Baking in the Instant Pot is one of my favorite time hacks. There’s no pre-heating of the oven, and it’s so easy to set it and then leave the kitchen to do other things.

And, these Instant Pot Brownie Bites are simply delicious! They have the texture of a flourless cake, and are full of rich chocolate flavor.

To bake the brownie bites in the Instant Pot, you’ll need a silicone mold that can also be used to make egg bites. And, if you have an air fryer, you can also use the same mold to make Air Fryer Blueberry Muffins and other treats.

Recipe Steps

Step One

To make these Instant Pot Brownie Bites, you’ll need to start with gluten-free flour and cocoa powder.

To make this recipe gluten-free, you’ll need to use a gluten-free flour mix like Bob’s 1-to-1 Baking Flour. If you’re not gluten-free, you can just use all-purpose baking flour.

Step Two

Next, combine all of your dry ingredients in a mixing bowl, and then stir in the wet ingredients.

See the recipe card at the end of this post for the exact measurements and nutritional information.

Step Three

Spray your silicone pan with nonstick cooking spray and divide your batter between the wells.

Step Four

Set the silicone mold with your brownie batter on top of the trivet inside a 6-quart or 8-quart Instant Pot.

Add two cups of water to the bottom of the pot and lock on the lid. Set the time to 10 minutes at high pressure.

Step Five

Then, when the cooking time is up, let the pressure come down naturally for 10 minutes. Use the quick-release and carefully remove the lid. Try not to let any water splash onto the tops of the brownies.

Let the brownie bites cool in the mold for a few minutes.

FAQs

I am not dairy-free. Can I use milk in this recipe instead of almond milk?

Yes! You can use cow’s milk instead of almond milk in this recipe, if you prefer.

Can I use regular sugar instead of coconut sugar?

Yes, you can. I tend to use coconut sugar because it is slightly lower glycemic, but you can use regular white sugar, too.
