Baking brownies can be kind of intimidating because it’s one of those “mess up one thing and it’s all over” activities, which is why generally I avoid all forms of baking—I’m the type of person who makes a cake fall.

But, I love desserts and having a brownie every now and then. Sadly, I can’t run to a bakery every time I want them. Whenever I want brownies but don’t want a lot of work, I can make these. Seriously, they are so easy, even I could make them without burning down the kitchen—and they taste pretty great too. Check out the recipe for these simple treats below.

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 325°F and line a pan with parchment paper or grease it.

#Spoontip: Use parchment paper because nothing sticks to it and it has fewer calories than butter.
