I made these brownies with the intention of cutting them up to put in cookies (recipe to come soon). However they turned out perfectly so I thought it was worth sharing this recipe as well. These brownies come from Inspired Taste.
1.5 sticks unsalted butter
1 1/4 cups (250 grams) granulated sugar
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons (80 grams) unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1/2 cup (65 grams) all-purpose flour
Preheat oven to 325˚F. Line and spray an 8×8 inch pan.
Combine butter, sugar, cocoa powder and salt in a double boiler. Stir until melted and combined.
Allow to cool for 5 minutes.
Add vanilla extract and eggs and mix well.
Once combined add flour and stir 50 times.
Transfer to pan and bake for 25-30 minutes.
Science Fact of the Week:
Unsweetened cocoa powder has many health benefits, such as balancing cholesterol. This means that it lowers LDL and increases HDL cholesterol. It can also improve brain health with its neuroprotective benefits.
