Coconut blondies

Wanted to send sweets with Big Daddy on Valentines Day! Coconut Blondies seemed sweet enough to share - I'm sure they will heart them.
2c flour
1 1/2 tbsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 2/3 c brn sugar
1 c toasted pecans* ( I didn't even toast mine)
3/4 c flaked coconut, lightly packed
3/4 c (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
2 lg eggs, lightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla
melted chocolate and sprinkles (optional)
Preheat oven to 350º. Coat 13x9" baking pan with non stick cooking spray, set aside.
Combine flour,baking powder and salt in large bowl, mix well. Add brown sugar, pecans and coconut - mix well. Make well in center of dry ingredients. Pour in cooled butter, eggs and vanilla. Stir only until dry ingredients are moistened. Spread batter evenly into prepared pan. Bake 25-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Transfer to wire rack to cool completely. Cut into bars. Drizzle with chocolate and throw on some sprinkles :) Store leftovers in airtight container. Makes 24 bars
* To toast pecans, spread in a single layer on cookie sheet. Bake in a preheated 350º oven 8-10 minutes or until golden, stirring frequently. Cool before using.
