Organic Shredded Coconut
- 1 cup organic “Old Fashioned Oats”
- 1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds
- 1/4 cup raw wheat germ
- 1/4 cup slivered almonds
- 1/2 cup finely shredded organic coconut, unsweetened
- 2 tablespoons olivio coconut spread
- 3 tablespoons agave nectar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 pinch cinnamon
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 7″x5″ baking dish and line it with parchment paper.
In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients together. Melt the olivio coconut oil spread and mix with agave nectar and vanilla. Pour wed ingredients over dry ingredients and mix well.
Press the oat mix into the parchment lined baking dish and press down to pack it firmly. Make sure you push this into the baking dish really hard to get it as flat and packed as possible.
Bake granola bars in the oven for 18-20 minutes. After removing from oven, gently press the bars down again with the back of a spatula.
Let cool for 20 minutes before slicing into bars. Cool completely before removing from pan and serving. Fair warning, these bars are a little bit crunchy and crumbly!
Store in an airtight container between layers of waxed paper.
(Makes 8 squares of granola bar snacks.)
