Mango Coconut Snack Bars - these nut bars are full of tropical flavors!

This week has been interesting to say the least. I was supposed to start a new day job on Monday and was also called for federal jury duty the same day. So the past few days I have been serving on a jury. It was my second time serving on a jury and I gained an even greater appreciation for those that serve on lengthy trials. Even though this case was only three days, it was far more mentality draining than the previous case I served. I am more tired than I am even after a long week of work. Luckily, I have these mango coconut snack bars to snack on during the day to provide a much needed boost of energy.

I finally start my new day job today and can get back into my normal routine. Among other things, I am looking forward to having a window in my office. I think it helps boost your mood when you can see the sunlight and beautiful weather outside. It also helps boost my mood to have a few snack bars available to snack on throughout the day.

Mango coconut snack bars are similar to the “Kind” bars that you can buy at the store. They are crunchy, nutty and slightly sweet. I added mango and coconut to give the bars a tropical flavor. These bars are easy and come together in little time.

Ingredients 

  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1/3 cup brazil nuts
  • 1/4 cup roasted and salted peanuts
  • 1/3 cup puffed rice cereal
  • 2 teaspoons ground flaxseed
  • 1/4 cup dried mango, cut into small pieces
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened coconut
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons brown rice syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • pinch of salt

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a large bowl and spatula with baking spray. Line and 8 x 8 inch baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Spread the almonds and brazil nuts in a single layer in the baking pan. Bake until toasted and fragrant, about 10 minutes.
  • Coarsely chop all of the nuts and place them in the prepared bowl. Add the cereal, flaxseed, mango, and coconut. Stir until combined.
  • In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, heat the honey and brown-rice syrup until it reaches 260 degrees on a candy thermometer. Add vanilla and stir. Pour the mixture over the nut mixture and stir to combine.
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared baking pan, and using the spatula, press the mixture into the pan so that it is even. Let pan sit at room temperature for 30 minutes. Cut into bars, wrap individually in plastic wrap and store in a sealed container for up to two weeks.

  1. The recipe sounds delish, love mango and coconut but why heat the oven to 350F if there is no baking involved? The recipe says to press them into the pan and then leave them on the counter for 30 mins. Thanks for the clarification.

  2. Ashley, Thank you for your response back. I was able to pull it up this time and looking forward to trying it out. Again, thanks.

  3. I don’t seem to be seeing your recipe for how to make the mango-coconut snack bars. Everytime I press a button it takes me to the picture and your having to serve jury duty. Could you please tell me how to pull up the recipe. I have used many other of your recipes and been pleased with them but frustrated that I seem to be missing on how to pull up the recipe. Thank you and I am so enjoying your website. Blessings to you.

    • Hi, Kathy! I apologize for the trouble accessing the recipe. There was a problem with the code on my site, but it is fixed so you should be able to see the recipe. Thanks for letting me know!

  4. How many calories in each bar?

  5. All of my fave flavors so I can’t wait to try these. Great idea!!
