 Ingredients List

  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1½ cups light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut, toasted
  • ½ cup semisweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan, then line it with parchment paper or use 2 sheets of foil allowing extra for overhang. Press foil into corners. Grease foil. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.
Whisk together the melted butter and light brown sugar in a large bowl until combined. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well. Fold in dry ingredients using a rubber spatula just until combined. Do not over mix. Fold in the toasted coconut and chocolate chips. Transfer the batter into the prepared pan, and smooth it out.
Baking for 22 to 25 minutes or until top is shiny and cracked. It should feel firm. Cool completely in the pan on a wire rack. Remove the bars from the pan using the parchment handles and transfer to a cutting board. Cut into 2 x 1½-inch bars. Store in an airtight container.
