I haven't been to the grocery store in over five weeks. While a lot of stuff is available from,, and, I can't get eggs or butter (butter can be obtained for a $30. cooler/dry ice shipping fee). This recipe uses powdered eggs and coconut oil (which are easily available for shipping).

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.


1 cup coconut oil (substituted for 1 cup softened butter)

1 cup white sugar

1 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

6 tablespoons egg powder and 7.5 tablespoons water (substitute for 3 eggs)

1 cup flour

2/3 cup cocoa

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

3/4 cup milk chocolate chips

3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Step 1:

Blend coconut oil, sugars and vanilla in mixing bowl.

Step 2:

Prepare the powdered eggs. This is my first time using these. Put the powder in a cup and add water. Stir and crush the powder until there are no lumps floating on top.

Step 3:

Add the "eggs" to the sugar mixture and mix.

Step 4:

Combine flour, cocoa and baking powder. Gradually add and stir.

Fold in chocolate chips.

Step 5:

Spread batter in a greased (Pam spray) 13" x 9" pan.

Step 6:

Bake for 19 minutes at 350 degrees F.

Cool, cut and eat :)
