The Best Brownies Made With Fresh Milled Flour

These are the best brownies I have ever eaten, and they are made with Fresh milled flour! I stumbled upon this recipe while I made a mistake making my Blondie recipe. (You can find that recipe HERE.) I accidently dumped my chocolate chips in while my Blondie batter was too hot, and well let’s just say it became a happy accident.

Look how chewy & chocolate-y these Fresh Milled Flour Brownies are! YUM!

These brownies are chewy and delightful, and they start out with the magical technique of browning butter! If you have never browned butter for a recipe, you are in for a real treat! It is easier than you might think, and I have a video to walk you through it each step of the way I will be there! HERE is that video. Get ready for the most heavenly aroma to fill your home, because brown butter smells so wonderful, I can’t even explain it. So, you just have to try it for yourself!

This is a 9×13 tray of Brownies made from fresh milled flour, if you want thicker brownies, you can bake in a 8×8 pan, and it will need baked longer.

Ingredients To Make Fresh Milled Flour Brownies

  • 1&1/2 cup brown sugar 320g
  • 1/2 cup butter 115g (1 stick, use butter and not margarine.)
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (you can use semi-sweet, dark, or milk chocolate depending on what flavor profile you are looking for.)
  • 1&1/2 cup Fresh Milled Flour 180g (I mill about 1 cup of soft white wheat berries)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 3 Large eggs
  • 1/8 cup cocoa powder (mounded 1/8 cup)
fresh milled flour, cocoa powder, and salt in a bowl
Mix up the dry ingredients before adding to the wet ingredients to ensure even mixing, but not overmixed.

Browning The Butter

  1. Firstly, brown the butter- In a large pot (much larger than the butter amount you want to brown), turn it on to Medium to Medium-High heat, and then put in the butter. Stay close, and stir often. It will bubble, then foam. When it foams you will notice it climbing the pan, make sure to keep stirring at this point so it doesn’t burn. Once the butter solids have turned brown, remove from heat.
  2. Add brown sugar & stir until combined. It may look a little greasy at this point, but that is normal.
  3. Add the chocolate chips and stir to melt with the warm butter and sugar. Set this aside while you continue with the dry ingredients.
You can see the stages of adding the chocolate chips, and mixing until the chocolate melts.

Finishing The Batter

  1. Secondly, Mill the flour.
  2. Then, add salt, baking powder, and cocoa powder to the flour, and whisk together to incorporate.
  3. Preheat Oven to 350*F
  4. Grease or line a 9×13 pan. (You can bake in a 8×8 for thicker brownies, bake longer – see directions below.)
  5. Put butter, sugar, chocolate mixture into a stand mixer, and mix. Check the temperature of the mixture and make sure it is under 130*F (so you don’t cook the eggs.)
  6. Add vanilla extract and mix, then add eggs and mix to combine. (Don’t over mix, because it will make it more of a cake mixture if you add too much air into the mixture.)
  7. Then, add the dry ingredients, and mix just until combined. Don’t overmix here either.
  8. If you wanted to add any optional add-ins like more chocolate chips, nuts, or etc now would be the time to add those in.
  9. Pour & spread the brownie batter into your prepared pan.
  10. Bake for 20-30 minutes, until a tooth pick comes out clean. the edges should just be starting to separate from the pan. (Bake for 30-40 minutes for an 8×8 pan.)
  11. Allow to cool, then cut. They will setup more as they cool as well.

How To Store Fresh Milled Flour Brownies

To store the Brownies (If you have any left, lol) wrap them in beeswax cloth, cling film, plastic bag, or any airtight container. Store on the counter at room temperature for 3-5 days. The flavors just get better the next day! For longer term storage, let them cool completely, then slice them, and then put in a freezer safe container or bag. They will last in the freezer for up to 6 months. To eat, just put on the counter for 1-2 hours to thaw. Then, enjoy!

  1. Is it necessary to use soft wheat? I have the country living mill and it says not to use soft wheat in it ☹️

    1. Soft wheat will give you a more tender result. If you have spelt, einkorn, or kamut that would probably work great! I recommend if using another kind of wheat to decrease the amount of flour by 1/4 cup (30g) or so. Hope that helps!

  2. The video says to use 1 cup/2 sticks of butter but your recipe shows just 1/2 cup / 1 stick of butter. Which is correct?

    1. Go with the written recipe! In the video I had filmed it more than once, and in the beginning I doubled the batch, then filmed it again for a single batch. I accidently used the first clip of my doubled batch. Sorry about that! This recipe with 1 stick (1/2 cup) is the accurate one for one batch. Hope that clears it up. Happy Baking!
