Chewy Chip Squares

Chewy Chip Squares
1 cup all-purpose (plain) flour
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 butter or hard margarine, softened
2 large eggs, beaten until frothy
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 Tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup butter or hard margarine, melted
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease or line a 9x9 inch square pan.
CRUST: Mix all ingredients together well and press into prepared pan.
TOPPING: Beat eggs, sugar, and flour together. Add remaining ingredients. Pour over crust. Bake for 30-35 minutes until just set, do not overbake.

These are some tasty squares my mother made. The base is chewy and enriched with oats and coconut, and the top is a bit sticky, chocolaty and satisfying. The recipe comes from a Company's Coming series cookbook.
