Coconut Bars (with Variations)


Simple, slightly chewy bars for coconut lovers.  Great for kids' lunch boxes. The base recipe is just coconut, eggs & salt.  To this base you can add "seasoning" and "chunks." Good combinations of the two are: Vanilla extract and mini chocolate chips (decadent). Ground cardamom and raisins. Curry seasoning and golden raisins. 

Super easy

Coconut Bars (with Variations)
Preparation time
Cooking time


For 12 Dozen(s)


  • 2 eggs
  • 1 pinch(es) fine sea salt (to taste)
  • 2 cup(s) unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 teaspoon(s) seasoning (to taste)
  • 0.5 cup(s) chunks (to taste)

Coconut Bars (with Variations) Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a 9x9 pan with coconut oil.
  2. Whisk egg, salt and "seasoning" (can be vanilla, cardamom, curry, lemon zest...  whatever your imagination wants to try) together.
  3. Add coconut, mix well, and cover bowl with a plate.  Let sit while oven heats up.  This allows coconut some time to absorb moisture from eggs.
  4. Mix in desired "chunks."  Can be mini chocolate chips (recommend the Enjoy Life brand), raisins, golden raisins or other dried fruit.  Again, there is room for imagination.
  5. Press coconut mixture into pan.  Bake for 20 minutes or until starting to turn golden.
  6. Let cool, cut into squares and enjoy!

Recipe notes

 Orange zest and dried cranberries.

Use your imagination!
