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.
