I am a sucker for a good brownie recipe. I like consistently good brownies.  I like it to have a flaky crust.  I like it chewy inside.  I like to taste the chocolate. I wanted the best homemade BROWNIE RECIPE and this is it! I use this recipe in my Brownie Cookies and Cookie Dough Brownie Cake!

What is Brownie Mix?

When it comes to baking I also love convenience. And being able to dump stuff in a bowl and make magic.  So this is my attempt to capture the ease of a box brownie mix but without the other icky stuff.

Homemade Brownie Mix

Homemade Brownie Mix Uses

This recipe tastes amazing and easily lends itself to adaptations. For instance, you can add any sort of chocolate chip, white chocolate chip, M&M’s, Nutella, etc. You can also easily double the recipe or pair the brownie mix with frosting.

One thing to note, this brownie mix recipe is not huge.  It yields 9 brownies. (Most people don’t have five kids like me and prefer “normal” size pan of brownies.)

Another bonus? There are only three “wet” ingredients.

World's Easiest Brownie Mix

Butter, eggs, and vanilla.

And the brownie recipe can be made in one bowl too.

How awesome is that?

Optional Add-Ins for Brownies

Morsels – milk chocolate, white chocolate, peanut butter, butterscotch, you name it! I use about 1/2 – 3/4 cup total

Nuts – again, any you prefer. About 3/4 cup works perfect

Nutella – drizzle it on the brownie batter in the pan and swirl if you want it fancy!

Oreos or other cookies – rough chop and add about 1 cup to batter

You can get really creative! 🙂 

Brownie Recipe

I think these brownies are really good, but I especially loved them when paired with a sweet or tart fruit such as raspberries.

And stacked in a pile of three and covered in chocolate sauce.

Brownie Recipe

To make this brownie I used the same recipe above then added chocolate chips to the recipe as well as a couple on top after I took them out of the oven.

Here is my BIG SECRET DON’T TELL ANYONE TIP: Remove them 5-10 before they are done. This is not recommended if you are opposed to eating brownie batter!! But if you love ooey gooey chocolate brownie amazingness then it is worth trying. 🙂

  1. I’ve made this over a dozen times and it’s my wife and my favorite! I’m making it again as I type this!

  2. This is my favorite recipe! I double it, add about 2/3 cups of semi sweet chocolate chips, and bake in 9×13 lightly greased glass pan for exactly 26 minutes in my convection oven. Perfect every time! Thanks

  3. How would I measure out enough of the dry mix if I were going to say make five times this recipe. It would be a great gift for my young mom friends. I’d be concerned that not all the ingredients would be equally blended. Thanks I really enjoy your recipes!
