Recipe: Lots of Chocolate Brownies
Sometimes people tell me they don’t want fancy experimental recipes, they just want the classics. Well, you can’t get more classic that a basic brownie with nuts. These brownies have a ton of chocolate added in to make them just a little “extra”!
1/2 C Chocolate Chips
1/4 C + 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 tsp Vanilla
3/4 C GF 1-to-1 Flour (I use Bob’s Red Mill)
1/2 C Cocoa Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1 C Sugar
2/3 C Light Brown Sugar
3 Large Eggs + 1 Egg Yolk
1 C Chocolate Chips, divided
1 1/2 C Pecans, roughly chopped & divided
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x9 baking pan with parchment paper.
In a microwave safe bowl, melt 1/2 C chocolate chips on 50% power. Stir in olive oil and vanilla and set aside to cool while you mix the remaining ingredients.
In a large bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder and sugars. Stir well. Add in the melted chocolate. It will be very dry, you do not have to mix it well at this point.
In a small bowl, crack and beat the eggs. Add the beaten eggs to the flour/chocolate mixture. Stir together with a spatula until all dry ingredients are incorporated. Fold in 1/2 C of the chocolate chips and 1 C of the pecans.
Spread the batter into the prepared pan. Top with remaining 1/2 C chocolate chips and 1/2 C pecans.
Bake in preheated oven for 25-28 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out with just a few crumbs.
Remove from oven and cool completely before cutting, about 2 hours.
Store leftovers in an airtight container.
