Just like oskri (coconut bars)

I am really picky when it comes to bars (even at the health food store), but I LOVE oskri coconut bars!

I searched all over the net and couldn’t find any recipes that were anything at all like them. Oskri has two ingredients: dried coconut & rice syrup

So how hard could it be? Simple, but we use honey.

Just like oskri (coconut bars)

What you will need:

1 cup honey
4 cups shredded coconut
butter/coconut oil
optional:
2 tsp almond extract
other dried fruit
seeds

How to do it:

Step 1: Mix all ingredients in a medium sized bowl.

Step 2: Line an 8 by 12 baking dish with parchment paper.

Step 3: Press blended ingredients into dish (put butter on the palm of your hand and fingers so that you can press without the honey sticking to your hands).

Step 3: Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 10-12 min.

Step 4: Let cool down significantly.

Step 5: Cover and freeze and then slice into bars while still frozen.

Step 6: Store bars in the fridge.

Enjoy!

      Other than organic dark chocolate, I enjoy Lara bars but that is pretty much it…I hate bars with protein powders in them-ew yuck!

    Thank you thank you thank you!!! I have been looking for a recipe to replicate those bars all over the place!

    Did the honey held the ingredients well? Im asking because I make my own bars and have found that rice syrup does the trick. I use organic brown rice gluten free and no GMO made in usa.

      They hold well as long as they are baked on parchment paper, otherwise they stick to the pan (no matter how much you grease it)!

      I made this recipe last weekend and well, they hold together ok. I keep them in my fridge and bring a bar to work to snack on mid-morning and they are already falling apart… but tastes the same so I don’t mind. I am going to try baking them longer next time.

        You can also roll them into balls if they don’t hold up well!

    What type of honey do you use? I find that the honey flavour is overpowering and the bars are almost too sweet to my liking… Wondering if it could be the type of honey I use.

      Since honey is sweeter than rice syrup it is definitely sweeter than the Oskri ones that are made from rice syrup…you could try reducing the honey 1 Tbsp or 2 to see if they still hold together!

    I added ground flax seed to add some more nutrition. It also helped them hold together.

      Great tip Stella!
