Cinnamon Brownie Bites

Ingredients you’ll need

Here’s a list of ingredients you’ll need to make these bites. You can find my recipe card at the bottom of this post for the complete list with their amounts.

For the brownies:

  • Unsalted butter
  • Granulated sugar
  • Cocoa powder: I love and use Dr. Oetker Fine Dark Cocoa Powder.
  • Salt
  • Large eggs: You’ll need 2, straight from the fridge.
  • Vanilla extract
  • Plain/all-purpose flour: You only need 1/2 cup (60g) of flour. Using a small amount of flour is what makes for extra fudgy brownies.
  • Ground cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg
  • Chocolate chips: You can use milk, dark, or semi-sweet.

For the chocolate coating:

  • Chocolate: Milk, dark, or semi-sweet.
  • Vegetable oil: For thinning out the chocolate. You can also use coconut oil.

How to make Cinnamon Brownie Bites

To make these brownie bites, simply place the butter, sugar, cocoa powder, and salt into a large microwave-safe bowl, and heat for 30 seconds.

Stir well, then continue heating in 30 second intervals (stirring after each one) until combined and very warm/hot to the touch.

Fold in the flour and spices until fully combined, then gently fold in the chocolate chips.

Be sure not to let them ALL melt into the warm batter.

Pour the batter into an 8×8-inch square baking pan lined with parchment paper or foil.

Bake for 30 – 35 minutes, or until the centre is no longer jiggly and a toothpick inserted comes out almost clean with a few moist crumbs.

Allow to cool completely in the pan on a wire rack.

TIP: To speed up the cooling time, pop the pan in the freezer for 1 hour. It’ll be completely cool and firm enough to cut into bite-sized squares.

For looks, I dusted my brownie bites with icing/powdered sugar, but you can top them with whatever you fancy!

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.

Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.

Hi, can we make them eggless also? What can we add instead of eggs?

You can use 1/4 cup (63g) unsweetened applesauce for each egg used. Don't worry, you won't taste the apple :)
