  • 3/4 cup coconut oil melted
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup dark chocolate unsweetened cocoa powder I used Hershey's Special Dark
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips I used Ghirardelli baking chips, per usual


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8 x 8 square baking dish with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, melt the coconut oil (about 20 seconds was all mine took).
  • Add the sugar, flour, cocoa, and eggs. Stir until well combined.
  • Add the chocolate chips and stir.
  • Pour the batter into your prepared baking dish and bake for approximately 30-35 minutes (less time if you're using a 9" pan).
  • Let them cool then cut & enjoy. You can top with powdered sugar, if that floats your boat.
