If you love the duo of chocolate and coconut as much as we do (I mean, we even came up with a Coco Cacao gr8nola flav ;), then these Raw Vegan Coconut Mounds Bars are your JAM.

We whipped up a healthier version of the classic Mounds chocolate bar using only clean ingredients, including energizing superfoods maca powder, cacao powder and coconut oil. A creamy layer of sweet coconut filling is sandwiched between a chewy gr8nola crust and a melt-in-your-mouth chocolate layer, and this combo is one for the books! This no-bake, plant-based recipe is free of dairy, soy and eggs, and is light enough to be enjoyed as a snack, dessert or even breakfast.
