Gingerbread Brownies Recipe: You'll Make Them Over & Over Again

Gingerbread is one of my favorite things to make around the holidays – and we love everything gingerbread! From gingerbread cheesecake to gingerbread cookies to gingerbread ice cream to gingerbread muffins, you can't go wrong baking anything gingerbread.

Brownies are another favorite year-round, so when I found a recipe for gingerbread brownies, they were almost mixed up and in the oven before the printer could finish printing out the recipe! I am so glad I discovered this easy gingerbread brownie recipe! This dessert recipe is loaded with that gingerbread taste we've all come to know and love – and they're so easy to make!

To make these moist, irresistible, low-sodium brownies you will need butter, brown sugar, eggs, molasses, vanilla extract, flour, ground ginger, ground cinnamon, baking powder and salt. Mix the dry ingredients together, the wet ingredients together, combine, pour into a baking pan and bake for about 30 minutes.

Serve these aromatic holiday brownies for dessert on Thanksgiving or Christmas, or just because you need some gingerbread in your life. They would be a wonderful addition to your holiday food gifts and cookie trays.

Recipe Notes

  • My brownies were slightly underdone when I cut them. Next time I'll bake them the full 35 minutes. But they were deliciously moist!
  • Because they're so rich, I cut them into 20 small squares.
  • If you want thinner brownies, bake for 25 minutes in a 13x9-inch pan, or until just set. 

Here's how to make it:

  1. Whisk the melted butter and brown sugar together in a mixing bowl until smooth.
  2. Stir in the eggs, molasses and vanilla.
  3. In another mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, ginger, ground cinnamon, baking powder and salt.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients until combined.
  5. Spread the batter into a 9x9-inch square baking pan that's been lined with parchment paper.
  6. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 30 minutes or until set.
  7. Remove and cool completely..
  8. Cut into squares.
