Pecan & Coconut Bars

Prep Time: 10 minutes | Bake Time: 15 minutes

Pecans – 1 1/4 cup

Fine desiccated coconut – 1 cup

Dried pitted dates – 1/2 cup

Honey – 2 Tbsp

Coconut Oil – 1/2 Tbsp

Cinnamon – 1/2 tsp

Salt – a generous pinch


Preheat oven to 170 degrees celsius.

Line a baking tray (approx. 15cm x 25cm, or smaller to get thicker bars) with baking paper.

Blend all of the ingredients together in a food processor.

Press the mixture firmly and evenly into your lined slice tray (I use the back of a spoon).

Bake for 15 minutes or until lightly browned.

Let cool and cut into squares (they are delicious warm but be careful when picking them up as they can fall apart easily before they’ve completely cooled).

Store in an airtight container.
