I've used rolled oats & desiccated coconut to bake some healthy delicious Banana oat breakfast cookies previously and we loved it. So when I saw this oaty coconut recipe, I know I must bake this too. What's more ... it's quick and easy ... minimal washing to do like the Chewy Almond Squares I've shared sometime ago.

Oaty Coconut Chocolate Chip Squares
Dry ingredients :
80g rolled oats
102g dark brown sugar (I reduced to 70g)
100g Chocolate Chips (I used 70g as that's all left in fridge)
38g desiccated coconut
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
Wet ingredients :
100g unsalted butter, melted
1 egg (lightly beaten)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Step 1 : Line a 20cm square baking pan with baking paper. Lightly grease with some butter, letting some excess hang over the sides.
Step 2 : Combine all of the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Beat together the butter, egg and vanilla extract then stir into oat mixture until combined using a spatula. Spoon into pan and gently smooth the surface.
Step 3 : Preheat oven to 180ºC. Bake for 25 minutes or until just firm.
Use the paper to lift from the pan onto a wire rack to cool completely before cutting into 16 squares. (can cut into bigger squares if you like) Store in an airtight container until required.
