Butterfinger Brownies

Chocolate Butterfinger Brownies

Now you are covered for those days when you can’t decide between a brownie and a chocolate bar, and the evil voice inside your head is taunting:

“Have both… You know you want to!”

Halloween Brownies

What’s that?

You say there isn’t an evil voice inside your head telling you to consume all chocolate, in all forms, all of the time?

Healthy Brownies

Oh… ummm… me neither. No, of course not…

*shifts awkwardly*


Just in time for Halloween, this recipe combines two of my favorite foods: brownies and Butterfingers! If you’d prefer, feel free to substitute your favorite chocolate bar or one of my Healthy Halloween Recipes.

Butterfinger Brownies

Print This Recipe [mrp_rating_result show_count="false" show_rich_snippets="false"]


  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tbsp milk of choice (135g)
  • 1 tbsp ground chia or flaxmeal
  • 5 tbsp vegetable or coconut or olive oil (55g)
  • 1/2 tbsp pure vanilla extract (7g)
  • 1/2 cup spelt, all-purpose, or Bob’s gf flour (65g)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cacao or cocoa powder (40g)
  • 1/8 tsp plus 1/16 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar or packed 1/3 cup coconut sugar (60g)
  • 1/4 cup stevia baking blend OR regular sugar
  • only if using Bob’s gf flour, add 1/4 tsp xanthan gum
  • 4 Butterfinger-type bars (such as GoMaxGo brand), OR Homemade Healthy Butterfingers
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips, optional


Preheat oven to 330F. Grease an 8×8 pan and set aside. Cut or crumble butterfinger bars into small pieces, and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the first 4 ingredients (including flax or chia). In a separate bowl, thoroughly combine all remaining ingredients except the butterfingers. Pour wet into dry, stir to combine, then pour in the butterfinger pieces and stir gently just until combined. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake 15 minutes, or until partially set but still undercooked. Let cool, then refrigerate overnight and the texture will firm up nicely! Makes 12-16 brownies (16 the size of the ones in the photos). Store in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Please don’t taste until the second day, as both the taste and texture will change completely overnight.

Question of the Day:

Is there ONE specific food you crave more often than any others?

Peanut butter? Ice cream? Roasted vegetables? Mine is obviously chocolate. I wouldn’t have a very good blog name if it wasn’t!

    Hey Katie,

    This recipe looks lovely and reminded me to tell you of how I shamelessly mushed two of your recipes together the other day, with similar results. I made the pb filling of your homemade reese’s eggs, rolled them into smallish balls, then while they froze whipped up a recipe of your black bean brownies, adding more cocoa and two bananas. Then I mixed the frozen pb balls in and baked. Voila: chocolate banana peanut butter brownies!

    This was not really on the topic of this recipe, but ah well… Thanks for this site- it is a lot of fun!

    Intriguing idea! I’ve never had butterfinger bars but think I’ll try your recipe. I love peanut butter and brownies with peanut butter, so this sounds like a big idea 🙂
    Craving, hm. Nothing particular and not often, usually, but sometimes oatmeal cookies.

  3. Vanessa says

    Butterfingers were my absolute favorite candy bar from the page of 6 until about 13, so I love the idea of making them vegan and stuffing them in a brownie! Nicely done, lady.

  4. EVA says

    I don’t have an evil voice in my head telling me to consume chocolate in every form. Well, I DO have the voice, but I wouldn’t necessarily call it evil!

    I’m ALWAYS craving hummus. I cannot go a day without it or I’ll feel deprived and be quite the crab. I usually crave almond butter as well; I love me my nutty fats.

  5. Ellie H. says

    Oh my goodness these look incredible!!! Where can you buy GoMaxGo bars?
    I eat chocolate every day and it is the food I crave the most. I also love peanut butter!

  6. Heather @ Shards of Lavender says

    I usually crave anything with peanut butter… It can be sweet, like ice cream or cookies, or savory, like Asian peanut sauce. These brownies are definitely something worthy of craving!

  7. Hailey says

    YUM! Love Butterfinger bars. I assume this would work with any type of candy bar? As far as foods I crave, it all depends on the weather, my mood, and what food blogs I’ve been reading that day! 🙂

  8. Natalya says

    So, um, these were amazing. They had a wonderful fudgey texture that just melted in my – and my brother and mom’s – mouth(s), and I wish I could have the entire batch but, unfortunately, that would not give good results. However, I am definitely saving this recipe for future reference and it will probably be made at least once a month. Thank you so much. Yummm.
