|Gooey chocolate, chewy coconut and a brown sugar cookie = cookie bar perfection!|
3 large eggs
1/2c Spectrum Organic Shortening (non-hydrogenated / no trans fat)
2tsp vanilla extract
1c firmly packed light brown sugar
2c Pamela's Ultimate Baking & Pancake Mix
3/4c sweetened flaked coconut (if you don't like the texture of coconut, grind in a food processor)
1c semi-sweet chocolate chips plus more for the top
1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 10X13" pan with parchment paper.
2. In a large bowl, beat eggs, shortening and vanilla. Add sugar and continue beating. Once combined, beat in baking mix.
3. Stir in coconut and chocolate chips. Spread the dough evenly in a baking pan using a spoon or spatula. Top with extra chocolate chips and press them into the dough slightly.
4. Bake about 20 minutes, or until set and golden brown (do not overbake!). Allow bars to cool on a wire rack before cutting. Enjoy!
