Chocolate Chip – Coconut Blondies

The other week I was really craving something chewy and chocolatey. And the idea of coconut made it even better. Instead of getting in the kitchen and creating something (it would have been fabulous, I’m sure) I decided to adapt these blondies I’d had a recipe for.

Although no one can call these healthy by most standards (they are homemade which means no preservatives or chemicals added), a small square will never hurt, and it makes a great dessert in a lunchbox or on dessert night.

  4. These look wonderful, so much so that I’d love to make them for a big group. Do you think it would work well to double it for a 9×13 pan? Thanks!
