so as i read some of the bad reviews for this recipe i had to laugh. for any recipe, cooking time is based on the creator's oven, not your oven at home. all ovens are not the same & if you know your oven and how it cooks, heats etc then you will know that you either need to add more baking time or decrease, maybe up the temperature, depends on your oven. if you took the brownies out and there was a lot of oil still on the top then guess what? they need more time in the oven, common sense, nothing to do with the recipe creator, just know your oven. that being said i thought these were a good mix of cakey & a little fudgey as well. i used dark cocoa 85 % but i didn't have enough so i added some unsweetened cocoa powder as well. my only other changes, i used white whole wheat flour which is a finer wheat flour to use and your baked goods come out really light, not like when you use regular whole wheat flour. i used truvia instead of sugar but i only used 1 cup of sugar & it wasn't a full cup. that's the only part of this recipe that i take a star off of, 2 cups of sugar is way too much sugar, were making brownies not candy. i cook with less sugar period so i might be biased but i didn't feel 2 cups were necessary so i used just 1 and they taste great, not overly sweet, just right. i might try it wit 2 eggs next time just to see if there's any change in the texture but this will be my go to recipe
