Oatmeal Coconut Bars

If you can figure out some way to make the crust less crumbly, then this recipe would be the perfect treat. I end up slightly freezing it after baked, then cutting it into bars and wrapping them up before they dethaw. I suppose I could try a different crust.

From the back of the Sunspire Vegan Carob Chips Bag:

1 1/2 cups uncooked oatmeal
2 Tbsp. melted margarine or vegetable oil (I use oil)
1/4 cup maple syrup

1 cup carob chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
1 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix oatmeal, maple syrup and melted butter or oil together thoroughly. Press mixture evenly over bottom of lightly oiled 8-inch square baking pan. Stire together carob chips, nuts, coconut, maple syrup, and vanilla. Spread evenly over oatmeal crust. Bake for 25 minutes, until golden brown. Remove from oven and let stand until cool. Cut into bars and enjoy!
