Toasted Coconut - Hemp Bars


Once you go they way of Jedi health it seems that the good side of the force is firmly in the side on coconut. It's such a versatile ingredient. Adding some heart healthy hemp seeds to this snacking recipe makes quality of life that much more awesome.

These coconut bars are gluten-free, grain-free, paleo, vegan and aside from toasting the coconut, no-baking is required. They taste quite sweet but the sugar content is fairly low per portion with only 1/3 cup of natural sweetener in the entire recipe. They’re sweetened with raw honey and only contain a handful of other wholesome ingredients.
