Mango CocoNUT Bars!

IMG_8782

It’s Day 19 of the Whole30, and I’m feeling GREAT!!!  I need to spend some time this weekend writing a little more about this journey – I’ve been a busy bee, and maybe I’ve been up at like 5:30am and doing crazy workouts.  #tigerblood if you’ve done Whole30 before!  🙂

Larabars have been a lifesaver on Whole30 because if you’re crazy busy then it’s a good grab and go snack that is approved – well, some of them!  🙂  I’m assuming the one that I invented today is approved as well.  It gets 2 thumbs up and 5 stars in my book!!  It’s a quick, easy, flavorful, ALL NATURAL snack!!  (Just try not to eat the whole batch – I dare you.)  Whether Whole30 or not – give this a go!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup of dates
  • 1/2 cup of dried mangos
  • 1/2 cup of almonds
  • 1/2 cup of cashews
  • 1/2-1 cup of coconut

Directions 

  1. Take the pits out of the dates, and place the dates and dried mango in a cup of warm water.
  2. Once the fruit has softened, put the fruit, almonds, and coconut in a food processor and process until it sticks together.
  3. Line a baking pan with parchment paper, and press the fruit and nut mixture into the pan. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  4. Cut into 6 bars and enjoy!
