Microwave Dark Chocolate, Coconut and Walnut Bars

This is a fast treat to make in the microwave.  Easy to mix up and cook...what could be better in our hurried, hot days of summer?  I don't have a square microwavable pan so I used a round casserole dish.  Worked for me!

Microwave Dark Chocolate, Coconut and Walnut Bars

6 tablespoons butter, room temperature
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 tablespoons milled flax seed and 3 tablespoons water or 1 egg
2/3 cups all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 to 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (1/2 is very chocolaty)  
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, pecans or almonds

Cream butter and brown sugar until fluffy.
Add milled flax seed, flour, baking soda and salt.  
Mix well.
Spread into a 8" inch microwavable pan or dish.
Mix dark chocolate chips, coconut and walnuts together. 
Sprinkle on top of dough, pressing slightly.

Microwave for 3 minutes (1100 watt microwave).  Turn 1/2 way around if you do not have a turntable.  Microwave 1 minute.  Touch and see if it springs back slightly.  You do not want to over cook these.  I cooked mine for 5 1/2 minutes and I should have stopped between 4 1/2 and 5 minutes to be a little softer.  They taste wonderful!  Enjoy!
