Gluten Free Coconut Raspberry Bars

Last night, I made this yummy dessert for my family. The original recipe I found at Deliciously Organic. I modified the recipe to fit our needs. It's still grain free, but not Paleo!





Ingredients

Crust
1 1/2 cups almond meal flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup organic butter, melted
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon coconut flour

Filling
Half a jar of Trappist Monks Red Raspberry Jam

Topping
3 tablespoon organic butter, melted
1 teaspoon honey
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
3/4 cup almond meal flour
1/2 shredded coconut (I used unsweetened, but you could use sweetened)


Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a 9 x 9 pan with parchment paper.
Mix the almond flour, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl. In a small bowl, mix the melted butter, honey, and vanilla extract together. Pour the butter mixture into the flour mixture. Mix. Dough will be crumbly, but moist. Press the dough into the pan.



Bake for 6-7 minutes.
While the dough is baking, prepare the topping. Mix melted butter and honey together in a small bowl. Mix almond flour and coconut together. Pour the butter into the flour mixture.



Take pan out of oven. Spread the jam over crust.



Top the jam with the topping crumble.



Bake for 20 minutes.
Take out of the oven and cool completely.
Cut into bars...they will be a little crumbly, but oh so good!



Till next time,
~Monique
