  1. Preheat oven to 175C and grease a loaf tin with coconut oil.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, rolled oats, desiccated coconut, baking soda and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together applesauce, coconut oil, coconut milk, maple syrup, golden syrup, egg and vanilla extract.
  4. Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and tip the wet ingredients in the centre. Mix ingredients together until just combined- the batter will be thick. Gently fold into apple pieces.
  5. Make topping by combining rolled oats, desiccated coconut, golden syrup and coconut oil in a small bowl.
  6. Pour batter into prepared baking tin and sprinkle with topping.

Bake in oven for 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean from the centre. After 25 minutes, tent with foil to ensure top doesn’t get too brown. Remove from
