No-Bake Prune, Walnut & Coconut Bars

In a food processor, pulse walnuts until coarsely chopped. Remove half a cup. Continue processing the remaining walnuts until finely ground. With the processor on, add the prunes one by one, followed by a few pinches of salt and a dash of cinnamon. Process a few more seconds until combined. Empty mixture into a bowl and stir in chopped walnuts and 1/4 cup of the shredded coconut.
Line a small baking dish or container with parchment paper (I used a 4′ square dish).Press the mixture into the dish with your hands. Top with the rest of the shredded coconut, pressing it down gently. Refrigerate for half an hour and cut into pieces.
