the taste is great, but I have made this twice and both times it has turned out very gooey. I would like to know if anyone else has made this to know if theirs turned out gooey also.?

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add the first 3 ingredients to a saucepan; heat until chips have melted; set aside.
  2. In a bowl, mix together the oats, cake mix, and butter until coarse crumbs form (I use a pastry blender); set 1 cup of mixture aside and press remaining crumbs into an ungreased 13x9 inch baking pan.
  3. Spread apple mixture on top; sprinkle with cinnamon.
  4. Combine reserved crumb mixture with brown sugar and wheat germ.
  5. Layer over apple mixture.
  6. Bake in a 350° oven for 35-45 degrees; cool at least 30 minutes.
  7. Cut into squares.
