Vegan Edible Brownie Batter for One is a naturally sweetened vegan treat that tastes just like brownie batter! Rich in taste and safe to eat, no processed sugar, and ready in just 5 minutes.
Healthy treats that don’t taste healthy. Isn’t that like everyone’s end game?
You and I make this Vegan Cookie Dough for One way more often than we would like to admit. It’s sweet, it’s healthy-ish, and it tastes legit. Bonus points that you get to eat it when you’re pregnant because, seriously, avoiding the raw-egged goodness of cookie dough for nine months is just too much to bear.
I made brownies a couple of weeks ago, and it was so hard not to lick the batter off the spoon. Is one little lick really gonna do anything?
Probably not, but better safe than sorry, right? I knew if I could come up with a cookie dough that would satisfy, there must be a way to do brownie batter as well.
Edible brownie batter vs edible cookie dough
The recipe is very similar to my edible cookie dough recipes. In fact, if you wanted to add just a little less maple syrup it would thicken up to more of a cookie dough consistency. But we’re not after cookie dough today. We’re after drippy, chocolatey, brownie batter.
I’m calling this edible brownie batter for one, but if you’re really trying to be healthy, you should probably share this dessert with a friend or put half of it in the freezer for a fudgy treat tomorrow.
It makes a pretty huge, decadent serving, which I’m definitely not complaining about. Treat yo’self.

Top tips and questions
How to heat treat flour
To make your flour safe to eat, toast the flour on a parchment lined baking sheet in a 350ºF oven for 5 minutes before using. You could also microwave it in a microwave safe bowl in 30 second bursts, stirring each time, until it reaches 165ºF.
Let the flour cool before mixing
It’s important to let your heat treated flour cool before making this edible brownie batter recipe. If you mix it while it is still hot, your batter will be very runny.
The best chocolate chips for edible brownie batter
You can use your favorite chocolate chips in this recipe. Anything will work, including semi-sweet, bittersweet, white chocolate, or even peanut butter chips!
I personally enjoy mini chocolate chips for this because they’re easy to bite and blend well into the batter. If you’re wanting to keep this vegan, Enjoy Life makes a delicious mini chocolate chip.
How to store
This is a single serving recipe, so you likely won’t have leftovers. However, if you want to make it ahead of time or store any extras, keep it in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. You can also freeze it in an air tight container for up to 3 months.
Tips for customizing vegan brownie batter
- Bake it for 9 minutes at 350ºF to make it a Vegan Single Serving Brownie
- Add chopped walnuts for crunch
- Stir in your favorite crispy cereal such as puffed brown rice or corn chex
- Use a gluten-free flour blend to make this gluten-free
- Add a swirl of peanut butter, fudge, or caramel sauce
- Top with sprinkles, crushed oreos, or graham crackers
- Use as an additional top layer on my vegan cookie dough bars
Temperature really affects this edible brownie batter recipe . When I first made it it was warm and runny, just like a brownie batter should be. After a few minutes sitting out in my cold house it started to firm up a bit like you can see in the picture.
My favorite might have been after putting it in the freezer for a few minutes. It turned into a fudge-like consistency that was chewy and irresistible.
If you’re not happy with the texture of your batter, feel free to chill it for a few minutes or microwave it for just a few seconds.
Did you know the flavor of chocolate changes with it’s temperature? That’s science. And I think I like frozen chocolate the best.
Recently there have been concerns about eating raw flour. It is generally considered unsafe to eat raw flour. You can follow the instructions above to heat treat your flour and make it safe to eat.
This recipe doesn’t use raw eggs, which is the other primary concern in eating raw batter. This edible brownie batter is safe to eat.
Make sure you’re using 100% real maple syrup and not sugary pancake syrup. The final batter will not have the right taste or texture without maple syrup.
