Yield

9 servings

Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup ground flax seeds (I prefer golden flax)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 cup orange marmalade

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Combine all ingredients except coconut and marmalade in a large bowl; stir until well combined (mixture will be crumbly.) Reserve 3/4 cup of mixture.
  3. Press remaining mixture into an 8-inch square baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 375 degrees F for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and carefully spread with marmalade. Sprinkle with coconut and remaining dough mixture, pressing mixture down slightly into marmalade.
  4. Bake at 375 degrees F for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely on a wire rack.
