Chocolate Chip Brownies

We all need to indulge every now and then. Let's be honest, I am human, you're human and we need decadent treats here and there. These are not good for you really. I do use coconut oil and stevia instead of butter and sugar. But seriously, don't eat these every day. ;)

  • 1/2 cup extra virgin coconut oil
  • 3 ounces quality semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 cup Stevia in the Raw
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup unbleached flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp instant coffee granules
  • 1 cup semi-sweet mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a square 8x8 inch baking pan.

Place the chopped chocolate in a glass bowl. Melt the coconut oil and pour over the chocolate. Let sit for 3 to 4 minutes, then stir until smooth. Add the stevia, coffee and salt, mixing until dissolved.

In a separate bowl whisk the eggs and vanilla. Add to the chocolate mixture, beating until smooth and glossy. Add the flour. Fold in the chocolate chips, reserving 1/4 cup to sprinkle over the top.

Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan. Spread evenly and sprinkle with the reserved chocolate chips.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.

Remove from oven and let cool completely before cutting. This will help them set properly.
