Gluten Free Coconut Bake

Gluten Free Coconut Bake, a photo by gluten-free trini on Flickr. I tried to make Coconut Bake a few days ago. Coconut Bake is very popular in Trinidad and Tobago. I used to eat this a lot and I missed it a lot so I had to try and make a gluten-free and dairy-free version. They tasted okay but I didn't like the flour that I used. I will try making this again and I'll upload a recipe for it.

This is the first time I've ever made these Oatmeal Coconut Bars. They were very simple to make. I love coconut and oats so I decided to combine them. The bars taste great and my family also enjoyed them ^_^.
