Ingredients

  • 1 cup dark brown sugar

  • ½ cup coconut oil, at room temperature

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ¼ teaspoon almond extract

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup unsweetened coconut flakes

  • ½ cup sliced toasted almonds

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Generously butter a 7x10-inch or 8x8-inch baking dish.

  2. Beat brown sugar and coconut oil together in a mixing bowl until creamy. Beat in eggs until fluffy. Beat in vanilla and almond extracts.

  3. Mix 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons flour, baking powder, and salt together in a medium bowl. Mix into the wet ingredients until combined; mix in coconut and almonds. Spread evenly into the prepared baking dish.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out mostly clean, 20 to 22 minutes. Cool completely before cutting into 12 bars to serve.
