Now here in Australia we have these candy bars called Bounty Bars...they are decadent and oh so scrummy. So I think I have come up with a diabetic friendly version.

Bounty Bars

Food Ingredient Blue Cuisine Baked goods

Ingredients

phase one

2 tablespoons of gelatine
1/2 cup boiling water

phase two

2 tablespoons liqud sweetener
1/2 cup icy cold water

phase three
1 cup of cream
1 tsp vanilla

phase four
2 cups coconut
1/2 cup plain protein powder

phase five
80% cocoa butter dark chocolate

Method

phase one

boil kettle and mix ½ cup of boiling water with gelatine until dissolved

tip contents into electric mixer

phase two
in a bowl/jug mix liquid sweetener, 1/2 cup icy cold water

beat until very very fluffy (basically making a marshmallow)

empty the marshmallow into a clean bowl

phase three
beat the cream and vanilla until soft peaks form

phase four
mix the coconut and protein powder in a bowl

take some of the cream and fold gently through dry ingredients to break it up a bit

alternate folding in the marshmallow and cream until incorporated

spray a tray or container with oil/butter

tip filling into tray and let set in the refrigerator

cut into bar shapes

phase five
melt chocolate over a saucepan of simmering water

dip the bars into the chocolate/or tip over the filling and cut into bars

Now the bounty bars that are made here come in plain coconut and a new cherry flavour which would be fairly easy to replicate. I was thinking there could be many other flavour combinations.

Lime?

Hazelnut?

Any ideas?

We have something similar here we call them Almond Joy Bars. I have seen some different recipes online but haven't tried them yet. I think my problem would be limiting to 1 or 2 pieces. Make sure you use Unsweetened Coconut.

ah huh I did....what surprised me was I had one :) and waited...no huge binge urge...I was very surprised lol...and they were really light...I felt clean after eating one if you know what I mean...

I'm actually not a big sweets person...I always look for ways to make low carb treats for my son who is also diabetic...his other disabilities make it impossible for him to understand that he can't have certain foods because of his diabetes...I guess I feel better when I can make him things he really likes...he hasn't given the green light on these yet lol he's one tough audience
