Maple Coconut Blondies

This simple yet delicious recipe is adapted slightly from Baking Bites and yields 16 very moist, not-too-sweet-or-overpowering, wonderful bars.

1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp maple extract
1 large egg
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup shredded coconut

Preheat oven to 350F.
Lightly grease an 8-inch square baking dish.
In a large bowl, combine butter, sugar, maple syrup, vanilla and the egg and whisk until smooth. Add in flour and salt and stir just until no streaks of flour remain. Add in coconut and stir to distribute evenly. Pour into prepared baking dish.
Bake for 30-35 minutes, until blondies are set and lightly browned.Cool in pan on a wire rack.
[High altitude: Add an extra 1-2 Tbsp flour and bake at 325, watching closely after 30min or so til top is lightly browned and knife comes out almost clean.]
