10 squares

If you’re not from Canada, there’s a chance that you may not have heard of this delicious treat that was named after the city in which it originated from! This three-layered bar is full of coconut and chocolate flavours, but one square can normally feel pretty heavy. So, I decided to recreate this treat in a healthy way that will leave you feeling just fine after eating a couple of squares! With raw, vegan and natural ingredients, you will be left with sustainable energy for the rest of the day! This recipe makes a small batch of squares, however, feel free to double up the recipe and make it into bars instead to substitute your regular granola bar.
