    WaterMelon's Note:

    Found the original recipe in King Arthur Flour's Baking Companion. I reduced the sugar content and I prefer them that way. You may also melt some chocolate chips and spread over the bars. You won't regret it!

      They are good and have the best after taste. They taste better after you eat them then while you are eating them. Soft ,but with very little coconut taste for the amount that is in the recipe.
