Ingredients

for the crust:

  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup cane sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter
  • 1 egg

for the filling:

  • 1 cup diced mango from 1 1/2 mangos
  • 3 tbsp cane sugar
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 tbsp all-purpose flour

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Add flour, sugar, coconut, baking powder, and salt to a large bowl.
  • Use a box grater to grate the butter into that bowl, then use your hands or a fork to combine. Then, add in the egg and stir. The dough should be wet enough to clump up when you squeeze it in your palm, but not sticky.
  • Grease an 8x8 baking dish with coconut oil, then transfer 3/4 of the dough to the dish, using your hands to press it down; set aside.
  • For the filling: add mango, sugar, coconut, and flour to a small bowl and stir to combine. Pour mango on top of the crust, using a spoon or spatula to spread it out.
  • Sprinkle the remaining dough on top of the mango filling, then place the baking dish in the oven and bake for 25 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown.
  • Wait at least 20 minutes after the bars are out of the oven before cutting them.

To freeze: wait for bars to cool before carefully placing them into a freezer-safe bag
To make vegan: use 1 flax egg (1 tbsp flaxseed meal + 2.5 tbsp water) and dairy free butter instead
