Coconut Orange Breakfast Bars – JennifersKitchen

Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free, Oil-Free Coconut Breakfast Bars

One thing I do not do:

Spend more than 10 minutes in the morning preparing breakfast. When it’s breakfast time, I want to eat – not measure, stir, cook, chop, or bake.

That means that make-ahead breakfasts are a regular part of my meals. Preparing breakfast ahead of time means that either my crockpot or my freezer always has something delicious waiting for me in the morning.

Like these Coconut Orange Breakfast Bars.

Naturally sweet, these Coconut Orange Breakfast Bars are packed with both flavor and nutrition. And they’re freezer-friendly, so you can have a stash in the freezer for whenever you need a quick breakfast (which, for me, is every morning).

About Date Sugar

What is date sugar?

Date sugar is a whole food that is made from dried dates that have been thoroughly ground. It has not been refined like other sugars which means it still contains all of the fiber and disease-fighting antioxidants of the whole date.

Date sugar is a perfect whole-food sweetener for use in baked goods or hot cereals.
