Method

  1. Grease and line an 8-inch square baking tin with baking paper and set aside.
  2. Heat honey, coconut oil and a pinch of salt in a small saucepan over medium heat for about 10 minutes until it begins to thicken and turn a rich, golden caramel colour (keep an eye on the heat so that it doesn’t bubble over suddenly).
  3. Fold in the chopped nuts, cinnamon seeds and coconut and stir until evenly coated.
  4. Remove from heat and pour into the lined baking pan. Cover with another sheet of baking paper and press down firmly – using a tea towel if needed to protect your fingers from the heat – to form an even layer. Refrigerate until hardened.
  5. Cut into squares with a sharp knife and keep refrigerated until you’re ready to dip in the melted chocolate.
  6. Melt chocolate.
  7. Dip one end or corner of each square into melted chocolate and sprinkle with a few flakes of salt before placing on a baking paper lined tray to set in the fridge.
  8. After an hour, the bars will be ready to enjoy.
