This edible brownie batter is like a chocolate version of cookie dough! Made with just 4 ingredients, there is NO raw flour and NO raw eggs needed!
I am obsessed with all things brownies and all things cookie dough.
My go-to desserts include edible cookie dough and keto cookie dough (when I’m watching my carbs). For the chocolate fix, I love some good brownie bites, so it was about time I combined forces to make edible brownie batter.
Is it safe to eat brownie batter?
Traditional brownies (and their batter!) are made with raw flour and raw eggs, so they aren’t suitable to eat on their own. However, with a few small tweaks and ingredient changes, you can create a safe-to-eat brownie batter!
