2 3/4 cups all purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup butter, softened (not melted)
1 lb. light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
11.5 ounce package milk chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans, walnuts, and shredded coconut (I mixed all together to make 1 cup)
Sift flour, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl. In another bowl, Stir brown sugar into softened butter in another large bowl until butter disappears. Add eggs one at a time to butter mixture and stir well. Add vanilla, chocolate chips, nuts (and coconut if you'd like). Mix well. Add the flour mixture and stir until well combined.
Coat a 13 x 9 pan with non-stick spray and spread batter evenly into dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes (this is tricky because it may actually take less time, better to be under-baked than over-baked)or until top or golden brown.
