Lisa over at "Blessed With Grace" hosts this weekly meme along with her sister, Lana. It's an opportunity to post one of your favorite recipes.
OK, I realize this is not the most delectable, mouth-watering, tempting recipe you've ever seen. But if you like peanut butter and coconut and want something healthy and nutritious, keep reading.
My friend, Kelly, who is extremely fit and healthy, shared this recipe with me awhile back. She uses all organic products if at all possible.
Half of my family loves it and the other half thinks they are good.
Coconut Bar Recipe:
2 cups oats
1 cup organic coconut (not the sweetened store-bought kind)
1 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup fruit juice sweetened cranberries
1/3 cup flax seeds
1/3 cup Shaklee fiber crunch (optional)
1/4 cup Shaklee protein powder (optional)
1/3 cup coconut oil (melted to liquid form)
1/2 cup honey
1 cup organic peanut butter (sorry, Jif is out)
Mix it all up and flatten in a 9 x 13 inch pan and refrigerate. Cut into squares and keep refrigerated. They taste better cold.
These are some of the tastiest, healthiest bars I have ever tasted. It might be that I LOVE coconut and that's why I love them. If I have one for breakfast, it keeps me satisfied until lunch.
If you try them, let me know what you think. In the meantime, head over to Blessed With Grace to find more recipes.
