A few recipe notes:

  • If you don’t have any coconut palm sugar on hand, you can use regular brown sugar instead.
  • Your glaze will seem really drippy at first, but, it will firm up as it cools.
  • Topping these with your favorite chopped nuts is a great option. Just be sure to add them before the glaze sets.
  • Want to add a bit more cinnamon flavor to your bars! Stir a handful of cinnamon baking chips into your batter before spreading it into the pan.
