Carol’s Chocolate Brownies…

This is my truly tried tested old faithful recipe for brownies and verified by everyone who has tried it….I don’t know why I have never shared it with you here on WP…I thought I had but never mind I now have shared it for you chocolate brownie lovers to enjoy! This recipe is part of my 20%… If you are wondering it is my 80% healthy eating and 20% indulgence plan…And indulgence it certainly is and very enjoyable BUT if you read the ingredients it is as healthy as a cholate brownie can be….. lol

Chocolate Brownies.

Homemade Chocolate Brownies


  • 1 cup of oil ( I use coconut oil)
  • 1 1/2 cups of sugar
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 2/3 cup of good cocoa powder
  • 1 cup walnuts roughly chopped
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tsp of vanilla essence
  • 1/2 tsp of baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Let’s Bake!

Mix oil, sugar and vanilla together then beat in the eggs.
Combine all dry ingredients except for walnuts and stir into mixture.
Add walnuts.
Put batter into a prepared baking dish and cook for about 1 hr on 175C/ 350F.

N.B. I sometimes add a 1/2tsp of dried chilli …those of you who know me know I just have to..ha ha

Next time I am going to add just a few cranberries or blueberries and maybe lose the walnuts and add some ground almonds…..
Also depending on what I have in the cupboard, I have used half oil and half-melted butter…

Homemade Chocolate Brownies

This is probably the best brownie mix I have made as the top is nice and crispy but with a gooey underneath…just how I like it or maybe just how this temperamental oven of mine works…lol


About Carol Taylor:

Enjoying life in The Land Of Smiles I am having so much fun researching, finding new, authentic recipes both Thai and International to share with you. New recipes gleaned from those who I have met on my travels or are just passing through and stopped for a while. I hope you enjoy them.

I love shopping at the local markets, finding fresh, natural ingredients, new strange fruits and vegetable ones I have never seen or cooked with. I am generally the only European person and attract much attention and I love to try what I am offered and when I smile and say Aroy or Saab as it is here in the north I am met with much smiling.

Some of my recipes may not be in line with traditional ingredients and methods of cooking but are recipes I know and have become to love and maybe if you dare to try you will too. You will always get more than just a recipe from me as I love to research and find out what other properties the ingredients I use contain to improve our health and wellbeing.

The environment is also something I am passionate about and there is a definite shift towards this on my blog this year…

Exciting for me hence the title of my blog, Retired No One Told Me! I am having a wonderful ride and don’t want to get off, so if you wish to follow me on my adventures, then welcome! I hope you enjoy the ride also and if it encourages you to take a step into the unknown or untried, you know you want to…….Then, I will be happy!

Thank you once again for reading this post I hope you all have a great week xx

    “As healthy as a chocolate brownie can be,”—that’s good enough for me. I’m going to give these a try, Carol. I don’t cook much, but I do like to bake. I guess that’s why I have such a trim figure.🤣🤣
