 Mango Crumb Bars make for the perfect summertime dessert


2 1/2 cups Ripe mangoes
3-5 tbsp Granulated sugar
1/2 tbsp Corn starch
2 cups Flour
1/2 tsp Baking powder
1/4 tsp Salt
1 cup Coconut
3/4 cup Unsalted butter
2/3 cup Brown sugar
1 large Egg
1/2 tsp Vanilla extract



  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Add flour, sugar, coconut, baking powder, corn starch and salt to a large bowl.
  3. Use a box grater to grate the butter into that bowl, then use your hands or a fork to combine.
  4. Then, add in the egg and stir. The dough should be wet enough to clump up when you squeeze it in your palm, but not sticky.
  5. Grease an 8x8 baking dish with butter, then transfer ¾ of the dough to the dish, using your hands to press it down and set aside.
  6. In a bowl, add mango, sugar, coconut, and flour to a small bowl and stir to combine. Pour mango on top of the crust, using a spoon or spatula to spread it out.
  7. Sprinkle the remaining dough on top of the mango filling, then place the baking dish in the oven and bake for 25 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown.
  8. Wait at least 20 minutes after the bars are out of the oven before cutting them.
