  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder

Preheat oven to 190 degrees celsius. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or lightly coat it with cooking spray; set aside. In a large bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add brown sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Beat until combined, scraping side of bowl occasionally. Beat in egg and vanilla until combined. Alternately add flour and buttermilk, beating on low speed after each addition just until combined.
