Magic Coconut Bars

For Cookie Base:

1/2 cup Almond meal

1/2 cup Coconut flour

1/3 cup Maple syrup

1/3 cup Coconut oil, melted

1/2 tsp Baking powder

1/2 tsp Baking soda

1/4 tsp Salt

1 tsp Vanilla extract

1 Egg

For Topping:

1/2 cup Coconut manna

1/4 cup Honey

1/2 cup Coconut flakes, slightly toasted

1/3 cup Chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life)

1/3 cup Nuts, chopped (I used walnuts)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, combine cookie base ingredients and mix well.  Spread evenly into the bottom of a greased or parchment paper lined 8x8 baking dish.  Bake for 9 minutes.  Pull from oven and allow to cool slightly while you make your topping.

In a microwave safe dish, combine coconut manna and honey.  Microwave on high for 35 seconds to soften.  Mix well and pour over cookie base, spreading evenly.  In a small bowl, mix together coconut flakes, chocolate chips and nuts.  Sprinkle mixture over base and gently press down with your fingers so the topping sticks into the manna and honey.  Allow to cool and cut into bars!
