Just when I thought that I couldn’t create another brownie recipe – I mean, have you seen my Peanut Butter Cup Stuffed S’mores Brownies? Or my Oreo Marshmallow Treat Brownies? Or my Samoa Brownies? I bake brownies on an almost weekly basis. I proved myself wrong. And in this case, I’m more than happy to be wrong!
A happy accident inspired my bad habit of leaving CSA box contents on the kitchen counter to insure I use them resulted in these decadent One Bowl Blueberry Brownies.
As I was preparing to bake a pan of brownies last month, I first had to clear the counter of the contents of that week’s CSA box which happened to include a pint of blueberries. Hello inspiration! Why not add blueberries to the brownie batter? I love baking with blueberries but had never thought to include them in brownies… until now.
Do Brownies and Blueberries Go Together?
The result? The most moist and fudgy brownie that has ever crossed my lips. The blueberries don’t so much lend a blueberry taste to the dessert, but rather a level of moisture that’s beyond compare.
A 9″ × 13″ pan lasted a single day in our house as everyone was sneaking bites as they walked through the kitchen. Even my middle child who dislikes all things blueberry thought these were amazing and was doing her best to con me into an additional serving.
Perhaps one of the best things about these One Bowl Blueberry Brownies – besides the delicious brownies, of course! – is the fact that the batter is mixed in a single bowl. (They’re actually a spin off of my classic One Bowl Chocolate Fudge Brownies.) No extra clean-up required! Which of course is a bonus as by the time the brownies come out of the oven, you’re ready to dig in immediately.
Grab a glass of milk. You won’t be requesting brownies without blueberries anytime again soon.
How to Make Blueberry Brownies
 In a large saucepan over low heat, melt butter.
 Add cocoa and coffee to melted butter.
 Stir together to combine.
 Add sugar, eggs and vanilla to saucepan.
 Stir together until well combined.
 Add flour, baking powder and salt.
 Stir together until just combined
TIP: You’ll want to stir only until there are no dry ingredients visible.
 Add blueberries to batter.
 Gently fold blueberries into batter.
TIP: You’ll want to carefully stir the blueberries into the batter so that they do not break.
 Pour batter into greased 9″ x 13″ baking pan and smooth into an even layer.
 Sprinkle chocolate chips over batter in an even layer.
Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until just set and a toothpick inserted into the center removes cleanly.
