This a recipe that I am going to have to redo. I was in a hurry, didn't read the recipe right and over-baked it. However, I think it has potential to be a great dessert. Things I would do differently: not skimp on the crust....make a real one instead of a cheater graham cracker one; remember to write down the temperature and time for baking instead of winging it....this was the biggest failure of this baking adventure; use a liquid sweetener instead of brown sugar; and finally use shredded, sweetened coconut instead of unsweetened flaked coconut....it was really the wrong texture for this. I think the pie should have had more of a chess pie texture, but my results were way off. I am not writing this recipe off, though, but will try again using the following recipe.
3/4 cup pure maple syrup or other liquid sweetener
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 unbaked pie shell
Mix filling ingredients and pour into pie shell. Bake for 1 hour at 350. Cool before serving.
