Passover Brownie Bites!!

I really, really, really hate Passover brownies and cookies. I can't seem to find a decent recipe where it actually tastes like a brownie or a cookie. But this following recipe actually comes close to some of the best Passover brownies I have ever tasted, and not just because I made them!

I found this recipe on in their Passover section. This woman named Dara posted it and it actually has been rated by other readers very highly. It got 5 out of 5 I had to try it. I needed something to bring to my friend's house for her Passover Seder that was taking place Sunday night (yes, a day early, but she wanted to make sure people could come since most of us are always with family on the actual start of Passover...for example, my husband and I could never go the past 3 years she invited us!).

I kept the recipe pretty true to form, except I mixed white chips and semi-sweet chips instead of using all semi-sweet chips in the recipe. I also chopped the strawberries into smaller pieces even though the recipe did not say to. The result came out pretty moist (probably due to the strawberries) and decent for a Passover brownie. I recommend it!

They were very easy to make - once I had my ingredients measured out, it took me about 10 minutes to mix them all together and get it into the oven. It did take about 40 minutes of baking in the oven.

Ingredients: (serves 24)

6 eggs
1 cup white sugar
1/3 cup orange juice
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 cup matzo cake meal
1 (10 ounce) package frozen strawberries, thawed
6 ounces of semisweet chocolate chips
6 ounces of white chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Grease 2 6x8-inch baking pans.

Beat the eggs in a bowl with a fork; beat in the sugar, orange juice, cocoa, and cake meal until thoroughly blended.

Gently stir in the strawberries and chocolate chips; divide the batter between the 2 prepared baking pans.

Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted near the center of a pan comes out clean, about 45 minutes.

This is the brownie as a whole cake:
