Fudgy Coconut Oil Brownie Bites

If you’ve recently bought a bulk jar of coconut oil and have since spent your days staring at it wondering what prompted you to buy it…

If you fight friends and family over the edges of the brownies…

If you think everything tastes better in mini form…

If your soul calls out for recipes that only require one bowl and no power source…

If you love rich, gooey, fudgy chocolate desserts that take 20-minutes or so to make (and that includes baking time)…

Well then (like you didn’t see this coming), this recipe is for you.

So fast, so easy, so mindless, this is the perfect treat to whip up for literally any occasion. 1st time I made these: regular Wednesday afternoon (let’s pretend that 1st time scenario hasn’t happened every Wednesday for the last six weeks). 2nd time I made these: a thirty-one (you know, the bag company?) party at my neighbor’s house. 3rd time I made these: dinner guests coming over.

Fudgy Coconut Oil Brownie Bites

I’ll stop now because you have way better things to do than read about the other gazillion times I’ve made these (like, for instance, you could be making these snappy little treats right.this.second). I’ve also been known to mix up a batch of fluffy, whipped frosting (the whipped cream cheese frosting in this recipe, to be exact), pipe it on the top of each brownie bite with a star tip and plop a fresh raspberry on top. So amazing. I hardly have any words. Hardly.

The most endearing part of these brownie bites is how they are ever so slightly crispy on the outside but the minute you bite into one, it’s all insane rich chocolate goodness in the center.

If you are new to coconut oil or just want to learn more, check out this post I wrote a while back (the comments section is especially helpful with lots of tips, ideas and resources).

Fudgy Coconut Oil Brownie Bites

Yield: Makes 40-48 brownie bites

Fudgy Coconut Oil Brownie Bites

If you have the inclination for only 20-24 brownie bites instead of 40-48 (just don't tell me), this recipe should halve just fine.

Also, several in the comments have said that their little brownie bites are sticking to the pan. I use a nonstick mini muffin pan and haven't had that issue, but if you want to play it safe, grease the tin really well (and if you have it, use that nifty cooking spray + flour; I use Baker's Joy brand and it works wonders for baked goods not sticking) and several have suggested letting them cool before removing from the tin.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup coconut oil (8 ounces)
  • 2 cups semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips (12 ounces)
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar (7 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar (3 1/2 ounces)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup flour (5 ounces)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a mini muffin tin (24-capacity) with cooking spray. (The recipe makes 40-48 so you'll bake two batches unless you've halved the recipe.)
  2. In a large, microwave-safe bowl, heat the coconut oil and chocolate chips for 1-minute increments at 50-75% power, stirring inbetween, until the mixture is melted and combined when stirred together. Don't overheat the mixture, just microwave until the chocolate melts and it comes together - it shouldn't be overly hot.
  3. Stir in the brown sugar and granulated sugar.
  4. Whisk in the eggs and vanilla extract, mixing well.
  5. Stir in the salt and flour until combined.
  6. Fill the mini muffin cups about 3/4 of the way full (you can get pretty near the top and still be ok).
  7. Bake for 12-14 minutes until just barely cooked through. The edges will be bubbling lightly with coconut oil; that's ok. As they cool, they'll set up perfectly.

  1. Oh, man! These look great. I’m rethinking giving up sugar for Lent right about now. There’s still time to change my mind, right?

  2. Jen T says:

    Love, love, love coconut oil. I use it in so many of your amazing recipes! Having the sister missionaries over for dinner tonight and just wondering what to make for dessert, so this is it. Just got my cream cheese out to soften to make the frosting to go on top. Thanks Mel! You Rock!

  3. Teresa R. says:

    We’re snowed in with no way to leave our house. Around here that means two things: board games and baked goods! I planned to make one of your other brownie recipes today, so I was super excited to find this new recipe when I checked your blog. Thank goodness I have all the ingredients!

  4. Shannon H says:

    Mel – You have made me one happy girl! I will have to make these…tonight!

  5. Janet says:

    Can I make this in a pan? I don’t have the mini muffin tins. Thanks ahead for your answer.

    • Mel says:

      I haven’t tried it other than in mini muffin tins but I’m sure the batter could be baked in a pan. The equivalents are about the same as that of a 9X13-inch pan – if you want them super thick, try a 9X9-inch pan.

      • Jami says:

        I just baked them in a 9×9 glass pan (a half recipe – Sorry, Mel!) 😉 and they turned out great. I kept them in for about 26 minutes instead of 12-14. Still fudgey and oh-so-delicious. Thanks for the rockin’ recipe!

  6. What a great use for coconut oil…they look so fudgy and delicious! I just want to top them with a mini scoop of vanilla ice cream!

  7. I’m just a little upset that you waited so long to share ;-). These look delightful. Thanx for another great recipe!

  8. Linda Pilkington says:

    Mel you are awesome!!! I was just wondering what to make for a group of friends that are gluten intolerant and here you are with the perfect solution. I have a question for you. Can I bake these in a 9×13 or 9×9 pan?

  9. MM says:

    Awesome! I have a mini muffin pan that has been collecting dust! Will change that pronto, and make these amazing brownie bites!!!

  10. Anna says:

    I made these this afternoon. They are sooo good. A bonus that they are quick and easy. I can see these being made regularly at our house. Thank you Mel!

  11. MrsSW says:

    Every time I open the pantry I wonder what I was thinking when I bought that very large jar of coconut oil! Now I know – thanks, Mel. 🙂

    Sheila

  12. Char R says:

    Could I substitute a different kind of oil…say, canola oil, and if so, would it be the same amount? I’m hungry for these!

  13. Coconut oil is nowhere to be found in this country, and of course I always thought about all the recipes I could be making if only… I brought back two huge jars from my last trip to the US and they have been sitting in my pantry since september! You’re so right, jaja! I will be making these really, really soon though!

  14. Kelsey says:

    Oh Mel! There is nothing I love more than a good brownie!! Well, except my husband and kids…maybe!

  15. I could say yes to every one of your criteria for liking these! Evidently I need to make them soon! Mmmmm, chocolate.

  16. I’m thinking about mailing these to a friend who is dairy-free right now due to her son’s allergy (she’s breastfeeding). How do they store? Do they stay fudgy for several days…or do they always disappear too fast to know? lol

    • Mel says:

      Hey Veronica – well, admittedly these haven’t lasted long around my house but I think well sealed (in a bag or container) and they could keep for several days quite well. PS: you are very sweet friend.

  17. Anna says:

    I just made these and they are SO wonderful!! Thanks Mel!

  18. Laura from the Land of Aus says:

    Mel, I love your recipes! I have a ‘cookbook’ that I made out of a 3 ring binder & printouts of mostly your recipes & some others that I find on the net. They are so easy that my husband can make them successfully! But I do have an issue with the amount of coconut oil in this recipe.
    Now, I’m not trying to knock the virtues of coconut oil, but the one thing that always gets conveniently overlooked is the fact that it is almost pure saturated fat! Take a look at the nutritional panel & it will say 96-98 grams of sat fat per 100 grams! Saturated fat is not so good for you, especially in large amounts. I know there have been some studies showing that it doesn’t cause heart disease but no definitive scientific conclusion has been reached yet. So i would say that moderation is the key here & keep the saturated fat to a minimum. Use that big jar of coconut oil on your skin & your hair, it’s wonderful for that, and keep the little jar in the kitchen.
    But I still love you & your recipes!! <3

    • Mel says:

      Hey Laura – thanks for your comment. I totally understand where you are coming from. I’ve read a bit on coconut oil even though the research is relatively new and limited (I’m always a bit skeptical when foods are touted as super foods) and although it’s higher in saturated fat, I appreciate that some of the saturated fatty acids are medium chain and are metabolized differently and better than other saturated fats (thanks to my college nutrition classes for helping decipher a bit of that!). Either way, though, I agree that saturated fat should be eaten in moderation and everyone should use their best judgment when using any fat, including coconut oil. And probably avoid eating the whole batch of brownie bites. 🙂 Also, the coconut oil can be subbed out with the same amount of melted butter if the coconut oil is an issue.

    • heather says:

      I love love love coconut oil, use it for teeth brushing, popping corn and as a sub in some baking recipes. Also use Mel’s chocolate topping for her Eskimo bars (choc chips and coconut oil, that’s it!) as an ice cream topping by itself. Quick to make and so much healthier for you than store bought.
      Saturated fat has gotten a bad rep. I personally avoid all vegetable oils, waay too much omega 6, and not natural (how do you get oil from corn anyway??).
      Everything in moderation. Embrace the coconutty goodness!

  19. These brownies have my name written all over them! I’ve never baked with coconut oil before, but now I have to!

  20. Anne says:

    This is such a mean post for a girl trying to stay on a diet. Brownies are my weakness and these look insanely good. Can’t wait to try them!!

  21. Lindsey says:

    In the interest of recipe testing…I just had to make these tonight as a preview before I made them for a take-in-meal. I’m happy/sorry to say they were a hit! I was REALLY trying not to eat so many sweets! You’re a genius!

  22. Ruth says:

    Great recipe – thank you.

    I made these today to take to my book club this evening. They tasted awesome (crisp on the outside, soft and fudgy on the inside).

    But I had a TERRIBLE time getting them out of the tiny muffin tins intact. I didn’t have a problem with them sticking to the pan, but when I would carefully work to get them out, they crumbled…big time. Of the 48 I made, 26 were completely un-servable because they’d totally broken up; the remaining were pretty fragile and none of them were taken out entirely intact.

    What am I doing wrong? I definitely want to make these again, but I need to be able to serve them in a way that looks ok, rather than having them all crumble up.

    Suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Ruth

    • heather says:

      While I have not made this recipe, I use one of Mel’s other brownie recipes and make mini bites (Fudgy Brownies recipe, fits perfectly as 24 mini muffins, baked at 350 for 19 minutes).
      My experience is that the mini muffin brownies have to be completely cooled before trying to remove them, otherwise you get a lot of half bites.

    • Andrea S. says:

      I had the same problem and put them in the fridge to really cool them off and they still crumbled. Then I tried to cook them longer but it still didn’t work.

    • Mel says:

      Hi Ruth, sorry that happened. I’m not entirely sure why since I’ve made them a lot of times without that happening. I think I usually scoop them out slightly warm (I use a spoon to gently lift them out). Were the centers rich and fudgy? Any chance the batter might have been over floured?

  23. Darlene says:

    Hi Mel!! I was so excited to see a pic of these mouth wateringly fudgy brownies and then see the words coconut oil!! So, I clicked on it all excited that I’ve found a scrumptious healthy brownie….but then was disappointed to see the 1 1/2 cups of sugar 🙁 Any suggestions on something else I can use for the sweetener? I have powdered stevia and even liquid stevia but I was hoping for an alternative like dates? What’do ya think? Thanks 🙂

    • Mel says:

      Hey Darlene, I’m sorry if the recipe title was misleading as I wasn’t intending for this to be a healthy or low calorie brownie recipe. It’s decadent for sure. I have no experience using stevia as a sweetener but you could certainly experiment or try reducing the sugar. I know there are other brownie recipes out there that use dates, try a Google search…one of those recipes might be a better fit if you’re after a true healthy brownie. 🙂 Good luck!

  24. Marta says:

    do you think I could replace the brown sugar with coconut palm sugar and it would still work out? Also I don’t have a mini muffin pan, could I just use my cookie ball scoops and put on a cookie sheet. Or are they to gooey they wouldn’t hold shape?

    • Mel says:

      The consistency of the batter is too thin to portion out like cookies but others have reported a regular muffin tin works. I haven’t used the coconut sugar as a sub but you could try experimenting!

    • Wendy says:

      I subbed the brown sugar for the coconut palm sugar today and they were great!

  25. Margi says:

    These look so good and I’m trying them this afternoon as I do have that bottle of coconut oil in my cupboard. My only suggestion to your directions is to list the type of flour used. Any new cook gets confused as to type. I have seven types of flour on my shelf, but then I bake all the time. King Arthur list AP flour at 4.5oz. New to site but am enjoying it immensely.

  26. Dee ide says:

    I have the worst trouble with my brownies getting hard after I cook and slice them and put them in tight containers. What am I doing wrong. Anxious to see how these work.

  27. Julia says:

    I just made these this afternoon, and they are delicious, as everyone has agreed. I used a gluten-free flour substitute, which tasted fine to me. Also, out of curiosity and because I was getting tired of filling mini muffin tins, I tried making these in a regular muffin tin. I added about 7 minutes to the baking time (I’m not exactly sure because I was adding a few minutes at a time past the 14 minutes in the recipe), and they set up just like the mini version. My family will be thrilled because I’ve not been doing much baking since I’ve been off gluten and am also going off dairy (for the sake of nursing a cranky baby). Technically the chocolate still has some dairy, but I’d bet these would be fine with a really dark chocolate since they still are plenty sweet.

    • I’ve discovered Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate chips are dairy-free, so I use those whenever I’m making a dairy free recipe that calls for chocolate. They are so good, too!

    • Kerri says:

      I have some mini chocolate chips from Costco that are dairy free! Also our smaller grocery store had some store-brand ones that are dairy free! Also, the more pricey allergy-friendly ones are Enjoy Life – top 8 allergen free!! 🙂 I too am off dairy for a super pukey/cranky baby while on dairy… plus recently off gluten due to my celiac numbers and baby’s nasty poops! I’m right in the same boat of not baking much!! But brownies made the short list! 🙂

  28. Margi says:

    Made this as soon as I got off the computer. Wonderful taste and they are going fast. I used half coconut oil and half butter with half chocolate chips semi-sweet and half bittersweet 60% cacao. Had a small problem with some sticking but over all out of 48 that was only 6 and I think they were maybe overfilled and was sticking to the rim. This will go in my book of really good brownies.

  29. Kristi says:

    I have all the things except the pan! I need them right now! What a conundrum. These look SO GOOD. Mel, you never disappoint. I still remember the first time I heard about your blog, it was January 2009, a friend brought over “divine breadsticks”. I still make those several times a month. So glad I asked where she got the recipe!

  30. Anna says:

    Hey Mel,

    I’ve been craving something chocolatey for a while now, and this recipe was perfectly timed.
    I made a half batch of the batter, and used a level measure of batter from my smaller cookie scoop to fill the mini muffin tins and wound up with 36. Not complaining, just reporting how things portioned out for me.

    I also used bread flour because that was all I have on hand, and they seem to have worked out fine. Chewy, moist and delicious!

  31. Erin says:

    Made these tonight and they turned out perfectly! My husband was just returning home from a business trip as these were coming out of the oven. He loved them and so did the kids! Great recipe! Loved using the coconut oil!

  32. Emily says:

    I made these last night and they were so good! I overfilled the tins of the first batch, so they were a little underbaked, but oh my, the one I tested was like a gooey lava cake. It was delicious. But I put the rest back in the oven to avoid feeding my family raw batter, as tempting as it was. The rest came out perfectly fudgy! I had trouble getting them out as well, but when I let them cool just a little bit longer, they were easier to get out with just a small dent rather than a chunk missing (using a small spatula).

  33. Candace says:

    These look so yummy! Can’t wait to try. Should we use refined or virgin olive oil?

  34. Heidy A says:

    Mmmm! In the oven right now! Thanks for the easy treat!

  35. Pat says:

    I have a batch in the oven right noww…can’t wait to try them! Such a great idea to use that jar of coconut oil up and the batter is great for working with – I added some chopped pecans as love my brownies with nuts! Have also recently seen some great ideas for waffle irons and one was putting in brownie batter – then top with some ice cream for a yummy easy dessert – this batter looks perfect for trying that also – Thanks Mel!

  36. Kelsey Booth says:

    Do you measure the 1 cup coconut oil when it is solid? Just scoop it in like you do with crisco? Thanks!

    • Pat says:

      Kelsey, the coconut oil I have , although “solid” is the consistency of soft margarine and very easy to scoop into the measuring cup, fill and level off with a knife or spatula, then put in with the chips for melting. Or for the home-ec. ‘purists (as I was taught years ago!) there’s also the “liquid displacement method” for measuring but I find it just as easy to direct measure as above.

    • Mel says:

      Hi Kelsey – yes, I scoop it in as a solid and kind of press it in to the measuring cup (although if I know the weight measure for a recipe, like in this one, I use my scale).

  37. Julie says:

    I love these. Just the perfect consistency! I use your recipes almost daily. If I had a virtual best friend it would be you 🙂

  38. Kathy says:

    I made these tonight and can’t stop eating them!! So yummy! I just love the crispy outside and gooey inside. Do you think that those textures would be the same using butter? I know coconut oil is healthy but I prefer the taste of butter. Thanks!!

    • Mel says:

      Hi Kathy – I don’t think these will have the same crispy outside with butter since that’s kind of a signature coconut oil thing (and the recipe I adapted it from uses butter and doesn’t have the same texture). But it’s always worth an experimental try to see!

  39. Jenny B. says:

    I had the same issue with them falling apart. It seemed to do better when I oiled the pan with Crisco as opposed to cooking spray. Even with crisco, at least a quarter of them fell apart when I took them out, even after letting them cool in the pan. But, they taste so good that I don’t care too much. My husband said these are one of his favorite things I’ve ever made.

  40. Julie says:

    These babies are in the oven right now and smell delicious! Thanks for sharing your great recipes, Mel!

  41. Laura says:

    Didn’t have enough coconut oil so used stick margarine and they were delicious! I have had problems in the past with my mini muffin pan… brownies and cookies sticking and/or falling apart. This time I used the cooking spray specifically for baking (contains flour) and not one brownie stuck! I almost didn’t make these just thinking about trying to get them out of my pan, which is non stick! Miracle in a can

  42. Linda Turco says:

    I just made these this morning (don’t know why I waited so long) to bring to a Munch & Mingle for our singles ward. When I tell you that these brownies are beyond amazingly delicious, it would be an understatement. They were GONE in 30 seconds and not even the guys had come downstairs yet where I served them. Everyone was gushing over them. Thanks Mel for continuing to make me a Super Star!!!! LOVE THESE BROWNIES !!!

  43. Deb says:

    These are to die for! Could not be easier to prepare and the flavor is amazing. I did have problems with them sticking to the pan also. Ended up eating them with a fork out of the pan 🙂

  44. Oh yeah, I would totally serve this with a nice sized scoop of ice cream! They sound amazing!

  45. Shae says:

    These are great! My husband forbade me from making any other brownie ever!

  46. Emily says:

    I thought mine tasted a little salty, but I thought I must not have been careful when measuring my salt. I noticed that in the recipe that you adapted these from, it calls for half as much salt. Could the full teaspoon be a misprint, or would reducing the salt hurt the outcome, do you think?

    • Mel says:

      The reason the original recipe calls for less salt is because it uses a cup of salted butter (which could have as much as 1/2 teaspoon salt, depending on the brand) but you could certainly cut the salt down in this recipe.

  47. I made these over the weekend and they were amazing! My husband said they were the best brownies he’s ever had (and he has an epic sweet tooth). Thanks for another great recipe!

  48. Courtney says:

    They tasted great but like many others, I couldn’t get them out of the mini muffin pan at all :(. They disintegrated on contact. I put the other half of the batter in a 9×9 pan and they’re in the oven now. Fingers crossed for better results!

  49. Jill says:

    hi!
    love your recipes so much…at a family gathering your name is always lovingly brought up! I’m making these muffins and not only are they sticking they have a hole in the middle like they are missing their middle…instead of liking like a cupcake! what am I doing wrong? My husband is still devouring them…but they aren’t pretty?

    • Mel says:

      Hi Jill – to be honest, I’m not sure! I’ve never made them when they’ve developed a hole in the middle like that. Did you whip the batter quite a bit with an electric mixer? I just use a wooden spoon/whisk so I’m not sure if over mixing would make a difference.

      • Mollie says:

        A few of mine did that – it was the ones that were overfilled, and thus under-baked. I think you just need to cook them a bit longer, and they wont collapse in the middle.

  50. Stefanie says:

    These are fantastic! I had the sticking issue as well the first time I made these. After reading the comments, I bought and tried the Pam for baking — amazing difference!! Also, I made them first with coconut oil and second with butter. Definitely prefer the coconut oil, as they turn out with a deeper flavor and more “fudgy”. The butter ones are still good though – this is the best homemade brownie recipe I’ve come across. Thanks!

  51. Melanie says:

    I made a half batch of these tonight. They are delicious! I used coconut sugar because I ran out of brown sugar. I also used white whole wheat flour (weighing it). I added 2 tablespoons of Dutch processed cocoa powder because I thought it would be yummy. Now my house smells amazing. 🙂

  52. Britany says:

    Mel these brownie bites are incredible! Crusty on the outside and nice and gooey on the inside. I took your advice and topped them with some whipped cream cheese frosting and a raspberry and they were soooo delicious! Not to mention super cute 🙂 Oh and that whipped cream cheese frosting…amazing! Love that it’s so light and that you can keep it in the fridge and pipe a little bit out right away without having to let it thaw out first! Thanks for the awesome recipes!

    • Donna Gladstone says:

      Hello again, I dont know how to contact you for questions and my question is not about this recipe. What brand or kind of Molasses do you use.? I bought some and it is horrible. I want a mild kind that I can eat on biscuit or bake with it. Thanks, Donna

  53. Lori says:

    Always wonder when I see “flour”… plain/all-purpose or self-rising? And if anyone knows…Is there a “general rule” when people refer to “flour” in any recipe? (Love your site! All recipes I have tried here have been delicious… thank you for sharing!!)

    • Shelby says:

      I always assume all-purpose flour, unless it’s otherwise indicated in the recipe. Most baked goods use all-purpose flour, I’ve found. Typically the recipe will specify if it is another type of flour besides all-purpose.

    • Mel says:

      When I refer to flour, I’m always talking about all-purpose not self-rising. Usually recipes will specify if it’s whole wheat flour or self-rising or bread flour.

  54. Barbara Ostergaard says:

    I’ve made these 3 times now! Twice with butter because I was out of coconut oil. Tonight we made them with the coconut oil and they are even way better. I also used a tablespoon or so less sugar this time. Yummmm. I think they’re just perfect!!!

  55. Sara says:

    Hi Mel! These brownies were OUTSTANDING!!! I made them for my graduate students who will devour them tomorrow. The only trouble I had was with them sticking to the pan. I read all the comments above about not overflowing, spraying liberally with cooking spray, waiting until totally cool, etc. Going to try another batch in a few days and was wondering if you had any other possibilities to help with the sticking. I would bake them in a regular pan, but they are just so darn cute in these mini sizes! Thank you so much for all that you do!

    • Mel says:

      Hi Sara – I’m not sure, to be honest, since I’ve made them a dozen times and never had them stick (I have a nonstick, dark-coated mini muffin tin so maybe that helps). Could you try lightly dusting the tin with flour or cocoa powder after you grease? That may help!

  56. Dianne says:

    Made these both ways ones w/ coconut oil ones w/o (original oil). Both were good but the coconut def tastes better!! Yummy

  57. Katie says:

    I made these with coconut oil from Costco and Nestles Semi-sweet chocolate chips. The coconut taste overpowered the chocolate flavor. I also had a problem with them sticking to my gold touch non stick pans. I will stick with butter and cocoa powder in my brownies in the future. I think you have to be a big fan of coconut to enjoy these.

  58. Kathy says:

    For anyone who had a problem with sticking or anyone thinking of buying a mini-muffin pan to bake these (TOTALLY worth it!) I have the USA brand of mini-muffin pan (available on Amazon) and they didn’t stick at ALL and I didn’t even grease it first. I have this brand of pan in lots of sizes – made in the USA and uses healthier silicone as the non-stick surface, I never have to grease them at all.

  59. Jocelyn says:

    My family loved the taste of these. Alas, I had the sticking problem so many other people described, despite using a thoroughly sprayed nonstick pan. I actually baked some of the batter in a square pan because I got too frustrated digging the brownie bites out of the pan. I guess I need to get Mel’s magic muffin pan!

  60. Laura says:

    These were SOOOO good! I’ve tried the brownie recipe these were adapted from, and I think these were better! The thing that got me was that they tasted so BUTTERY, rich, and moist but they didn’t even contain butter! Now how did you do that!? (I don’t even care that mine stuck to the pan too.)
    When things stick to the pan here’s my tip: I usually use the flat side of one of those orange peelers (the plastic sticks that have a “hook” on one end and a flat side for removing the orange pith) to work around the bite. They are plastic so they don’t scratch my non-stick pans, and they are much thinner than a plastic knife so they conform to the pan better.

  61. joanne says:

    I made these and they were fabulous!!
    I used Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1
    gluten free baking flour in place of All purpose flour. So my brownies were gluten free.

  62. Amanda says:

    I made these for bingo night, they are the best brownies that I have ever made/eaten! Making them again. Right now…

  63. Jennifer says:

    I’ve made these twice. So fudgy and good! First time I made them, I used regular cooking spray (Pam) to grease my nonstick muffin tins and had a tough time getting them out – they stuck and many fell apart (still delicious though :-)). The second time, I used cooking spray with flour (Pam for baking) and they came out super easy and did not stick at all. Made a huge difference!

  64. liz says:

    well,now things are just getting awkward!everything i make from your blog is sooo good!these were AMAZING-like little molten chocolate cakes:)i made one mini muffin pan full and they be gone girlfriend.gone like the wind!you are my kitchen hero-all hail mel!!!

  65. Sarah says:

    These will be perfect for my future of school lunches! Plus they help satisfy my craving while trying to eat my chocolate in smaller portions, thanks Mel for another great recipe!

  66. kmduff says:

    These are amazing. Better than the two bite brownies at the store that I crave. Sharing them with my kids is hard.
