Easy Cocoa Brownies



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8×8 non-stick baking pan with butter.
  2. Place butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla in a mixing bowl. Gently stir together the ingredients with a rubber spatula. Sift cocoa powder into the bowl with the wet ingredients. Then add flour, salt and baking powder. Mix just to combine. Add chocolate chips, if desired, and mix again.
  3. Spread batter into greased pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
