Ok this is my last no bake recipe, wait no this will be my last Lara bar recipe for a while! It is pretty warm (108) so I am trying not to turn the oven on but you know the 4th of July is coming up and I plan on doing a lot of baking. I am a very festive person I love to get in the spirit; I guess growing up not celebrating any holidays will make you go all out every chance you get.
I must get back to the Lara bars! I never have any almonds I always forget when I get to the grocery store, and food looks better with lots of color; so I decided to add pink dye to the bars to give them a little flare! It worked out great before I realized it, I was eating more then I should have and thought about going for a run. I decided to add shredded coconut to the bars and I am beginning to wonder if coconut is a nut, a seed, or just a fat. I have no clue if anyone could let me in on the truth about this interesting fat I will be the happiest women alive (literally)!
Ok! Ok! Let’s get to the recipe, but before I do make sure you like me on face book and follow me on pintrest I will be doing a giveaway soon!
