1 12x9-inch pan



  • 2 cups flour

  • 1 cup unsalted butter

  • ½ cup white sugar


  • 4 eggs

  • 1 cup white sugar, or to taste

  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 2 cups chopped rhubarb, or more to taste

  • 1 cup shredded coconut

  • 6 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  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.

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.
