Ingredients
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips or chunks
  • 1/2 cup chopped toasted hazelnuts
  • 1/4 cup sweetened shredded coconut
Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Mist an 8-inch-square glass baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

Whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a small bowl.

Beat the butter and cream cheese in a large bowl with a mixer at medium speed until fluffy. Add the brown sugar and beat 3 to 4 more minutes. Beat in the vanilla and egg. Add the flour mixture and mix on low speed until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips, hazelnuts and coconut with a wooden spoon.

Spread the batter in the prepared baking dish and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes. Let cool 20 minutes in the dish before slicing.
