Chewy Coconut Brownies



Sorry sorry for taking a little hiatus there last week. Between working on my exciting new project and getting packed, it’s just been crazy busy!

Packed you say? For where, Hunter, you ask?

Well let me tell you… My friend McKenzie and I have embarked on an adventure! We have just arrived in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. Next, we are heading to Charleston, NC, then Asheville, NC, Nashville, TN, and finally Grammy’s house in Moulton, AL. I know, exciting stuff.


I, of course, had minor (er, I mean major) panic attacks all day today.

I am not very independent, so it was definitely hard for me to leave my family behind and head out on the open road.

But I’m excited for these next few weeks just traveling around and experiencing something new.

And I’m even more excited to be experiencing it with my best friend. I mean, how great is that?


And I wish I would have made enough of these brownies to take with me. These things are delicious. I got this recipe from my aunt, who still has a ton of my Grandma’s old recipes, and I couldn’t wait to try it.

I’ve made them about 4 times now and they are quick & easy, and tasty! I love how the coconut kind of melts into the brownie, and the nuts are the perfect crunch.

Yum is all I can say.


Well, it’s a beautiful day here in sunny Hilton Head! And don’t worry, there will be many picture posts to come (if you like that sorta thing), and I will also do my best to make up for my lack of posting last week.

By the way, I’ve lived at the beach for 10 years and hardly ever actually go down to the beach. But here, I’m excited to go to the beach. What is up with that? I know, I’m such a weirdo.

And beach spoiled? Yeah, I know that too.

I have a special request, can someone please bake me some coconut brownies and deliver them to me? Like, while I’m sitting on the beach?

Oh you’re too kind.


Chewy Coconut Brownies
for the "crust"
  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ cup water
  • 4 tablespoons powdered sugar
for the brownies
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1½ cups brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 cup chopped nuts (I used walnuts and they were delish)
  • ¾ cup coconut flakes
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the "crust" ingredients together and spread into a greased 8x8 inch pan.
  3. Bake for 12-15 minutes.
  4. When the crust is done baking, combine the brownie ingredients in a large bowl and spread over the top.
  5. Return to the oven and bake for 20 minutes.
  6. Cut into bars while hot and enjoy.
If you have a strong oven, you might need to reduce the temperature and bake time for the crust. You want it to come out chewy, not hard.


P.S. Who else is pumped that summer is here?!
