Ingredients:
  • 7oz AIP compliant cinnamon or molasses cookies, we used these Jack's Paleo Kitchen Ginger Molasses Cookies
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1 full-fat can coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 tbsp coconut butter
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened coconut, divided
  • 1/2 cup carob or chocolate chips
  • Instructions:
    1. Preheat oven to 350F.
    2. Make the caramel sauce by heating the coconut milk and coconut sugar in a medium pot until it begins to boil. Lower the heat to medium and let simmer, stirring often to prevent burning the sugar.
    3. Once the sauce thickens, about 20-25 minutes, remove the caramel from heat and stir in the coconut butter and vanilla. Set aside.
    4. In a food processor, process the cookies with the coconut oil until a crumb forms. Press the cookie crumb down into a parchment paper lined 8X8 baking pan.
    5. Layer the bottom cookie layer with 1/2 cups of the shredded coconut and all the carob chips.
    6. Pour the caramel sauce over the coconut and chocolate to cover the bars completely. Top off with the last 1/4 cup of shredded coconut.
    7. Bake the bars at 350F for 20 mins. Allow them to cool to room temperature before removing from the pan, cutting, and serving.
