WOW. I was trying to duplicate the very addictive Sheila's Dream Bars from Potbelly, and these are EXACTLY what I was looking for! I made a few tweaks and they were to die for. I added a couple tablespoons of water to the crust mixture to hold it together. I substituted milk chocolate chips for the coconut (personal preference), and used half pecans and half walnuts. Fantastic, a definite keeper!! NOTE: This recipe DOES NOT double well. I learned that the hard way! :( It also seems to set up better in a stone crock than a glass dish.

They're not even close to Sheila's Dream Bars at Potbelly Sandwich Shoppe but have to say that they made a yummy recipe anyway! Our family likes that they are sweet and salty (the crust gives you the salty). I did add 1 cup chocolate chips and liked that.
