Fabulous as expected. I used mostly oats and only a little coconut due to personal preference and a mix of raspberry and crabapple jelly. Addictively delicious !!! made for Everyday is a Holiday.
These are incredible!! The rich flavors of the butter and (unsweetened) coconut are perfect with the sweet-tart raspberry jam; and the oatmeal and coconut add wonderful texture! They are also very pretty and festive! I made the recipe as written, except that I used whole wheat pastry flour (which worked fine). These went over so well at my house that I had to go the the health food store to stock up on unsweetened coconut--so I can make more for Christmas! Thanks for a great recipe, Boomette!!

Unbelievably yummy!! Have made these twice now, once with the coconut as stated in recipe (dried coconut here in France is exceptionally dry and absolutely not sweet in the least, so ours did not have a problem there, as reviewer sam found) and the second time with flaked almonds and half the jam used was apricot. Found that raspberry is by far superior in these, but equally liked both the toasted coconut and toasted flaked almonds. Thank you so much for the recipe, will be making these regularly as soon as the weather goes cool again!
Brought these to my sister's yesterday and was loved by all. I made a double batch cause I knew there was no way a single batch would be enough. A few agreed with me that it was too sweet though.
very good, I made the flour mixture in a processor using frozen butter cubes, also I thought I had raspberry preserves but I only had strawberry so that is what I used and it turned out great, thanks Booms!
Simply delicious. These bars are quick to make with wonderful results. I wish I had doubled the recipe because they won't last long. Made for Photo Tag.
Made these for a group I host each month, & was glad I'd set aside a couple just for myself, 'cause the rest were gone in no time at all! ABSOLUTELY GREAT TASTING! Next time I make these I want to make a double batch & freeze some ~ Will certainly be keeping this recipe in my files! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Every Day Is a Holiday]
