Grease 8"x 8" baking pan with coconut oil. Pour mix in prepared dish.

Allow to cool on rack 10-15 min at least, better completely. Cut in squares.

Be careful lifting the squares out of the dish, they tend to fall apart unless very cold.

Keep in the fridge (I like the brownies best cold out of the fridge. 

These brownies are fudgy and sooo delicious.
