       2 c  Chopped pitted prunes               1 c  Whole wheat flour
       1 tb Grated orange rind                1/3 c  Wheat germ
     1/2 c  Water                             1/2 c  Coconut, flaked or shredded
       1 c  Rolled oats                       1/2 c  Vegetable oil
  
   Cook the prunes, orange rind, and water in a saucepan until the
