Rave reviews from kids and parents alike, even those who haven't had guava before. I use the food processor for the crust ingredients. I have used both the canned and vacuum bagged guava with equal results. I cut the guava (which is like sticky solid jam) in little cubes and distribute them on the crust. Easy and delicious. Alot like date bars but with a surprising 'tropical' flavor.
Loved it! Had Guava paste in my pantry and needed to use it. Found this recipe by searching the net, and its a keeper! Just sweet enough and not so bad for ya either!
These bars are awesome. I made them for my daughter's communion and everyone LOVED them. I've already made them twice. GOYA makes the guava paste. You can find it at latin markets.
These are delicious. I made them for a Caribbean environmental fundraiser last year and they were such a hit, I've been asked to make them again.
This recipe should come with a warning. They are so good I don't want to share them with the kids. I followed the recipe exactly and it came out great. I will make it again and again.
These were fantastic!! Thank you so much for this recipe. I could only find a can that was 1-1/2 #'s, and I used the whole thing. I liked the generous layer of fruit. Guava was a great filling, because it doesn't have an overpowering sweetness. Make sure you really press the crumb mixture well since it is a drier crust as you will see. Also I only baked for 25 minutes because my oven has a tendency to burn. Also I forgot to line the pan with foil and they turned out just fine.
This sounded awesome and I just HAD to give it a try. I'm a sucker for anything tropically flavored. I followed the instructions to the T and the bottoms came out burnt to a crisp. I think my oven's temperature is off and so I will have to try this a second time at a lower temperature. I'll leave an update at that time. By the by, the not burnt parts tasted awesome!LOL
Oh, I loved these! I have had guava paste in the pantry for a while and had no idea what recipe I was supposed to make with it, so when I saw this I knew I would have to try them. They are great! So easy to make too. I served them to the in-laws and they loved them too. Made for the Babes of ZWT4.
Yummy! Because my children would recognize the appearance of the oats, I "milled" them in my food processor. Our dinner guests, and our children, LOVED these! Will definitely make them again. In fact, my friend requested the recipe and I quickly printed off a copy for her!
Love these -- they are soooo good!
