Chocolate Chip Macaroon Blondies

Chocolate Chip Macaroon Blondies ~ part blondie, part macaroon, part chocolate chip cookie, these easy dessert bars are universally loved!

We’ll be briefly seeing our daughter at college this weekend and I want to bring her a homemade treat.  Her town is small enough that there is no Starbucks, so an amazing local bakery/coffee shop has been able to thrive there.  They make a to-die-for macaroon the size of a golf ball that is dipped in dark chocolate.  It costs a small fortune, and after you eat one you don’t need to eat for the rest of the day.  She and I are both hooked on them, so I know she’ll love these blondies.

Note: You can find coconut flour in specialty stores, online, and often in the large supermarket chains.

Chocolate Chip Macaroon Blondies


  • 10 Tbsp unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar I used dark brown, you can use any kind
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cups coconut flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • generous 1/2 cup chocolate chips I used dark, use any kind you want, including white!
  • generous 1/2 cup sweetened coconut flakes


  • Preheat your oven to 350F.
  • Line your 8x8 or 9x9 pan with foil to make it easy to remove and cut your blondies.
  • Measure out the flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl.  Mix to combine.
  • Cream the butter and sugar till fluffy, then add the eggs and extracts and mix well.
  • Add the flour mixture, coconut and chocolate.  Mix until just well combined.
  • Spread evenly in your pan and bake for about 30-35 minutes (check at 30) until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out moist with a few crumbs and the blondies are looking light golden.
  • Cool before cutting.

    You are such a sweet and thoughtful mom. By the look of those, there’s no doubt she’ll absolutely love them. Best that Starbucks hasn’t invaded — I bet she’ll find more interesting goodies at her local bakeshop anyway 🙂

    Ooh! I’d bet my dad would love these. There used to be a nearby bakery with blondies he’d enjoy when he visited. I will make some to send overnight for him. (BTW, I gave you the Liebster Award a week ago and am way behind on visiting with my favorite blogs, oops.)

    I adore coconut chocolate chip blondies. They are my favorite version ever! Love the addition of the coconut flour and I have some in the freezer already. I’m going to try that in my next batch. Thanks!

    I’ve contemplated buying coconut flour, but haven’t yet…always putting it off until I had something in mind to make. It’s going on my list now…these look awesome!

    Ok, you read my mind. I have been looking to make blondies for the kids and I am going to use this recipe. We still love and make your pumpkin bread quite often.
