Coconut Oil Brownies
Does coconut oil make brownies healthier? We can't say that - jury's still out - but these coconut oil brownies are richly chocolatey and delicious!
- 3 ounces 87 grams unsweetened chocolate
- 1 ounce 30 grams semisweet chocolate
- 1 cup 220 grams coconut oil
- 1¼ cups 162 grams all purpose flour
- ¼ cup 37 grams cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon 4 grams baking powder
- ½ teaspoon 4 grams salt
- 3 eggs
- 1¾ cups 362 grams sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 350°. Line a 9” x 13” baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.
Whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt and set aside.
Place the unsweetened chocolate, semisweet chocolate and coconut oil in a large microwave safe bowl. Microwave just until all of the ingredients are melted. When microwaving coconut oil, it is best to do so in smaller increments of time rather than one long time period.
Stir until smooth. Blend in the sugar. Stir the batter while adding the eggs so that they don’t curdle. Add the vanilla. Stir in the dry ingredients.
Transfer the batter to the prepared pan. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Cool before cutting, if you can wait that long!
