Coconut Rough Bars

Coconut Rough Bars


  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 2 tbsp cacao
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp cacao nibs ( can use dark choc chips if preferred)
  • Coconut flakes
  • Chocolate Coco2 Spread to drizzle over top prior to serving (optional)


  1. Line a square cake tin pan with baking paper (so they are easy to lift out)
  2. In a big mixing bowl mix all the ingredients together, I start with the dry ingredients and then mix the wet ingredients in. I use my hands so that everything is mixed really well, and then they don’t crumble apart.
  3. Press mixture into the pan, sprinkle coconut flakes over the top and press them into the top of the mix lightly
  4. Set in the fridge for 2-3hrs
  5. Drizzle some Chocolate Coco2 spread over prior to serving, this is optional

Recipe serves 10, 140 calories per serve.

Krystle Allan has lost over 20kg on the challenges flash back friday weight loss results - Krystle Allan

Krystle says “The other day I posted my current photo and think I got a little down on myself. Then someone asked about my before photos and wow!! Over 20kg and stacks of cm’s!  What a change! Yes I do have more goals I want to achieve with toning but look how far i have come! Not only that but my confidence has grown so much!

I couldn’t recommend the Healthy Mummy smoothies any higher and wouldn’t have achieved this result without the 28 day weight loss challenge, smoothies, books and of course this group!
Thank you for keeping me on track!”
