However before we discuss these coconut cassava bars, without a doubt a bit about myself. I am originally from Freetown, Sierra Leone (exactly like Bintu!) but I live in NY with my husband where I am a graduate college student. I love cooking very much and I discover myself generally in the kitchen whipping up something delicious. I talk about my favorite formulas and baking tips on my blog. Oh, I likewise have a deep obsession with sneakers and crispy pork belly fried collect several too many than the hubby will like. But hey, a woman needs her sneakers.
Ok back to these coconut cassava bars we’ve here. Perhaps one of the most well-known starches in Sierra Leone is certainly cassava (tapioca). We appreciate it in various ways; from using the leaves inside our well-known Cassava leaves to drying grated cassava to create gari”, a grain we cook as rice occasionally. Then when Bintu asked me to share a Sierra Leonean-themed formula with you guys today, I knew I wanted to include cassava inside it somehow. Another one of the best things from your home can be new coconut we get being through the tropics. I came across a way to combine these two components in these coconut cassava bars.
The bars are made up with a wedding cake base that’s soft, flavorful and chewy! Utilizing a combination of cassava, condensed dairy and coconut milk, the wedding cake base is very moist. The pubs are topped using a dense coconut level that hair in more flavor. Oh do I talk about these pubs are gluten-free too? Yes, delicious and good for you!!
I hope you enjoy them and also have a taste of this Sierra Leonean inspired dessert!! Bintu, many thanks quite definitely for allowing me go out here today.
Happy Holidays!!

I used freshly grated cassava and it worked great
You can find macapuno in specialty stores such as for example your Asian market. If you fail to find (which I couldn’t), you should use sweetened coconut flakes.
