DIY Coconut Cream Pie Nutrition Bar

Print

I mix these DIY bars for my son and his friends, often ahead of time. (they freeze well) This version tastes like coconut cream pie and contains a little bit of healthy coconut oil, which growing boys, and mothers, really need.

They’re my favorite grab-to-go snack, you’ll often find one in a zip lock inside my tote. And SO much better than some of the supposedly healthy bars out there

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

I would recommend saving this bar for the days you know you might not get a chance to eat a proper breakfast, lunch, or dinner. At almost 400 calories a piece, a whole coconut cream pie bar would work well as a meal replacement (for emergencies only!), or you could opt to eat half for a hearty snack.
