Quick & Easy Chocolate Fudge Brownies

Makes 1 8×8-inch pan      

  • WHY THIS RECIPE WORKS:  These delicious brownies get a double-pop of flavor from both cocoa and semi-sweet chocolate chips.  Potato starch gives added moistness and lightness.

1/2 cup butter (see Dairy-Free Notes)

6 TAB. cocoa

1 cup sugar  (see Sugar Substitution Notes)

3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided (See Dairy-Free Notes)

3 large or extra-large eggs

1/3  cup potato starch

Pinch of sea salt (1/16th teaspoon)

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Grease an 8×8-inch baking dish.
  2. In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium/low heat.  Stir.  Remove from heat when melted.
  3. Whisk in the cocoa until smooth; whisk in the sugar.  Add 1/4 cup of the chocolate chips and whisk until melted.  Whisk in the eggs, one at a time.  When smooth whisk in the potato starch and sea salt. 
  4. Stir in the remaining 1/2 cup of chocolate chips and pour into the prepared pan.  Place baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for 23-28 minutes.  Do not over-bake.  The brownies should be barely set in the middle and just start to crack on the outside edges.  Cool on a baking rack. 
  • DAIRY-FREE:  Use Dairy-Free Chocolate Chips & Earth Balance Vegan Buttery Stick. 
  • EGG-FREE:  Do not attempt to make this recipe without eggs.  The eggs are an integral part of the structure of the brownies and hold them together.
  • SUGAR SUBSTITUTION:  If you like your brownies less sweet tasting, and have a bit of a “caramel-y flavor” use 1 cup Coconut Sugar instead of regular sugar.
  • ADD NUTS:  1/2 – 1 cup walnuts, chopped or halves.  Before baking, sprinkle  on top of the batter.
