Lemon-Coconut Bars.

I’m craving coconut all the time. I’ve always loved coconut-themed desserts but lately I can’t help but daydreaming about coconut in all my waking hours. Before making today’s dessert, I had been looking everywhere on the internet to find the right recipe. It wasn’t easy. My favourite dessert bloggers do not offer anything on coconut to my taste, so I had to find other sources. That’s when I came across a recipe on Pinterest. I had basically ignored the existence of this community before, claiming that I didn’t need another thing to waste my precious time with. I have enough of that kind of addictions already…but then…it’s so pretty and user-friendly… and quite addictive. It’s still under control though…

It was exactly the recipe I was looking for! We practically devoured it in 24 hours. I’m currently looking for my next coco dessert. Maybe something with heavenly chocolate.

Recipe from Spiced.
