Recipe Notes

Coconut Palm Sugar

If you don’t have any on hand, it can be replaced with regular brown sugar. However, the nutritional information in the recipe card may be different.


Same goes for the flour. Regular white flour can be used in place of the whole wheat version.

No Food Processor?

A blender, pastry cutter or using two knives will also work.


Ours is of the mixed berry variety, but, any flavor will work. Go with your fave!

  2. If I wanted to bake this in a 8 x 8 or 9 x 9 pan, how much longer would I need to bake it? I want a slightly thicker bar. Thank you.

    1. Hi Monika- -I haven’t baked these in a smaller pan, so, I can’t say for certain. However, I think adding 5-8 minutes would be a good place to start. Please let me know how they turn out!

      1. Thanks for replying. One more question: Would all-purpose flour work in the same amount? Thanks!
