I just love quick easy desserts whether for potlucks or because you have the taste for something sweet. This recipe for Coconut Blondies reminds me of a recipe my sister used to make years ago. Best thing is you can mix them up in one bowl, no mixer required. Dessert ready in under an hour and definitely a recipe for an impromptu sweet tooth while kid-friendly to boot. Have your junior bakers help you gather ingredients. They’ll love it.
I made these last week for coworkers at my job and they were in heaven. Coconut Blondies have a chewy texture, sweet but not over the top with a rich buttery taste. So next time you have a craving for a little something sweet, remember Coconut Blondies. Check out my other variations, Macadamia Nut Blondies and Pecan Espresso Blondies. Have fun with this recipe and let me know what variations you have come up with.
