  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Mix 2 cups flour, butter, and 1/2 cup white sugar together in a bowl until crumbly; press into the bottom of a 12x9-inch baking dish.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until crust is light brown, 25 to 30 minutes.
  4. Beat eggs, 1 cup sugar, and 6 tablespoons flour together in a bowl until smooth; add rhubarb, coconut, lemon juice, and vanilla extract and stir to coat. Pour the rhubarb mixture over the crust.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until the fruit layer is set, 35 to 40 minutes. Let bars cool completely before serving.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • Depending on how much you like the taste of rhubarb, you can add more sugar or even less. If you don't like rhubarb add two cups of sugar.
  • The coconut can be a bit stringy so put into a food processor to chop into finer pieces, if you'd like. This option can also be applied to the rhubarb for a smoother consistency overall.

Though the crust was tasty, it was too thick for the amount of fruit - and I used 3 cups of rhubarbs and several cut up cherries. But it tasted good and the recipe has potential. Next time, I'...

I made this and loved it. I did the following: used Coconut Palm Sugar in the crust, white sugar in the filling, finely shredded coconut (the texture worked fine for my tastes), fresh squeezed l...

Delicious! Great crust, tart, fresh filling that set up beautifully for us even though we couldn't wait and cut slices right away. Our rhubarb was green too and we didn't have quite enough, so ...

I followed the suggestions and finely chopped the rhubarb and the coconut. Because I was taking this on a family vacation (where there was an oven), I did some prep work to simplify things in th...

This was quite good. I made this in a proper 9x13 pan, lined with parchment. It's a nice thick crust to support the topping. I'd suggest cutting the first bake of just the crust to 20 minutes...

I love lemon bars and rhubarb so had to try this. Followed the recipe as written except I did as someone had suggested and put the chopped rhubarb (~3\4” chunks) in the food processor and pulse...

I love this recipe, its an awesome way of getting rid of all your rhubarb, and it's so tasty!!!!!!

Lemon, coconut and rhubarb on a shortbread crust....YUMMY!!

These turned out very well. I did run the rhubarb and the coconut through the food processor as recommended and I don't think they'd have been as good if I hadn't. I only gave four stars inst...
