This is another recipe that came from our recent trip to Hawaii. Passion fruit, or lilikoi, grows like a weed out there! Passion fruit grows on a vine and not only has some of the most beautiful and intricate flowers but some of the most delicious fruit as well! I knew I had to come up with a recipe while I was there and these Easy Passion Fruit Bars were a hit!

If you’re not in Hawaii, sometimes you can find passion fruit in the grocery store or in the frozen section. Fresh is always best, but frozen will work just as well for these special little bars. Here is what they look like, there are a few varieties out there.

Ingredients

Crust

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • cup powdered confectioners sugar
  • cup unsalted butter

Passion Fruit Filling

  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • ¼ cup + 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • tsp baking powder
  • cup passion fruit puree (with or without seeds, I like them with because they add a little crunch)
  • powdered confectioners sugar for dusting

Instructions

Crust

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Prepare your baking dish with non-stick spray.
  • Whisk the flour and powdered sugar together in a mixing bowl. Cut the butter into the flour mixture with a pastry cutter or your hands. Place the crust mixture into a baking pan (your crust will be thicker or thinner depending on the size of your pan). Press into the bottom of the pan and up the sides as much as you can.
  • Bake the crust in the oven for about 15 minutes, or until the edges are just starting to brown.

Passion Fruit Filling

  • While your crust is baking, whisk the eggs in another mixing bowl until fully beaten together. Add sugar one cup at a time and fully whisk in. Add the flour and baking powder and continue to whisk. Finally, add the passion fruit puree and ensure everything is well combined.
  • By now your crust is probably out of the oven. Once the crust is ready, add the passion fruit mixture and place back into the oven for another 30-35 minutes. It's done when the center is firm.
  • Remove from oven and allow the pan to cool until it can be placed in the fridge for at least an hour to cool and set. Dust with powdered sugar and enjoy!
