3-4 Tbsp coconut oil
1/4 cup organic cocoa
1/2 cups ground nuts (macadamia, almonds, hazelnuts)
3/4 cups dried unsweetened shredded coconut (I like to toast in oven first)
1 Tbsp honey (optional - I use dates as well)
In a microwave, melt coconut oil.
Add cocoa, nuts and shredded coconuts and mix well.
Form into a square by dumping into a small baking sheet and spread to about a 1/4" thickness.
Refrigerate or freeze until hard.
Break off into desired pieces.
