Vegan Coconut & Almond Bars

I love coconut. I made a coconut cake recently that I will share anon but first these coconut and almond bars - they are lovely and sweet and chewy and full of good things. I overbaked mine so they turned out a little too golden-brown, so I have reduced the cooking time here. They were still delicious though!


75g ground almonds
75g porridge oats
50g muesli
150g dessicated coconut
75g brown sugar
half teaspoon salt
185ml soya milk
1 teaspoon almond essence


  • Preheat oven to 180C
  • Grease a baking tray
  • Combine the almonds, oats, coconut, muesli, salt and sugar in a large bowl
  • Combine the soya milk and almond essence and add to the dry ingredients
  • Mix thoroughly, and firmly press (with your hands) onto a greased baking tray
  • Cook at 180C for 25 mins, then raise temp to 230C for another 5 mins, or until golden-brown
  • Mark into 20 squares while still warm (I used a fish-slice)
  • Cool and eat!

Nuala, I just LOVE coconut too (I use gallons of coconut oil too, one of my minor obsessions etc etc!!) Is the almond essence necessary, or could you do without? I'm hoping o make these tomorrow... yum yum yum


Hi Ems, no the almond essence is not necessary. It can be a bit overwhelming as a flavour and did dominate these a little. G'luck! Post the results? N x
