I've mentioned my friend Melinda here and here. Melinda is an awesome cook and gardener, who just happens to be Australian. Her food is phenomenal, and I'm constantly telling her to start a blog. I still haven't convinced her, so until she does, I promise to share with all of you the outstanding recipes she passes along to me, which brings us to today's post. About 2 weeks ago, when I began my "one breakfast post weekly" plan, she shared her recipe for these delicious granola bars, or slice, as she refers to them. The original recipe has dessicated coconut rather than the angel flake variety, but I had none in the pantry, so I reduced the amount of sugar from 2/3 to 1/2 cup and just went with the angel flake. I did process the coconut along with a bit of flour, as some of the staff have a coconut texture issue. I love that this is one of those quick to make and quick to bake items, and it really is perfect with a cup of tea or coffee. Feel free to use other dried fruit, chocolate chips, or nuts. It's a dandy little breakfast bar!
