Healthy Small Batch Brownies Recipe

Small batch brownies in a loaf pan are excellent for midweek snacks or smaller gatherings. 


SERVINGS: 8 BROWNIES – 6 tablespoons unsalted butter melted and slightly cooled (85 grams) – ¾ cup granulated sugar (150 grams) – 1 large egg at room temperature – 1 large egg yolk at room temperature – ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract – ⅓ cup natural unsweetened or Dutch process cocoa powder (30 grams) – ⅓ cup all-purpose flour spooned & leveled (42 grams) – ¼ teaspoon instant espresso powder optional – ¼ teaspoon salt


Step 1

Heat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Spray a 9x5 loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray, line it with parchment paper with an overhang for easy removal, and set aside.

Step 2

Whisk melted butter and sugar in a large bowl until thoroughly blended. Add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla essence and mix well.

Step 3

Add cocoa, flour, instant espresso, and salt. Just mix. Spread the batter evenly in the loaf pan.

Step 4

Bake for 18–23 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out largely clean with a few wet crumbs.

Step 5

Cool thoroughly in the pan on a wire rack after removing from the oven. Once cooled, remove brownies from pan, slice into 8 bars, and enjoy!
