1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup sweetened flake coconut
1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts
1/2 cup chopped semisweet chocolate
- Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Line an 8-inch square baking pan with foil, letting ends extend above pan on 2 sides. Coat foil with vegetable cooking spray.
- Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar and stir until mixture begins to bubble. Remove from heat and cool for 20 minutes, or until lukewarm. Whisk in egg and vanilla until thoroughly blended. Stir in flour and baking powder until well mixed. Stir in half the coconut, macadamia nuts and chocolate. Spread in prepared pan then top with remaining coconut, nuts and chocolate.
- Bake for 25 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let sit for 10 minutes, before carefully lifting brownies out of pan with the overhanging foil. Cool on wire rack and cut as desired.
