Brownies are a staple for dessert at my house! This really is the BEST organic brownie mix recipe I’ve found. It’s fudgey and oh so yummy….Hubs’ is constantly asking me to make brownies and I love that this organic brownie mix recipe is simple to make and have on hand for a last minute treat.
The BEST Organic Brownie Mix Recipe
Lately I have been working on finding better alternatives to many of the processed foods that my family eats. My philosophy has been “baby steps”….baby steps are the key to transitioning my family to a better and healthier lifestyle. I’ve started visiting the farmer’s market several times a week to buy fresh fruits and veggies. Much of my meat now gets purchased through Zaycon Foods because I can get wholesale packs of quality chicken, ground beef, steaks, etc for a fraction of what it costs at the grocery store. The nice thing about buying bulk meat is that I always have it on hand in the freezer for quick meals.
Even though we’re eating healthier we still need some yummy treats in our life! Now, don’t get me wrong….we still do processed foods….I mean, if I tried to get my family to give up Oreos then I would be facing an uprising! But, I can make simple switches in the pantry to cut out some of the highly processed foods that are packed full of fillers. Last week I switched out the packaged ranch dressing mix for my own DIY jar of organic ranch dressing mix and honestly, it tastes soooooo much better!
So this week I’m switching out packaged brownie mix for the best organic brownie mix recipe I have ever tried! Switching to organic spices and baking supplies seemed like a daunting task at first….but by taking those baby steps I feel like we’re headed down the right path. I found this online store called Thrive Market and their prices are amazing! They’re a club…similar to Costco or Sams but online only. And they have all sorts of organic and wholesome products. They offer free shipping on orders of $49 or more and you can get an extra 25% off by using this link.
Anyway, now that I’ve shared how we’re taking baby steps to eat more wholesome let’s get on with these brownies! My family LOVES brownies….I was completely addicted to brownies during both pregnancies with Little Man and Miss Jellybean. Now, we are picky about our brownies….Hubs likes them ooey gooey while I like them to have a little crisp along the outer edge. This brownie recipe doesn’t disappoint!

Usually I triple up these batches so I have extras in the pantry for those last minute hostess gifts. I hate showing up for a dinner party empty handed so I’ll usually bake up a batch a brownies and take the hostess an extra jar to make later. Because every time I take these brownies anywhere…I’m always being asked for the recipe!
