These Keto chocolate coconut bars will remind you of the famous Bounty bars! A perfect low carb chocolate bar treat that is also dairy free!
Do you crave a Keto chocolate coconut bar that reminds you of Bounty Bars?
I have always been crazy about the combination of chocolate and coconut so it was only a matter of time before I made a Keto version of a Chocolate Coconut Bar.
Did I mention this keto chocolate coconut square is a no bake recipe!?
My kids dubbed them Cocoa Keeto Squares and I kind of liked the name so I kept it!
These bars are perfect for a low carb or a Keto diet when you need something sweet and will eat the entire pantry. Plus this is a chocolate fat bomb that is dairy free.
These are an easy no bake chocolate coconut fat bomb!
What I especially like is that it is so easy to make them into squares or bars or even Valentine hearts! You just press them into whatever mold you want!
If you absolutely love those cute little single bar molds I found them here. They are so inexpensive and I love the colors!
They also have the heart shaped molds so that you can make these keto chocolate coconut bars into Valentine treats for that special someone!
No matter what shape they are, these low carb desserts are a yummy piece of low carb Chocolate Coconut heaven!
How to make Low Carb Chocolate Coconut Bars
You will need these tools:
Food Processor (or a blender but having done it with both, go with the Food Processor if you have it!)
Silicone Baking Molds. When doing chocolate and candies, I can’t say enough about using silicone trays and pans. No more trying to scrape something out.
You can even turn your pan inside out to gently push out your creations! I LOVE that!
I used heart shaped molds to make the chocolate coconut bars below for Valentine’s Day!
Ingredients needed for Keto Chocolate Coconut Bars
(Printable recipe card is below)
Bottom Coconut layer:
- 2 cups shredded unsweetened coconut
- 1/3 – 1/2 Cup Virgin Coconut Oil, melted
- 1/4 cup of granulated erythritol like So Nourished sweetener
Chocolate topping layer:
- 3 squares Baker’s Unsweetened Chocolate (3 ounces chocolate)

Tips and Hacks for the keto Chocolate Coconut bar recipe
- As you can see from the images, this recipe is very forgiving. You can press it into any size pan
- When I first put this recipe on the blog, I could not buy sugar free chocolate chips. I recently made these chocolate coconut fat bombs using Lily’s chocolate chips which are sweetened with stevia and they were great!
- If you don’t have a food processor try doing this: Use your blender to get the coconut into a more powdery form. Just process 1/2 cup at a time. Then mix it into a bowl with the coconut oil and sweetener. Add an extra tbsp or more coconut oil if necessary, you want it to hold together like a ball of dough.

I can NOT get my coconut mix to stay together? It’s really crumbly … is that normal? Hopefully the chocolate helps …
Did you melt the coconut oil? I would add a bit more melted oil until it sticks together. If it’s crumbly now, it will likely stay crumbly.
These were awesome , but I found my eye measuring was a bit off?- the coconut layer was way too sweet( too much swerve) and the chocolate layer not sweet enough( i used unsweetened bakers chocolate), so instead of adding more ingredients, i combined them and froze….reminds me of those toasted coconut chocolates in a valentines day box! Very good but, Im thinking maybe I should try toasting the coconut first!? Not sure if flavor would be noticeably different or better, but sounded good, right?! My fav candy is almond joy- im throwing a toasted almond in middle next time too! Thanks for recipe! Was buggin’ out for a good keto friendly chocolate recipe!
oh yeah, the toasted almond addition sounds like a very good idea! Unsweetened Bakers is not very good, lol! The last time I made them I used Lily’s stevia chocolate chips, now that was great! The coconut is already naturally sweet, so I find it doesn’t need a lot of sweetener. Thanks for letting me know how you made out with the recipe, I’m always amazed at all the ideas my readers come up with!
Was craving something delicious but low on time and no desire to shop. So I switched the chocolate layer with chocolate powder in the mix. Then I froze them in ice cube trays with a silicone bottom. And boom. Perfect. Craving under control.
Next time I will do chocolate layer…
It’s that old saying ‘Necessity is the mother of invention’! Well done!
My blender wouldn’t even attempt to blend the coconut mixture. Then tried my immersion blender…stop wouldn’t budge so just mixed..packed in a loaf pan topped with almonds and chocolate mixture and in the freezer. Hope it works at least a little bit
These are great!
Thanks so much!
Just make these. I must have done something terribly wrong with the chocolate b/c it is SOOOOO sour and bitter. I got liquid stevia and mine didn’t have a “dropper” so I just squirted some in. Too sour. Then more. Still too sour. Then I used my powdered Stevia and they the chocolate was still horribly bitter. I gave up and stuck them in the freezer. I will just have to power through the taste when I eat them! But the coconut part was super tasty!
Oh darn, I wonder why? Is it possible it was a bad batch of chocolate? Did you use the unsweetened or bittersweet or semisweet? They all taste quite different and the unsweetened definitely needs more sweetener if you are not used to it. Glad the coconut part was good!
I made these for an Easter treat instead of a chocolate bunny. The only addition I made was after pouring on the chocolate, I let it set in the freezer for about 3 minutes and the sprinkled the top with some unground sea salt. Definitely took this to another level! So good!
Oh my goodness, what a great tweak! Thanks for sharing that!
I was wondering if you can use coconut flakes instead of shredded?
I think it likely could work, I just have never tried it. If you try hope you will come back and let us know how it turned out.
I used unsweetened coconut flakes since its only 2 carbs per 1/4 cup, I put it in my ninja chopper, with a little less than 1/4 cup coconut oil, and 3 tablespoons of water, it gave a very moisturized texture since my coconut flakes were really dry.
In the end stir together whatever sweetener you would like. I made a big batch and didn’t add anything to it, just left it in the fridge for whenever I need to bake something with it.
Thanks for sharing that! :-)
Hi! Nobody has asked about the carbs. How many carbs in each coconut bar?
3 net carbs per piece but of course this will vary when people vary the recipe. Which is why I’m always hesitant to supply the nutritional data. Hope this helps!
Wow! These taste great and are so easy!
I’m so glad you like them! Thanks
Do you know how many ounces of chocolate there are in 3 squares? I have both a 4 ounce bar of Baker’s Unsweetened Chocolate and a 4 ounce bar of Ghiradellis Unsweetened Chocolate. The Baker’s bar has 16 quarter-ounce blocks and the Ghiradellai’s bar has 8 half-ounce blocks. If I use 3 blocks of Baker’s chocolate, that would be 3/4 of an ounce but I want to use the Ghiradelli…so does that mean I should use 1 and a half blocks?
Thanks for the help!
That is a great question because I had assumed that all baking chocolate was wrapped up the same way! In my packages of Bakers chocolate the squares are pre-wrapped and weigh one ounce each. I am going to add that up in the recipe too. Thanks!
Love your recipes!, would love to receive your newsletter/blog by email, please.
You really made my day! I’ll have to learn how to do that email notification thing, LOL! I’m not a professional blogger, I just put up a recipe every now and then when I feel inspired to do it. Thanks for reading!
Have you made these with the chocolate part on the top and bottom?
oh wow, no! But what an awesome idea! I will have to try that!
Can you use unsweetened cocoa powder for the chocolate?
It’s not a direct substitute for the chocolate. You’d have to figure out how much cocoa powder plus how much extra fat (butter or coconut oil) would make the equivalent. It would just take a little experimenting.
Omg these are amazing. I made them a little smaller because my calorie needs usually aren’t that high, and frozen them in mini muffin cups. I was sad I was out of almonds, but having these is going to be great for those “oh shit moments” where I realize that I haven’t ingested hardly ANY fat that day. I’m still new to this and it’s really easy for me to revert to the “skinniest” diet food which is usually plain chicken and steamed broccoli. I tried adding coconut oil to my coffee but I didn’t like the mouth feel.
Oh I’m so glad you like them! And I like the idea of making them in the little mini cups, better portion control. Thanks for commenting!
How much is a dropper?
When you buy the Liquid Stevia it comes with a dropper. A full dropper is about equivalent to about 2 tbsp sugar. But all this is really a matter of individual taste, you can use more or less.
the liquid stevia i bought does not have a dropper. do you know how much is in the dropper?
The ones that I have bought without a dropper still have a lid with a little hole that allows you to dispense 1 drop at a time, so hopefully that’s the case? If I was forced to guess how much was in the dropper, I’d start with 1/4 teaspoon maybe.
great recipe – as I am german I had to convert a bit, but I hope it works. My only question: what is a S BLADE???
It’s the name for the normal blade that you use in your food processor, if you look at the blade from above it has a curve like an ‘S’. I’ll see if I can find a picture and add it to the page here. :-)
OMG – was eating these straight out of the food processor, they were awesome. I actually put them in a muffin pan and will probably just cut them in half. Since I was eating the last bits out of the food processor, I’m going to call it a success. Thanks so much for the recipe!
LOL< glad you liked them. Actually I like the idea of using muffin tins for that.
I’d like to try these. I would use erythritol in place of stevia. Any idea how much would equal the stevia drops? Do you foresee any problem using powder erythritol ?
No problem that I can see as far as texture. I’m just not sure of how to equate them as far as how much erythritol to equal the droppers of liquid. I’m all out of my liquid stevia and haven’t reordered it so I can’t even check the bottle for you to tell you what’s in a dropperful.. maybe try asking the question in one of the bigger low carb groups on facebook? Someone might know how to convert it.
I was wondering if you have the nutritional values for these. Carbs, fat, protein and fiber? They are truly wonderful. I’d love my carb eating friends to try them, but they are allll mine :)
I don’t have the fibre , but the rest of the info is near the bottom of the post. “Each bar is 216 calories, 2 net carbs, 22 g fat, 2 g protein. If you use powdered sweeteners instead of liquid, or semisweet chocolate, then adjust the carbs accordingly.” I am glad that you like them! :-)
this might be a silly question, but..
is the 1/3c coconut oil measured when it’s a solid, then melted? or melt it first, then measure out a 1/3 c?
I measured out 1/3 cup, then melted it and poured into the food processor. But I think it wouldn’t matter if someone did it the other way. Because there is no baking involved, there is lots of room for error in either direction. Hope that helps!
I made these tonight, mine didn’t turn out thick as yours but yes very yummy. Good fix for someone who is just starting out and not sure of what to eat and not eat. But this is definitely a great way to load on the fat. Much better than a tsp of Mct oil! Thanks for sharing!
Thanks for trying them! Mine could be thicker due to a smaller pan? And I agree, MCT oil: ICK! Chocolate and coconut: YUM! :-)
I am currently on a fat fast, and have been looking something with a lot of fat, low carbs and low protein. This was perfect!
I did make a couple of adjustments, because I didn’t have liquid Stevia. I used powdered Swerve sweetener, and I probably used a teaspoon or a little more.
I did not have liquid coconut oil, so I melted the solid coconut oil instead. Doing this caused the chocolate to separate a bit, the same as it does when making bulletproof coffee.
I also used more coconut shards than the recipe called for. Probably half a bag, because when I put everything in the food processor, it got really runny (I probably over processed). After everything set in the freezer, I cut them into 12 pieces, and they were AMAZING! There is a nice little crunch with sweet chocolate and coconut taste. YUM.
I used a glass cake pan, as I don’t have the silicon mold, and it worked totally fine. Seriously so good! One of my favorite Keto recipes!
Oh I’m so glad it worked out for you! I just love the combination of coconut and chocolate, it’s the best! :-)
I have powdered stevia right now; do you think I could use that and if so, how much is equivalent to a dropper full of the liquid? I am guessing it is much less since the powder is so so sweet in tiny amounts.
These look so yummy!!
Hmmm, I have not used the powdered before. I want to say 1/2 teaspoon but I think you might have to experiment with it.
If you don’t have the silicone pans then line your pan with wax paper leaving paper over the edges. Pull out of pan with the paper.
Yes I used to do that before I discovered silicone pans! It is an alternative. Thanks for visiting!
I just tried googling this question to no avail, low and behold all i needed to do was scroll down. thank thank thank you now excuse me while i get my bake on!
These look awesome. I sooo miss Mounds bars and this looks like it fits the bill!
Thanks for sharing! :)
Yes, it does give me a bit of that chocolate coconut fix!
How much does the three squares of baker’s chocolate weigh please? That is not a product we have here so I need to use a different brand :)
The squares are pretty big as they sell them here. Each square is 1 ounce. You could easily use chocolate chips or any baking chocolate.
This is freaking UNREAL.
Ok! :-) Thanks for stopping by!
Is that the calories per square after you have cut them?
Yes, that is correct!
Yes, that is correct
Can I make these using my Vitamix? I don’t have a food processor. Should I invest in one? I see lots of good low carb/keto recipes requiring one so I’m wondering if I should just get one.
Linda @ http://www.homeschooling6.com
I have not tried them in my Vitamix yet. I find each of these appliances have their uses, and you will never regret having both. My Vitamix and my food processor are always on the counter because I use them both equally.
I can’t wait to try these! I’ve got to get one of those silicone pans.
The silicone pans and muffin pans are the bomb! I also love the sheets.
I am a chocolate maker (bean-to-bar) that makes a 100% organic stone-ground cacao bar (only one ingredient) that would be perfect for this recipe. I am a big proponent of healthy fats and chocolate. I will share this on my facebook page.
Thanks for visiting and for the share! Would love to know more about your chocolate that you make!
And that is why I keep things like this in the freezer!
And indeed they are!
Chocolate and coconut sounds so yum! It is a great combination, you are right! And this picture is a killer! Thank you for sharing :)
Oh ya, that chocolate layer on top just makes me sigh …
these look delicious! and so easy to make! I am officially craving now at work (and not a good thing as i am here for the next few hours with no food!)
Now that is a dilemma. Make some to take to work!
Those look so delicious. I love that they sound relatively easy to make, too. I am not the greatest baker, so easy is right up my alley!
The cool thing is that there is no baking required!
Wow! Those look so so so delicious. Thank goodness today is Saturday and it’s my grocery store day. I’m adding these ingredients to my list and will be making these bars this afternoon. Can’t wait!
I hope you like them! They were very popular here!
Let me know how they turn out for you!
