Chewy Coco-Walnut Bars

With school year almost coming to an end, less homework and more fun times have started to set in. Two days ago, my daughter wanted to help with dinner. She wanted us to have the eggplant mozzarella sandwich like the one at Anderson's bakery, sweet potato fries and a healthy dessert. So convinced me to make the dessert and to keep my part of the deal, I made the coco-walnut bars.We did not have a recipe, so we added our own ingredients into the mixing bowl and kept note of the ingredients on the white board that my daughter loves writing on. It was a lot of fun and the bars turned out awesome. It was chewy for sure because we used brown sugar, had a macaroon like taste because of the coconuts, walnuts and oats added a lot of texture.She certified that it was blog worthy. So here I am sharing our crazy experiments, and in a way, documenting to revisit memories.

Aluminum Foil


Desiccated Shredded Coconut - 2 cups
Oats - 2 cups
Chopped Walnuts - 1 cup
