NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • Gluten-free cooking spray
  • 3/4 cup sliced raw almonds
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped raw pecans
  • 1/3 cup gluten-free rice cereal
  • 1/4 cup brown rice syrup (see Cook's Note)
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Grease a 10-by-5-by-3-inch loaf pan with gluten-free cooking spray. Line the pan with an overhanging piece of parchment paper to easily remove the bars.

  • Place the almonds, coconut, pecans, cereal, rice syrup, molasses, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl. Stir to combine and evenly coat. Transfer the coconut mixture to the prepared pan and, using a greased piece of parchment paper, press down firmly to spread evenly. Bake until just firm, about 12 minutes. Let cool completely on a rack.

  • Reduce the oven to 250 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and place a wire rack on top. Remove the coconut bar from the pan and cut evenly into 6 bars. Place, gooey-side up, on the wire rack. Bake until almost dry to the touch, about 15 minutes. Let cool completely on a rack.
