1. I am with you on the lemon. I did a whole week of “lemon in everything” on my blog recently, too. I can’t get enough of it in sweet AND savory dishes! 2. My husband and I are not fans of coconut. Any suggestions on a substitute for this particular recipe? Looking forward to giving it a try!
Stephanie Brubaker says
Oh, I will have to check out your lemon recipes! You can just leave out the coconut or swap in some white chocolate chips or dried fruit!
What a great recipe! These look so refreshing and tasty – I am going to have to give these a try.
These granola bars look amazing! Lemon and coconut is a great combination!

You cannot get enough of lemon, and I cannot get enough of coconut. Sounds like these are perfect for both of us!
