So, get ready to embark on a culinary adventure as you whip up a batch of these irresistible bite-size CBD brownies.
- 10 tablespoons (140grams) coconut oil (or butter)
- 1 ¼ cup (250grams) xylitol (or granulated sugar)
- ¾ cup (65grams) unsweetened natural cocoa powder
- ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 tablespoon of Kynd CBD Oil
- ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 2 large free-range eggs (cold)
- ½ cup (65grams) all-purpose flour
- 2/3 cup (75grams) pecan or walnut pieces, toasted (optional)
Instructions to make:
Let’s dive into the step-by-step instructions for creating these delectable chocolate brownies:
- Prepare the baking pan. To ensure easy removal of the brownies, line the bottom and sides of an 8×8 square baking pan with parchment paper or aluminium foil. Simply cut two sheets of parchment
- paper to fit the width of the pan, placing one sheet in the pan and creasing the corners for a secure fit. Add a second sheet perpendicular to the first one, covering all four sides of the pan. Preheat the oven to 325°F.
- Melt the coconut oil or butter. In a medium heatproof bowl, combine the coconut oil (or butter), sugar, cocoa powder, and salt. Place the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water and stir occasionally until the oil (/butter) is melted. Continue cooking until the mixture becomes smooth and hot to the touch. Remove the bowl from the heat and let it cool until it reaches a warm temperature. If the mixture appears slightly gritty, don’t worry, it will become smooth again in the brownie batter.
- Mix the batter. Now add the CBD oil to the warm oil (butter) mixture and stir to combine. Add the vanilla extract and eggs, one at a time, stirring well after each addition. Then, add the flour and beat the batter vigorously for 40 strokes until it becomes smooth and glossy. If desired, fold in chopped nuts or any other mix-ins of your choice.
- Now bake. Transfer the batter to the prepared baking pan, spreading it evenly to create a smooth layer. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out slightly moist with batter. To ensure the brownies are fully baked, check for other visual cues such as a firm centre that doesn’t wiggle when shaken and slight cracking on the top surface. Allow the brownies to cool completely in the pan placed on a cooling rack.
- Cut the brownies. Once the brownies have completely cooled, lift them out of the pan by holding onto the parchment paper. Place the brownies on a large plate or baking sheet and freeze them for 30 minutes to firm up. Using a sharp knife, cut the brownies into 36 bite-size pieces.
How do I Store my CBD Brownies?
Individually wrap each brownie in waxed paper or foil and store them in an airtight container or resealable plastic bag. For optimal preservation of the cannabinoids in the CBD Chocolate brownies, keep them in a cool, dark place. Refrigerate the brownies for up to two weeks or freeze them for longer-term storage of up to six months.
How Long Do CBD Brownies Last?

Can You Add Mix-Ins to CBD Brownies?
Absolutely! Just like regular brownies, CBD Chocolate brownies can be enhanced with various mix-ins for added flavour and texture. Consider incorporating chopped nuts, nut butter, fruit or jam, caramel, butterscotch, crushed cookies, pretzels, or chocolate chips to take your CBD brownies to the next level.
