These soft + chewy coconut macadamia bars have sweetened flaked coconut, plenty of macadamia nuts, a lil’ white chocolate and a rich buttery crust!


Ingredients

Scale
  • For the crust
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 cup salted butter, melted and cooled
  • For the topping
  • 1 [14 oz] can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup salted butter, melted and cooled

  • 1 tbsp almond extract
  • 3 cups sweetened flaked coconut
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped macadamia nuts

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a 13×9 inch baking pan with parchment paper and let excess extend over sides of pan.
  2. To make the crust, in a large bowl, stir together flour, brown sugar, and melted butter. Mixture will form into a coarse crumble. Press mixture into prepared pan, using a spatula may help.

  4. Let crust cool for about 10-15 minutes once done.
  5. Reduce oven temperature to 325°F.
  6. For topping, using same bowl, but cleaned, whisk together melted butter and eggs until combined. Add condensed milk, flour, sugar, vanilla/almond extract, stirring until combined.
  7. Add 2 cups of sweetened flaked coconut, macadamia nuts, and white chocolate chips; stir well.
  8. Pour mixture over crust and sprinkle top with remaining 1 cup of sweetened flaked coconut.
  9. Place into oven and bake until coconut on top is slightly browned, about 30-35 minutes.
  10. Once baked, let cool completely.
  11. Using sides of parchment paper as handles, remove from pan and cut into bars of desired size.
