  • large bowl
  • 8x8 pan


  • 1/2 cup oat flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 4 Tbsp mini chocolate chips, divided
  • 1/2 tsp flaked sea salt, divided


  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly spray an 8x8 glass pan with non-stick cooking spray. Set pan aside.
  • Add all ingredients, EXCEPT 2 Tbsp chocolate chips and the 1/2 tsp salt, to a medium-sized bowl and mix until combined.
  • Pour batter into the greased glass pan. Smooth out the batter and top with the remaining 2 Tbsp of mini chocolate chips. Then sprinkle with 1/4 tsp sea salt. (You will use the other 1/4 tsp salt after the brownies are baked!)
  • Bake for 18-20 minutes or until top is slightly crackled. The brownies should be set, but an inserted toothpick should NOT come out completely clean. If it does they are over-baked.
  • Before serving, sprinkle brownies with remaining 1/4 tsp flaked sea salt. Store leftovers in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 3 days.


To make oat flour add oatmeal to food processor or Magic Bullet and blend until consistency of flour.
