Agen prune, walnut, and coconut bars

50 minutes


  • walnut halves, 150-200g (depending on the prunes, you may need more or less nuts to get them to bind)
  • 175g of Agen prunes
  • 18g of coconut flakes, or shredded coconut
  • desiccated coconut, 1-2 tbsp
  • 1 pinch of cinnamon, large
  • 1 pinch of salt, small


In a food processor, pulse the walnuts until coarsely chopped. Remove half of the walnuts. Continue processing the remaining walnuts until finely ground
Add the prunes to the nuts along with the salt and cinnamon. Process a few more seconds until everything is combined
Empty mixture into a bowl and stir in the reserved walnuts and the coconut flakes
Line a small container with cling film (I used a 4′ tupperware). Sprinkle some of the shredded coconut on the bottom of the container. Press the mixture into the dish with your hands. Top with the rest of the shredded coconut and press down gently so it sticks to the top
Refrigerate for half an hour and cut into pieces
