Bars are great to make for parties and events, especially when you are tight on time.
I made these just with the few ingredients I already had in the house for a 1 year old birthday party!
Unfortunately, Milo is too young to enjoy such indulgences, but one day...

I made these Gluten Free, using almond and coconut flour, if you would like to use white flour follow this recipe for the crust.
2 sticks Earth Balance butter (for vegans, otherwise regular)
1 cup sugar
1 cup almond flour
1 cup coconut flour
2 cups shredded coconut
1 cup chopped almonds
Chocolate Ganache Filling:
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
12 oz semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat the to 350
Grease a tart pan, I used 9 inch square. Anything about that size will work.
In a mixer, combine the butter and sugar until smooth.
Mix in the flour and then the coconut and chopped nuts.
Press 2/3 of the batter into the pan
Bake for 20 minutes
In the meantime, make the chocolate ganache
Warm the milk and melt the chocolate chips together in a double broiler.
Pour the chocolate mixture over the crust
Crumble the remaining batter over the chocolate
Return to the oven for 15 minutes
Cool on a wire rack
