Fudgy GF Dark Chocolate Brownies

Fudgy GF Dark Chocolate Brownies

(Adapted from Baking Bites)

  • 1/2 cup butter (or coconut oil)
  • 2 oz dark chocolate, chopped
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup (or more!) of nuts, chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8×8 baking dish with foil and spray with nonstick spray (FYI – I didn’t do this, and they didn’t stick at all).

In a small saucepan, bring some water to a simmer. Place a metal bowl over the saucepan (without letting the bowl touch the water); add the chopped chocolate and butter. Using a silicone spatula, stir until completely melted.

In another bowl, whisk together the sugar, cocoa powder and cornstarch. Add in the butter / chocolate mixture and stir to combine. Whisk in vanilla and salt, then add the eggs one at a time, stirring to incorporate. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.

Pour the mixture into the pan and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until brownie edges are set. Cool completely before slicing (this is really hard to do!).

The original recipe says 25 small bites or 16 larger brownies, but those must have been pretty darn small. I got about 16 small brownies out of the recipe, which were about 2″x2″. Clearly my “small” brownies are equivalent to other people’s “normal” or “larger” size brownies. Oh well…..
