Gluten-free chocolate chip coconut bars |
Mondays are hard. I made you some treats! Truth be told, I made two batches of these in the span of one week. Whoops. I guess it could be worse. These treats are on the healthier end of the treat spectrum (Treat spectrum? Totally a thing, yes?), although, as with any treat, you I should probably eat them in moderation.

Gluten-free chocolate chip coconut bars | tinyinklings.comAlmond flour forms the base of these cookie bars. In with it goes sea salt, baking soda, and cinnamon. For the wet ingredients, we combine, an egg, some coconut oil, a bit of honey, and vanilla extract. Yum! Coconut shreds and dark chocolate chips join the party at the end. A cameo appearance if you will. A quick 15-minute bake in the oven and I dare you to not cut into these while they’re still cooling in the pan. Oh, and P.S.? Crossfitters will be happy to hear that these treats are PALEO! Cookie beast mode. No? Okay. {Recipe after the jump}
