  • cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder I prefer to use Ghiradelli 100% Unsweetened Cocoa Powder for Milk Chocolate flavor or Hershey’s Special Dark or Black Cocoa Powder to get super dark chocolate brownies.
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup unsalted butter (1 stick)
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil or oil of choice if using coconut oil, melt it with butter
  • 1 ¼ cups sugar
  • 2 large eggs or ½ cup applesauce for vegan version
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8x8 square baking pan, or line it with parchment paper.
  • Combine flour, cocoa and salt and mix, set aside.
  • Melt butter in microwave until melted in a large microwavable bowl or after melted, transfer to a large bowl.
  • While the butter is still hot, mix in the oil and sugar and and whisk together until mixed well.
  • Add eggs and vanilla and mix until well combined.
  • Add flour to buttery mixture and whisk together until well combined.
  • Spoon the batter into the pan and spread evenly. Batter will be thick.
  • Bake for 28-30 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out with a few crumbs.



Can substitute ½ cup unsweetened applesauce for eggs, just replace eggs in instructions.
