Almond Coconut Bars

So along with my delicious stir-fry last night, I wanted to also bake a sweet treat. I had seen these almond coconut bars just a few days ago and realized I had all the ingredients on hand to make them. These were SO easy to throw together and were really good. I think they can definitely count as a sweet treat because of the chocolate chips, but they also are a great snack option or even something for breakfast.

The only difficult thing about these bars is that you really should lift them out of your pan using the sides of the wax paper, place on a plate and let them "set up" in the fridge. If you try to eat them right out of the oven they are somewhat of a gooey mess, although a delicious mess. I baked these in my loaf bread pan and that was the perfect size.

Oh AND these are gluten-free...enjoy!
