Chocolate Coconut Breakfast Bars

This is a recent find of mine from and I think it's gonna stick.  It's a bit decadent, but there are so many good things in there that I know we're getting wholesome food, too.

Lot's of protein from eggs and nuts, fiber from whole wheat flour, wheat germ and oats and yummy-ness from chocolate and coconut....mmmmm.

Cream butter and sugar

mix in dry ingredients

Press into a 9x13" pan

Mix eggs with walnuts, coconut and chocolate chips...

and spread over crust

Bake at 350F til edges start to brown, cool on a wire rack.  Enjoy!

Chocolate Coconut Breakfast Bars

1 c butter, softened
1 c packed brown sugar
1 c oats
1 c ap flour
1 c ww flour
1/2 c toasted wheat germ
4 eggs
2 c chopped walnuts
1 c coconut flakes
1 c mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350F. In a mixing bowl cream the butter and sugar.  In another bowl combine the oats, ap & ww flour and wheat germ, add that into the butter sugar mixture and combine.  It'll be a bit dry, press it into a buttered 9x13 baking dish.  In a mixing bowl beat eggs, add in walnuts, coconut and chocolate chips and mix.  Pour that over the crust and bake for 30 minutes or til edges start to brown.  Cool on a wire rack, then cut into bars.  Enjoy fresh or freeze for later use.
