Ingredients

One 13.5-ounce can coconut milk, at room temperature

1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup 

1/3 cup coconut oil, at room temperature 

1 1/2 cups almond flour 

1/8 teaspoon sea salt 

1/2 cup almonds, chopped 

3/4 cup dark chocolate chips 

1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes 

Directions

  1. Whisk together the coconut milk and 1/3 cup of the maple syrup in a large pot over high heat. Bring the mixture to a low boil and boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Turn the heat down to medium and simmer until the sauce is reduced by about half, stirring frequently, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove the sauce from the heat and allow to cool while you make the crust.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a square pan with parchment paper. 
  3. Mix the remaining 2 tablespoons maple syrup with the coconut oil in a large bowl until it is smooth and creamy. Add the almond flour and mix to create a sticky and clumpy dough that holds together when pressed, adding a little water if too dry. 
  4. Press the dough evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan using the palms of your hands. Bake the crust just until lightly golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. 
  5. Once the crust is lightly golden, layer the chopped almonds over top and lightly press them into the crust. Over the almond layer, add the dark chocolate chips followed by the unsweetened coconut flakes. 
  6. Pour 1 cup of the slightly cooled coconut milk mixture as evenly as possible over the top and then gently move the pan around until the coconut milk mixture begins to sink between the layers. Put into the oven and bake until the sides are lightly golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes. 
  7. Remove from the oven and cool to room temperature. Then chill overnight in the refrigerator. 
  8. When ready to eat, slice into squares and enjoy.
