Very similar to the popular and delicious Kind bars - these are quick and easy to make...and freezer perfect for later enjoyment!
Ingredients
  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • ½ cup 40% less fat coconut shreds
  • ½ cup honey
  • 2 Tbsp wheat germ
  • ½ cup whole almonds
  • ½ cup almond slivers
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Mix coconut (unsweetened and 40% less fat), honey, and wheat germ together in a medium bowl. Stir in almonds (whole and slivers). Mix until blended well.
  3. Spray a 8 x 8 pan with non-stick cooking spray. Spread mixture, pressing firmly to the bottom of the pan, leveling the surface with a spatula coated in cooking spray. Bake 20-25 minutes, until surface is browned.
  4. Let pan cool to room temperature. Once firmed up, transfer the 8 x 8 contents to a cutting board. Cut into 8 even portions. Wrap in wax paper to preserve.
Notes
Omit wheat germ to make gluten-free!
