No-bake coconut bars made with homemade condensed milk are an easy, healthy and keto delicious dessert that can satisfy your craving for sweet!
When it comes to desserts, I love easy recipes. But I have to admit that I like them fancy. On weekdays I don´t have much time and patience to prepare something fancy. That’s why I love this recipe. It´s really easy and quick to make and I think that they are perfect for kids.
This dessert is one that I love to make because it requires ingredients that usually I have in my pantry and in the other hand I don´t need to use a mixer! You can totally make these by hand, with a whisk, and a wooden spoon. These coconut bars do not require any baking, it comes together with only a few ingredients and most importantly, it is intensely, supremely satisfying.
I like to make these coconut bars for special occasions, but they’re really great for even a casual weekday.
This recipe contains homemade condensed milk. Condensed milk is a mixture of milk and sugar, which is simmered until it is reduced by about 1/3 and thickens. But you can do it sugar-free and dairy-free, and it’s easier than you think. You will only need two ingredients: coconut milk and low-carb sweetener. If you’re not on a keto diet you can use one can of sweetened condensed milk.
In my family, we have those who love coconut desserts and those that just ate them… I and my youngest son love coconut. In the other side, my husband and my oldest son aren’t a big fan of it. So I must say that I made these bars because of my little boy. He loves to eat them as a school snack.
The salted caramel that you see in the pictures is optional. This was my son’s request. It’s not sugar-free and you don’t need to drizzle your coconut bars with it.
Coconut bars freeze well – they even taste greatly frozen! You can store them in the fridge or even in an airtight jar at room temperature.
