  • First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. 
  • Line an 8x8 inch baking pan with parchment paper, and use cooking spray to spray the parchment paper so it's coated. 
  • While your oven is preheating, melt the coconut oil and chocolate over low heat, stirring frequently.
  • Meanwhile, combine the sugar, applesauce, flax eggs and vanilla until the mixture is creamy. You can use a stand mixer for this, or a whisk. This can take about 3-5 minutes. If you're using a stand mixer, start on a slower speed and then speed up as the ingredients get more combined so it doesn't splatter. 
  • Add the chocolate mixture to the sugar mixture and stir to combine for 1 minute. 
  • Add the flour and salt and stir to combine gently: stir until the flour is mixed in but be careful not to over mix. 
  • If you're going to add in any "mix-ins" now is the time! I chose to add walnuts, but you can add any type of nut, chocolate chips, or even dried fruit if you'd like. 
  • Spread the batter in the pan and bake for 30 minutes.
  • At the end of 30 minutes, open the oven and insert a toothpick in the center. If it comes out clean, your brownies are done and ready to go. 
  • Let the brownies completely cool before serving




Top Tips for Making These Chocolate Fudge Brownies
  • Make sure you let these brownies rest and completely cool before you cut into them! You will end up with a much more dense and fudgy brownie.
  • Be sure not to over mix the batter - that will change the consistency of your brownie and will make it TOO dense.
  • Don't forget about mix-ins! They make these brownies so much more fun!
  • To make this gluten free, use a gluten free baking flour.
Tips to Make This Recipe Healthier
  • You could replace all of the coconut oil with applesauce, as long as you are ok with a denser brownie
  • Reduce the amount of sugar by 1/3 or 1/2!
  • Try whole wheat pastry flour instead of all purpose flour.
  • Switch to 80% dark chocolate chunks (from a dark chocolate bar) vs. the dark chocolate chips.
