I received this recipe from a friend,when I told her I wanted to make something for everyone at work. This was fantastic and a big hit at my job. I will definitely make these again--not only for work (though they keep bugging me for more), but for all occasions.

    Delicious bars! I changed the amount to fit an 8x8 pan, and tweaked the ingredients: 1 cup old fashioned oats 3/4 cup white whole wheat flour 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut (Bob's Red Mill) 1/2 cup brown sugar 1/4 teaspoon salt Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl, then add 1 stick of slightly softened (from the frig, nuked 10 seconds) unsalted butter - cubed. Pinch this all together with clean hands to make a mealy like texture. Pat 2/3 of the mixture into a parchment lined 8x8 pan. Spoon 3/4 cup good quality fruit sweetened jam over the bottom crumb layer within 1/2 inch of the pan edge. Top with the remaining crumb mixture, and another 1/4 to 1/3 cup unsweetened coconut evenly over crumbs. Bake as directed, keeping an eye on the coconut so it doesn't over brown. Yum!

    Amount, ingredients and process (no food processor).

    The food processor is a good idea--it makes quick preparation time of these delicious bars. I used Solo raspberry filling instead of jam. Mine were a little crumbly, so taking them out in one piece (as directed in step #15) was impossible. That didn't matter; the good taste is what counts. Thanks, veruca salt!
