Fudgy Cocoa Brownies

1 1/3 cups all purpose flour

3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

2 eggs

1/3 cup vegetable oil

1/3 cup butter, melted

2 cups sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup black coffee, at room temperature (can substitute water)

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (optional but amazing)

1 cup chopped nuts (also optional)

Sift together flour, cocoa, salt and baking soda; set aside.

In a large mixing bowl combine eggs, vegetable oil, melted butter, sugar, vanilla and coffee and beat on low speed until well combined and smooth. Slowly mix in flour mixture and mix until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts (if using).

Spray a 13x9 baking pan with cooking spray then spread brownie batter evenly into pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
