Lunch Lady Brownies | Taking it Back Old School

by Jenn Brockman

Who remembers lunch lady brownies? It had been a LONG time since I’ve had a lunch lady brownie and I’m not even going to lie, I hate way too many, lol. Definitely won’t be craving brownies anytime soon. They are delicious but they are also super sweet.

I remember always complaining about having to eat school lunches, but I never remember complaining when the school served brownies, lol. Looking back school lunches were not really that bad, I think it was more of something to complain about when I was a child. Plus, we had some of the coolest lunch ladies and they worked super hard to make sure all of us had food every single day. When you are a child you don’t realize the amount of work and love that goes into preparing lunch for an entire school.

Sending out a huge thank you to all of the wonderful men and women who prepare lunch for our kids schools. You are amazing, appreciated and your hard work and dedication does not go unnoticed. And, just an FYI I’ve not tasted a lunch lady brownie recipe that’s better than the ones I ate at school.

Before sending you on to the recipe, I wanted to let you know I used a brownie pan for these and they did come out a bit thick. If you want a thinner brownie, either cut this recipe down a bit or use a larger pan. They still came out delicious and I have nothing against a thick brownie, but I did want to let you know.

I hope you enjoy this lunch lady brownies recipe.
