Paleo Coconut Crack Bars are vegan, gluten-free and no bake. They are easy to make, with only 6 ingredients and ready in 5 mins! Also, the video below shows the easy steps on how to perfectly make them!

Coconut desserts are among the best. We love them because they are super tasty and easy to make like No-Bake Almond Joy Roll, Cheesecake Coconut Cookies and Coconut Avocado Lime Bars.

Paleo Coconut Crack Bars

These Paleo Coconut Crack Bars are not only good looking and delicious, but they are also actually healthy, with not a gram of added refined sugar! The bars are also gluten-free, no-bake, vegan and pack a boatload of amazing coconut flavor. The bars are made with only six ingredients and it will literally take you 5 minutes to throw these together.

Paleo Coconut Crack Bars are truly the best, as they are packed with coconut flakes, oil and also butter! The coconut butter takes them to another level, adding extra creaminess and satiety! They are indulgent, yet healthy. The bars must be stored in the fridge, as the oil and butter will melt at room temperature.

Hi, I have a question it may seem silly. Can I meet the coconut butter with the oil at the same time or,is it going to cause something weird to happen? Thanks!


as long as both are room temperature it will work



I made these Keto by using Lilly’s stevia sweetened chocolate chips and Choco Love’s Maple flavored sugar-free syrup. They were fantastic!!! Thanks so much for such a delicious treat! 


Such a great idea, thank you for sharing the substitutions with us, I am sure it will help other readers.



Awesome recipe! Turned out well for low sugar! :) I added extra coconut oil in the chocolate glaze and extra coconut butter on the base which helped make it a little less crumbly. Make sure you press in the pan well!



These are so amazing tasting!! I bought some to work and had many people asking for the recipe. I look forward to trying some of your other items.


so happy that you enjoyed these

What should I use if I can't find coconut butter? Thanks


For these bars, I would not recommend substituting the coconut butter.



What can i use instead of coconut butter?


This recipe is based on coconut butter, so I do not recommend substituting it.



What chocolate chips are paleo?? I can’t find them.


You can use Terrasoul Superfoods Raw Organic Cacao Nib, check them on amazon
