Apricot Crumb Bars

Makes about 14-16 2 x 3-inch bars

Use 9 x 12 inch-banking pan




2 C flour

½ C shredded coconut

½ C powdered sugar

¼ tsp baking powder

¼ tsp salt


1 Can coconut milk, solid part

4 Tbsp vegetable shortening

2 Tbsp lemon zest

1 C apricot preserves


1/3 C of the base dough

¼ C flour


  • Mix wet and dry ingredients separately. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix well. Once incorporated remove about 1/3rd C of the dough and set aside.
  • Lightly spray oil your baking pan, press in the base dough, then scoop on the apricot preserves and spread evenly on the surface of the dough.
  • For the crumbs, work the flour into the dough you set aside. Use your hands to break apart and crumble your dough. You can also use a knife to run through your crumbs in a chopping manner to make smaller and even. Take the crumbs and sprinkle on top of the preserve layer until evenly distributed.
  • Set your oven at 350 degrees and bake for 30-35 minutes. Crumbs will begin to lightly brown when ready. Set aside to cool before cutting. Cut out desired sized bars. Store in your fridge. Enjoy!
