Chocolate Malt-O-Meal Brownies

Anyone who have bought a box of Chocolate Malt-O-Meal has seen the Fudgy Chocolate Chip Brownie recipe on the box. I was not impressed on how these brownies turned out when I first made them many years ago. To be fair, at the time I made them without the chocolate chips. This time around I substituted the baking chocolate with 1/3 cup of baking cocoa, because it is what I had on hand. I almost always have baking cocoa on hand, and rarely have the bars of baking chocolate.
This time, I am happy with the results. For some reason my brownies did not turn out all that fudgy the first time I made them years ago, this time I was not disappointed. They turned out as delicious as any other fudge brownie recipe.

This recipe is found on the box, or here at Malt-O-Meal's web site.

Edit July 4, 2020: I updated the links for these brownies.

And what the heck, here the recipe from the site:


  • ½ cup butter or margarine
  • 1 sq. (1-oz.) semi-sweet baking chocolate
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup CHOCOLATE MALT-O-MEAL®, dry
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


Heat oven to 350°F. In a 2-quart saucepan, melt butter and chocolate over medium heat. Add remaining ingredients; mix well. Pour into a 9-inch square pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely; cut into bars. Brownies can be frozen and eaten directly from freezer. Yield: 18 brownies.

    1. I used to make this for my 95 year old home health client until his passing. I left my recipe at his home and now I can't seem to pull it up on the web or anywhere. I have a 95 year old home health couple now that I would like to make these for. If you could possibly post the recipe or even take a picture of the recipe on the box and post it I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you

    2. It took a while to find the updated web site, but I believe this is the recipe:
