Coconut Granola Bars

These coconut granola bars are complex in flavour and texture, and are packed with nutrients.  They are both crunchy and chewy, and the chocolate and dried cranberries create a subtle sweet and tart flavour in every bite! Both pumpkin seeds and coconut contain healthy fats that may contribute to heart health.  Pumpkin seeds are also a great source of antioxidants and protein. This recipe is super easy to make and great for a quick breakfast or snack on-the-go!
