Bakery Style Whole Wheat Brownies

These brownies are the perfect, healthy snack for your next party. They’re so easy to make and don’t require many ingredients, making them an all-around crowd pleaser!

The “bakery style brownies recipe” is a recipe that uses whole wheat flour and butter. The brownies are baked in the oven for about 20 minutes.

Every time I set out to make a new brownie recipe, I think to myself, “There’s no way this will be better than my last brownie recipe.” And, certainly, there is a way, as we’ve seen time and time again. 

Take these Secret Ingredient Bakery Style Fudge Brownies, for example. They have that gorgeous cracking crust that I like, plus they’re obscenely rich.

They act as though they’re really wealthy. In terms of taste. Duh.


Let’s take a look at what makes these brownies so tasty and rich. It’s a pantry staple that you probably already have on hand.

Flour made from whole wheat.

Using whole wheat flour makes these brownies just wonderful. Because the mild nuttiness adds a richer flavor than typical all-purpose flour, I use it in these brownies.

Let’s get into the details now. Because it’s my favorite, I used Bob’s Red Mill Whole Wheat Flour. And I’m SO EXCITED to tell you that this is the first in a series of blogs we’ll be doing together this year. Bob’s is a terrific business, and I’m thrilled to be working with them in 2018. Keep an eye out for more delicious dishes from us in the future.


These whole wheat brownies are easy to make.

With items you probably already have in your cupboard, you can make a batch of these brownies in about an hour. I know that’s what most bloggers say, but I’m very sure you already have all of the ingredients for these whole wheat brownies in your cupboard.

You’ll need high-quality whole wheat flour (duh), brown sugar, cocoa powder, butter, vanilla extract, eggs, and salt to create these puppies. The brown sugar and butter must first be melted in the microwave until the mixture is glossy. Then add the eggs and whisk everything together until the mixture lightens slightly in color.

Mix in the other ingredients until they are barely mixed. After you’ve added the flour, don’t overmix the dough since you don’t want your brownies to be tough and chewy!

Allow 45 minutes to bake these whole wheat brownies. Insert a knife into the middle to see whether it comes out clean after they’re done. When in doubt, slightly underbaked brownies are preferable than overbaked brownies!



But, for the time being, go ahead and prepare these whole wheat brownies. Then tell everyone you got them from a bakery and see how quickly they believe you because they’re that wonderful.



Bakery Style With A Secret Ingredient You’d think these Fudge Brownies weren’t handmade since they’re so rich and chewy. They are, though, since you are a head baker.

  • 1 and a quarter cup salted butter
  • 2 1/2 cups brown sugar (light)
  • 4 big room-temperature eggs
  • a half-cup of cocoa powder
  • a quarter teaspoon of salt
  • vanilla extract (two tablespoons)
  • 2/3 cup whole wheat flour from Bob’s Red Mill


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Set aside a 9′′x9′′ pan that has been greased and lined with parchment paper.
  2. Combine butter and sugar in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds, then remove from the microwave and whisk to combine. Repeat the procedure two more times. Although sugar particles will remain, the idea is to achieve a glossy surface.
  3. Allow to cool somewhat before adding the eggs one at a time, whisking well after each addition. Whisk until the color of the mixture lightens somewhat.
  4. Combine the cocoa powder, salt, and vanilla essence in a mixing bowl. Mix in the flour until it’s barely blended. Pour the batter into the prepared baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes, checking for doneness after 40 minutes by inserting a knife into the middle of the brownies. Depending on your oven, these might take up to 55 minutes to cook thoroughly!

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you substitute whole wheat flour for all-purpose flour in brownies?

A: Yes, however the resulting brownies may not turn out as flavorful because whole wheat flour is a bit denser than all-purpose flour.

Can I use bread flour instead of all-purpose flour for brownies?

A: I am not an expert in baking, so you will have to find out for yourself.

What makes brownies cakey vs fudgy?

A: Cakey brownies are typically made from cake flour and have a high moisture content which makes them crunchier. Whereas fudgy brownies are traditionally dense, rich, and topped with cocoa powder or other darkly flavoured ingredients like espresso or chocolate chip.
