1 SQUARES Preheat the oven to 190 °C. Grease two 19 cm square baking tins with butter or margarine.

2 Sift together the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder. Add the oats, coconut and sugar and mix well.

4 Spoon the mixture into the prepared tins, pressing it down firmly. Bake for 20 to 30minutes or until done and firm but still soft.
