Salted Brownie Cookies


Servings: 11 large cookies
  • 6 oz (160 grams) dark chocolate ( 60-70 % cocoa), chopped
  • 1/3 cup ( 80 grams) unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup ( 100 grams) brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup ( 67 grams) granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Flaky sea salt, for sprinkling


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 F (180 C). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

  2. In a medium bowl combine the flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking powder. Set aside.
  3. In a heatproof bowl over a small pan of simmering water, melt together the chocolate and butter. Once melted, remove from the heat.
  4. Using a hand mixer with the whisk attachment, whisk both sugars and the eggs on medium-high speed for 6-7 minutes or until tripled in volume.
  5. Gently fold the chocolate mixture into the egg mixture until just incorporated.
  6. Fold in the flour mixture using a spatula until just incorporated and no flour clumps remain. The batter will be very sticky.
  7. Use a large (3 tablespoon) cookie scoop to transfer the batter to the lined baking sheets. Space them at least 1 inch apart as they will spread during baking.
  8. Bake the cookies for 10 minutes.
  9. Cool the cookies on the baking sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Sprinkle with flaky salt.

  10. Enjoy!
