Raw Vegan 3-Layer Bars

Jump to recipe


Here’s another delicious and easy-to-make summer dessert recipe that’s vegan-friendly and requires no cooking. There’s something for everyone: coconut, chocolate and nuts – all my favorite things.

You don’t have to make all the layers if you feel lazy, or you can make the top layer by just melting your favorite dark chocolate. However, I like adding some nut butter to make the chocolate layer softer and even more delicious. I usually use tahini, but some almond or hazelnut butter would be great too.




For the dark layer

  • 1/2 cup of desiccated coconut, nuts or seeds of your choice
  • 2 tablespoon of coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons of maple syrup or another sweetener of your choice
  • 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder


For the white layer


For the chocolate layer

  • 1/3 cup of dark chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon of nut butter – optional
  • Crushed nuts for decoration – optional



For the dark layer

Melt the coconut oil, if you need to, and mix it with the maple syrup and cocoa powder. Then, add the desiccated coconut and/or some ground nuts and seeds. Mix everything well and transfer the mixture into a small tray or container, and press it down. I decided to use an ice cube mold because it’s easier to shape the bars.

Put it in the freezer until you make the next layer.


For the white layer

Mix the coconut oil with coconut cream and maple syrup. Then add the desiccated coconut and mix everything together. Press down this mixture over the dark layer and put the mold back in the freezer.


For the chocolate layer

Melt the chocolate and mix it with the nut butter. Pour it over the white layer, decorate with chopped nuts and keep the bars in the fridge until everything is set.


Enjoy! 🙂

    1. Thank you so much! 🙂 Maybe you can use the fresh coconut for the white layer, I just can’t find it here.

    1. Thank you so much for your comment Adrina! They are very easy to make, and they are definitely worth it 🙂

    1. Thank you very much, Angela! 🙂 I used a hard plastic ice cube tray for them and it was a little challenging. Using a butter knife helped a lot though. There shouldn’t be any problems if you have a silicone one.
