SO GOOD!!! I love lemon and these are truly packed with lemon flavor. The coconut adds a nice touch, I really liked it in these bars. I used the lemon concentrate, it worked great. SO easy to make!! Done in about 35 minutes. I will keep this one in my tried and true file!! Thanks Mary!

This was so simple and quick to make and tasted delicious! I brought them to work to share and everybody thought they were as good as I did. Instead of lemon concentrate, I used the juice of four fresh lemons, and that worked fine.
