  • 2oz (1/4 Cup) Water
  • 1oz (2 Tbsp) Unsalted Butter
  • 250 Grams(1 1/4 cups) Granulated Sugar
  • 90 Grams (Scant Cup) Dutch Cocoa Powder
  • 3oz (scant 1/3 cup) Vegetable Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Large Egg Yolk and 1 Large Egg, at room temp.
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Cornstarch/ Cornflour
  • 60 Grams (scant 1/2 cup) Blue Diamond Almond Flour
  • 4oz Chocolate (chips, chunks, or bars chopped)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350F/180C and line a 9X9 or 8X8 square pan with foil and grease heavily.
  2. In a large pot add the water, butter, sugar, and cocoa powder. Cook on medium heat for 2-3 minutes until it is all combined together.
  3. Take off of the heat, let sit for 5 minutes then whisk in the oil and vanilla. The oil may not be completely combined but go ahead and add the egg and egg yolk. Whisk to combine.
  4. Add the baking powder, salt, cornstarch, and mix to combine. Gently add the almond flour by using a spatula to fold in until just combined, just before there are no flour streaks add your chocolate chunks/ chips. Do not over mix, this will affect the end product.
  5. Pour into prepared pan and bake 30-35 minutes. Everyone’s oven is different, for me, the brownies always bake within 30-33 minutes, but I would start checking at 29 minutes for your oven. Don't over bake the brownies. You want a toothpick in the center to come out with moist crumbs, not completely dry. Place the pan on a wire rack to cool completely before cutting.
  6. Store in an air-tight container on the counter for up to 4 days.
