Quick to mix and quicker to disapear. I like to slightly underbake these for a more softer bar. Dont over bake or you will have rocks! For a really flavorful bar, toast the nuts and coconut in the oven while preheating...watch closely it will burn quickly.

This was a great recipe. It had a nice flavor and were soft with a nice texture (I underbaked them a little) However, I didn't have any coconut on hand so I used rasins instead, but the flavor was still great. I will make again.
