  • 1 cup salted butter
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips I prefer Ghirardelli
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 4 eggs room temperature
  • 1 tbs coconut extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.

  2. Grease a square 8x8" metal pan and line the bottom with parchment paper.

  3. Melt the butter in a large glass bowl with 1/2 of the chocolate chips.

  4. Cool the melted chocolate mixture just a little and then whisk in the cocoa powder followed by the grandulated and brown sugars.

  5. Add the eggs and coconut extract, continuing to whisk the ingredients together.

  6. Carefully fold in the baking powder, flour, and remaining chocolate chips. Don't over mix.

  7. Bake for approximately 50-minutes (less if you use a larger pan). If you put a skewer in the center it should come out clean and the brownie batter should no longer wobble.
