Lemon Meringue Pie Energy Bars

Ingredients

  • 2 cups raw cashew pieces
  • 1 + ½ cups big flake coconut
  • ¼ cup maple syrup, Grade A
  • 3 Tablespoons lemon zest
  • 2 Tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 Teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ¼ Teaspoon sea salt

Instructions

  1. Reserve ½ cup of the big flake coconut to add later.
  2. Place all the ingredients, except the reserved coconut into a food processor and pulse until the mixture starts forming a dough.
  3. Add the remaining ½ cup coconut and pulse until your desired texture is reached. I like to stop when there is still visible pieces of coconut.
  4. Line an 8?x8? baking pan with plastic wrap and pat/smooth the dough evenly into the pan.
  5. Holding the corners of the plastic wrap, lift the bars out of the pan and cut into 12 bars.
  6. Serve within a few days, or wrap and freeze for later.
