Like little green divas, pistachios are hard to coax from their shells. They’re flashier in color, higher in price and can rock a recipe like no other nut. So get crackin’! These better-for-you oatmeal bars are packed with pistachio power and free of processed ingredients, giving you a nutritious grab-and-go breakfast or healthified anytime treat.

1/2 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup shredded coconut
