Ingredients for Toffee Coconut Oatmeal Bars

What do I need?

To make Toffee Coconut Oatmeal Bars, you will need:

  • butter
  • brown sugar
  • granulated sugar
  • egg
  • vanilla
  • flour
  • baking soda
  • salt
  • quick oats
  • sweetened coconut
  • toffee chips

In some ways this cookie bar recipe is even easier than regular oatmeal cookies. No shaping the dough into balls or baking in batches. Just press the dough into the pan, bake and let cool.

When the bars are completely cooled, slice them into squares and serve. These decadent dessert bars pair amazingly with a glass of milk or a hot cup of coffee.

Can I make cookie bars in advance?

These Oatmeal Coconut Bars can be made up to a couple of days before serving. In fact, I find they get even chewier the next day! Make sure to store them in an airtight container to keep them fresh.

After cooling and cutting, you can freeze the bars for longer storage. Stash them in freezer bags and keep frozen for up to several months. Let the bars thaw at room temperature or in the refrigerator until you’re ready to enjoy them.
