Let me tell you, in this millet brownies recipe, we have used chocolate in three ways. One is in chocolate butter solution, the second one is in the form of cocoa powder and the third one is Chocolate chips.
For this recipe, I have used a small portion of wheat flour. This is an eggless recipe and we have used Foxtail millet as a base for this recipe so here Whole wheat flour will help to bind all the ingredients.

Foxtail Millet Brownie Recipe
Melt chocolate and butter in a double boiler. Once it melts, let it come to room temperature.
In another mixing bowl, add fresh yogurt and raw cane sugar. Mix until sugar dissolves. Add melted chocolate and butter solution to it. Whisk it well.
In a small bowl, dissolve instant coffee into hot water and keep it aside.
Meanwhile, before baking millet brownies, keep the oven for preheating at 180 °C and line an 8” x 8” inches square tin with parchment paper.
Now sieve Foxtail millet flour, whole wheat flour, Cocoa powder, and baking powder directly into wet ingredient bowl. Using a spatula, mix all the dry and wet ingredients. Add coffee solution and chocolate chips into the batter. Mix it.
Pour the batter into a lined tin. Using spatula evenly spread the batter. The batter of brownies is generally thick as compared to the cake batter. So do not add milk or any other liquid to make it of pouring consistency.
Bake this brownie batter in a preheated oven at 180 °C for 20 minutes.
After 20 minutes, take the tin out from the oven. If you want your millet brownies to be gooey then do not bake them more than 20 minutes.
The sign of perfectly baked brownies is those will be firm at the corners but soft in the center.
After baking let the foxtail triple chocolate brownies rest for minimum 30 minutes and then slice otherwise your millet brownies will crumble. I love to have these gooey brownies with some hot chocolate sauce drizzled over them.
