Coconut Bounty BitesNo-cook, 6 ingredients vegan coconut bounty bites that are super rich in taste and texture.

The crunchy chocolate layer encapsulates the soft and sweet coconut filling – just like the bounty bites you find in stores.

You can of course give them the shape of ‘bars’. But I found that rolling them into balls is so much easier and it holds that firm shape.

Let’s go!

    Could I use coconut milk (or maybe the solid part on top of the can) instead of coconut milk?

      Hi, Daira. Yes you absolutely can. In fact, that would be even better. It gives a richer taste to the bites. 🙂

  3. Looks really nice I will have to try it sometime. Can I used honey instead of sugar trying to stay away from sugar.

  4. Just this 1st recipe of coconut balls has excited me. I am sure to enjoy this journey on veganuary
