I haven’t posted a recipe in a long time, and I’ve been meaning to post a killer blondie recipe FOREVER, so I figured it was about time to get it done.

I love bar recipes because they’re  practically fool-proof (which is a good thing for fools like me) and they’re QUICK. Just throw the ingredients together and slap em in a pan.

This was the first blondie recipe I ever remember trying and I think I dug it out of some random cookbook that I probably don’t even own anymore, but boy are they GOOD.
I don’t think I’ve even made brownies since I discovered this recipe.
THAT good.

Brown Butter Blondies

  • 10 TBSP Unsalted Butter
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Cup Brown Sugar, packed
  • 1/4 Cup White Sugar
  • 2 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 1/4 Cups Flour
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 1/4 Cups Shredded Coconut (Sweetened)
  • 1 1/4 Cups M&M’s

In a saucepan, heat the butter over medium heat until it browns (don’t let it burn!).
Let it cool for a few minutes, then mix together with the sugars.
Stir in the egg, vanilla, salt, flour, and coconut until well combined.
The original recipe called for chocolate chips, but I substituted M&M’s the first time around and now we’re hooked. I’ve used peanut, peanut butter, and most recently, coconut M&M’s (they were by FAR the best!).
So, add in the M&M’s.
Press into greased 9×9 pan and drop a few M&M’s on the top.
Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.
Let cool completely before slicing.

They’re the perfect balance between chewy and crunchy and gooey. I could probably eat the whole pan by myself.
