professional is helpful!

    These look so amazing! I don’t really like cold oatmeal so I didn’t bookmark the oatmeal version, but these I am excited to try!

  3. Sue Medeiros says

    Oh my YUM! I mad these yesterday and they are incredible. I can’t wait to share with friends and family. So fudgy and chocolatey! You nailed it again!

  4. Cassie Thuvan Tran says

    I LOVE that this recipe is like an inside out almond joy! So creative–the coconut and chocolate combination is glorious. I could eat so many of these bars all day long, it’s not even funny 😉

  5. Rosamonde Simone @ KetoBotyToneAvis says

    Your recipe of ‘no-bake-keto-coconut-fudge-bars’ looks ver tasty and delicious I love it. Thank you for sharing it.

  6. Sue Medeiros says

    I made these for a picnic and a birthday party that I was attending. I got so many compliments and requests for the recipe. This is so addicting and delicious! You have out done yourself!

  7. Caye says

    Confused about “1/4 cup liquid sweetener (agave, honey, pure maple syrup) OR stevia for the equivalent sweetness” – as written that appears to mean either 1/4 liquid sweetener or 1/4 cup stevia. That sounds like a lot of stevia. If it’s not 1/4 cup, then how do I determine how much stevia is needed for an “equivalent sweetness” to 1/4 cup of the liquid sweeteners? Thank you.

  8. Tracey sandmeyer says

    SO SO good!!! Thank you for providing amazing dessert ideas that my body can tolerate and feel good about!

    • Jason Sanford says

      When we tried these with sweetened coconut, they were crumbly. But still delicious as long as you don’t mind they don’t hold together as well!

  9. Lisa says

    I made these yesterday and brought to share with coworkers. Everyone loved them, they are so good. Especially love they are not loaded with carbs and sugar. I used Lily’s dark chocolate chips and they were perfect. It was 90 degrees here so was really great not to have to turn the oven on. Definitely will be making these again.

  10. Lori says

    Does the nutrition information account for regular sweetner (honey, agave, maple syrup) or does the nutrition information not take Stevia or Swerve into consideration?
    (needing net carb info, as I am Keto).

  11. Pamela says

    I want to use Swerve; am I using the granular or powdered version in place of the liquid sweetener and how much?

  12. Amanda says

    Could I use xylitol granular sweetener in place of the 1/4 cup liquid sweetener? If so do I have to add any liquid to the xylitol granular?
    Thanks!! 🙂
