Easy Brownies: you would be hard-pressed to find a simpler recipe – even one from a brownie mix.

There are several reasons this recipe is so easy. There are just 5 ingredients (okay, 6 if you count the optional chopped nuts.)

Like a mix, this recipe uses just one bowl. You can mix the batter by hand – just grab a wooden spoon. Thanks to the melted butter, there’s no need to measure oil and water, which can lead to a mess. The only measured ingredients are dry.

In less than ten minutes, these brownies will be in the oven.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Baking time: 25-30 minutes
Makes 25 squares
