WOW! These are great. They are more like dessert than breakfast. I cut the brown sugar down to 1/2 c. and they were still plenty sweet. I also omitted the salt. I thought they turned out great. I used apricot jelly and pecans. Thanks for a great recipe.

I used pineapple preserves as we thought that would compliment the coconut really well. They were pretty good but a bit too sweet for breakfast, I though. Make sure you cut them while warm since they get pretty hard when cooled completely.

I reviewed this too early I just tried one and they must not have been cooled enough before when I rated it earlier. Now they came out the pan as bars and the taste is good as I rated earlier.
