All-Natural/Organic Cocoa Brownies



This past Sunday we had a Patriotic picnic at church since it’s July 4th week. I made cocoa brownies for it, using all-natural and organic ingredients. I got the recipe from The Goodhousekeeping Cookbook. It was the first recipe I’ve made from my new cookbook, so I was happy to be putting it to good use! 



Here’s what I used: 

  • 1/2 cup organic all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup all-natural unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted organic butter
  • 1 cup organic sugar
  • 2 large all-natural eggs
  • 1 tsp all-natural vanilla extract 




  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease your baking dish. I used a 9×13 dish, but I’d recommend using 9×9 if you want thicker brownies.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, baking powder, and kosher salt.
  • In a 3-quart saucepan, melt your butter on low heat. Once melted, remove from the heat, and stir in sugar. Stir in your eggs, one at a time, until incorporated. Stir in vanilla. Stir your flour mixture into the sugar mixture until combined. 
  • Pour your batter into the pan, and spread it evenly into the bottom.
  • Bake about 25 minutes. Place pan on wire rack until your brownies are completely cool. 
  • Cut and enjoy!
