Walnut Chocolate Brownies made in 30 minutes with no stand mixer that taste just like cafeteria brownies you grew up with!
Walnut Chocolate Brownies are a staple in our house because the base of these brownies is my classic one bowl brownie recipe I’ve used in SO MANY recipes on my blog and it’s because the recipe is as easy as it is completely tested and a winner every time.
Walnut Chocolate Brownies are an easy dessert or after school snack you won’t mind baking because all you need is a large glass bowl an a whisk. In just five minutes of prep these brownies are ready for baking.
They’re totally fuss free and chewy and have a great chocolate flavor without being overwhelmingly sweet or decadent. The perfect kid brownies!

Tools used in the making of Walnut Chocolate Brownies:
8×8 Baking Pan: This pan is perfect for brownies with tall, straight sides and a great nonstick coating.
Unsweetened Cocoa Powder – This cocoa powder gives an amazing, dark, rich chocolate flavor. I also highly recommend the Trader Joe’s Brand of cocoa powder.
