The promise of spring was in the air today. I walked Kai without a real coat on, opened the windows, and ran outside without a hat! After all of the snow we got this year, it is a welcome change.
I wanted to make something healthy but filling. I find that as the weather gets warmer and I spend a little more time outside, I feel hungrier! I found an idea for Vegan Coconut Bars a blog I have been following, http://citronlimette.com/ .
I changed a few things around to make them more of what I wanted. The recipe was simple and I had fun making them with the fresh spring air blowing in the apartment!
The taste of finished coconut bars reminded me of a British lemon tea cookie. They are sweet in a natural way and the lemon provided a refreshing zing. The consistency was more like a Luna Bar. They are more doughy than crumbly. These vegan coconut bars make a great breakfast bar or anytime snack.
