Lemon Coconut Blondies are thick and chewy like a blondie but made with coconut, lemon, and white chocolate. They are a great dessert bar for spring or anytime you need a lemon and coconut fix!
Bright and citrusy coconut lemon bars are a great way to put a spin on a classic blondie. I’m pretty much obsessed with lemon, and these lemon blondies have been on the list for quite a while.
I basically took my favorite toffee blondies and turned them into lemon white chocolate blondies. It’s so fun to take a recipe and give it a complete makeover to create something new, and these chewy, thick blondies are all about the lemon, coconut, and white chocolate.
Lemon Coconut Blondie Highlights
Instead of brown sugar, I use white sugar, and I add coconut and lemon juice and zest. They baked up dense and chewy, almost like a cake. But they’re a bar. Let’s call them a cakar. Or a barake. Or, maybe we should stick with Lemon Coconut Blondies.
Because lemon and white chocolate should be married and have children, I frosted these with a white chocolate frosting and added a coconut topping for a finishing touch.
They are wonderful all year, but they are the perfect springtime dessert. They’re bright, lemony, and so delicious.
