    Muffin Goddess's Note:

    I made these in response to a request from a Colombian coworker for "something guava". Guava paste can usually be found in the international aisle of well-stocked grocery stores. You may find it in a wrapped bar as opposed to a large flat tin; I find that the canned product is better-tasting and more attractively colored than the stuff in the bar, but use what you can find.

      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.

      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.
