My normal brownie routine is to begin by melting chocolate and butter together, and I decided to change things up a bit. I love the flavour depth and texture that cocoa powder brings to a chocolatey bake, so I decided to give it a go! I found that all cocoa gave the most incredible flavour, but a slightly cake-ier texture than I wanted, so the next time I made them I used 60g cocoa and 60g chocolate.
And combining the cocoa flavour bomb with some unadulterated coconut just felt like a winner to me. And oh wow. It was.
You know bounty bars? You know how happy they make people? Well, here they are in brownie form, SCORE! Completely dense and rich and chocolatey and kind of incredible. I love it when a brownie comes together (in my mouth). I baked mine for 40 minutes and that was PLENTY, so I’d start checking after 30 minutes and taking them out as soon as ready.
