Chocolate Brownies

Prep Time:

Cook Time:



About the Recipe


  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour 

  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder, sifted if lumpy

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar, sifted if lumpy

  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

  • 3/4 teaspoons sea salt

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1/2 cup canola oil or extra-virgin olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons water

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 325°F. Lightly spray an 8x8 baking dish (not a 9x9 dish or your brownies will overcook) with cooking spray and line it with parchment paper. Spray the parchment paper.

Step 2

In a medium bowl, combine the sugar, flour, cocoa powder, powdered sugar, chocolate chips, and salt.

Step 3

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, olive oil, water, and vanilla.

Step 4

Sprinkle the dry mix over the wet mix and stir until just combined.

Step 5

Pour the batter into the prepared pan (it'll be thick - that's ok) and use a spatula to smooth the top. Bake for 40 to 48 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out with only a few crumbs attached (note: it's better to pull the brownies out early than to leave them in too long). Cool completely before slicing.*** Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days. These also freeze well!
