Everything you love about the taste of the dough from your favorite brownie recipes but without any raw eggs or flour, this fudgy edible brownie batter recipe is the best way to get your chocolate fix. With just a handful of main ingredients and a single mixing bowl, you can be enjoying this perfect treat in a couple minutes from now!
Let's be honest. The best part about making fudgy brownies is stealing a little of the raw brownie batter to taste.
But.. With a possible risk of food poisoning from raw flour and raw eggs, regular brownie batter may not be the best thing to consume.
And while you could fuss with making heat treated flour or make an edible dough from oat flour brownies if you used ground rolled oats and omitted the eggs, sometimes you want to enjoy that rich chocolate flavor now!
Enter this easy edible brownie batter recipe. A no-bake treat (like these Copycat Eatmore Candy Bars) that has the power to satisfy even the strongest chocolate craving, you can whip up a small batch of this in minutes.
And one of my favorite things is that not only is it an incredibly easy recipe (no need to fuss with melted butter or bringing the ingredients to room temperature), this edible brownie dough is also naturally sweetened (just like these Coconut Flour Brownies are).
- Almond Butter- Peanut butter, Macadamia Nut Butter or sunflower seed are also great options. Check out this post on Almond Butter Substitutes for more ideas.
- Cocoa Powder- You can use cacao powder instead for extra antioxidants.
- Maple Syrup- Honey or agave nectar will also work or see this post for more substitutions. I don't recommend using a granulated sweetener such as brown sugar as you need the sticky properties of the sweetener to help achieve the right edible batter consistency.
- Vanilla Extract
- Espresso Powder- I love adding a bit to any recipe with cocoa as it is the best way to deepen the chocolate flavor but it can be left out if needed.
- Salt- A little bit of salt helps to balance out the sweetness and further enhance the chocolate flavor.
1. Mix. Add all of the ingredients to a large bowl and use a spoon or electric mixer to thoroughly combine. Fold in your favorite add-ins as desired.
Leftovers and Storage
To Store: Store leftover brownie batter in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 1 month (I like to freeze individual portions in an ice cube tray or roll them into balls).
*If you'd like to avoid leftovers, you can change the serving size to "1" and the recipe card will automatically adjust the measurements for you.
Make it Your Own
Customize this brownie batter to include your favorite mix-ins such as:
- Chocolate chips or chocolate chunks
- Chopped nuts
- Chopped candy canes
Protein Brownie Batter: Add ¼ cup of plain protein powder (I have only tested it with pea protein isolate) and ¼ cup of water to make it a more filling treat.
Brownie Batter Balls: Scoop tablespoons of batter, roll into balls and chill for 1 hour (this is my go-to way to divide up the leftovers!).
You can obviously enjoy this edible brownie batter all on its own by the spoonful! But it is also great served as a:
- Dip- Take a note from chocolate hummus and try it with:
- Fruit such as strawberries, grapes or apples
- Graham crackers
- Spread- try it on toast or rice cakes.
No, this recipe was created to be eaten raw. If you'd like to make an edible brownie batter that you can also bake, try making these 3 Ingredient Banana Brownies.
