coconut oat bars and sandcastles

  Yet another attempt at bar baking guys. I guess this is more of a healthy granola snack more than anything considering it contains flax, coconut and oats.  I was going to go the chocolate route and add some bits of dark cocoa goodness but I opted out. I decided that coconut and oats was all I needed. Who says I can't make another batch with chocolate?  No one.
I made some changes but I got the recipe from here.

 This weekend I ventured down to the CNE (Canadian National Exhibition) and saw some pretty cool things I think I should share.  Did you ever make sand castles when you were a kid? I bet they never looked anything like this:


These are some pretty awesome sand carvers!

Your coconut bars look so delicious and would definitely feel healthy enough to let myself have a good couple! I love these sand sculptures - how cool would it be if that could be a permanent job? :)

I was going to say exactly what Gine said! Coconut and oats are so delicious together and these bars look healthy too!

It's amazing what people can create with sand. I love the first picture with the woman's face rising out of the flames.

Mmm I like coconut! I like that they are 'healthy' treats too!
LOVE the sandcastle sculptures, I bet they require loads of patience!

Coconuts and oats? Perfect. I would have to keep a bunch of these hidden away at work for snacks! :)

I was just starting to think about making granola bars, wondering what to put in them... And man, does coconut sound like the perfect addition! Thanks for the inspiration. :)
