Cow-free Brownies

So, one of my boyfriend's co-workers "can't eat anything that comes from a cow," meaning no milk products.  I'd think that would mean no dairy, but he can eat eggs.  Anyway, he likes brownies and I thought I'd try and come up with a brownie recipe.

Stacey's Cow-Free Brownie Ingredients:
1/4c coconut oil, organic
3/4c cooking oil
3 eggs, organic
1 oz 99% unsweetened chocolate (Scharffen-Berger)
2 tsp vanilla bean paste
2c sugar, organic

1c unbleached white flour, organic
2/3c unsweetened cocoa powder, organic (Dagoba)
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder

1c semi-sweet chocolate chips (make sure there are no milk products in here)

Preheat the oven to 350F. Melt the coconut oil in the microwave with the unsweetened chocolate.  Add the cooking oil and mix.  Add the eggs and vanilla bean paste and whisk with a fork. Then mix in the sugar. I wish I mixed all the rest of the dry ingredients separately and then put it in, but I didn't - I threw everything on top and mixed it in with a rubber scraper.

Bake for 22 minutes, rotating once at the halfway point.

Result? A little gooey, but if you like that, then keep it the way it is.  I think next time I'll add another 1/2 tsp of baking powder and bake for a few more minutes.  Will let you know what the co-worker thinks in an update. :)
