One of my favorite make at home convenient foods is brownie mixes. I always keep them on hand to use for a fast dessert.
Store bought brownie mixes have a distinct texture that my family loves. This homemade brownie mix is very close to the real thing that you buy in a box at the store. In fact, my family loves these more than those boxed mixes.
I have several recipes for homemade brownies that we love, but they are homemade and take a little bit of time to make. Having a homemade mix on hand saves so much time when I need a really quick dessert.
You can make this as you use it, or you can make quite a few batches and place in jars or Ziploc bags. You can also layer this nicely in a jar to give as a gift. I like to make up several batches of mixes and place them in jars. Then, I have them ready to use anytime I need or want a brownie mix. It is healthier and cheaper than a store bought brownie mix.
I also have a gluten free version that we love. If you are gluten free or know someone that is be sure to try out my homemade gluten free brownie mix.
