      As the description says, these are great tasting! Actually they're awesome. I made them gluten free using cornflour and cornstarch for the crust and rice flour and cornstarch for the custard. Worked like a spell. There don't seem to be sweetened coconut flakes available in Germany, at least I've never seen them, so I used unsweetened, and it was still plenty sweet. Love the lime flavour. I used 2 8x4 inch pans and layered them with nonstick paper so I could easily lift the bars out of the pans. Thanks for sharing this yummy recipe!

      These are great and I'm pretty sure that even super picky DH is going to like them. I had everything on hand and really couldn't be happier with the bars. They have a nice sunny color so they are pretty and the ingredients are things that we like so how could this not be a hit! I took a tip from awalde and used my springform pan. It released well and a couple of the smaller pieces made ideal tasting samples. So good. Made for Culinary Quest 2014.

      Oh Ev, this is so delicious.<br/>I did not have a 9 inch square mold so I used a round 10 inch one (Springform) and the quantity was perfect.<br/>To cut into square I found the pizza cutter the best.<br/>We all loved it very much and we saved a few pieces for a present,<br/>My family was very happy I prepared this, as they knew you are chef even more.<br/>Hugs from us all!<br/>Made for Culinary Quest 2014.
