  4. Add some banana slices then top it with another half piece of granola bar
  5. Meanwhile, heat the chocolate chips, coconut extract and coconut milk or whole cream in the microwave for 45 seconds
  6. If you are using the toasted coconut, add it to the chocolate once it has warmed

Get creative with your own bars and add in some other sliced fruits that you like. You can easily sandwich them between the two granola bar halves. You could even use almond butter instead of peanut butter. If you are like me and love strawberry freezer jam, then you may want to add some of that as well.
