Good stuff! I took a batch of these to serve after our church Nativity, and they went down a treat! The bars were of a cake-like consistency, and somewhat crumbly on top. I omitted the coconut, as our pastor is allergic to it, but they were delicious nonetheless! (Mine took only 30 minutes to bake.) Thanks for posting!
