  • Food processor



  • Preheat oven to 350º F. Mix avocado oil and 1/2 cup of chocolate chips in a bowl. Melt in the microwave by heating for 30 seconds, stirring, and then repeating. If not completely melted, continue heating at 30 second intervals.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs and sugar until well combined.
  • Process everything other than above two mixtures in a food processor until a doughy consistency.
  • Place the dough in large bowl and mix in the chocolate chip mixture. Add in the egg mixture, folding in gently. Fold in the rest of the chocolate chips.
  • Grease square pan (either 8x8 or 9x9 is preferable) and line with parchment paper. Pour in batter and bake for 40 minutes (checking at 30 and 35 minutes). Allow to cool before cutting.


  • Testing for doneness: Brownies are done when toothpick comes out mostly clean with some crumbs still attached.
  • For coffee: Use brewed coffee that has been sitting out or refrigerator. Can be substituted with water, but coffee is highly recommended.
