These bars are somewhat crumbly when you cut them up but since they are so delicious and full of flavours including chocolate, walnut, coconut and butterscotch overlooking a few extra crumbs is easy.
Put these on your holiday baking list to share with co-workers or take along to an upcoming get together. Hard to believe it’s holiday baking time…but seems Christmas isn’t too far away. Time to start making your holiday baking list!

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/3 cups flake or shredded coconut
