Lara-Like No Bake Coconut Chewy Bars

I love making my own healthier version of  products that I enjoy. Lara Bars have a great coconut cream bar but they are less expensive to make at home and a fun simple kitchen creation to make with the kiddos.

These bars are no-bake and setup in the freezer and make a great snack for school lunches, or before or after school. They are gluten-free, raw, and packed with protein and nutrients.
