Scale

Ingredients

For the crust

  • 1 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1112 dates, pitted
  • 1 1/2 tbsp coconut oil, melted

For the filling

  • 1 1/2 cup coconut cream (I highly recommend this brand)
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 6 tbsp lime juice
  • Zest of one lime
  • 1 tbsp arrowroot starch
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tbsp gelatin

For topping

  • Fresh lime zest
  • 12 sliced limes for garnish (optional)

Instructions

For the crust

  1. Prepare a 9×9″ baking pan by lining with parchment paper and setting side.
  2. If the dates are hard, soak in warm water for 5 minutes to soften. Drain the water.
  3. Combine the shredded coconut, dates, and coconut oil in a food processor and blend until fully combined.
  4. Press the crust into the baking pan by pressing down with your hands. Spread to evenly disperse. Set aside.

For the filling

  1. Combine the coconut cream, coconut oil, honey, lime zest and lime juice in a large bowl and mix well.
  2. Stir in the arrowroot starch and whisk to avoid any clumps from forming.
  3. Add the water to a small pot and sprinkle the gelatin over top. Set aside for 2-4 minutes to harden. Move to the stove top and set the stove to low heat to allow the gelatin to melt over 1-2 minutes. The mixture should be fully liquid. Remove from the stove top and whisk vigorously until frothy.
  4. Stir the gelatin mixture into the coconut cream mixture and stir well to combine.
  5. Pour the filling over the crust and place in the refrigerator to harden for 6-8 hours.
  6. Remove from the fridge and carefully slice into 9 bars and top with lime zest, and lime slices for garnish if desired. Serve chilled.
