These blondies are nothing like I have ever tried before. They are extremely filling a rich. These are extremely quick to make but taste like it took hours. The chocolate and coconut complement each other extremely well. There is nothing in this recipe that I would change. This recipe is good for beginners. I found this recipe on My Baking Addiction and the link is I copied and pasted the recipe below and put any comments I had in italics and in parentheses.



  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 4 ounces unsalted butter, melted and cooled to room temperature
  • 1 cup light brown sugar (you can use light or dark brown sugar)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sweetened flaked coconut
  • 1 cup chocolate chips or chunks (I used chips)
  • additional coconut for sprinkling on the top of the bars




  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray an 8-inch square baking pan with cooking spray.
  2. Combine (in a small bowl) the flour and salt; whisk and set to the side.
  3. Stir together the melted butter and brown sugar until smooth and creamy; beat in egg and vanilla extract until well blended.
  4. Slowly beat in the flour and salt mixture until just blended. Next, stir in the coconut and chocolate chips. Scrape the batter into the pan. Make sure the batter is spread evenly, smooth with a spatula. Sprinkle extra coconut on top of the bars.
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until set in the center but still soft. Do not overbake the bars. Let cool slightly before serving. Cut the bars into squares.
