Pineapple Coconut Bars

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, stir before measuring

Filling:

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, stir before measuring
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 cup Organics Unlimited coconut, flaked
  • 1/4 cup fresh Organics Unlimited pineapple
  • 3/4 cup toasted chopped macadamia nuts, almonds, or pecans*

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 350°.

Blend crust ingredients together well; pat into a greased 9-inch square or 10 x 7-inch oblong baking pan. Bake crust for 10 minutes, until just barely browned; set aside.

Sift 1/4 cup flour with baking powder and salt. In a mixing bowl, beat eggs with brown sugar; stir in flour mixture then coconut, pineapple, and toasted nuts. Spread topping mixture over the baked crust; bake 25 to 30 minutes, until set. Cut into bars while warm. Makes about 32 bars.

*To toast nuts, spread out in a single layer on a baking sheet. Toast in a 350° oven, stirring occasionally, for 10 to 15 minutes. Or, toast in an ungreased skillet over medium heat, stirring, until golden brown and aromatic.

Great for snacks, desserts, and impressing your guests!
