Dreamy Strawberry Coconut Bars

A super Easy and Buttery Crust topped with Strawberry Jelly and finished with a Coconut Crumble.

Happy Wednesday, you guys. How about some yummy bars today? Since I apparently can’t get enough of berries and coconut, I just had to combine the two into one tasty treat. That’s what summer will do to me :).

I hope you’re on board with my current obsession because I can’t see an end in sight. There’s something about the beautiful weather that makes me go crazy for anything containing the naturally sweet taste of berries.

Not only do I love the combination going on here, but the fact that these are super light and therefore easy to devour, makes for one dreamy dessert.

My husband is the one who actually inspired these bars. Believe it or not, he isn’t the biggest chocolate fan and would go for anything containing fruit instead. I know – it’s pretty crazy, huh? And he loves my homemade jelly that I make and freeze every year for us to savor until strawberry season comes around again. And that’s exactly what I used for the middle layer in these – strawberry jelly. Mmmmm. You could totally swap out jam or any other fruit preserves you prefer, of course.

The important thing is that you give these a try :).

I am sharing more of these bars and the recipe at Chef in Training today. I would love for you to head on over! I promise I will be back with a longer post and more awesome deliciousness soon. In the meantime, please enjoy these bars and celebrate the fact that the weekend is almost here again :).

XOXO.

  1. You had me at coconut crumble! I wish I liked fruit more than chocolate 😉 I think this recipe has won me over though! Pinned!

  2. These are so pretty, I can almost taste them. I can’t get enough of the fruit/coconut combo right now either, must be something about this time of year!

  3. I’m with your husband, I don’t tend to go for the chocolatey desserts, so this is SO up my ally. Everything about it from the strawberry to the coconut to that crust looks amazing!!

  4. These look amazing Kathi! I think you bake the best looking desserts out of every blog I follow. For real! I want to cook and eat everything!

  5. these are so great, Kathi. Love the crumble!!

  6. so yum Kathi!! this is reminding me of a more indulgent nutri-grain bar with coconut weaved in – looks fabo!

  7. Given my love for strawberries and coconut, I am definitely trying these! I wish I had one right now for an afternoon snack!

  8. Boy oh boy oh boy!!! These bars are simply amazing!!!!! I will have dreams about them.

  9. Ok so I made these last night and they taste amazing. I had problems tho. I used dark brown sugar instead of light (thats all I had) and it gave the coconut a burnt look. It made the crumble so hard that once it was done with the jelly it was hard to cut out the pan into bars. I think I will use parchment paper next time but I am afraid that it will stick altogether even with the sides greased as instructed 🙁

  10. These look so good! I love a buttery crumble topping!

  11. Made these with some of the fresh strawberry jam I just made that day!! Ahhhhmazing! The crust was so buttery and flaky. Yum! Got up at 4 a.m. to have a bite as it called my name. Lol.
