Hungry? You need this Homemade Brownie Mix Recipe in your life. Don't waste your time with store-bought mixes. This is the best!
Saving time and money isn't always about coupons or taking the easy way out. I have been on a D.I.Y. rampage lately. I am really trying to stay away from packaged and processed foods. My kids love to have treats in the house but we are skipping on those store-bought mixes. Instead of giving in, I have just been making more from scratch, like this Homemade Brownie Mix.
How to Make Brownie Mix
This homemade brownie mix has been a lifesaver. It is as simple to make as measuring and combining the ingredients. I just make a few batches to keep on hand in the pantry. You can store it in a jar, or just put the individual mixes in quart-sized zip-top bags.
When our sweet tooth strikes, I whip up a batch quickly. Once the brownies cool, I cut them into individual brownies and put them in a snack bag. Think Little Debbie, but better. These brownies are a delicious treat to pack in the kids' lunchboxes!
Gluten-Free Brownie Mix
I also love this because it can be made gluten-free, which makes it super friendly for everyone in my house. It is also dairy-free if you use vegetable oil or coconut oil instead of butter when you make your batter.
This homemade mix is a huge money saver when you make the gluten-free version. Store-bought Gluten free brownie mix costs $4+ a box.
