No-Bake Pineapple Upside-Down Bars




Yield 8 bars

These sweet, nutty, bars are the perfect morning pick-me-up or afternoon snack! Great for adults or kids, I recommend keeping a stash in the freezer at all times.


First Layer:

Second Layer:


  1. Layer a bread pan with parchment paper and sprinkle the 1/4 cup of dried pineapple evenly along the bottom. Then, sprinkle the flaked coconut over top.
  2. In a food processor, combine the chopped dried figs and coconut oil and blend until the figs are broken down and you have a soft paste, that is kind of crumbly.  Spread this evenly over the coconut.
  3. Now throw the rest of your ingredients in the food processor and blend until everything is well combined.  You'll be able to see some large crumbs leftover from the nuts and it should stick together; you shouldn't be able to see any more of the pineapple.  Be careful not to over process because the macadamia nuts will release oil and you don't want the mix too oily.
  4. Pour the macadamia pineapple mix evenly over the fig layer and use your hands to press very firmly all over the pan. 
  5. Place in the fridge for 20-30 minutes, then use a sharp knife to cut into 8 bars.  Store in the fridge and grab on the go!
