Easy Last Minute Master Mix Brownies (Gluten Free)

While I really love Bette Hagman's brownies, sometimes I need a dessert that's even easier to make. You can't beat brownies made from my favorite master mix.

It literally takes less than 2 minutes to mix up these brownies and pop them in the oven.

Brownies come in a variety of categories, but my favorites are "cake-like" brownies and "fudge-like" brownies.

These easy master mix brownies are more "cake-like" in substance. Light and fluffy, but definitely full of chocolately goodness!

These brownies have become a favorite at our house because the recipe is so easy I memorized it! Enjoy!

Gluten Free Master Mix - "Last Minute" Brownies

Dry Ingredients
3/4 cup Gluten Free Master Mix
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
*1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)

Wet Ingredients
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 tablespoons melted butter -or- canola oil
1/4 cup water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8x8 baking dish with butter -or- non-stick cooking spray. In a medium sized bowl whisk together all dry ingredients, set aside. In a large glass measuring cup combine all wet ingredients. Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Pour batter into greased baking dish. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Brownies should be slightly "springy" to the touch when done. Makes 9 large squares.

  1. A master mix for GF brownies??

    omg Omg OMG! I heart you!!

  2. lolol well I heart you too! Thanks for leaving such a nice comment!! That master mix has saved me more than once when company has shown up!! You can make any bisquick casserole dish with it cup for cup!! ;-)


  3. I prefer the dense, fudge-like brownies, but yours sound (and look) excellent!

    I don't know what it is about brownies, but they are *so* easily adaptable to g.f. (and even GFCF) baking. They taste just as fabulous to non-g.f.'ers. Many baked goods are so difficult to replicate as GFCF, but brownies are a winner, every time.

  4. These look yummy! I've been looking for a simple master baking mix:)

  5. They look delicious. I'll have to come back when I have more time to browse.

  6. Well...I can say that I've made these - even though I accidentally added too much oil (which by the way made them more chewy/fudgey,) and they came out WONDERFUL! Love it and this will be THE brownie mix. I can't imagine another coming out better. (BTW - I just had to cook them longer with the added liquid).

  7. hi...which master mix is best to use? i see different variations on your site. brownies r my absolute favorite and since ive been dairy, gluten, and soy free Im having trouble finding a good recipe!

  8. gina - you can use either recipe for the master mix! Whichever one you prefer! I think when I made this recipe I was still using the original master mix!
