Try this healthier version of the Millet Brownie Recipe|Ragi Brownies, which is made with finger millet flour which is a healthier replacement to all-purpose flour, instead of brown sugar use unrefined sugar or coconut sugar.

If you are comparing this millet brownie with a regular brownie then it is a little healthier version but I would not recommend you to have it regularly as it has sugar, butter, etc. Once a month, is fine, or having a very small portion once or twice a week is also fine but not daily.

This ragi brownie is rich, fudgy, moist, and crinkly on top.

My father bought me around 4 to 5 kg of finger millet flour this flour, you might be thinking why I am telling you this….I have mentioned this in my many posts “My father is a health freak”, he saw a reel that says finger millet flour has a high value of calcium after that he bought me ragi flour.

Recently I have tried several different ragi desserts and snacks like ragi flour waffles, ragi ladoo, ragi cake, ragi namkeen, etc

Give this recipe a try and makesure to share your feedback with me as it motivates me to share more recipes with you guys!

INGREDIENTS IN MILLET BROWNIE

Chocolate– Use the combination of dark and milk chocolate for balanced sweetness.

Butter- Use unsalted butter, It is easily available in grocery stores.

Sugar– Use granulated white sugar also known as “bhura cheeni” in Hindi, It is easily available in any grocery store. I have used unrefined sugar also known as “khand” in Hindi instead of brown sugar, you can use any one of them.

Flour- finger millet flour (ragi flour) and whole wheat flour.

Other– eggs, vanilla essence, salt.

HOW TO MAKE MILLET BROWNIE

Melt unsalted butter, dark chocolate, and milk chocolate using the double boiler method or melt it in a microwave.

Meanwhile let’s make brownie batter, In a large size mixing bowl add granulated white sugar, brown sugar, and salt. Combine it well.

Note: I have used khaand (unrefined sugar) instead of brown sugar as it is a healthy alternative to regular sugar and has a light brown color. If you have khaand then use that instead of brown sugar.

Eggs and sugar

Then add 3 eggs, one at a time, and whisk it well. Repeat the same process for the remaining eggs.

Add vanilla extract, and melted butter & chocolate. Combine it well and then add in finger millet flour (ragi flour), wheat flour, and cocoa powder. Give it a good mix and pour the brownie batter into the cake tin lined with parchment paper.

Note: If you don’t want to use wheat flour then you can substitute it will all-purpose flour.

FAQs

Is millet good for baking?

Finger millet flour and sorghum flour go well in baking, I prefer finger millet more than sorghum flour while baking dessert. Millets are a very healthy replacement for all-purpose flour or wheat flour as it is gluten gluten-free and has lots of nutrients.

I would recommend you incorporate millet in different recipes and make them healthy.
