Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 6 minutes

Yield: 8 bars

These Tropical Granola Bars will get you in the summer mood. Made with desiccated coconut, dried pineapple, pureed banana and banana chips. They're also gluten and dairy free.

Ingredients:

  • 250g (2½ cups) gluten and dairy free oats
  • 90g (1 cup) desiccated coconut
  • 50g (⅓ cup) dried pineapple
  • 18g (scant ¼ cup) banana chips
  • 2 (heaped) tbsp chopped nuts
  • 175g (½ cup) runny honey
  • 105g (½ cup) coconut oil, in solid form
  • 100g (½ cup packed) light brown sugar
  • 1 banana

Directions:

  1. Prepare a 8x8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Peel and puree the banana with a small bowl using a fork, set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, add the oats, desiccated coconut, chopped nuts of your choice (I used walnuts), Set aside.
  4. In a small saucepan, add the honey, coconut oil and brown sugar and cook over a medium heat until bubbling. Allow to gently simmer for 6 minutes, stirring occasionally, then remove from the heat and pour over the dry ingredients.
  5. Mix well until evenly coated. If the mixture seems a little dry still add a little of the pureed banana, mixing in-between until the mixture binds together, but isn't too wet. It just needs the banana as a binding agent to ensure the bars don't crumble apart.
  6. Press the mixture into the prepared baking pan and even out using a spatula.
  7. Allow to cool to room temperature before transferring to the fridge to set completely. Once set, chop into bars and enjoy.
