  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups (400g) granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup (60g) Special Dark Cocoa (or dutch process)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ¾ cups (217g) all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups (340g) dark chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 9x13-inch pan with foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Add oil, sugar, and cocoa to a large bowl. Stir until smooth.
  • Stir in eggs, salt, and vanilla. Slowly stir in flour, then stir in chocolate chips.
  • Spread batter in prepared pan.
  • Bake for 25-28 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out 2-inches from the side with just a few crumbs.
  • Cool before slicing into bars.Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 2 months.



  • What’s the best way to get clean slices? Use a plastic knife to cut brownies and get clean slices. I don't know why it works so well but gooey brownies won't stick to a plastic knife!
  • How do you know brownies are done? Check for doneness by inserting a toothpick two inches from the edge. It should come out clean with just a few crumbs.
