Pineapple Coconut Bars - The Southern Lady Cooks

These pineapple coconut bars are so easy to make and absolutely delicious. If you love the combination of pineapple and coconut you will love these. These are made in an 8X8 so it’s not a huge amount which is great for a small gathering or if you just want something sweet. If you love these you will also love this pineapple loaf cake!

Pineapple Coconut Bars Ingredients Needed:

Pineapple tidbits

Shredded coconut (sweetened or unsweetened, your choice)



Baking soda



Powdered sugar

These bars only take about 30 minutes so they are definitely a quick treat. Perfect for any gathering. We top them with powdered sugar but they are honestly good without it too. The top forms a crust and they are soft on the inside. It’s important to really drain the pineapple, I like to put it in a strainer/colander and then use a fork to press out any liquid.
