Fudgy Walnut Brownies with Chocolate Chips
These fudgy walnut brownies are what proper brownies should be - crusty and shiny on top, chewy in the centre, and bursting with chocolate chip and walnuts in every bite.

Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
Servings 24 brownies
- 3/4 cup Dutch processed unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 2/3 cup unsalted butter melted and slightly cooled
- 1/2 cup espresso or strong coffee room temperature
- 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar packed
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- pinch salt
- 2 pcs large eggs room temperature
- 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
- 5 oz dark chocolate chips
- 3.5 oz walnuts roughly chopped
Preheat oven to 325F. Line a 9x13 baking pan with parchment paper with slight overhang on each side. Set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk 3/4 cup cocoa powder and 1/2 tsp baking soda. Whisk in 2/3 cup melted butter until smooth. Then whisk in 1/2 cup espresso until thick and incorporated.
Add 1 1/2 cups sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 2 tsp vanilla, 2 eggs and a pinch of salt. Stir until shiny and smooth.
Add 1 1/3 cups flour, your chocolate chips and walnuts and gently stir until just combined. Don't overstir.
Transfer the batter to your prepared pan and bake for 30-40 minutes or just until the sides are starting to pull away from the pan and a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out with minimal crumbs.
Let cool in the pan completely before cutting into squares.
