These are from a cookie exchange and were so good!! Reminds me of coconut cream pie. Called Vacuum Bars because they get sucked up quickly!

Made for Make my Recipe Tag in the Aus/NZ Forum- used a gluten-free cake mix and coconut flakes in this recipe. Very rich and delicious. 4 cups seemed like a lot of sugar.......but followed the recipe and the bars were perfect. Photo also to be posted

Very satisfying cookie bar, & it definitely has an appropriate name! A nice change from those I make with either raisins or chocolate chipes in 'em! Will be making these again within the week as we have kids & company coming by on the weekend! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Newest Zaar tag]
