Plenty of pecans fill these buttery brown sugar Coconut Blondies creating a hand-held dessert that makes a terrific snack or a company dessert when served warm and topped with cold ice cream.

Coconut Pecan Blondies

NEVER FAIL BLONDIES

This recipe is adapted from the Never Fail Blondies in The Weeknight Dinner Cookbook and the flavor combinations are pretty much endless.

Coconut Blondies are my current favorite. There’s something awesomely irresistible about that chewy coconut texture.

I typically add in a generous handful of chopped pecans, and even chocolate chips upon occasion, but most of the time I make these exactly as written below.

Blondies are the dessert recipe that everyone needs to have in their back pocket.

When you combine the texture of a brownie with the deep flavors of the ultimate chocolate chip cookie, you get a rich and chewy treat that everyone loves.

With only 6 main ingredients, you can stir this recipe together in minutes with just a bowl and a spoon.

I’ve included alternative gluten free ingredients in the recipe card, as well as with most of the blondie recipes linked below too.

Toss in a few handfuls of your favorite add-ins and you’ll have these bars ready for the oven before it preheats.

Blondie Baking Tips

This recipe can be doubled to fill a 9×13 pan. The doubled recipe will need to be baked for 40-45 minutes until an inserted toothpick has moist crumbs. Slice into 16-24 servings.

Yes, you can make this recipe in a greased pan without any liner at all. I simply prefer the ease of lifting the bars from the pan by the sides of the parchment or foil and slicing them outside of the pan.

And last but not least, if you would like to slice these while they’re still warm, a disposable plastic knife is the tool you’ll need for clean slices.

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8-inch pan with parchment paper or line with foil and grease the foil very well. In a large bowl, stir together the butter and sugar until smooth.
  2. Add the egg and vanilla and stir to combine. Stir in the flour and salt, just until combined. Stir in the coconut and pecans. Add chocolate chips, if desired.
  3. Scoop the batter into the prepared pan and spread to the sides. Bake 25-28 minutes, until an inserted toothpick has moist crumbs. The blondies should be slightly browned along the edges.
  4. Cool in the pan for at least 20 minutes and then lift the brownies out by the foil/paper and set on a wire rack to finish cooling before slicing and storing in an airtight container.

    Absolutely yummy. I’m eating one right now. I used walnuts as I couldn’t find the pecans buried in my freezer, and they are great!5 stars

    These were a huge hit ! I did not add chips. 😋 Even my daughter-in-law who was visiting over Mother’s weekend couldn’t stop eating them. She’s a graduate from culinary school in pastry. 😃Your display photo shows them topped with coconut bits but no mention of you doing that. I think I’ll try it though, look so appealing. Thanks for your recipe. 🥰5 stars
