1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup unsweetened dutch-processed cocoa powder**

  • Sift your coconut flour and cocoa powder.
  • Add in coconut flour, cocoa powder, sea salt and baking soda to wet ingredients and stir until well-combined.
  • Stir in chocolate chips
  • Grease an 8 x 8 inch baking dish with coconut oil and add batter.
  • Place in oven to bake or 25-30 minutes (slightly less for fudgier brownies)
  • Cool for 20 minutes before cutting into 16 brownies
  • Keep on counter in airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days, or store in freezer
