Recipes   Sweets    
Ingredients
  • 1 cup flaked coconut
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • ½ cup pecan halves
  • ½ cup sunflower seeds
  • ¼ cup grassfed collagen powder (optional but helps hold them together better)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • ¼ cup butter
  • ⅓ cup Swerve, Confectioners
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. In a food processor, combine the coconut, almonds, pecans, sunflower seeds, collagen powder, and salt. Process on high until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs in texture.
  2. In a large microwave safe bowl, melt the peanut butter and butter together until smooth. Whisk in the Swerve and vanilla extract. Add the coconut mixture and stir until well combined.
  3. Line a 9x9 or 8x8 inch pan with parchment paper with overhanging edges for easy removal. Transfer the mixture to the pan and press firmly and evenly into the pan. Cover with another piece of parchment and use a flat bottomed measuring cup or glass to smooth it out and really press it together firmly.
  4. Refrigerate 1 hour. Lift the bars out using the overhanging. Cut into 16 bars.
  5. Store in the refrigerator.

Makes 16 servings.

    Thank you for this recipe! Looks amazing! I'll be trying it asap!

  • Julie

    This is a great recipe thank you. I did change a couple of ingredients as I don’t like shredded coconut. I was wondering if it is freezable and how long it lasts in the fridge? Cheers

    • Swerve

      Hi Julie, Thanks for giving the recipe a try! These should freeze well. They last in the fridge for about a week.

  • Joan

    These are amazing. I added some cinnamon and nutmeg and just a few stevia sweetened chips to this. I eat these as a fast and quick breakfast while I head out the door or as I work at my computer with a cup of coffee. YUMMY!!

    Is "collagen powder" another name for unflavored gelatin???

    • Swerve

      Hi Patricia. Thanks for the question. No, collagen has a different texture than gelatin but you can leave out the collagen in this recipe.
