Since I had plenty of apples I wanted to use, I doubled the chopped apples, and halved the coconut. In addition to the cinnamon I also added 1/4 tsp ground cloves. Delicious!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter, add the sugars, and stir. Add baking soda, salt, baking powder, vanilla, cinnamon, and beaten eggs. Mix well. Then add the oats, chopped apple and 1 1/2 cups flaked coconut. (Reserve 1/2 cup of flaked coconut for on top.) Add the flour and mix it all throughly.
  2. Grease a 9-inch by 13-inch cake pan. Spoon the dough in and smooth it with a rubber spatula. Sprinkle the 1/2 cup coconut you reserved evenly on top.
  3. Bake at 375 degrees F. for 25 to 30 minutes, or until slightly browned on top.
  4. Let cool and cut into bars like brownies.
