Filling
1 cup feijoas, flesh scooped out and roughly chopped (about 6 medium)
1 Tbsp soft brown sugar
1 Tbsp flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Base & topping
150g butter, softened
1/2 cup soft brown sugar

To add to the topping
1/4 cup coconut threads
1/4 cup rolled oats

Method
Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan bake.

To make the base, in a medium-sized mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar with an electric beater until creamy and pale. Add the egg and continue beating until smooth and creamy. Sift in the flour and add oats, coconut, cinnamon and ginger. Mix well until combined

Line a brownie tin or similar (20cm x 20cm) with baking paper and press down 3⁄4 of the mixture, leaving the remaining mixture in the bowl to use for the topping

To make the filling place feijoas, sugar, flour and cinnamon into a small bowl; stir well to combine and then spread mixture over the base

To make the topping, add the remaining oats and coconut threads to the mixture left over from the base and mix well to combine. Use your hands to crumble this mixture over the feijoa layer
