Low Carb Coconut Bark

Low Carb Coconut Bark

This is a recipe for a super simple and yummy low carb treat...Coconut Bark! 
This recipe is also very versatile and can easily be tweaked to fit your taste. 


For those that have been following me for awhile, you know I LOVE Quest Protein Bars. They are the only protein bar i've ever found with minimal processed ingredients with the lowest carb count. Please...no Questbar hater comments. You won't dissuade me from them. I adore them and they keep me sane haha! With that said though, unfortunately for SOME people any artificial sugar causes weight loss stalls and extra sugar cravings, so be careful with sugar free processed foods until you know how they affect your health and weight loss efforts. I try to keep my artificial sugar intake to a minimum with the exception of my glorious Quest Bars. 

Ok, on to the good stuff! This coconut bark couldn't be any easier to make. Plus, you can leave out the Quest Bar and sub your own ingredients such as berries, cacao nibs, or nuts. I'm excited to try adding some blueberries to my next batch!  OR you can just make the coconut bark by itself which just leaves you with a 1 ingredient dessert...awesome right?!



Ingredients
Coconut Butter-You can stop here OR add...
A Quest Bar OR your choice of additive
(berries or cacao nibs would be awesome!)

Keep in mind though that you can leave out the Quest Bar or any additive for that matter. The coconut bark alone is delicious! Or you could add a low carb fruit such as blueberries, strawberries, or blackberries for a more natural bark. It's really up to you! Just know you have options...i'm just showing you what I made for my first batch. I used a White Chocolate Raspberry Quest Bar and it was fabulous! 

*Just a Tip! After the bark completely freezes, break into pieces and keep in a ziplock bag or container in the fridge. It will stay solid, but it tastes better when it's not so frozen.

  3. Oh, Boy. Was this ever good! I didn't have Quest Bar but had just received sample Atkins bar in mail, so used that. Ate it all. YUM!

  4. I have to say I love Quest bars too. My kids and I were going through them too quickly so I tried to hold off ordering them because they are spendy, but I couldn't stand it anymore and ordered more today. They have helped me keep my sanity too! If it's ok to mention this, the best deal I've found has been at Supplement Warehouse. I will definitely try this recipe too!

  5. I love Quest bars too!! My kids hated them (which I was kinda happy about because they are expensive). I have tried the variety packs on Amazon, so I can try them all. I am anxious to try this recipe. I think I will try the Strawberry Cheesecake kind with the coconut butter.

Thanks for visiting, I love hearing from you, however it still always surprises me how many mean and rotten comments I receive, so please remember that I post what I eat merely as a suggestion of ideas for others. Low carbing is not cut and dry. What works for me may or may not work for you. Also, I live exclusively low carb, but I don't live my life counting them so I don't often include the net carb counts on recipes. Happy low carbing ya'll! :)
