TROPICAL BAKED OATMEAL SQUARES :)
I created this recipe from a Baked Oatmeal recipe-- that featured applesauce and didn't have Bisquick in it (I replaced 1/2 C of the oats with Bisquick)-- I however, really like the cake like texture it has now-- it holds together enough so you can pick up a square and eat it by hand. You can also bake these in a muffin tin-- use some of your (super healthy) coconut oil to oil the muffin cups!

4In a large bowl combine dry ingredients: shredded coconut, Bisquick, oats, sugar, baking powder.
5Pour wet ingredients into the dry and using a spatula, blend it all together. Once all ingredients are incorporated-- pour into your prepared pan.
