COCONUT PECAN BREAKFAST BARS

INGREDIENTS
  • Coconut oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 banana
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • ⅓ cup coconut flour
  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 4 Tbsp coconut milk
  • ½ cup chopped pecans

* Side note – I have a Whole Foods near me, and they have a bulk section.  This is perfect to go and scoop out the coconut flour, for just what I need.  I know it can be expensive, so this is one way to do it, if you have a store near you, that has a bulk section and then its not so costly.

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Use the coconut oil to grease an 8×8 pan.
  2. Crack your eggs into a medium sized bowl and quickly whisk them up.
  3. Mash your banana – I like to just do this quickly on a plate – add to the bowl with the eggs along with the honey and vanilla.
  4. Measure and add your coconut flour, making sure to combine everything well and ensuring there are no clumps.
  5. Measure and add the unsweetened shredded coconut and coconut milk and mix to ensure the batter is well combined.
  6. Spoon the batter into your pan and smooth it out. Sprinkle the chopped pecans over top.
  7. Bake your bars in the pre-heated oven for 20-25 minutes. Keep an eye on them – when the edges are golden brown and the center is firm, they’re done.
