Today I used took a couple of Coconut Almond bars and put them in the food processor and made a bread crumbs out of them. I took a breast of chicken pounded thin, salted & peppered. Dipped it in egg wash and coated it with the granola bar. I melted some coconut oil and seared it on both sides, and then finished cooking it in the oven at 350 for ten minutes. I will let this cool, slice it up, and serve this over a salad for dinner. It tastes and smells wonderful, and this would also work wonderfully on a nice mild piece fish like tilapia or sole. Flavorful and crispy at the same time.
