This one comes from www.elenaspantry.com.  I just happened to hop on her site and it was the featured recipe. It looked so good i was inspired!

I just had a bite – really good. BUT – they would be a lot better had I used the right coconut milk…meaning, canned coconut milk, not the stuff you normally drink. Way to go, Shasonta.

Overall, this is a great recipe…my way made the bars a bit more fluffy, Elena’s way will make them more dense. 🙂

Glass half full, this is what I’m telling myself. HA!

Enjoy – but with the right coconut milk. I have no idea what I was thinking…
