  • 1.5 cups chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup oats ground into flour
  • 1/4 cup milk of choice water would also work, but milk gives a much better consistency.
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

  • 1/8 tsp salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Gather ingredients. 

  2. In a small saucepan over low medium heat (or in a microwave safe bowl), add in chocolate chips, butter (or coconut oil), milk and honey. Stir occasionally until melted and set aside.

  3. While chocolate is melting, place parchment paper into 8x9 pan and make oat flour.

Recipe Notes

You could use a different size baking dish, but you will have to adjust baking times. A larger pan will yield thinner brownie and a shorter baking time. A smaller baking dish will yeild a thicker brownie and longer baking time.
