    pinch of sea salt
  • ·

How to Make Macadamia Coconut Cookie Bars AKA Hawaii 5-O bars

Step-by-Step

  1. Grind dry ingredients. Mix honey, hot water and vanilla. Blend into dry ingredients (at this point, you may have to mix it all by hand if your mixer isn’t real efficient). Shape into bars, cookies or lightly press into a buttered muffin tin. You can also press the batter into a dish (about one inch deep) and cut into squares. Sometimes these are better when allowed to dry. Adjust the water/honey ratio for less or more sweetness. Keep refrigerated (they’ll still last a week or more out of the refrigerator). For other flavor options, use fresh lemon instead of cocoa, or use more coconut.
