  • 6 tbsp Kerry Gold unsalted grass-fed butter
  • 1 cup 6 ounces Ghirardelli bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 organic large eggs
  • 1/4 cup white all purpose flour
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 cup walnuts, dry roasted, then chopped


  • Start by dry roasting the walnuts. Once you smell the aroma and they start browing, remove them from the heat.</br></br>
  • Once cooled, roughly chop the walnuts.</br></br>
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.</br></br>
  • Grease a baking tray with coconut oil spray, and line with parchment paper.</br></br>
  • In a pot on low heat, combine butter and chocolate chips.</br></br>
  • Mix until smooth and silky as follows:</br></br>
  • Remove from the heat and add sugar and vanilla extract.</br></br>
  • Using a whisk, mix the batter for a few minutes until the batter is smooth.</br></br>
  • Once the batter is cool, add egg one at a time. DO NOT ADD EGGS TO HOT CHOCOLATE ELSE IT WILL SCRAMBLE. Mix in between.</br></br>
  • This is what you should have once both eggs are added and well mixed. The batter should no longer be grainy, but smooth and glossy.</br></br>
  • Add flour. Mix until the flour is well incorporated, but do not over mix.</br></br>
  • Add walnuts and fold.</br></br>
  • Pour batter into the baking tray.</br></br>
  • Into the oven. Bake for 25 - 30 minutes. I baked mine for 25 minutes for a more gooey effect. DO NOT OVER BAKE.</br></br>
  • Out of the oven. Cut into 16 square.</br></br>


* White/Wheat Flour: I have tried this recipe with white flour and wheat flour, it's delicious either way.
