Almond coconut bars

I have literally just made these almond coconut bars and they are plain sensational. I wanted to have a healthy snack and something that would keep me full for a while. These totally worked.

5 ingredient almond coconut bars | Eat Good 4 Life

These almond coconut bars not only are gluten free and vegan but they essentially only have 5 ingredients. They are not sweet at all and the coconut with the almond flavor combined is just superb.

I tend to make a lot of raw bars but most of them with dates. Because dates are sweet the bars tend to sort of sweet, however, these almond coconut bars don’t have any dates so they are just perfect and not sweet at all.

If you think you are nog going to eat the bars all at once…well in a few days that is, these bars will keep great in the freezer.

I love making things like this not only because they are healthy but because they are super fast to make and great for a snack. My kids actually love them. With a tall glass of organic milk these bars are just great. These are the sort of snacks I like to have after working out too.

I hope you get to make these bars. A lot of my raw desserts required a food processor, if you don’t have one I suggest you invest some money on getting a good one. It will last you a long time and you will be able to make superb desserts, such as bars and much more. I actually could not live without it.

Miryam's original recipe

Yield: 12 bars

Total Time: 10 minutes



Line a 9x 5 inch loaf baking pan with unbleached parchment paper and set aside.

In a food processor place all the ingredients except the water. Pulse. If the mixture doesn't come together add 1 tablespoon of water at a time pulsing the food processor in between. If needed, add more water until the mixture comes together.

Place the mixture in the prepared baking pan and with a spatula press until it is uniform on all sides. Place in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours. Cut into squares and keep leftovers covered in the refrigerator.

NOTE: If you are in need of a food processor this is a good one, fairly inexpensive, and won't burn your motor in 3 months!

    And those muffins looks amazing! I’m so happy that your first coconut flour adventure went well. My first few were really not good. And the pictures are so pretty!

  3. With two young kids, healthy lunch ideas (that kids and adults would actually enjoy) would be awesome. It seems like all the moms I know get stuck on what to serve for lunch. Simple, quick, healthy lunches would be great!

    Good luck on your book!

  4. Yum! I’ve been wanting to try more with coconut flour. I made some pancakes that kind of scared me off, but I want to try again. So funny that you would choose these things to giveaway! I was thinking of getting the zester and the scoop(in a couple different sizes!) next time I order from amazon. I think they’d be super useful. As for things to include in your ebook, I’d say quick make-ahead snacks! Always need those :)

  5. And I like you on FB :D

  6. I’d love to see healthy desserts! Especially chocolatey ones :)

  9. I would like you to include healthy desserts! I can’t stay away from my chocolate lava cakes so I’d love to see a healthier version of them

  10. I would like to see a comparison of different sugars -brown vs white (for examaple) and then also a nutritional comparison of sugar substitues or alternatives such as maple syrup, agave, stevia, honey, sweet and low, etc. Love this recipe by the way!

  11. i would like to see all the nutrition facts of every recipe

  12. I’m not very clever and I can’t think of anything really good, but I like the idea of make ahead stuff. Make ahead snacks, desserts, meals, whatever.

  13. Ooooohhhh, those muffins look so yummy! I have a bag of coconut flour sitting lonely in the pantry. I think I’ll get bananas tomorrow to make the muffins! :-)

    I’d like to see healthy dessert or snacks for both kids and adults. Also, healthy quick meal ideas with alternatives.

    Thanks for sharing the recipe!!!

  15. Can you include something about packing a healthy lunch? I always get in a rut when I’m making things to eat while at work.

  16. i would like to see quick and healthy after school snacks for the kids (teens)

  17. i like Eat Good 4 Life on Facebook

  18. I would love it if your cook book included some gluten-free cookie recipes!

  19. Good luck with the book. I would like to see recipes that are low GI, using agave instead of sugar (even non-refined still makes your blood sugar rocket) and complex carb and without too much butter (I often use sunflower oil in cakes instead). Have you seen the Babycakes book? They use lots of alternative ingredients to make healthy but yummy cakes. Also I find spelt a great alternative to wheat (still has gluten but is more digestible). Good luck!

  20. I’ve recently been looking for recipes that are low on sugar but that do NOT have sugar substitutes and find it very difficult to find. Especially for baking recipes.

  21. I looove pasta dishes, but I’ve recently discovered that they’re more of an indulgence than anything! So much cream and fat to make the sauce delicious… It would be great if you could include ways to make the classic pasta dishes lighter and healthier, possibly without sacrificing the taste? Good luck with the book! :)

  22. Breakfast ideas! I’m always looking for breakfasts that I can make ahead of time that are well rounded nutritionally. Better still if they are warm breakfast ideas and not cold ones. Eating oatmeal does not keep my full long enough, and eating fruity quickbreads has too much sugar.


  23. Que delicioso! I want to make these asap!

  24. I love seeing ideas on how to make healthy substitutions without having to buy a lot of specialty items. Your muffin recipe is a perfect example as I have everything on hand already!

  25. Whenever I look at recipe books,if they don’t have the calories listed then I don’t even consider getting it. I’m probably a lot more picky about my cookbooks then others but I’m sure a lot of people would appreciate nutritional information. I know I would! :)

  26. I would like to see a health moist delicious carrot cake and brownie recipes.
