Solavore Best Brownies

A foolproof solar oven brownie recipe from the Solavore blog

We are confident in calling these Solavore's BEST brownies. With just eight ingredients, they go together in a snap and the results are consistently good. You'll need about an hour of sun for these to bake.


1/2 c butter, melted
1 c sugar
2 eggs
1 t vanilla
1/3 c cocoa
1/2 c flour
1/4 t salt
1/4 t baking powder


Combine butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla in a medium bowl and mix well. Next, mix the dry ingredients in a second larger bowl. Add the butter mixture to the flour mixture and stir until combined.

Pour into a greased 9x9 pan.  Sprinkle with pecan slices if desired.  Bake in your preheated solar oven until somewhat firm to the touch.  Approximate cook time is 1 hour. This recipe is very forgiving, so don't worry if you leave it for longer.
