A warm batch of brownies with red raspberries and ice cream… the perfect dessert after a long day at work!

This Instant Pot brownies recipe is really easy to make. Just add all the ingredients into the pan, put the pan inside the Instant Pot and wait for the magic to happen!

Is it a cake? Is it a fudge? No! It’s Instant Pot fudgy brownies!

Are these box brownies?

No. I don’t like the texture you get from a box mix. I tried to fix the bow mix for this Instant Pot recipe, but then I realized – why to fix when you can make chocolate brownies from scratch?

Why should I make brownies in the Instant Pot?

Yes, you can make the brownies in the oven and in less cooking time, but what if you are in the middle of a renovation? Or your oven is just broken and does not work? If you ever find yourself in similar situations or just want to explore all the options of your Instant pot, I want you to have this recipe and give it a try.

Do I need carrots?

Believe it or not, you do. Of course, it is not mandatory, but the carrots will give some extra moisture and make your brownies super fudgy. If making the brownies without them, you will get classic brownies, and the carrots make them better.

Plus, we all know the health benefits of carrots, so it is always a good idea to incorporate more into your diet. These brownies are a great option for picky kids who like to avoid veggies.

Is this recipe gluten-free?

Yes! the Instant Pot Brownies recipe is gluten free! It’s suitable for all with celiac disease or gluten intolerance. The rice flour is naturally gluten-free, but to stay on the safe side, buy the certified GF rice flour. Also, you can choose between brown or white rice flour. The brown rice flour will give more stickiness, while the white flour is a bit sharper. You can also make a mix of these two.

Is this recipe dairy free?

Yes! This recipe 100% non-dairy, milk-free & lactose-free! Great dessert for lactose intolerance kids.

What can I use instead of maple syrup?

If you do not have maple syrup, you can choose honey, agave syrup, or rice syrup. They will all work, and give the needed stickiness.
