    Chocolate Hazelnut Bars with Coconut Flour

    Chocolate Hazelnut Bars with Coconut Flour

    Chocolate Hazelnut Bars with Coconut Flour are rich, fudgey & made with the most simple ingredients.Chocolate Hazelnut Bars with Coconut Flour

    I’m not sure if I have actually ever told you all about my nut butter collection. Currently I have 16 jars of various nut butters (nope, not exaggerating) in my pantry and I wouldn’t have it any other way. There isn’t one duplicate flavor and each of them are used for various recipes like oatmeal, cookies, brownies, spooning, etc.

    The only downside to having so many is that they eventually expire and time is of the freaking essence when it comes to using them up at times. The other day I was looking at my jar of Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut Butter and saw it was going to expire within the next two weeks. Needless to stay I have been spreading that nut butter on absolutely everything. There is nothing I hate more than wasting food so I was not about to let the rest of that go to waste.

    That’s where these Chocolate Hazelnut Bars with Coconut Flour come in. I honestly can’t think of a better name for this and as I mentioned here, naming recipes all the time is seriously a pain in the tush. I want to give it to you straight and not just make these weird names up to describe everything I am making.

    The best part about these Chocolate Hazelnut Bars with Coconut Flour is that you need less than 10 ingredients to make them. They are also dairy free, gluten free and paleo friendly.chocolatehazelnutbarschocolatehazelnutbars2

    Let’s go through what exactly you need to make these:

    Coconut flour

    Coconut oil

    Coconut milk

    Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut Butter

    Eggs

    Maple syrup (or honey)

    Baking powder

    Vanilla extract

    Mini dark chocolate chips

    And that is seriously it. You can also sub whatever nut butter you like for them and I’m sure they would turn out amazing. Coming from baking experience with nut butters, I do recommend creamier nut butters like peanut or cashew over almond as it’ll turn out less grainy.chocolatehazelnutbars1

        Hi Lisa. Thank you! Unfortunately I don’t know what those measurements are in grams but I highly recommend typing “what is 1/2 in grams” into Google. It should help! xx

          I just made this recipe today. I made a few adjustments, and they turned out great.
          – I used honey instead of maple syrup and almond milk instead of coconut milk.
          – I’m running low on Nutella, so I used 1/2 Nutella, 1/2 peanut butter.

          Many coconut flour desserts I’ve tried turn out dilapidated, but these bars were super pretty and super tasty. I love this recipe!
