Dolly is Cooking Brownies

I was in the mood for brownies the other day and these were what I came up with.  The coconut oil arrived the day before and I declared that I was going to use more of it because it just might be better for us than some of the oils out there.  


1 cup unbleached all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 cups sugar
2/3 cup Cocoa
1/8 cup Hershey's Chocolate Syrup
1/2 cup Organic Coconut Oil
1/2 cup softened butter
2 tsp. real vanilla extract
4 eggs
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Combine flour, salt, baking powder in a medium mixing bowl and whisk together. Add cocoa and sugar into flour mixture and gently whisk to mix.
Combine in another bowl coconut oil and softened butter whisk to cream together.  Beat eggs into the butter mixture then add the chocolate syrup and vanilla extract.
Pour wet ingredients into dry and mix well.
Stir in walnuts
Pour into two 9 x 9 baking pans/dishes sprayed with oil or buttered bottoms.

Bake 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until brownies pull away from sides of pans.
Cool then cut and enjoy.

Notes* You can half this recipe for one 9 x 9 baking pan if you wish
You can also mix together your dry ingredients and store in your pantry or freezer for up to 6 months
Then take out and add your syrup, eggs, butter, coconut oil and vanilla when you go to bake.


  1. These look amazing. I never thought of using coconut oil for brownies but thats a great idea.

    1. Hey Kim,
      Thank you! I thought I'd try to use coconut oil more often. I hear it is better for you than some oils. Hope so anyway. The brownies were pretty good. I'll let you know of any other things I personally find out about the oil and recipes.

  2. Those sound delicious, Dolly. I have been using coconut oil more, too. It is all my daughter uses and she uses it for a moisturizer and her skin looks just great! xo Diana

    1. Thanks Diana! It is amazing the things you can make with coconut oil! She is a good model for the merits of using it, that is great! I see makeup and skincare mixtures and already make my own deodorant with it. I finally made my first toothpaste, had the ingredients sitting in the closet for a year. My Carly cooks with it now too. It isn't cheap but worth using over GMO crop oils out there....xo Dolly
