I can’t believe it is the last week of August. Where did the summer go? We are excited for September because our due date is September 24th. We have less than a month to go! We are also looking forward to Labor Day-which is this upcoming weekend. Hopefully, it won’t be my Labor Day-we are excited to meet our little guy, but he needs to stay put for a little while longer:) We always have a barbecue on Labor Day and this year I am making Lime and Coconut Crumble Bars for one of the desserts.
These bars are special because they have a thick crust and crumble topping. A crumble topping is always a bonus in my book. The bottom layer and topping are made with butter, brown sugar, oats, and coconut. The middle layer is made with sweetened condensed milk, vanilla extract, lime juice, and lime zest. The lime filling is thick, creamy, and tart.
The bars are simple to make and remind me of key lime pie. No wonder Josh loves them-key lime pie is his favorite dessert:) He had a hard time waiting for me to take pictures of these bars. He kept trying to eat the one I was shooting. I eventually let him dig in:) He didn’t even leave me a bite!
If you are looking for an easy dessert to serve at your Labor Day party-make these Lime and Coconut Crumble Bars. Lime and coconut lovers will devour these refreshing bars.
