Dark Chocolate Crunch Bars


Sometimes you just need to have some chocolate, a little something sweet to make you feel better or just to sedate your sweet tooth. Now you can have that chocolate and eat it too, and all in 5 minutes!


1/4 cup rice crispies (brown or white, or gf) (30g)

1/2 cup cocoa powder (50g)

1/4 cup virgin coconut oil (60g)

Sweetener to taste (date paste, sugar, pure maple syrup)

tiny dash salt (makes the flavor pop)


  1. Combine coconut oil and sweetener.
  2. Stir, then add cocoa powder and rice crispies (If needed, add 3 tbsp water or milk of choice, only if using stevia.).
  3. Stir until it gets thick.
  4. Pour into any flat container (or candy molds, or smush between layers of wax paper or in ziploc bags). Freeze until solid, and store in the freezer.

(Note: if you can’t eat [or can’t find] coconut oil, you could always just melt chocolate chips, mix with rice crispies, and freeze for super-quick homemade chocolate bars sans any coconut whatsoever. You can also try to substitute granulated sugar or stevia for the sweetener.)
