Made From Scratch Brownies: Mix Edition

I love these brownies! I came up with them as a way to make brownies without eggs but they are so simple they are quickly becoming a favorite in our household. Here is the mix version of the original recipe which you can find here: Made From Scratch Brownies.

These brownies are delicious and I love having the homemade mix on hand to be able to make a quick dessert whenever I need it! This also makes a great gift when packaged in a mason jar. Convenience + made from scratch? I will take it!

Homemade Brownie Mix

Mix in the jar:

  • 1 1/3 c. flour
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1/3 c. unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 /2 t. baking powder
  • 1/2 t. salt

And on the front of the jar you can put this:

"Add 1/2 c. water, 1/2 c. oil, and 1/2 t. vanilla. Mix all together. Pour in greased 8x8 pan and bake at 350F for 20 minutes."

I found that I had 3 old Salsa jars in the cabinet so I made 3 mixes to put away in the pantry! They didn't quite fill up the jars but I love being able to use up any glass jars I have leftover in my home. They made a great (free!) storage container and you can refill them over and over. Here are some other Uses for Old Jars.

When you mix everything together, is it supposed to be so thick?

No, not necessarily.

I don’t understand how these are meant to work out. Mine was so thick and dry, there wasn’t enough liquid to cover the dry ingredients?? I had to add about another cup of liquid just to stir it and they then turned out very bland….??

if you flavor the sugar with vanilla prior to putting it in the jar, do you still need to use vanilla?

I would say no.

what kind of shelf life does the mix have?

15 Merissa December 9, 2013 at 2:18 pm

It will store well for at least 5 to 6 months. Any longer than that and you will want to stick it in the freezer.

Can I use Self-Rising Flour for this recipe? I love gooey brownies but sometimes I don’t have eggs DX so I’m looking forward to trying this!

Hi Raven, yes you can, just leave out the baking powder :)
