Blueberry & Coconut Bars

Ok. I think I can safely say, that, as of now...these may be my favorite bars that I have made to date. I would have never thought of this combo without a little directional pushing from this contest. Thanks is all I got to say. And seeing as I normally am not a coconut fan, that is saying something. Oh my word, I greedily ate way more than my share of these yummy bars. So thanks for the extra weight. Well, actually these have blueberries which automatically qualifies them as a health food, right? I mean...


1 box yellow cake mix
1 Small box instant coconut pudding
1/4 Cup water
1/2 Cup vegetable oil
2 Eggs
1 pkge fresh blueberries(about 6 oz)
1/2 cup shredded coconut
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Combine cake mix, pudding, water, vegetable oil, eggs and blueberries in a large mixing bowl.
Pour the batter  into a greased 10x13 baking dish. Top with the shredded coconut. I sprayed it with non spray cooking oil and I have also used parchment paper.
Bake your bars for 20-25 minutes (if you want them a little crispier, you could cook for 30 min)
You want it to still be slightly gooey in middle, but if the edges are browning, it is just about right.
I would just recommend watching it, my mom has an electric stove and I have gas and they cooked differently.
Cool for about 20 minutes and cut into squares. And if you are like me, you will steal up the corners. They are just the best part, no arguments allowed. Well, actually, I suppose you can argue, as that leaves the best for me;)
