Homemade Brownie Mix

5 from 1 review

Healthy brownie mix recipe from scratch is WAY better than a Betty Crocker package and uses just 5 ingredients.



Dry Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar (I used Turbinado)
  • 1/3 cup cocoa (I used raw cacao)
  • 1/2 cup flour (I used all-purpose einkorn)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup add-ins: chocolate chips, chopped walnuts, chopped pecans, caramel pieces (optional)

Wet Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 8 Tbsp (1 stick) butter, melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Combine all dry ingredients except add-ins in a 16 oz glass jar. Fill to the top with add-ins, if using.
  2. Label the jar with the list of wet ingredients and the following instructions: In a mug, melt butter and set aside to cool slightly. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk the two eggs with the vanilla. Add in the entire jar of brownie mix and stir gently. Pour in the melted butter and mix just until everything is incorporated. Pour batter into an 8” x 8” baking dish and bake for 20-22 minutes at 350F.
  3. Alternatively, store in your pantry for up to 6 months**.


** Each ingredient on their own is self-stable for much longer than 6 months, but I capped it at 6 months because I don’t know what type of add-ins you’re using… which may or may not effect the shelf-life of the mix as a whole. If you want the brownie mix to be shelf-stale for longer than 6 months, prepare the dry ingredients and leave out the add-ins. Then incorporate the add-ins when you’re ready to bake brownies.
