  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ cup + 6 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1-½ cups light brown sugar, packed
  • cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup flake sweetened coconut
  • 2-½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 350-degrees F.
  • Grease and flour a 9x13 baking pan. Set aside.
  • Sift together the all-purpose flour and baking powder. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter with the granulated and light brown sugars.
  • Add in the eggs, water and vanilla extract.  Mix to combine.
  • With the mixer speed on low, slowly add the sifted flour mixture into the mixing bowl and mix until combined. The dough will seem sticky.
  • Remove the bowl from the mixer and use a spoonula to fold in the flaked coconut and chocolate chips.
  • Turn the dough out into the prepared pan and use the back of the spoonula to spread the batter evenly.
  • Bake for 30 minutes until the bars are golden brown.
  • Let cool before cutting into squares or bars.
