Fudgy Blender Brownies

I have tried many different brownie recipes over the years. But I have to admit, I had never made blender brownies before. It seemed a little odd actually, since I owned one of the best blenders on the market, a Blendtec. I got it quite a few years ago, when I was still living in Las Vegas. I moved back to Wisconsin in 2007, so I’ve had it for more than 7 years and it was still going strong.

I found out back then that this was the same brand of blender that Starbucks and Jamba Juice used, so I was excited to get it considering I had a daily smoothie habit. As it turns out, BlendTec blenders have the ability to make a lot more than just smoothies, which brings me back to the blender brownies.

Several months ago I had the opportunity to get a brand new BlendTec blender to try out, so I jumped at the chance. There’s nothing wrong with my older one, so I passed it down to my daughter who moved out on her own last year.

The new blender came with a cookbook full (not kidding, 200 pages full!) of recipes for everything from smoothies to cocktails, dips to marinades, yeast breads, frozen desserts, batters, and a ton more. I settled on the brownies the moment I saw them.

This powerhouse machine has 25 pre-programmed cycles, but we are going to use just one of those for this recipe. Some other awesome things you can do with this blender are:

  • Crush ice
  • Crack whole grains
  • Grind your own flour
  • Make bread crumbs
  • Chop nuts
  • Make powered sugar
  • Chop cabbage
  • Knead bread dough
  • Make sorbet
  • and a lot more…

Scrape it into a 9×9 pan lined with foil.

Bake in a preheated 350 F oven for 30 minutes. Lift the foil and brownies out of the pan and pull the foil away from the sides. Let them cool before cutting into squares.

These brownies were delicious. Chewy and fudge and super easy to make! Can’t wait to dive into this cookbook more and share more Blendtec recipes with you. If you would like to read about the exact blender I am using, you can get all the info on it here.

    I got a Blendtec last year. It is an awesome blender. I haven’t tried the brownies. Now I must (even if I don’t get to taste them). We have quite the brownie lovers around here.

      Don’t you just love your Blendtec? After many years of going through multiple blenders, finally one that doesn’t break after 9 months! And one that can handle crushing ice without “blinking” :)
