Have you ever tried biscuit brownies? Wondering what that is? Alright, let me simplify it for you. I am talking about brownies that are made with the leftover or broken biscuit pieces in the box jar.

So all in one, this recipe is for everyone.

The beauty of these eggless biscuit brownies is only 4 ingredients and just 20 minutes of time.

Chocolate Biscuit Brownies

Generally, in the rainy season, we are left with many soggy cookies and biscuits, and similar was the case with me. My biscuit jar was full of broken and leftover whole wheat jaggery biscuits. To make the best use of them, I baked these lovely and delightful biscuit brownies.

I love contrasts and to me “sweet and sour” makes a perfect contrast. To kill the sweetness of biscuits and mask the bitterness of chocolate, I added cranberries. I believe cranberries haven’t got the much-deserved attention it should, but I love to munch them. Remember my cranberry pistachio cookies, I still love them.

Chocolate Biscuit Brownies Recipe

This is going to be one of your best recipes ever. It’s easy, quick, and a show-stopper dessert recipe for all your get together. Make this recipe, when you need that extra attention from your visitors.

So the four ingredients required for our super simple biscuit brownies are:

Isn’t it too simple to remember the ingredient list?

My other popular brownies recipes:

Let’s make the chocolate and milk solution first. To make the milk chocolate solution, pour milk in a saucepan and bring it to boil. Switch off the flame and add chopped chocolate to it. Let it rest for 5 minutes and stir.

Biscuit Brownies Ingredients

In a mixing bowl, mix wet and dry ingredients. Add chopped cranberries and mix it again.

Meanwhile, keep the oven for preheating to 160 °C.

Batter for Biscuit Brownies

Let's Bake

For this recipe, I will be using an 8x8 cake tin. Line the cake tin with parchment paper.

During my workshops, many attendees asked if they could grease the cake tin, instead of using parchment paper. I recommend using good quality parchment paper when it comes to baking brownies. I rely on Oddy parchment paper.

Baking Hack: Using parchment paper helps in easy demolding without creating any mess.

Now pour the batter into the tin. Sprinkle chopped nuts and dry fruits.

Now, bake our special chocolate biscuit brownies.

PS: We use toothpick test for cakes and muffins. A toothpick test helps us understand if the cake or muffin is baked properly. However, this test does not work with gooey brownies, so don’t try and rely on the toothpick test.

Just bake the brownies for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes take the pan out of the oven.

    • Hi Jigna,

      I baked these brownies using leftover cookies. Because cookies already have sweetener so no need to add extra sugar/jaggery while making brownies.
