So Good For You Coconut Slice

My knitting muse, Yvette has this awesome Coconut Treat recipe.  I was actually blown away by the party in my mouth when I tasted it.  Not only are they amazingly tasty, but they are sooo good for you. Full of coconut goodness, no refined sugar, no gluten just pure health health health.  A bit like the old party favourite Chocolate Crackles but without the hydrogenated fat or the refined sugar and with a higher fibre content.  
Not great      
Yvette had rolled hers into beautiful little balls of coconut goodness but as I am a path of least resistance kind of person, I have just pressed the mix into a tin and cut up as a slice.  

Yvette's Coconut So Good Slice

3 cups shredded coconut
3/4 cup almond meal
3/4 cup cocoa powder

1/3 cup coconut oil
2 tablespoons of honey (or maple syrup if you prefer) 

Mix all of the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. 
Melt coconut and honey until liquid and mix into the dry ingredients. 
When well combined pour into a paper lined tray and press to compact.
Refrigerate until set and then cut into squares.

Store in the fridge and best served cold.  

Mix all the ingredients 
Press into a tray and refrigerate
