My family always complained that baked goods that were kosher for Passover tasted terrible, so I took my regular brownie recipe and created a flour and leavening-free version that tastes just as good as the non-Passover version!

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8x8 inch square pan.

  • Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Remove from the heat and stir in the unsweetened chocolate. Set aside.

  • In a medium bowl, beat the eggs and sugar with an electric mixer for about 5 minutes. Reduce the speed to low, and pour in the chocolate and butter, then stir in the vanilla. In a separate bowl, stir together the matzo meal, potato starch and salt. Use a spoon to stir into the chocolate mixture until well blended. Mix in the walnuts or chocolate chips if using. Pour into the prepared pan and spread evenly.

  • Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until the brownies are dry on top and begin to pull away from the sides.

For a passover brownie recipe this was really exceptional. People were remarking how incredibly moist these were and adding the chocolate chips in was a real surprise plus to them. Definitely on the menu for next year's seder! Read More

This is great for Pesach. I don't use matzo meal so I just sub in extra potato starch for it. Much tastier and cheaper than store bought. I plan on making it again this holiday! Read More
