Coconut and Chocolate Bar

15Og gluten free and wheat free plain flour (I use Dove’s Farm)
1tsp xanthan gum
30g desiccated coconut
75g dairy free margarine (I use Pure soya or Sunflower)
50g caster sugar
100g dairy free, gluten free and egg free chocolate chips(I use a brand called “D&D chocolates”)
20g coconut oil (you can buy this in most health food shops, you can also get it in some Super Valu’s and its good value.)
2tsp golden syrup or honey
1tsp vanilla extract

Place the flour, xanthan gum and desiccated coconut into a bowl and rub in the margarine with your fingers. Add the sugar and mix bring it all together with your hands. It will come together into a ball of dough.( no need to add any liquid)
Put the dough into the fridge for 30 minutes. Pre-heat the oven to 170 degrees celcius (Fan).
When the dough has chilled take it out and roll between 2 sheets of clingflim, roll it out to about 1 cm thick and cut the bars to whatever size you like I get about 12 bars from this mix. Place them on a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake in the oven for 20 minutes.When baked take them out and lay them on a wire rack too cool.
Mean while make the chocolate coating put the chocolate, coconut oil, golden syrup and vanilla extract into a bowl over a pan of hot water. Stirr them all together then, when the biscuits are cooled coat them in the chocolate mix. Lay them on a tray let them cool then, place them in the fridge to harden. ( Don’t put the chocolate into the fridge hot this will take the shine off the chocolate).
These can be stored in a airthighht container for at least a week. Enjoy šŸ™‚
