Dairy-free, fudgy Coconut Oil Brownies are baked in a cast iron skillet for a rich, decadent treat. This skillet brownie is perfect both spooned warm from the pan with ice cream or cut into wedges.


  • ½ cup coconut oil, measured in liquid state
  • 5 ounces semi-sweet or dark chocolate, chopped
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ cup flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease a 10” skillet very well with butter, coconut oil, or baking spray.
  2. Using a water bath or the microwave, slowly melt the coconut oil and chocolate until smooth and melted, stirring frequently. (If using the microwave, only heat in 15 second intervals, stirring between.)
  3. To the coconut oil mixture, whisk in the sugar and brown sugar until smooth. Whisk in the eggs and vanilla.
  4. Sift together the flour, salt, and cocoa powder. Add to the bowl and fold into the batter until completely incorporated, but do not overmix.
  5. Pour the brownie batter into the skillet and transfer to the oven. Bake until the edges are set and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out mostly clean with a few crumbs, about 25 minutes. This will result in a fudgy brownie.
  6. Let the brownie cool 5 minutes and serve warm with ice cream, or let cool completely for an hour and cut into 8-10 wedges.


Substitution Tip: Use dark chocolate to make this brownie dairy-free.

Cooking Tip: You could also make this recipe into 4 individual brownie skillets. Bake in 3 ½” mini cast iron pans and serve each topped with ice cream.

Storage Tip: This recipe will keep wrapped airtight in plastic for 2-3 days at room temperature and remain fudgy and moist.
