Coconut Lime Pie Bars

Sunday, March 12, 2017
Coconut Lime Pie Bars are one of those desserts that makes you go back for more. Refreshing, delicious summer flavor with lime and coconut. A real tropical treat that's a nice change from the all time favorite lemon squares. If you're a lime enthusiast you will love these!

Two Great Tropical Tastes



These are one of those desserts where you can't believe how easy they come together when baking.


I look at the texture and the decadent pudding that it makes and just am amazed.


I love the fact that coconut and lime go so great together.


If you want a taste of the tropics this will do the trick!

Lime Bars instead of Lemon!



We pretty much all have tasted lemons bars.



I made one here in sunny tropical Florida, a lime version of those buttery crusted bars that everyone loves. Whether you use key limes or regular the taste of the tropics awaits you!



This little tropical treat is much like the old fashioned lemon bars but with a twist of lime and coconut, welcome to paradise!

Made with just a few ingredients



I love that these have very few ingredients in them.


You can whip up a batch in no time just keep a bottle of lime juice on hand.


I always keep my coconut in the freezer so it stays fresh, so I have it all year long.

Taste Like A Lime Pie


Key Lime Pie is huge in Florida and all the down through the Keyes of Florida.


These little pie squares are a quick little lime pie treat, just a little lime craving put to rest until you can vacation there.

Dessert with a little Twist



I know everyone has seen those lemon bars all over the web, but I love lime!


I even order lime for my water when we go out to eat in a restaurant with my dinner.


That's why I adapted this recipe to a Florida Tropical little lime gem.


This are refreshing and delicious!

If you're not a lime and coconut fan?



No worries, you can substitute orange or lemon.


Actually you can use any citrus juices, I even used pineapple once to make these Coconut lime bars.


If you can get Keye Lime juice in your area, it's my favorite, but you can just use regular lime too when not available.


They bake evenly, make their own magical pudding in the bar all in one pan!


How simple is that? I like to line my pan with parchment for easy removal.


Just be sure to cool completely before cutting them!
