exterior hollow wall anchors

I'm installing a small awning onto older style stucco wall.

Stucco then shiplap.

What type of fasteners can I use?

The holes in the awning are appropriate 1/2in.

I've been looking, but can't find anything that expands enough in the back to hold it.

Best would be to locate the underlying studs and screw into them. Otherwise you can use a toggle bolt. Because toggle's take large holes make sure you pick one where the hole will be covered by the width of your bracket. You may need a washer under the head of the toggle bolt since it will be smaller than the 1/2" hole in the bracket.

the studs don't lay where I need to mount the frame.
I thought of toggle bolts but seemed not the right way to go.

Toggles would need to go thru the stucco and shiplap.

You would use 1/2"x 4" or 5" long.
A 1/2" toggle requires an 1-1/4" hole to get the toggle into the wall.
The bracket looks to be 2" wide so you should be ok.
The hole would need to be filled with something like silicone caulk.
