Graham Cracker Brownies
Brownies are really easy to make, and satisfy most chocolate lovers out there. These brownies are a little different...
What Makes These Brownies Different?
First of all, there is no flour used to make them. Instead we use graham cracker crumbs! They add a lot of flavor.
Second, the chocolate is not melted as in some brownie recipes. We leave the chocolate chips whole.
Also, there are no eggs or flour in this brownie recipe. No need for them.
If you want something a little different, these brownies are a great recipe.
Can I Leave Out the Walnuts?
Yes you can. Just know that the walnuts are part of the bulk of these brownies, so you might want to add something else to make up for them.
You could add a different type of nut like pecan, or add some dried fruit. Maybe even some mini marshmallows!
Making Graham Cracker Brownies are easy! Here are the steps:
It helps to make a parchment paper sling that extends beyond the baking dish by a few inches on each side (see photo above).
This allows you to easily lift the brownies from the dish and set them on the cooling rack.
Be Careful Not to Overbake Them
You will want to take these brownies out of the oven when they turn a light golden color on top, and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
For me that is about 30 minutes on average. But check at 25 minutes, in case your oven runs a little hotter.

Graham Cracker Brownies
- 2 cups Graham Cracker Crumbs 17 whole graham crackers
- 1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk
- 1/2 tsp Vanilla
- 1 -12 oz pkg Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
- 1 cup Chopped Walnuts
- Heat oven to 350° F.
- Place a strip of parchment paper in an 8"x8" baking dish, large enough so there is overhang on both ends of the dish (a sling).
- Spray the baking dish/paper with baking spray.
- Break up the graham crackers into a food processor. Pulse several times until they are fine crumbs (you can also use a large plastic zip-close baggie and smash the crackers with a rolling pin).
- Add the crumbs to a mixing bowl.
- Pour in the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla. Mix until fully incorporated.
- Add the chocolate chips and walnuts. Mix to combine. The dough will be very thick and sticky.
- Press the dough evenly into the pan using your fingers.
- Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes, or until the brownies are lightly golden on top and a toothpick comes out clean.
- Let cool for 15 minutes in the baking dish, then use the ends of the parchment paper to lift the brownies out and onto a wire rack to finish cooling.
- Cut into 16 squares.

These are delicious! Don't know how I missed these when they were created, but found them when I Goggled make a dessert with only chocolate, graham crackers condensed milk and nuts. Although I think they should be called Goldies or Blondies due to the color.
I agree about the color, but this is what Nana called them! So glad they worked for you!
I’m thinking of making a couple of batches of these for our senior center lunch but have to mark with nut on top for those that can’t have them . I haven’t made these in years.
Maybe just make chocolate brownies for the rest of them with out nuts.

I used to make this years ago (45 at least) when my kids were small. Haven’t made them in years and started looking for my recipie which has gotten lost over the years. So happy to find this one again.

I have been making these for years. I’m not able to add nuts but my recipe calls for an egg, making it ineatable for my grandson.I’m thrilled to see no egg is required!

I love these! I made them one day when it was raining the entire day and night and I had no eggs or flour! So easy, so delicious! I've made them a few times now. Once I substituted butterscotch chips. Once I added a little coconut flakes. All delish!!
My mother always made this. I use half chocolate chips and half peanut butter chips (no walnuts)--you can also use some butterscotch chips!
