How to Make Pancake Mix Brownies

For this recipe, you’ll need a box of pancake mix. I’ve made these with regular pancake mix. This recipe also works with Kodiak Cakes Pancake Mix. I’ve used the chocolate mix to make it extra rich and chocolatey! I don’t recommend using a buttermilk mix. But any plain pancake mix should work great!

Variations & Additions

I added a thin layer of “frosting” using Peanut Butter & Co’s Dark Chocolatey Dreams spread. This chocolate peanut butter makes a perfect frosting! I melted it in the microwave for 15 seconds to make it easier to spread. You could also top it with traditional frosting or peanut butter.

Feel free to add nuts or shredded coconut if you like a little texture in your brownie. You could even add a swirl of peanut butter right into the batter.
