3-Ingredient Brownies (With Video)
This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.
3-Ingredient Brownies are moist, chewy, chocolaty and oh so fudgy. They come together in just 5 minutes. And the taste is spectacular. They are sweet enough to be a treat and not overly decadent. Definitely my new go-to everyday brownie recipe.
After dropping off my 6-year-old and a batch of these brownies for babysitting, we got full approval from Gigi (my mother-in-law and our family chocoholic). So if Gigi loves them you will too.
I love making brownies, but I like something quick and easy for those extra occasions when I just want to whip something up really quick and head out the door in a few minutes.
How To Make 3 Ingredient Brownies
That is where these totally ahhhhhmazing 3-Ingredient Brownies come in. I literally just dump ingredients in a bowl, mix and pour in the pan. 20 minutes later I have fabulous perfect brownies.
Have you ever tried to cut brownies straight out of the oven? You pretty much end up with a mess of a brownie pan. I used to have the same problem until a friend of mine gave me a tip.
I have to say this tip especially comes in handy when preparing food gifts. At Christmas, I pack up about 30 food gifts and every last one has brownies.
They are moist, chewy, chocolaty and oh so fudgy. They come together so easily and the taste is spectacular. They are sweet enough to be a treat and not overly decadent. Definitely my new go to everyday brownie recipe.
Helpful Tips to make 3-Ingredient Brownies:
- To make these gluten-free, use your favorite gluten-free all-purpose flour.
- Cut the brownies with a disposable plastic knife . The knife cuts through the brownies like butter and does not tear up the edges. Even when they are hot.

Is there something that can be used instead of Nutella? I am allergic to nuts
Hi Brad, I have not tested any nut-free substitutes. I would suggest trying our Lazy Day Brownies. They are my go-to recipe and I know you would love them! http://www.theslowroasteditalian.com/2013/05/lazy-day-brownies.html
Enjoy and let us know how it goes!
Donna, in my book, "YOU ROCK" because you made this recipe So Simple, Thanks, keep up the good work!

Hello Ms.Donna,Thank You for all you do to keep TSRI up and running.It takes alot of your Time away from family, and other things you do. But there is one thing I would like to comment on. Please keep Rude comments people to yourselves. Not fair to Donna to See the Backlash from you with her recipes. Donna keep doing what you do.Always Enjoy what you have for Us. God Bless.
Do you mix it by hand or use a electric mixer?
Is there a healthier or organic substitute to Nutella? There's a lot of fat in that spread.
WOW! This recipe looks yummy ! And, very simple! Perfect!
I only wanted the recipe,not dozens of critical remarks about how many ingredients there are. I also wanted to know how you liked them. Also can you double the recipe in a 9×12 pan? Good grief,doubling the recipe might make me go bankrupt! Just kidding.A recipe is made to just follow,motto change. Then it's not the same recipe. Geez!
This is the easiest and best way to make brownies. I will never buy a boxed mix again. It’s all stuff you probably have in your cabinet so it’s so easy to whip up.
I’m allergic to Nutella is there a substitute??
