We all love our sweets, at least I do. So I’m always looking for low sugar treats I can make to replace the high sugar, high fat non-nutritious versions. My friend, Linda, gave me a recipe yesterday and as I was reading through it I saw that I had everything in my cupboard but I thought I could change it some to make it even better.¬† I DID!!

1/2 cup butter (I used “I Can’t Believer It’s Not Butter” sticks)
1/4 cup SPLENDA Brown Sugar Blend, packed
1 cup whole wheat flour (called for regular flour)
1/4 cup flax seed (didn’t call for this but I try to add it to recipies where I can)

2 eggs
1/4 cup SPENDA Brown Sugar Blend, packed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 cups coconut
3/4 cup Hershey’s Sugar Free Chocolate Chips (my new best friend)
1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Combine butter, 1/4 cup brown sugar and flour until dough forms. Press into a 13×9 baking pan.
Bake for 10 minutes

Blend the eggs, remaining 1/4 cup brown sugar, vanilla, flour and baking powder. Stir in the coconut, chocolate chips and pecans.

Spread the filling onto the partially baked crust.

Return to the oven for 20 minutes.
