  • 1 (16.25-ounce) package chocolate cake mix

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
     
  2. In a large bowl, combine coconut, oats, brown sugar, oil, water, eggs, and cake mix; pour into baking dish.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This are good, but like they look in the picture, they are rather dry crumbly.

these bar cookies using cake mix end up w/stiff dough but htey r yummy....used yllw mix to make date nut bars...never had problem

Is something missing? There doesn't seem to be enough liquid? It is so thick that it couldn't be poured.

I think since these are supposed to be bar cookies, the batter will be more like a dough.

I think instead of printing "pour" they meant press. I'm not sure because I haven't made this recipe yet but have made Bars in the past.
