Coconut Lime Bars

CoconutLimeBarsPlated

I am on vacation this week and I am sharing 3 tropical recipes! Yesterday I shared how I make shredded coconut and you can use that shredded coconut in this recipe. Now I love Larabars, they are so yummy and great for when you are not at home and hunger strikes but they are not exactly cheap. And while Larabars are Paleo friendly I still prefer to make my own food at home, that way I know how it is prepared and I know exactly what goes into it. Making your own at home also allows you to customize your bars and add your favorite ingredients.

These are my tropical bars that conjure up my favorite tropical flavors. I like mine straight from the freezer for a cool and refreshing treat. Enjoy them all summer long!

Ingredients:
½ cup raw cashews
½ cup raw almonds
12 medjool dates, pitted
1 cup shredded coconut
zest and juice of 1 lime
Line an 8×8 pan with parchment paper.

In a food processor add the cashews and almonds and process until it develops into a fine meal, about 30 seconds.

Add in the dates, shredded coconut and lime zest and juice and process until a crumbly mixture is formed. This takes about a minute or 2, so be patient. The dough will be sticky when done.

Scoop the dough into the pan and use hands to press down evenly.

Place in freezer to set for 1 to 2 hours.

Once set, take out of the freezer and cut into squares.

Store in an airtight container in the freezer.
