There is nothing like brownies from scratch! Sure box mix brownies are nice but homemade easy brownies just have that wow factor to them!

Easy Brownies

When I first did this recipe for these Easy brownies back in 2013. I was in a cast. I could not drive. So I had to make brownies from scratch as a thank you to a friend who took me to the store. 

Since then, I have made these easy brownies several times. I have improved this brownies recipe with oil. I have actually updated these homemade easy brownies with the addition of sour cream in the brownie. The sour cream makes the brownie recipe a tad moister.

Brownies Recipe With Oil

What makes this recipe so easy is that it’s brownies recipe with oil. Why does that matter? A brownies recipe with oil means no melting of butter. Plus you can make these brownies from scratch healthier by substituting coconut oil!


Homemade Easy Brownies

As I mentioned earlier, these homemade easy brownies actually came to be because I was in a cast and not able to go to the store to buy a boxed brownie recipe. So I had to come up with homemade easy brownies with what I had in my pantry.

With that being said, anyone can make these brownies from scratch. Even the non-bakers can bake up these easy brownies! You will love this brownies recipe with oil!

Brownies are an orgasm in the mouth! I want to play around with a salt caramel version when the cast comes off. In my opinion Watkins has the best butter extract, I can usually find it at walmart
