There can never be too many no-bake dessert recipes, especially when there’s coconut involved! These vegan coconut bars are irresistible, and they win the sweet-treat game with their healthier ingredients. Free of processed sugar, they’re made sweet with maple syrup and maca root powder. Maca root is a superfood adaptogen with a nut-like, butterscotch-y taste that plays well with other sweet and nutty flavors. Blend with cashews, coconut, sunflower butter, vanilla and lemon juice, then chill, cut into squares and sink your teeth in.
