Banana Coconut Walnut Bars Recipe

These breakfast bars are so filling, you won’t even realize you didn’t have a giant starchy breakfast. The protein and natural ingredients keep you energized and full all morning. And yes, it seems like the ingredient list never ends but I promise it’s an easy recipe! When I see a recipe with a long list, I immediately start with mise en place, which is a French culinary term that means getting everything in place before you start cooking. It’s very helpful to avoid being overwhelmed!
