I was looking for a good bar cookie to add to my cookie tray that was suitable for Redneck Epicurean who was diabetic. We were partners in a holiday cookie swap and I was in awe of her cheerfulness even when she was in tremendous pain. She loved them and in her honor I am renaming this bar for her. Combining coconuts and walnuts with a faint hint of maple really appealed to me so I decided to give it a try as well as posting here for others as well as for future reference.



  1. Preheat oven 350 °F.
  2. Using a mixer, beat eggs, splenda and maple flavoring in medium bowl.
  3. Blend in in margarine and vanilla.
  4. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in small bowl.
  5. Stir into egg mixture.
  6. Fold in coconut, walnuts, and raisins.
  7. Spread batter evenly in greased 8-inch square baking pan.
  8. Bake until browned and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 20 minutes.
  9. Cool in pan on wire rack.
  10. Cut into squares.
