Recipe Corner: Coconut Breakfast Bars
Recipe by Cornelia Sabrina, @Cornelia_Sabrina on IG
We all have the days where there is no time, or maybe you just hate to eat breakfast super early but don't have time or the opportunity to eat a full meal at work. This is the perfect on the go breakfast bar with balanced macros and a good amount of protein you can refuel after a workout or just get your day started with a balanced on the go breakfast. Feel free to use a sugar free syrup alternative instead of maple syrup if you would like to cut out added sugar that doesn't come from fruit. I absolutely love these for a sweet mid day snack and love the cakey light texture. If you prefer it more firm I would suggest to skip the baking powder and you can re-toast the bars after you prepare them for the week if you prefer it warm. Let's get baking!
