  • Add walnuts, chips, or other extras. Fold into the batter.
  • Pour batter and spread evenly into the baking pan.

*If using molasses, take out 1 tbsp. of maple syrup.
This is a basic brownie recipe so it's very customizable. You can use any nuts instead of walnuts as well as white chocolate chips instead of dark chocolate. Cacao nibs are also very good in this recipe.
