Lime Coconut Crumbles

13 Apr

These lime crumbles are requested on the regular….they’re a favorite for two of my best fans. The sweet coconut combines with the tart lime to create a dangerously addictive treat. Once the limes are zested and juiced, this recipe literally takes about five minutes to put together. I recommend cooling, cutting and refrigerating the bars before serving. Y.u.m.

Lime Coconut Crumbles
makes about 20 bars/adapted from this recipe

Here’s what I used:

  • 1/2 cup butter (room temperature)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup coconut
  • 1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 teaspoon lime zest

Here’s what I did:

  1. Mix together butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
  2. Mix in flour, baking powder and salt into butter and sugar until incorporated.
  3. Add coconut and oats – I use my hands here….it’s easier to mix in the dry ingredients.
  4. Spray an 8 x 8 inch pan with Pam for baking.
  5. Press half of the dry mixture into bottom of pan.
  6. In a separate bowl, mix together the condensed milk, lime juice and lime zest.
  7. Pour lime mixture over the dry mixture in the pan.
  8. Spread the remaining dry mixture over the lime layer – covering entirely.
  9. Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes.
  10. Cool completely before cutting.
  11. Serve at room temperature or chilled (I prefer chilled!)
