MY REVIEW

"Very disappointed in this bar cookie. Had zucchini, needed something for a bake sale but thought the bar lacked flavor. Even used choc frosting to help it - was not a hit."

"Awesome! I left out the walnuts. I'm not a big coconut fan but use it anyway and made a cream cheese frosting. It was a hit!"

"These are fabulous! I omitted the coconut & walnuts. I used whole wheat flour for an added healthy punch. Delicious!
