Walnut Brownies takes any traditional brownie up a notch with its toasted nutty bite mixed in all its rich chocolate glory.


  • 10 tablespoons (140 grams) unsalted butter, sliced
  • 2 cups (340 grams) semisweet chocolate chips, divided
  • 3/4 cup (165 grams) brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup (150 grams) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (40 grams) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 large eggs (150 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon (5 grams) pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup (90 grams) all purpose flour
  • 1 cup (112 grams) chopped walnuts, toasted
  • 1/2 cup (56 grams) walnut halves



  1. Heat oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a 9×9 in (23×23 cm) baking pan with aluminum foil leaving excess foil hang over two opposite sides for easy removal. Grease and flour bottom and sides of the foil; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, melt butter and 1 cup (170 grams) of chocolate chips in the microwave on HIGH setting for 30 seconds, stir.  Reheat for another 30 seconds, stir until fully melted. If larger than pea size pieces remain, you may reheat for 10 seconds then stir.  Residual heat will melt any butter or chocolate smaller than the size of a pea.
  3. Whisk in both sugars and cocoa to cool the butter-chocolate mixture.  Beat in eggs, vanilla and salt vigorously for 1 to 2 minutes. 
  4. Using a rubber spatula, fold in the flour, 1 cup of toasted chopped walnuts and the remaining cup of chocolate chips. Keep folding and scraping the sides of the bowl until flour is blended with the cocoa. Batter will be thick. Pour batter and spread evenly into the prepared pan.  Sprinkle over the top the remaining 1/2 cup of walnut halves.
  5. Bake for 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean or with a few dry crumbs.  Allow to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing brownies to a wire rack to further cool. Cut into 9 squares. ENJOY!
