Recipe: Pret A Manger Coconut Bites

Pret A Manger is a hit with Brits looking for a lunchtime bite to eat, and happily there are four branches here in Dubai. In even better news the coffee shop chain is now releasing recipe ideas to keep us going at home.
If you’ve already made the astonishingly chocolatey dark chocolate chunk cookies (you can find the recipe here) and Pret’s choc bar (click here for that one) we now bring you the popular coconut bites.

Not only are they super-tasty, they’re vegan too.
