“See, THIS is why it pays to be friends with a food blogger!!! Uh, I mean sisters with one!!” My sister, Penny’s, reaction when I mischieviously and happily gave her a box of treats over holiday vacation. 🙂
The thing is, as a food blogger, I’m always getting requests for baked goods: cookies, cakes, bars, bites, free chocolate chips, muffins, free peanut butter and more. For some reason, my family thinks I get a bunch of free edible goodies that they’d be “happy” to take off my hands.
They’re quite the classy bunch, I tell ya. 😉 J/k, love you guys! … For FREE!
Well, do you guys remember my 5 Ingredient Homemade KIND Nut Bars? To my surprise, they’ve done really, really well: on Facebook, the ol’ blogeroo, and Instagram. Some folks have told me they’ve made them over 10 times! And yes, I’m unbelievably proud. 🙂
Well, literally the second my sister saw that recipe, she was like, “so… my favorite KIND bar of all time is the Coconut & Almond KIND bar.”
Me: Oh, that’s cool!
Penny: Yeah, it’s really, really good!
P: And the flavor is just incredible! It’s so simple: just coconut and almonds.
Me: That is simple!
P: Yeah, so…
P: And I saw that lots of your readers commented that they’d be VERY happy if you shared a 3 Ingredient Homemade KIND Coconut Almond Bar recipe.
P: So… could you…
M: You know what would be a great idea? I just came up with this!! Like, all by myself. How about I make a 3 Ingredient Homemade KIND Coconut Almond Bar recipe? What do you think? Is that too unexpected?
P: YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS!! And you’re so creative!!!!
Just kidding! I totally did not say that it was all my idea. Haha. But Penny would’ve rolled with it, secretly thinking that she was so clever in inception-ing me (as Erik calls it). She was pleased as a peach when I told her I might consider it. No promises, even though I would love to give her the world. Sometimes, recipe testing is unexpectedly curveball-filled and I don’t like to make promises I can’t keep.
But this time, it all worked out!
Phew! Now tell me, what’s your favorite KIND bar flavor? I might just take a stab at it, even though that expression totally spooks me out. My plan is to create the most epic of homemade KIND bar recipe roundups! So far I also have Homemade Dark Chocolate Sea Salt KIND Nut Bars. If you try those too, let me know what you think!

- 1 cup unsalted almonds
- 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
- ¼ teaspoon salt (optional)
- ¼ cup pure maple syrup
- Preheat oven to 325°F. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
- Add almonds, coconut and salt (if using) to a large bowl. Stir until well mixed. Pour maple syrup over this mixture. Fold until well incorporated.
- Pour this mixture into the prepared baking pan. Using a rubber spatula, press down on mixture and smooth into a tightly-packed, even layer. Bake for 28-38 minutes (mine took 33 mins). Bars must bake thoroughly, or they won’t hold together when cooled.
- Allow to cool for 1 hour (or until completely cooled), in the pan on a cooling rack. Pinching opposite ends of the parchment paper lining, lift bars out of pan. Gently peel parchment paper off the bottom of the bars. Slice into 12 bars (6 rows by 2 columns). Enjoy! Storing instructions below.
- Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up 1 month.
- Nutrition Info: is an estimate based on 12 total bars, with no salt used.
