Source: The New Enchanted Broccoli Forrest

1 cup flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup honey
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 oz. unsweetened chocolate
1/2 cup butter (1 stick) or oil
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 350. Combine flour, cocoa, salt, & baking powder in bowl.
2. Place honey in another bowl, and beat at high speed with an electric mixer for about 2 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each. Stir in vanilla.
3. In small saucepan, melt the butter over low heat; stir in unsweetened chocolate until melted. If using oil, melt the chocolate alone (in double boiler) and stir in the oil.
4. Beat the melted chocolate mixture into the honey mixture. Fold in the dry ingredients & chocolate chips (& optional nuts); stir until well-combined. Spread into greased 8-inch square pan. Bake 35-40 minutes or until cooked in the middle. Cool completely before slicing.
