Honey Coconut Pecan Bars

Honey Coconut Pecan BarsThese delectable, honey-sweetened coconut and pecan bars will remind you of pecan pie, only with a graham cracker crust.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour - divided use
1/2 cup cold butter or margarine
3 large eggs - divided use
1 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup shredded sweetened coconut
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped toasted pecans

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 13x9x2-inch baking pan; set aside.
  2. In food processor with metal blade, combine graham cracker crumbs, 1 cup flour and butter; pulse to combine. Mixture should resemble coarse meal. Add 1 egg and process until dough forms a ball. Press dough evenly into prepared baking pan.
  3. Bake for 15 minutes, until crust is set and lightly browned. Allow to cool.
  4. In medium bowl, combine remaining 2 tablespoons flour and 2 eggs with remaining ingredients until thoroughly blended.
  5. Pour mixture over cooled crust and bake at 350°F (175°C) for 30 to 35 minutes, or until topping is firm and golden brown.
  6. Allow to cool completely. Cut into squares.

Makes 24 bars.
