use 1/2 cup oatmeal instead of coconut and add 1/2 cup peanut butter flavored chips and these bars are fabulous !!!! Great easy recipe !!


A yummy treat, but nothing really special. They were enjoyed, but not raved about. These were definitely gooey as the name states, but I thought they could have had a stronger flavor. There's a faint peanut butter taste. I really only got texture from the coconut - not really any taste. I really liked the taste of the bottom layer, but thought the top needs more of a flavor burst. I'm curious to see if others alter this a little and how so.


I tried this today and did it in a 13x9 pan. After reading the other reviews, I added 1 extra tbsp of peanut butter and 1 tbsp of flour to the syrup mixture, baked for the requisite amount of time and they came out perfectly.
