Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and grease an 8×8 baking dish.
In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, add the butter. As it begins to boil, continuously swirl the pan to prevent burning. Continue until the butter darkens to an amber color, then remove from the heat.
Stir brown sugar into the warm butter until fully integrated. Then mix in the eggs and vanilla.
Add flour, baking powder, and salt to the wet ingredients and stir until combined.
Fold in the shredded coconut into the batter, then transfer it to your prepared baking dish.
Bake for 40-45 minutes. Cover with foil for the last 10 minutes to prevent over-browning.
Allow the bars to cool completely before slicing.
