Vegan Baking Adventures

I plan to make these Oatmeal Bake Tiki Squares to take with us when we go out of town.  Served with fruit, they will make a great breakfast treat or snack.  I cannot remember where I got this recipe, but it was off the internet.  I made slight modifications to it because my family is not a big fan of coconut. I hope they are good!
