Small Batch Brownies Recipe

The best ever Small Batch Brownies recipe is here! They are incredibly gooey, chocolatey and perfect for your midnight cravings! 

There are days when you don’t want to make a large batch of products simply because it’s just one or two people eating, and you may end up with a lot of leftovers or when you don’t have enough ingredients to make the entire batch. These small-batch recipes work perfectly in such situations. 

You can easily gather simple staple ingredients available in the kitchen and make something for yourself to calm that sweet craving without the hassle of extra batter or too many baked pieces! 

I usually love making and eating edible cookie dough and no-bake edible brownie batter when it comes to a sudden urge to eat something sweet, and it’s quick too. But when it comes to having something atrociously chocolatey dessert, this small-batch brownie recipe is my go-to recipe. 

Why You’ll Love This Recipe? 

  • Small Portions: Not every time you bake for others. Sometimes, you want to bake for yourself too. But making an entire large batch would mean that either there would be leftover batter or else excess baked portions. Both ways, you feel not wasting the ingredients for just a single piece of sweet craving. In such a dilemma, this recipe for small-batch Brownies works perfectly. It makes 3-5 pieces which are more than enough for you. 
  • Delectable Brownies: Of course, they need to be delicious. Why else would you crave them?! Made with Belgian dark chocolate and topped with crunchy walnuts, these brownies are simply awesome, making them the best fudgy chocolate brownies. 
  • Simple Ingredients and Tools: you don’t need fancy ingredients or tools to make these Brownies. All the ingredients needed are staple ingredients that are readily available in any kitchen. So you can bake them whenever you wish to. 

Important Ingredients Used In The Recipe

  • Dark Chocolate: I love using 46.5% Belgian dark chocolate in my recipes. The brand I use is Van Houten. They are perfectly semi-sweet, making desserts neither too dark nor too sweet. The brownies being fudgy, has a lot of chocolate in melted, chopped chunks and garnish form. 
  • Natural Cocoa Powder: Natural cocoa powder adds some more chocolate flavour to the brownies. If you like a more intense flavour, you can also use Dutch-processed cocoa powder. 
  • Eggs: The Brownies are supposed to be gooey; hence no rising agent is used in the recipe. Therefore, eggs here work not just as an Emulsifier but also as a rising agent giving the aeration and height it needs. 
  • Castor and Brown Sugar: A combination of both castor and brown sugar is going in the Brownies. This maintains a balance of sweetness. 

How To Make Small Batch Brownies 

Preparation: You need ten ingredients to make this recipe, so collect all ten in different bowls before starting with the recipe. Preheat the oven to 180C (OTG mode: upper rod + lower rod + fan). Grease and line a rectangular bread tin using melted butter and butter paper.

Melt Butter and Chocolate: Take unsalted butter and dark chocolate(1) in a bowl and Mt them together using a microwave. You can even melt it using a double-boiler. 

Add Sugar: Once the butter and chocolate have melted completely, give it a stir and add both castor and brown sugar to it. Mix them well using a spatula. 

Add Wet Ingredients: Next step is to add the egg and vanilla essence to the mixture. Give this a good mix as well. 

Add Dry Ingredients: To make the batter, next, add sifted dry ingredients, which are flour, natural cocoa powder and salt. Combine the ingredients to make a smooth, lump-free batter using the cut-and-fold method. 

Fold Chopped Chocolate: Lastly, add the Chopped dark couverture chocolate (2) to the batter and give the batter a final mix.


Garnish: Transfer the batter to the prepared tin and spread evenly. Now garnish the top with some Chopped walnuts and dark chocolate chunks. 

Bake: Put the batter for baking in the oven at 180C (OTG mode: lower rod only) for 25-30 minutes. You will see a flaky top when appropriately baked. 

Chef’s Tips For The Recipe

Tip for Chocolate

If you are out of Belgian chocolate or simply don’t want to use it, then you can go for dark compound chocolate as well. You can even use a mix of milk and dark chocolate chunks. 

Do Not Over Bake

Fudgy brownies can be easily over-baked because the toothpick test doesn’t work for them. The toothpick will come out with sticky batter simply because the brownie is gooey. So bake for the recommended time, and do not bake beyond that for too long. 

Cool The Brownie Before De-moulding

Ensure that you do not remove the brownie from the tin when its hot. Let it cool down and then de-mould. Before slicing also, the brownie must be thoroughly cooled from inside. you can even put it in the refrigerator first and then slice it. This way the brownie won’t have crumbs.

How To Store Small Batch Brownies 

Baked Brownies must be completely cooled before storing them. Cling-wrap and store in an airtight container. If stored at room temperature, you must consume them within 2-3 days. In the refrigerator, they can last for 4-5 days.

“I achieved 10% of my short-term manifestation before my target date”
Before this program I knew a little about manifestations, but as I discovered during the program, I had a lot of limiting beliefs that kept me from fully embracing and accepting myself as a manifestor.
During this program I became more aware of what manifestation is and how powerful I am. I become more aware of my guides, of my highest self and that I can pull the best of my highest self into my present. Since this program I no longer wrestle with trying to convince myself that what I desire will happen. I know that it has happened, it is done and it is mine, here and now. I achieved 10% of my short-term manifestation before my target date, my eyesight has improved and I no longer need glasses for distance vision, only for reading, I gave myself a make-over as part of my commitment to my renewal and I began to de-clutter my space.

“My professional and personal life has seen significant positive changes”
Joining “The Art of Manifesting” was a life-changing decision for me. This is now the third time going through the quest and focusing on different areas of manifestation.
Regan is a powerful guide and she walks the talk.
This 28-day journey was a blend of practical techniques and profound energetical activations. I learned to visualize my goals clearly, expand my possibilities, and overcome the limitations holding me back from living a life i desire. The quest’s unique approach to identity hacking helped me align my inner self with my aspirations, making the manifestation process more effective and authentic.
The biggest takeaway for me was the acceleration of manifestation by bending time and tapping into the highest frequencies. The techniques taught in the quest enabled me to see results much faster than I expected. My professional and personal life has seen significant positive changes, and goals that once seemed unattainable are now within reach.
I’m beyond grateful for the wisdom and tools I’ve gained from this quest and Regan. It’s not just about manifesting; it’s about transforming your entire lifestyle. I highly recommend “The Art of Manifesting” to anyone looking to turn their dreams into reality.

“This course and listening to Regan’s podcasts gave me the tools to acknowledge my blocks and mindsets around drinking”
I have so enjoyed this journey with Regan, I am a new person as a result of this quest. I now have new beliefs & mindsets that I keep working on daily, hourly. A kinder and more compassionate version of me has emerged over this journey, and I love her!
This quest has resulted in me finding the lost me, the me that has been hidden under the voices of doubt, fear or just lack of awareness that I get to run my life not the other voices in my head or family and people around me. When we wire ourselves to the future version of us, then we make different choices and we are already a different person!
Thank you Regan, thank you Mindvalley, thank you tribe!!!! ❤❤, I love you all and wish you a magical Christmas and hope our paths may cross one day at Mindvalley events.

“My family’s net income unexpectedly increased while I was taking the quest”
Before taking this Quest I believed that the prerequisites of success were hard work, long hours, timing and a degree of luck; “1% inspiration and 99% perspiration” was my mantra. Trying to achieve success with this mindset was exhausting, frustrating and unsustainable.


I then discovered The Art of Manifesting … and was blown away.


The foundational teaching of focusing on your inner world to achieve has been transformative in the way I live my life. I now know that cultivating the feeling of already being in possession of that which you want, accelerates the manifestation of what you desire.


My family’s net income unexpectedly increased while I was taking the quest, and have discovered a path to manifest greater abundance in the year to come. But perhaps the biggest shift I experienced during this quest now knowing that I am worthy and deserving of abundance. Regan, I am eternally grateful to you, thank you :-)

“Now, my manifestation is showing up right before my eyes in ways I hadn’t even considered”
Before this program, I believed somewhat in manifestation but never knew how to do it, or if it was real, and the little bit I did know ended up being completely wrong! This Quest has not only taught me how to manifest and put me on the path to doing it the right way, but I was actually able to manifest what I had set at the beginning.
I never thought it would actually come true, but I committed myself to the process and gave it 100% every day. And now, my manifestation is showing up right before my eyes in ways I hadn’t even considered. It’s truly blowing my mind.
I had a financial goal for the end of the Quest, and different opportunities for selling my artwork started coming up, and the deals are coming out almost to the exact number I had set.
Not only that, but I have truly transformed into a better version of myself in these short weeks, more than I had in the last few years, that my spouse has even noticed.
I’m so excited for what’s to come next and so grateful for this program. Thank you.

“I have written a 50,000-word book, that is now in design”
I joined Mindvalley on New Year’s 2023. I am excited to share how life has significantly changed in the first 90 days of the year. Beginning with the Silva Method, I envisioned and transformed a dysfunctional personal relationship, into a loving, caring separation, allowing me the peace and serenity to follow my path, and my partner to choose his. In February while on the Art of Manifesting Quest I listed my intent to have a book written by May 2023, and have a speaking engagement booked by December 2023.
I have written a 50,000-word book, that is now in design, and a journal for Women seeking a deeper connection with themselves, also in design. Both will be uploaded via KDP Amazon self-publishing by May 1st.
I have booked a speaking engagement for May with the intent of having published books with me for sale.
Most importantly – this morning I changed my profile from ‘Document writer’ to ‘Author.’
Gratitude abounds!!!
