Instructions:

In a bowl, mix all the ingredients for the bars until well combined. Transfer the mixture into a tray, spread it evenly and press on top with a spoon (I used my fingers for that). Refrigerate for 2-3 hours, or until the mixture has hardened.

When the coconut mixture is hardened enough, make the topping by gently mixing all the ingredients in a small bowl until smooth. HINT: It works best when the coconut oil is slightly heated. Then, pour it over the coconut mixture and refrigerate again for minimum 2-3 hours.

When ready, cut it into squares and enjoy 😊 Store it in the fridge or in the freezer.
