Why would it be bad to eat raw brownie mix?



  1. 0 Votes

    Among other ingredients, brownie mixes use eggs.  Though some research claims raw eggs are not a health risk, eggs can be contaminated with Salmonella.  Not all eggs are contaminated, but to be safe it is better to cook the eggs before eating them.  With brownie mix (or any batter with eggs) it is better to bake the iteam first.

    If you want to eat raw brownie mix then you just need to use a recipe that does not require eggs so that you do not have to worry about salmonella.  The link below leads to a recipe that is egg-less.  Another suggestion would be to just prepare the brownie mix as usual, but without the egg.  It will still be moist, it just won’t be harmful.

    Eating raw eggs is really the issue, as you’re risking salmonella poisoning. IF you make a vegan recipe, without eggs that is, like the one I’m attaching below, then you can eat the whole batch raw. Another problem with brownies in general is all the refined sugar! So go ahead and use agave syrup, applesauce, or some other sweetener that is easier on your body and the environment.

    1 cup unsweetened organic applesauce (jar kind is fine)
    1/4 cup vegan sugar
    ¾ cup organic pastry flour (try Arrowhead Mills)
    1/3 cup cocoa powder (try Green & Black’s Organic)
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    ½ teaspoon baking soda
    ½ teaspoon salt
    1/3 cup vegan dark chocolate chips (try Woodstock Farms Organic)
    High heat canola spray oil (try Spectrum’s)


    • Mix applesauce and sugar in a small bowl. Set aside. (Do this first so that the sugar can start to dissolve in the applesauce.)
    • In a medium bowl (4-cup mixing bowl), place flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix well.
    • Add applesauce into dry mix. Mix well. Gently fold in chocolate chips.
    • Preheat oven to 350ºF. Spray an 8×8” square glass baking dish with high heat canola oil.
    • Scrape batter into the baking dish. Bake at 350ºF for 25-27 minutes.
