Coconut Walnut Bars

Morsels of Life - Coconut Walnut Bars - Make your own super simple coconut walnut bars with dried dates for a bit of sweetness.

Since we're all about great timing around these parts, we decided to try the "no added sugar" thing while James was at Jumpmaster school. You know, so I'd have to make all his snacks and stuff when we're already busy and short on time. Like I said, we're all about great timing around here. With everything going on, I went for simple when making these coconut walnut granola bars. Obviously coconut shreds and walnuts; some dried dates for sweetness and binding, and a bit of oatmeal for bulk and keeping everything together. Throw it into a food processor, squish it into a baking dish, bake, and you've got some simple flavorful coconut walnut bars (with no added sugars)! I only made 5 bars this time since I wanted to try out the recipe, but you could easily scale up the recipe to increase efficiency. :)

What are some of your favorite granola ingredients?
