If you guessed that I was making Seven Layer Bars, then you were right!
I’ve always wanted to make these and when Swanson Vitamins approached me with an offer to try out some of their products for free, I immediately added the Swanson Certified Organic Unsulphured Coconut Shreds to my basket!
The first step for Seven Layer Bars is to toast the coconut.
Holy moly. The entire house smelled SO wonderful after just 4 minutes toasting in the oven. Even Mike who’s not a huge coconut fan remarked “What smells so good?”
I toasted a small amount extra so I could get a taste on it’s own and my oh my was it good. It’s funny because I’m not usually big on coconut by itself, but the toasting brought out the natural sweetness and added a slight crunch to it.
I definitely want to do this over oats one time!
Thanks so much again for sending Swanson! I now have another food to add to the cycle
And as always, please remember that if YOU are interested in getting some free Swanson Health Products goodies to review on your own blog, then check out the Swanson Health Blog for all the details.
After the coconut was toasted I gathered up the other 6 ingredients:
Using this recipe (followed exactly) I added each layer to the pan and in 25 quick minutes I had these babies:
These came out a bit more sloppy than I was hoping thanks to a sticky pan, but that didn’t change the amazing taste of them ONE bit!
I’m definitely going to be making these again soon!
