Although moments like these are too cute, I always have a bit of guilt when they happen. Poor baby Micah had been fussing at me from her bouncy seat for about 10 minutes. Of course, I was in the middle of something else “important” and ignored her. When I finally went to check on her, she had given up on me and fallen asleep. Poor little baby just needed her Mommy to come put her in bed. Is that asking too much????

Coconut Lime crumble barsUsually, I’m in the kitchen when the child neglect takes place. Obviously, feeding the eight of us three meals a day requires a lot of time in my culinary factory. It is recipes like these bars that make my time there fun and interesting. If only Micah would have been able to enjoy them, I wouldn’t have felt so guilty about neglecting her šŸ™‚

coconut lime crumble barsI had to take a picture of the filling before I baked them. I thought it was so beautiful with the flecks of lime zest throughout. They taste just as good as they look. Strong and fresh from the lime and the crunchy, crumbling, coconut topping is perfect. They were a bit softer than I had thought, so I served them on a plate with a fork….which makes them just fancy enough for when we have friends over for dinner!

Coconut lime crumble bars are quick and easy to make plus loaded with a fresh citrus flavor!

  • Yield: 12 bars


  • 1/2 C butter, room temperature

  • 1 C brown sugar

  • 1 C flour

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/2 C oats

  • 1/2 C shredded coconut

  • 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk

  • 1/2 C fresh lime juice

  • 2 tsp grated lime zest


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9×9 inch baking pan with nonstick spray.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Add in the flour, baking powder and salt. Mix until everything comes together in a crumbly mixture. Mix in coconut and oats. The finished mixture will be dry and sandy. Press two cups of the mixture into the bottom of your prepared pan.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together sweetened condensed milk, lime juice and zest. Pour over the top of the oat mixture in the pan. Crumble all the remaining oat mixture over the top of the lime filling and bake for 30 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool completely before cutting. Keep in the fridge if you prefer them to be firmer.
