Incredibly Easy Bars From Delicious Coconut

This produces two loaf tins which cuts into about 18 - 24 regular shaped bars or if sliced diagonally produces about 10 - 16.

Just Add Prepare
• 1 1/2 c dessicated coconut

• 1/4 c good quality vegetable oil

• 1/4 c sugar

• 3 beaten eggs

• 1/4 c self raising flour

• Preheat the oven to 360F/180C

• Combine all the ingredients together till smooth. Pour into two non-stick loaf tins

• Bake for 10 minutes and not a minute longer and you'll see that it's a lovely golden brown

• Remove and cool on a wire rack

• Slice into bars of about 8 to 12 bars from each loaf. If you slice them diagonally as I've done in the pictures, each coconut loaf will produce only 8 full bars

Store the bars in an air tight container in a cool location but not in the refrigerator. The fridge tends to dry them out.


To save time and effort, use only silicone or non-stick bake ware. Otherwise take care to line your baking tins and grease the parchment or baking paper sufficiently so that the bars don't stick.

Save the crumbs or off cuts from the diagonal slicing and serve for dessert tossed with freshly cut fruit. Pour custard over the delicious coconut and fruit mess.
