1 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated white sugar

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

  3. Stir in the egg, vanilla, and salt.
  4. Stir in flour, coconut, M&Ms, and chocolate chips until well-combined.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the top with a rubber spatula. Sprinkle a few additional M&Ms on top if desired.
  6. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  7. Let the blondies cool completely in the pan before turning them out onto a cutting board and cutting into squares.
