How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350. Line an 8x8 or 7x10 pan with foil and lightly spray with vegetable oil spray. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, brown sugar, and baking powder. Add beaten eggs, vanilla and melted butter and stir with a sturdy wooden spoon until combined. Fold in coconut and chocolate chips and spread batter evenly in prepared pan.
  • Bake bars for about 30 minutes or until golden brown all over and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a rack until room temperature. For easier cutting, cover and refrigerate until serving. Remove entire foil from pan, peel away from bars, and cut into desired serving sizes.
