  • ¾ cup butter salted or unsalted
  • cup dark chocolate chips divided in recipe
  • 1 tsp espresso powder optional
  • ¾ tsp sea salt
  • cups sugar
  • 5 large eggs cold eggs
  • cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder I used dark cocoa powder, but regular is fine
  • cups flour all purpose


  • Cut the butter into small slices and add to the Ninja Foodi Cold & Hot Blender. Add 1 cup of the chocolate chips. Put the lid on the blender and select cook mode on high. Cook for 3 minutes, then pulse several times and turn the heat down to low. Scrape the sides if needed. Cook on low for 2 more minutes. Add in 1 tsp espresso powder. Pulse until smooth.
  • Add the salt and sugar, press the pulse button for about 5 seconds. Add the eggs, oil, and vanilla extract. Press the pulse button for about 5 seconds. Scrape down the sides. Make sure the batter is well incorporated, pulse again if needed.
  • Sift the flour and the cocoa powder before adding to the blender. Add the mixture in ¼-½ cup increments, pulse for about 5 seconds between each addition. Or you can use the low blend function. If there is remaining flour on top, use the tamper tool or a spatula to push it down into the blender. You may need to stir the batter to incorporate the last addition of flour/cocoa powder. Use the low blend setting to finishing combining the batter. Scrape down the sides.
  • Once all the flour/cocoa powder is incorporated, add in the remaining ¾ cup of chocolate chips and stir with a spatula.
  • Line a 11.5"X 9" with either parchment or a silpat. If using parchment paper, coat the bottom of the pan with butter or crisco before placing the parchment on the pan.
  • Pour the brownie batter into the prepared pan and place it on the rack in the oven. Set the bake function on 325°F for 35 minutes. Remove and let cool for at least 15 minutes.
  • Cut and serve!
