This is Joe's new favorite bar. He loves white chocolate chips so I decided to use lots of cocoa for contrast. I love coconut and use it in every form in much of my cooking and baking. There are so many health benefits and it just tastes wonderful. A more informative coconut post is in the works but I would encourage you to research and see if coconut oil or other coconut products would be a good addition to your diet. This gluten free bar is chewy and moist. Hope you enjoy it.
1 lb. Almond Meal – Trader Joe’s

2/3 Cup Organic Cane Sugar
½ Cup Coconut Flakes
1 T Gluten Free Vanilla

In this recipe I use Tropical Traditions virgin coconut oil which has a strong but sweet coconut flavor. I also use their coconut flakes which are not sweetened.
