    Deliciously Moist! I did need to alter the recipe, as I only a can of apple pie filling. No apples within 25 miles of where I live. I added two eggs and a touch more oats, only half a cup of brown sugar. Still nice and sweet and super moist!! Keeper for sure!

    These were very good and so moist. I used 1 tsp of maple extract and 1 tsp of vanilla.. This is a keeper. Thanks for posting this recipe.

    I loved the texture of it (oatmeal and coconut), and three apples are a must. I cut back on the sugar from 1 1/4 to 1 cup, but it was still a bit too sweet for me. Maybe my apples were too sweet (mixture of gala, golden delicious, and can't remember the other one) so I may try it with tarter ones. I also used unsweetened coconut. I did not have maple extract so I used 1 tsp of vanilla. Tasted just right.
