I’m so excited that it’s Spring!

The longer days of sunshine just put me in a good mood.

While I was blog surfing, I saw these beautiful bar cookies and I thought these would be the perfect spring treat.

These bars turned out to be really delicious and incredibly easy.

They were a lovely combination of lemony sweet and tart and I was surprised at just how wonderfully the coconut tasted in these bars.

It added an extra dimension of flavor and a nice textural element.

These are just the right treat to welcome spring!

Enjoy!!!
