  • 6 TBS Salted Butter or coconut oil
  • ¾ cup (6 oz) chocolate chips or unsweetened baking chocolate*
  • 2 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 2/3 cup Granulated sugar (for paleo use coconut sugar)
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder sifted***
  • 3 TBS tapioca starch (or arrowroot starch or cornstarch)
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • ½ cup chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Grease an 8x8” square pan and set aside. (You can also line it with parchment paper for easy removal if you like)
  • In a small bowl, stir together sifted cocoa powder, tapioca starch and salt. Set aside.
  • In a microwave safe container or over the stovetop, melt butter (or coconut oil) and chocolate chips together and stir until smooth and glossy.
  • Add eggs, to the bowl of your standing mixer fitted with the wire whip attachment, and beat on medium-high speed for 1 minute. The eggs will be pale yellow, thicker and frothy. (You can also beat for 60 seconds with a hand-held mixer)
  • Add coconut sugar (or granulated sugar) to the bowl of your standing mixer and beat on medium-high speed for an additional 1 minute. The mixture will be a little thick. (You can also beat for 60 seconds with a hand-held mixer)
  • Add the melted butter/chocolate mixture and vanilla and beat until combined.
  • Add dry mixture and beat until smooth and there are no lumps.
  • Add ½ cup chocolate chips and stir by hand until they’re evenly distributed.
  • Pour batter into the prepared baking dish. Bake in your preheated oven for 18-25 minutes, or until the top is set and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with wet crumbs!
  • Let sit for about 15 minutes. Serve warm or room temperature!
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. To return the fresh-from-the-oven taste simply reheat in the microwave for 10 seconds!


*Use paleo-friendly chocolate like enjoy life foods chocolate chunks. Or you can use unsweetened baking chocolate but you may need to increase the amount of sugar.**You can use any granulated sugar. They do come out sweet so if you like your brownies darker I'd recommend using 1/2 cup! For a paleo version, use coconut sugar. ***Sifting your cocoa powder insures there will not be any lumps which is super important!
