Fudge Raspberry Mocha Brownies

Fudgy Raspberry Mocha Brownies Recipe

The holidays are in full swing and that means our kitchens are too. Whether you’re in charge of Christmas dinner, giving out edible gifts or heading to a cookie exchange, you’ve no doubt been prepping, cooking, and baking all season long. With these Fudge Raspberry Mocha Brownies, I’ve got you covered – at least for dessert.

With the help of my KitchenAid® Pro Line® Series Stand Mixer, these brownies are a breeze to prepare. Plus, they’re made with a few better-for-you ingredients like Greek yogurt and fresh raspberries, so you can feel a little better about choosing them over Grandma’s sugar cookies. These brownies willl bring a little extra holiday cheer to everyone who enjoys them.

Fudge Raspberry Mocha Brownies Recipe

Preheat your oven to 325° F and spray an 8″ square pan with cooking spray. In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, cocoa powder, instant coffee powder, baking powder, and salt until combined.

In the bowl of your Stand Mixer fitted with the flat beater – my absolute favorite tool for mixing batters for brownies, cakes, cookies and quick breads with ease – stir the maple syrup, Greek yogurt, butter, eggs, and vanilla until just combined. Stir in the flour mixture just until everything is combined – you don’t want to overmix the batter or you’ll end up with too-fluffy, less-fudgy brownies.

Fold half of the fresh raspberries into the batter, then spread and press the thick batter into the prepared baking pan. Top the batter with the remaining raspberries, pressing them down slightly so they stick in the batter. Bake the brownies about 20 to 25 minutes until the edges are firm and the center is just set.

Cool the brownies completely in the pan on a cooling rack before slicing into squares. It’s best to use a sharp serrated knife to cut the cooled brownies. For extra festiveness, dust the brownies with powdered sugar or cocoa powder just before serving.
