Tropical Pineapple Bars

This month’s Baking Bloggers topic of the month is Brownies and Bars.  These will make great lunch box treats to send to school or work. I wanted something that could work as dessert for a Tiki party so I chose Tropical Pineapple Bars as my recipe. 

Tropical Pineapple Bars are a spin on Lemon Bars. I swapped the lemon juice for pineapple juice. The flavor is mild but delicious. These disappeared in my household very quickly and did pack well as a lunch box treat.
