6 eggs
2 & 2/3 cups sugar
1 & 1/2 cups potato starch
3/4 cup cocoa
3/4 cup oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup coconut, optional

Chocolate Glaze:

1 cup powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons oil
2 Tablespoons hot water
2 Tablespoons cocoa

Preheat the oven to 350.

Place all the ingredients, except for the nuts and coconut, into a large bowl. Mix together until smooth. Add in the nuts and optional coconut.

Pour this out into a 9x13 pan that has been lined with parchment baking paper. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until a cake tester inserted into the brownies' center comes out mostly clean, and the top is light brown and crispy. Do not overbake as then it will become too dry. Remove from oven immediately and allow it to cool completely.

In a separate small bowl, mix together the glaze ingredients with a spoon, until smooth. Spread over the cooled brownies. Allow it to set for a few minutes and then slice.

Freezes wonderfully, even glazed. If you freeze it when already glazed, slice them first. When defrosting, uncover the brownies while frozen so the glaze will not defrost all over the foil you covered them with.
