Preheat oven to 350° F. Prepare a 9" square bake pan with cooking spray. Whisk together the flour and salt in a medium bowl and set aside.
Mix the melted butter into the brown sugar until smooth. Then blend in the egg and vanilla extract
Gradually blend in the flour mixture. Finally stir in the coconut and chocolate chips.
Fold the blondie mixture into the prepared pan and press it out evenly over the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle the top with the remaining coconut flakes and bake for approx. 25 minutes. Do not over bake. It will be done when the coconut begins to turn golden brown. Let cool for about a half hour before cutting into bars.
