Lara-Like No-bake Coconut Cream Chewy Bar

Lara-Like No Bake Coconut Chewy Bars

 

I love making my own healthier version of commercial products that I enjoys. Lara Bars have a great coconut cream bar but they are less expensive and so simple to make why buy them?

This is a great snack to include your kids in to help you make.  These no-bake bars makes a great snack for school lunches, they are gluten free, raw, and packed with protein.

Play with ingredients, you could add in peanut butter, jelly, chocolate chips, your favorite cereal or maple syrup as a sweetener, have fun and make it yummy.

Enjoy!!

I am allergic to all nuts but peanuts is a substitute you recommend for cashews and almonds instead of 1/2 c of peanuts?

I would try making them with a little less than 1/2 cup of an organic cereal, maybe try an organic cheerio. Another substitute would be think a little bit less than 1/4 cup of each flax and raw pumpkin seeds.

The cereal sounds good, I’m going to make it again today with Organic O’s and see how it turns out.
