  • 7 tablespoon coconut oil
  • cup coconut sugar*
  • Orange zest from two large oranges grated
  • 7-8 oz large chocolate chips or shredded chocolate** dairy free if desired
  • 2 eggs large
  • 2 teaspoon Vanilla extract extract
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 ½ tablespoon almond flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt


  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Heat up a small saucepan over medium heat with chocolate chips and coconut oil until all the chocolate is melted and the texture smooth. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • In a medium mixing bowl beat eggs for 2-3 minutes at high speed. Don’t overbeat the eggs.
  • Then add the melted chocolate to the egg mixture and stir well to combine. Follow with vanilla, sugar, cocoa powder, cornstarch, salt, and almond flour, and orange zest. Stir well until all ingredients combined.
  • Transfer the brownie batter into an 8 x 8-inch or 8 x 9-inch baking dish covered with parchment paper. Bake the brownies for 25 minutes. (Depending on the oven bake for 20-25 minutes, but a good rule is to remove the brownies from the oven earlier than later, they'll continue to cook after removing from the oven.)
  • Remove from the oven and allow the brownies to cool in the pan for 20 minutes, before carefully transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Slice and enjoy with a scoop of ice cream on the side. (Just reheat brownie before that, yum!)


*Can sub. To brown sugar
** To make it extra fudgy feel free to add more chocolate, at least 1 cup.
- When removing the brownie from the oven it will be moist and you’ll need to let it cool COMPLETELY until cutting.
- The secret to making these brownies fudgy is not only using good quality sugar but also high quality and LARGE chocolate chips. If you don’t have large ones, it may be better to use large chunks of cooking chocolate instead.
 - Makes 9 large or 16 small pieces.
