I haven’t always been a coconut fan. I think because it was always the highly processed sweetened kind.

These bars have FOUR kinds of coconut in them! Over kill? NO WAY!

Well, the unsweetened coconut chips are a great addition to homemade trail mix, top brownies and smoothies with and to enjoy by themselves.

The flakes on the top, add a tiny bit of crunch and I just think they are cute.

Yes, cute!

These bars are best served slightly warmed…but they need to be cooled first in order to cut them easily.

I know, a lot of directions, I’m giving you.

  • 2 cups unsweetened (shredded/flakes or chips) coconut, separated
  • 1 teaspoon course salt

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 8×8 pan with cooking spray. Use parchment paper if you want.
  2. Mix eggs, coconut milk, oil, honey, vanilla and in a food processor.
  3. Add almond flour, coconut flour, 1 1/2 cups of shredded coconut  and salt and pulse to combine.

  1. Hi Katherine, Thanks for the follow, and for introducing me to your site. These paleo coconut bars look amazing and simple to make. I’m going to try them this week (maybe adding a little lemon zest/juice, since I love lemon with coconut). -Moira
