I am always trying to come up with new ways to come up with sweet treats that are healthy for my husband and I to eat. We both enjoy our desserts-- so why not make them healthy??
I'm big on eating lots of fats! And coconut is one of my favorite things in the universe. I like coconut everything!
I usually make no-bakes for my husband and I to munch on but this time I thought I would try to come up with something different.
I bought some organic, virgin coconut oil- (which I hadn't had in a very long time... there was a mix up with my supplier and they send me the RBG kind (YUCK!)) and I completely loved the smell and the taste. It was intoxicating!
So here is my recipe for coconut maple bars!
3 Tablespoons of Organic Virgin Coconut Oil find it here)
1 Cup of Unsweetened Dried Coconut flakes (find it here)
3 Tablespoons of Pure Maple Syrup
1 Teaspoon of Cinnamon-Vanilla Extract (find the kind I use here)
1- Put all the ingredients in a food processor or nutribullet
2- Process until smooth
3- Put them into a container or pan with parchment paper. I used muffin tins! Little muffin cups make things much easier to travel with!
~Until next time~
