After finding coconut without traces of peanut / tree nut, I was anxious to find recipes to start baking with it. I found this one -- really easy and really yummy. They have a very chewy texture and a nice caramel flavour.

Coconut Bars


1/2 cup butter or margarine
2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 cups coconut

1. Melt butter or margarine in pan, remove from heat and add brown sugar, stir until dissolved, cool slightly.
2. Add eggs and vanilla.
3. Beat well.
4. Stir in flour and baking powder.
5. Mix thoroughly and add coconut.
6. Pour into greased 9X13 pan.
7. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes and cut while warm.

Here's another one I just came across. I haven't tried it but it was appealing to me since there are no eggs in it:) NOT RECOMMENDED! (See below)

Ethansmom - where did you find safe coconut?

Heffalump Rumpledoodles

1 cup rolled oats
1 cup flour
1 cup coconut
1/2 cup raisins
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
1 Tbs. baking soda
2 Tbs. Molasses
1/2 cup unsalted melted butter
2 Tbs. boiling water

Preheat oven to F. 350. In large bowl, combine all ingredients. Spoon rounded Tablespoonfuls of rumpledoodle dough onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 10-15 minutes. Cool on wire rack.

Mygirlsyd, I discovered from AnnaMarie that Dalton's brand is free of peanut / tree nuts - when I contacted them about where I could buy their products, they advised that they also produce the coconut for Sobey's "Our Compliments" and A&P / Food Basics "Equality" store brands. You can see our previous discussion here: http://www.allergicliving.com/forum/vie ... ht=coconut

Your recipe looks delicious, and much healthier! I'm going to try yours this weekend - I'll let you know how it turns out. Would you be able to make a substitution for the eggs in the recipe I posted?

Sorry to say but those Rumpledoodles were terrible!!
mygirldsyd, could it be that the baking soda measurement should have been 1 teaspoon instead of tablespoon? That's all we could taste! :?

I'm so sorry they didn't turn out. I copy & pasted the recipe - 1TBSP does seem like a lot.
Again - I'm really sorry - thanks for letting us know though.

No worries...it's not your fault. As I was sprinkling the tablespoon of baking soda, I was saying to myself..."this does seem like a lot"...
At least I got a good laugh as I watched my husband spit his mouthful into the garbage :lol:
Just thought I'd post in case anyone else wanted to try them out.

Too funny - reminds me of the time when I was in high school and my dad (who is NOT A COOK) and I planned to make a peanut butter cake for my mom for her birthday. I specifically told my dad to wait until I got home from my part-time job... which of course he didn't.

When I walked in the door I could smell something baking. "Oh no..." I thought. For some reason I just knew things wouldn't go like they should. And sure enough, the cake started flowing over the top of the pan... It kept rising and flowing and rising and flowing... "What did you do?" I asked my dad.

"I don't know - I followed the recipe. 1 tsp of baking soda, another tsp of baking soda, this and that..."

"Wait a minute," I said, "2 tsp of baking soda? It says baking powder here".

"Baking powder, baking soda... what's the difference?" said my all-knowing dad. :roll:

And sure enough, he'd left out the baking powder and doubled the baking soda. And that's about all you could taste in that cake!!

LOL, Karen! It sounds like something right out of a sitcom!

I notice a lot of people mix those two ingredients up, that and condensed milk and evaporated milk.

Not a recipe, but a very cute idea to use coconut on cupcakes to make a Santa face! Perfect for this time of year:
