1 cup coconut oil
4 oz dark chocolate (60–70% cacao)
2 cups sugar
4 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
4 large eggs
1 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
1 cup dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 9x13 baking pan with aluminum foil and lightly grease.
In a large microwave safe mixing bowl (or a small microwave-safe bowl), melt together coconut oil and dark chocolate in the microwave. This should be done in 30-second intervals, stirring regularly, to avoid overcooking the mixture. Allow mixture to cool slightly.
Whisk sugar and cocoa power into coconut oil mixture. Whisk in eggs, one at a time, followed by the salt and vanilla extract. Whisk in the all purpose flour and stir until flour is just incorporated and no streaks remain. Fold in chocolate chips and pour batter into prepared pan.
Bake for 30-35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with only a few moist crumbs attached.
Allow brownies to cool completely in the pan, then lift the foil to easily remove them before slicing.
