I made a homemade dessert inspired by Almond Joy bars. It’s got three layers – coconut, sliced almonds, and either chocolate or carob.
For the coconut layer, combine the following in a food processor and pulse until you’ve got a somewhat creamy well blended mix.
3 cups unsweetened coconut flakes
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup coconut cream
1/4 cup maple syrup
Line a pie pan with clingfilm and press coconut mixture into pan. Top with sliced almonds.
I then made both carob and chocolate sauce to spread on top. Melt 1/4 cup of coconut oil. Add 2 tablespoons of maple syrup. Then stir in either cocoa powder or carob powder until the mixture has the consistency of melted chocolate.
Spread chocolate or carob (I made it with half chocolate and half carob). Refrigerate for an hour so the chocolate sets.
