Step 1: Ingredients

15 ounce Yellow cake mix

1-1/2 cups old fashioned Oats

3 eggs (2 eggs in the crust and 1 egg in the filling)

14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk

7 ounce bag grated coconut

20 ounce can crushed pineapple

6 ounce bag Macadamia nut pieces

1 stick butter

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 cups powdered sugar

12 ounce bag white chocolate chips

Step 2: Crust

Place 1-1/2 cups old fashioned oats in the blender and blend for 15 seconds, until the oats turn into a flour-like consistency. Mix together the cake mix, oatmeal flour, softened butter and 2 eggs. Stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla.

Combine with a pastry blender or fork.

Set aside 1/2 cup of the crust mixture for topping.

Press the mixture into the bottom of a greased 11" x 15" cake pan.

If you don't have a 11" x 15" cake pan, place 2/3 of it in a 9" x 13" pan and the rest in a 8" x 8" square pan.

Step 3: Filling

Drain the juice from the crushed pineapple and set aside.

In a bowl, mix the can of sweetened condensed milk, crushed pineapple and a large egg.

Stir until combined.

Pour mixture over crust.

Step 4: Topping

In a large bowl combine the white chocolate chips, coconut, macadamia nuts and 1/2 cup of the crust mixture.

Spoon over the filling and spread evenly.

Step 5: Bake

Bake in a 350 degree pre-heated oven for 40 minutes.

Step 6: Glaze

While the cookie bars are cooling make the glaze:

In a bowl, place 2 cups powdered sugar. Add 3 tablespoons of the reserved pineapple juice.

Stir well with a fork until all lumps are gone.

Drizzle over baked cookie bars.

Cut into bars and enjoy!
