If you like a soft, cake like brownie this recipe is for you. The crunchy bits of Heath Bar make it different than most blondies. I used three bars which was more than was called for but that just made this better. You don't need to line the pan with foil, just a bit of butter or oil.
- 1 cup chopped pecans (optional)
- 1 cup all-purpose white flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄8 teaspoon salt
- 3⁄4 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1⁄2 cup unsalted butter, slightly softened
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 1⁄3 cup Heath candy bar, chopped fine
- 1 cup sweetened flaked coconut
