Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 10-inch square baking dish and set aside. Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine. Stir in the butter, then add the milk and stir again.
Add the eggs, stir to make sure they are well combined. Add the pineapple and 1/2 cup coconut. Stir and then pour into the prepared dish. Top with the reserved 1/4 cup coconut.
Bake for about 40 minutes, until the edges have browned and the coconut is very lightly toasted. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
I've made this oatmeal in 9-10 inch square pans, as well as 9x13 pans. The larger pan simply results in shallower baked oatmeal. Watch the baking time according. A 9x13 pan will bake in about half an hour and a smaller pan will require a little longer, about 40-45 minutes.
