This week's recipe (source: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Beckys-Oatmeal-Carmelitas/Detail.aspx?prop31=2) is a cookie bar.  Gooey caramel sandwiched between layers of oatmeal crisp.




I snuck in some coconut into the crust.

Did I mention that the caramel covers morsels of dark chocolate?




I modified the crust with the addition of an egg and substitute vegetable oil for butter.


 


Results:

The crust was still a little crumbly but it turned out to be very gooey and chewy.  I really like the addition of coconuts.  In fact, I like this bar so much, I had 2 servings immediately.  Someone take these away from me before I eat them all.
