Do It Yourself Coconut Almond Bars
When I made these Coconut Almond Bars at home, I formed them into cookie shapes to take to a cookie exchange party. Of course you could even press the dough into cookie cutters to make fun shapes! I also used maple syrup instead of honey and skipped the raisins. Be creative, make them your own! Ultimately you could add different dried fruits to make variations. Don’t skimp on honey or maple syrup though. This is what holds it all together. Yum! The key here is to use whole food ingredients to make the bars as nutritious as possible. Better yet is to source locally harvested honey so that you can be sure that you are getting the real deal and not colored corn syrup.
These bars are a great anytime treat, can be eaten for breakfast or are a great snack on the go. We use real food ingredients to nourish the body. So yes, because these are made with whole, real food ingredients you can have your cake and eat it too with these delicious bars.
