This is a vintage recipe dating back to when shredded coconut came in cans! (see note *) It’s also not a brownie, it’s a blondie, but I’ve retained its historical name. These are quick, easy and chewy butterscotch blondies with coconut and pecans…made easy with Bisquick baking mix.


  • 2 cups Bisquick ™ baking mix

  • 2-1/3 cups light brown sugar, firmly packed

  • 4 large eggs

  • 1/2 cup margarine, softened

  • 1 (3.5 ounce) can shredded/flaked coconut or 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut (see note *) NOT COCONUT MILK!

  • 1-1/2 cup chopped pecans

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 350F. Mix all ingredients and bake in a 9×13-inch pan for 45 minutes. Cool on rack, cut while warm.


  • * Canned coconut is very moist, flaked coconut and at one time it was a staple in baking, but it’s hard to find these days. The most popular brand in the US was Baker’s, but theirs now only comes in bags. Apparently other brands of canned shredded coconut are available in other countries, especially in the Caribbean. In the US (and maybe Canada and elsewhere) it can still be found in some Cuban, Dominican and other Caribbean markets, but you can just substitue 1 cup of shredded coconut instead.

I love this recipe, it is very tasty and I would make it a day before company comes over. For sure I will make it again.

Great and easy recipe. I melted the butter so it would blend easier and the recipe came out great. I was looking for something non-chocolate for my Christmas plates and this fits the bill.

I omitted the coconut and pecans. Delicious! When I was growing up, we called these "Blonde Brownies".

I made these for many years, my children loved them and they were great for a family on a budget. I always had Bisquick in the house and was fortunate to have a pecan tree in the yard. Mine too would fall but I expected this from my brownies. They were always delicious and never lasted long.

Once again, not the best. I'm looking for professional like cookies these were just not cutting it.

The brownies were delicious. I made the recipe twice. The brownies fell both times. The first time I thought they fell because I opened and closed the drawer under the stove while they were baking. I was in the kitchen while they baked, but didn't make any noise. Does anyone know what the problem could have been?
