    justcallmetoni's Note:

    I was looking for a good bar cookie to add to my cookie tray that was suitable for Redneck Epicurean who was diabetic. We were partners in a holiday cookie swap and I was in awe of her cheerfulness even when she was in tremendous pain. She loved them and in her honor I am renaming this bar for her. Combining coconuts and walnuts with a faint hint of maple really appealed to me so I decided to give it a try as well as posting here for others as well as for future reference. According to the source this bar has 126 cal., 2 g pro., 10 g carbo., 9 g fat, 27 mg chol., 141 mg sodium.

      Tastes surprisingly good. Made with 2 T splenda, unsweetened coconut and left out the raisins to save on carbs. Didn't rise super high but has good consistency and great coconut maple flavor.

      Yum! These are really fantastic. I didn't have any raisins so I increased the Splenda by 1 Tbs., and I used pecans instead of walnuts. I used a margarine that I think is too salty so I omitted the salt. Next time I might be bad and drizzle some dark chocolate on top...

      These are good. I found the prep to be more like 10-15 mins. though. Also they came out a little dry for my liking but that might be because I used whole wheat flour? I will make again though as they are fairly healthy and tasty.
