Sea Salt Brownies

Happy Friday everyone!! I am going to keep this post short and sweet because I’ve been getting to bed super late the past couple of weeks and I had planned to go to bed early tonight (I normally write my posts the night before I post them), but as I was about to hit the hay, I remembered I forgot to draft my post for these brownies. I just had to post these today because they’re such a sweet treat for the weekend.


Even if I wasn’t short on time writing this, these brownies speak for themselves, so my job is pretty easy with this recipe. These brownies are super decadent, chewy and sprinkled in sea salt. The sea salt is money!!! I will never not put sea salt on my brownies again after testing this recipe out.


My husband and I both couldn’t get enough of them and our 8X8 baking pan was pretty much gone in a day or two. These babies are addicting, and I’m not even a sweets person. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

  • 8 tbsp. butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup refined coconut oil, melted (alt: canola oil)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt, plus more for topping
  • 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

Grease an 8×8 baking pan with cooking spray and preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium bowl, combine the butter, coconut oil and sugar. Whisk until combined. Add the vanilla and eggs and whisk until combined. Add the flour, cocoa powder and sea salt and whisk until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Place the brownie mixture into the prepared baking pan and sprinkle with additional sea salt. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until just cooked through. Top with additional sea salt if desired.
