We had a Luau potluck over the weekend and these bars were brought by a friend. She got the recipe out of a church cookbook from Hawaii. These were served warm almost like an apple crisp and I think a scoop of ice cream would have been perfect...they were more like a dessert when served warm but more of a "bar" when cooled.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350*.
  2. Crust:.
  3. In a bowl, combine 2 c of the flour with 1/2 c sugar. Cut in 1 c of butter. Press into 13x9 pan. Bake for 7-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Set aside to cool.

  5. In a saucepan, combine mangoes with water, lemon juice and 3/4 c sugar. Cook for 10 minutes or until tender over medium heat. Combine cornstarch with 3 tbsp water and then stir into mango mixture. Cook until thickened. Cool slightly and pour over prepared crust.

Thought they were like Lemon Squares, but these have an oatmeal topping... DS said they tasted more like a cobbler.. very very good! I easily halved the recipe and it came out wonderfully! (not a dieter food, lol)
