I made half a recipe in an 8-inch square pan. I wanted to try this recipe with some variations so my granddaughter could eat them. I replaced the butter with coconut oil; used coconut sugar instead of regular sugar; and I used non-gluten flour. The brownies had a slight coconut taste to them, but they were quite good. Next time, I will make the whole recipe. This recipe works well with substitutions, so if you have diet restrictions,, this is a good recipe to try.

This is my favorite brownie recipe! It's quick to make, the cleanup is easy, and it's a great middle-of-the-road brownie that isn't too rich and isn't too weak with the chocolate. I want to try drizzling a white chocolate glaze over the top of the batch after it cools.
