Eating brownie batter is one of my favorite past times. Whenever I'm making brownies, my favorite thing to do is dip my finger in the raw brownie batter and take a taste.

Everyone tells you not to do that because of harmful bacteria, so I made an edible brownie dough instead. It's one of my favorite recipes for when I want something quick and easy but don't feel like baking or cooking.

Why You'll Love this Recipe!

This easy recipe only requires 8 pantry staple ingredients and 10 minutes of your time. It's easily customizable with endless options of mix-ins and:

  • No baking in an oven
  • Egg-free
  • Safe to eat (the flour is heat-treated)
  • Can be easily customized to fit any diet (see the substitutions section)
the ingredients to make edible brownie batter - brown sugar, butter, flour, cocoa powder, dark chocolate chips, vanilla extract, milk, and chocolate chunks.

Ingredient Notes

Check out the full list of ingredients to make your edible dough!

  • Cocoa Powder: for that beautiful chocolate flavor!
  • Butter
  • Brown Sugar: brown sugar is my favorite for this brownie batter recipe. It adds a lots of sweet caramel notes that make this recipe irresistible.
  • Vanilla Extract:
  • All-Purpose Flour - this recipe calls for raw flour. Treat flour by microwaving it for 1 minute to get rid of any harmful bacteria. (see the recipe card)
  • Milk: the milk loosens up the dry ingredients to make the brownie batter creamy and fudgy. Yum!
  • Chocolate Chunks and/or Chips: I love using mini chocolate chips with chocolate chunks for a fun texture that gives you loads of chocolate in every bite. You can omit the chips entirely if prefer.

How to make Edible Brownie Batter

  • First step - Heat flour in the microwave for 1 minute in a microwave-safe bowl, until hot. (if flour becomes clumpy, this is OK. It will become smooth while assembling the brownie batter)
  • In a separate large mixing bowl, add melted butter and brown sugar. Whisk together until sugar begins to dissolve, about one minute. Then add vanilla extract.
  • Add flour, cocoa powder, and salt to the mix and fold together until batter is smooth and all patches of flour are gone.
  • Fold in dark chocolate chips and chocolate chunks and add milk.

Storing Leftover Brownie Batter

The best way to store the leftover batter is to keep it in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It'll last for about a week. Also, best part - if you freeze the batter, it'll taste like a frozen brownie - SO good!

Variations

  • Add fruit to your brownie batter! Raspberries are especially good with chocolate! You can also try adding bananas, blueberries,
  • Try adding a peanut butter swirl for an ultra-rich and fudgy edible brownie batter! You can also try using cashew butter too!
  • Add fun mix-ins like nuts, sprinkles, broken up candy bars or peanut butter cups (my fave add ins), and/or marshmallows!
  • Take this regular brownie batter and make it ultra chocolatey by adding a ½ tsp of espresso powder!

Make Edible Brownie Batter using Boxed Brownie Mix

Simply microwave the a box of brownie mix in a bowl for 1 minutes and add melted butter and milk until the desired consistency is reached.

Fold in chocolate chips and chunks and sprinkle a little flake salt on top if you'd like 🙂

If using boxed brownie mix, make sure to not use a brownie mix with chocolate chips! The chips will melt when treating the flour in the microwave and will become a sticky mess.

Make this brownie mix vegan by using vegan butter or coconut oil, plant-based milk, and you favorite vegan chocolate.

Natural Sweeteners

If you'd like to use a natural sweetener, try maple syrup instead of brown sugar. Start with 3 tablespoons and increased based on your desired taste. You can also try using cacao powder instead of cocoa powder for a healthier version! Of note, cacao powder is quite bitter so adjust accordingly!

Tips

  • If you prefer a looser or thicker batter, use more/less milk. I suggested 6 tbsps for a thick batter, however, use 8-10 tbsps if you prefer a more looser texture or keep adding until you get the desired consistency.
  • Use a mix of chocolate chips and peanut butter chips in your edible brownie batter for a super chocolatey treat! Mixing the chocolates are my guilty pleasure!
  • If you love this edible brownie batter recipe, you'll love this edible cookie dough recipe too!
  • Pro tip: For an easy but decadent dessert, eat brownie batter with bowl of ice cream - it's SO good!

FAQs

Can I make this a small batch?

Yes, cut the recipe in half to make a small batch!

Why do I need to treat flour?

Because no baking is involved in this recipe, the germs in the flour are not removed. Raw flour is unsafe so you must heat treat flour. It is important to heat treat the flour to kill off any germs and prevent food poisoning.

How long does brownie batter last?

About 7 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

How do I heat treat flour?

You can microwave the flour in the microwave for about 1-1 ½ minutes. Also, you can spread flour out on a baking sheet and heat in the oven at 350 degrees F for 5 minutes.
