Coconut White Chocolate Shortbread with Einkorn and Oats | © 2015 | | © 2015 |

These buttery make-ahead bars feature tender flaky shortbread topped with a thin layer of melted white chocolate and toasted coconut chips. It is quick and easy to make and great to bring to a party.

  • 140 g Einkorn, ground into flour
  • 140 g Rolled oats
  • 70 g Coconut blossom sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 140 g Butter, cut into small pieces
  • 200 g White Chocolate, chopped and melted
  • Toasted coconut chips
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Line an 8x10-inch baking pan with aluminum foil, leaving enough overhang on two opposing ends to use as handles. Whisk together einkorn flour, rolled oats, coconut blossom sugar, baking soda and salt. Add in butter pieces and mix until incorporated.
  2. Place the dough into the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake in the center of hot oven until nicely golden brown at the edges, 18 to 20 minutes.
  3. Melt the chopped white chocolate chips in a double boiler set over simmering water. When the crust is finished, remove it from the oven and let sit 5 minutes. Spread the melted chocolate evenly over the crust, then sprinkle with the toasted coconut chips. Cool completely, then carefully lift from the pan and cut into squares. | © 2015 | | © 2015 | | © 2015 |

The Duo Dishes 13/4/15 22:30

Those are so beautiful, especially with the big coconut flakes. They're hard to find in that size, but they're great for garnish.

First time I've heard of Einkorn - I'm going to have to google it to see what it is.

Fantastic treat! It was fascinating to read about einkorn on line. I would love to purchase the flour and try this recipe. Very nice photos!

Anonymous 14/4/15 01:03

No idea what einkorn was had to look it up. Not sure I could find coconut blossom sugar where I live.

Ashley@CookNourishBliss 14/4/15 01:32

Oh man, any kind of shortbread is such a weakness of mine! These look fantastic with that toasted coconut!

Eva Taylor 14/4/15 13:47

I just love the coconut shavings Angie, we just get grated coconut here so I'd likely have to shave them myself. Yet another flour I must Google, you definitely have a diversified gluten free pantry!

kitchen flavours 14/4/15 16:04

Such a delicious treat! I love the toasted coconut!

Honey Bee Sweets 14/4/15 18:05

Woahhh, these are some perked up oat bars! I can imagine the chewy sweet coconut chunks on top and the creamy satisfying oat layer below. Another fabulous idea Angie. ;)

Great recipe by the way, with yet more beautiful pictures!

All That I'm Eating 17/4/15 14:16

Fantastic to see another recipe with einkorn in, these sound so good.

Viviane Bauquet Farre - Food and Style 17/4/15 18:12

These look delicious, Angie! I love the way the toasted sliced coconut seems to be wildly growing from the tops of the bars. I'd be very happy to snack on one of these :)

Gourmet Getaways 18/4/15 06:03

Beautiful presentation, first off! While Julie is the white chocolate fan, Alesah loves this, too! Those toasted coconuts hit the spot. Excellent job, Angie :)

Oh my, these look wonderful Angie. Sweet treats given a heathy twist from you. Coconut sugar is a wonderful ingredient as is coconut nectar. I still don't know what Einkhorn is. I'd better go and look as I'm sure you answered me.
