These delicious Cappuccino Bounty Bars are the perfect healthy, dairy free alternative to the popular chocolate bar with a coffee flavoured twist! They are made using just five ingredients and are honestly so tasty!
I based these on my original Bounty Bar recipe, and after creating a version with raspberries, which you can find here, I started thinking about other flavours that would work well with the coconut. Hence my Cappuccino Bounty Bar recipe was born!
They are quick and easy to make and require no cooking or blending meaning anyone can make them. You can use the fridge or freezer to help these set once they have been coated in chocolate. I personally like to use the freezer as I prefer a firmer texture – I also store them in there once set and just allow them a few minutes to thaw out before eating.
The combination of maple syrup and coconut milk mixed in with the desiccated coconut keeps the centre of these bars nice and creamy, just like actual Bountys. I prefer to make my original Bounty Bars with a dark chocolate coating, however, due to the deep, slightly bitter flavour of the coffee I prefer these bars with a sweeter chocolate so I use a dairy free milk alternative. Having said that, you could try these bars coated in whatever type you want.
This recipe requires a finely powdered instant coffee as opposed to granules. If granules are all you have available just bash them up a bit so they form a fine powder before adding them to the mixing bowl with the other ingredients.
You will need to use the creamy part of the coconut milk in this recipe rather than the watery part, however, you can save the watery part to use in a recipe such as this Tomato & Aubergine Thai Red Curry. You will need to use full fat coconut milk for this recipe.
The preparation time I have noted for this recipe may seem excessive but please note this includes the time taken for the bars to set, it will only really take ten minutes to assemble these vegan bounty bars.
