Wheatless Wednesdays: Gluten-Free Coconut Cookie Bars

July 10, 2013

Chocolate chip coconut cookie bars are a gluten-free, dairy-free treat that will be a household favorite.  Sweetened shredded coconut is combined with chocolate chips to create a moist cookie that you just can't have one of.  Instead of sweetened condensed milk, a homemade dairy-free version is created with almond milk, agave nectar, an chia seeds.
