If you like a tasty, chocolatey treats that is ready in minutes, this edible vegan brownie batter is perfect for you. I personally love to spread it on toast but you can also eat it on its own for sure!
This recipe takes less than 2 minutes to make so there is no reason why you shouldn't give it a try. It tastes just like actual brownies in batter form. It's gorgeously rich and sweet. I know you'll love it!
You can also serve this snack with many other things such as, dairy-free ice cream, pancakes and french toast. There are so many delicious possibilities and combinations to experiment with.
Why You Will Love This Brownie Batter
- It's Versatile - I love making this easy brownie batter recipe because you can add it to so many things. Yes, it's great on its own but if you're feeling adventurous, why not add it to something else?!
- Resembles Actual Brownies - If you've ever tried the brownie batters when making recipes like my eggless fudgy brownies and vegan peanut butter brownies you'll know what actual brownie batter tastes like. This simple recipe, not only tastes like a classic, ingredient-packed brownie batter but also, actual brownies too.
- Easy to Make - This is one of my easiest recipes ever. If you have all of the ingredients prepared, it won't take you any longer than two minutes to make. All you need to do is add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir. It doesn't get much more basic than that.
- Allergy Friendly & Plant Based - This vegan brownie batter recipe is entirely vegan, gluten free and dairy free.
- Vegan butter - I love the 'buttery' vibes that this brings to the brownie batter. It enhances the chocolate flavors massively. When melted, the dairy-free butter also works as a binder in this recipe as it helps to bring the ingredients together.
- Oat flour - This kind of flour is completely gluten-free as it is made from pure oats. Therefore, it doesn't need to be heat treated. I also used it in my vegan chocolate baked oatmeal and vegan biscoff baked oats as it gives treats a great consistency.
- Cocoa powder - It wouldn't be brownie batter without cocoa powder. If you can use a high-quality cocoa powder, it will taste even better! Not only will it have a beautiful 'richness' about it but also, a deep chocolatey flavor which ordinary cocoa powder can't match.
- Vegan chocolate chips - These will be mixed into the brownie batter in at the end when all the other ingredients have been combined.

Substitutions & Variations
- You can make this brownie batter healthier by replacing the white granulated sugar with maple syrup like I did in my vegan bounty bars. As a result of this swap, it will lose its slight crunch but the overall flavor will stay almost exactly the same. Although maple syrup contains natural sugars, those sugars are much better for your health than refined sugars.
- This brownie batter has dairy-free chocolate chips folded into it. If you wish, you can change the filling or add more fillings. Instead of regular dark chocolate chips, why not try some vegan milk or white chocolate chips? Other delicious things that you can add include chopped hazelnuts, vegan sprinkles and desiccated coconut.
How To Make Edible Brownie Batter
For the full method, please refer to the recipe card at the bottom of this post.
1: Combine the wet ingredients inside a small bowl.
2: Add the dry ingredients.
3: Stir all of the ingredients together until smooth.
4: Mix in the chocolate chips.
Alter the consistency - If your brownie batter turns out to be crumbly for whatever reason, it is easily fixed. Just add a little drop of melted coconut oil. If it turns out to be too wet for your liking, add a little extra oat flour.
Be precise with the ingredients - As this is a single serve recipe that requires just a few ingredients, you need to measure them out perfectly. Otherwise the consistency will be either too dry or too wet.
Normally, you definitely shouldn't eat brownie batter raw. This is because most use all-purpose flour which needs to be heat treated first. Some non-vegan recipes also use eggs which you certainly cannot eat raw! This recipe uses oat flour and no animal products so you can eat it raw.
Brownie batter is often much thinner in consistency. This is because it contains less dry ingredients than cookie batter.
I advise that you eat this vegan brownie batter the same day that you make it. If you don't eat it straight away, cover it at room temperature for later in the day.
