Clean Eating Brownies Recipe

If you are looking for a Clean Eating Brownies Recipe that really hits the spot, look no further. We use Hershey's cocoa in this recipe and you'll love it!

Sometimes the hardest thing about eating clean is not being able to use the box desserts that you are used to eating. But as your taste buds change and you begin to taste how processed that stuff actually is.  So the search began for a good brownie recipe. I love brownies. I like fudgy brownies that aren’t quite done, and the less edges the better!! This recipe achieved that for me, if you are craving brownies and can’t stand it anymore, then give in and make these! You will love them!!!

To get this clean eating brownie recipe started, preheat oven at 350 degrees. Place one stick of softened butter, best way to do this is either nuke it the microwave for 30 seconds or just let it hang out for a few minutes; you don’t want it quite to room temp, just soft enough to get your mixer through it, add to a bowl with sugar and cream together with hand mixer. Then add eggs, vanilla and beat until incorporated. Sift flour and cocoa in together along with salt and baking powder and mix until just combined. Mixture will be thick and spread into a 9×9 pan. Cook for 17-20 min or until desired doneness.

I prefer my brownies underdone, fudgier; you can cook them longer if you like yours more cakey. You can also mix them longer and you will get a more cakey consistency. The top of them will be almost like a chocolate sugar crust, but when cut will reveal a delicious fudgy interior that in my opinion is best served hot.

  1. Hi,

    Can I use regular whole wheat flour instead of whole wheat pastry flour?

  2. You can certainly use whole wheat flour in this recipe however as a result the texture of the brownie might not be as soft. To combat this you can use 1/4 cup whole wheat flour and 1/4 cup all purpose flour and your results will be similar to using whole wheat pastry flour. To keep this recipe “clean” you should just avoid using any flours which are enriched. Hope that helps! Let us know how your brownies turn out!

  3. These were amazing! Thanks for the recipe!

  4. Oh my! These are so yummy! I just made them tonight. They hit the spot. The bad part….it took 5 minutes to prep and then 20 minutes to cook. This will be very bad as they are so quick to make. next time I’ll double the batch. Thank you for the recipe. I found this on facebook and I pinned it on pinterest

  5. Can I use a all purpose organic flour(gluten free)….we are trying not to eat wheat?

  6. These are amazing! Recommended to me by a friend. I am newer to baking and this was the first batch of brownies I made from scratch. Turned out so good! My roommate ate them up right away and asked for more so I am on my second batch as I type. I added a little more cocoa powder but as is, great! Thanks!

    Can I use brown sugar instead? Or light brown sugar? Would I substitute a packed 1 c of brown sugar or just a loose cup of brown sugar.

  8. These were SO GOOD and a huge hit at a family party. Any advice on how to get them to stay together a bit better? They kind of crumbled when I cut them but maybe I didn’t wait long enough after taking them out of the oven?
