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 8×8 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.
