Recipe Notes

  • For an intensely chocolatey brownie, use ¼ cup of cocoa powder and 3 tablespoons of flour.
  • Semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips can be used depending on flavor preference. These are not included in the nutrition estimate as they are optional.
  • Don’t use a 9×5-inch loaf pan or the brownies will be too thin.
  • Be careful not to overmix the batter or the brownies might be cakey.
