With simple ingredients, you’ll be able to easily whip together this no bake brownie batter and satisfy that sweet tooth! Traditional brownie batter from a boxed mix might contain unnecessary items like palm oil. This healthy brownie batter is the perfect treat that you can feel good about. Check out the recipe card at the bottom of this post for exact measurements. Here is the full list of ingredients:
- Flour: This easy recipe calls for all-purpose flour that is heat treated! Heat treating flour allows you to eat raw flour without worrying about any harmful bacteria. You can also use almond flour, oat flour, or coconut flour for a delicious gluten-free edible batter.
- Brown Sugar, Maple Syrup, Salt: The brown sugar adds moisture and sweetness to the batter. You could also use coconut sugar or cane sugar. Maple syrup pairs nicely with the brown sugar for an extra boost of sweetness! Look for 100% pure maple syrup as the healthiest option. A pinch of salt will bring out the sweetness of this homemade brownie batter even more.
- Butter: Use any unsalted butter for this recipe! If you want to make this dairy free brownie batter, look for a plant-based butter. Vegetable oil or coconut oil also work as a vegan-friendly option.
- Instant Coffee Granules: This is an optional ingredient, but I definitely recommend giving it a try! The instant coffee will bring out a rich chocolate flavor in this edible brownie dough.
- Unsweetened Cocoa Powder: The cocoa powder will give the batter a chocolatey flavor. You can also use cacao powder if you prefer a less processed and slightly more bitter taste.
- Almond Milk: Almond milk will help you achieve your desired consistency of the edible batter. You can also try it with soy milk or coconut milk.
- Chocolate Chips: Adding chocolate chips enhances the chocolate flavor and gives a contrast in textures to this edible raw brownie batter recipe. Chocolate chunks are equally delicious! You can leave them out if you want a more mild flavor and less sugar.
This edible brownie dough is easy and quick to make. It is the perfect no bake treat when you have a chocolate craving and don’t want to spend forever in the kitchen. Here is how to make edible brownie batter:
Heat Treat Flour: Heat treat the flour by placing the flour into a microwave safe bowl and microwave, uncovered, on high heat, for 1 minute. Whisk the flour to break up any lumps. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
Mix Wet Ingredients: In a separate mixing bowl whisk together the brown sugar, melted butter, maple syrup and coffee granules, if using, until smooth.
Mix Dry Ingredients: Whisk the cocoa powder and salt through the flour in a large bowl.
Combine Ingredients: Next, add the melted butter mixture to the dry ingredients. Give the mixture a stir, add half of the almond milk and stir again. If you prefer the batter to be a little thinner add remaining almond milk and stir until combined.
Fold And Serve: Fold through the chocolate chips with a wooden spoon. You can serve this fudgy edible brownie batter recipe with a scoop of ice cream or enjoy it on its own! You can serve it cold, room temperature, or even warmed up a bit. For easy fudgy brownies, you can even microwave this batter for one minute in a single serve mug. Enjoy!
💭 Expert Tips
- To thicken, let this edible brownie batter dip chill in the fridge.
- Brownie batter can be frozen. To make it easier when defrosting, divide the batter into smaller pieces with an ice cube tray and freeze. When you defrost simply pop out several cubes and allow them to come to room temperature before enjoying. You can eat them as brownie dough bites or combine into a single serve brownie batter treat!
- Let flour cool. Make sure the heat treated flour cools to room temperature before continuing with the recipe.
- Enhance the chocolate flavor. Instant coffee granules are completely optional, however, it is the perfect way to intensify the natural chocolate flavors from the cocoa powder.
- Edible Brownie Batter From Box: If you’ve wondering if you can make homemade edible brownie batter using boxed brownie mix, the good news is you can! Try to find one with clean ingredients for a healthier choice. You will still need to heat treat the boxed mix before using it. Boxed mixes will require eggs + butter or oil, so to make an easy edible brownie mix from the box, swap the raw eggs for applesauce or almond butter.
- Make It Low Sugar Or Sugar Free: Cut the amount of sugar in this recipe by half to make it even healthier and lower in sugar, and add a dash of vanilla extract to bring out the natural sweetneess even more. To make this into a sugar free brownie batter, use monk fruit or stevia instead of the sugar + maple syrup. You will have to adjust the sugar substitute to taste, I recommend starting with half the amount called for in the recipe and increasing it as needed.
- Vegan Edible Brownie Batter: This is already an egg free brownie batter but to make it completely vegan friendly simply use vegan butter and vegan chocolate chips.
- Gluten Free Brownie Batter: Gluten free flour like almond flour or oat flour can be substituted for all-purpose flour. However, you may need to add an additional 1-2 tablespoons of almond milk.
- Edible Brownie Cookie Dough Bites: Turn this healthy edible brownie batter into cookie dough bites by reducing the almond milk for a thicker consistency. Chill the batter and then roll into bite sized balls and place on a baking sheet. Chill for another hour or so before serving.
- Edible Sugar Cookie Dough: If you are not a chocolate lover, skip the cocoa powder and chocolate chips. You’ll get a tasty edible dough that tastes like sugar cookies! You can even do a half and half to make a brownie batter cookie dough mix!
- Protein Batter: Add in 1-2 scoops of your personal favorite protein powder to the edible brownie dough. Use less flour to keep the consistency the same.
Brownie Batter Topping Ideas
- Fun Drizzles: Try a drizzle of peanut butter, almond butter, caramel sauce, chocolate sauce, vegan nutella, or this white chocolate hazelnut spread.
- Cookies: Crumble in some of these healthy chocolate chip cookies, crushed oreos, sugar cookies, or vegan graham crackers!
- Other Sweet Toppings: Try sprinkles, pieces of candy bars, walnuts, peanuts, pecans, different types of chocolate chips (try white chocolate chips or dark chocolate chunks!), or any of your other favorite add-ins!
While it is not safe to eat regular brownie batter, you can make edible versions! The key is to avoid eating raw egg and raw flour. With a few simple changes from regular batter, you can make edible brownie batter that is totally safe to eat!
Most boxed brownie recipes call for eggs, which you are not supposed to eat uncooked. If you leave the egg out of the recipe and heat treat the mix, you can safely enjoy the raw batter from a box of brownie mix.
If you eat raw brownie batter with eggs and untreated flour, you risk consuming harmful bacteria and germs such as salmonella and E. coli. Following an edible brownie recipe is the best way to enjoy batter without any worries.
To heat treat your flour, pour the amount you need into a microwave safe bowl, and place it in the microwave for one minute. You can also pour it onto a baking sheet and bake it in the oven at 350 degrees F for 5 minutes. Heat-treated flour is completely safe to eat! Heating up the flour kills off any harmful bacteria that may be found in the raw flour.
Store the leftover brownie batter in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 6 days. You can also wrap the edible brownie dough securely in plastic wrap. You may freeze the leftover batter to last longer. If you plan to freeze the entire batch, I recommend separating into smaller portions to make the defrosting process easier.
