These are my absolute favorite brownies! The title is a tad misleading, but I'll explain.

It simply means that it only takes 5 minutes to mix this batter up from scratch and get it in the oven! How simple is that? It’s just as quick and easy as a box mix and I can guarantee you it’s a whole lot tastier and healthier! Now you know I’m no health nut, but have you ever glanced at the ingredients on a box of brownies from the store? Its crazy!!!

This recipe only has 9. BIG difference! I do not buy snacks for my kids, instead I homemake them. It’s so much healthier, but also so much cheaper. Being a family of 8, and I stay at home, we are on a strict food budget. My kids get to enjoy fresh homemade snacks throughout the week. You may be thinking I only have the time because I do stay at home. I can assure you I’m rather busy, young twins are a full time job alone!!

Once you taste these you won't worry about being out of the boxed version every again!
