Love brownies? Love your Instant Pot? Love your egg bites mold? Try these EASY from scratch Instant Pot Brownie Bites! You will LOVE the flavor of these steam-baked brownie bites.

I love a good chewy fudgy brownie, don’t you? These aren’t cake brownies these Instant Pot Brownie Bites are fudgy and dense through and through! So if you love that kind of brownie bite you’re in the right spot.

Easy Baked Instant Pot Brownie Bites, make fudgy brownies!

Can I bake in the Instant Pot?

You sure can! Although to be honest it’s more like “steam baking” than actual dry heat baking. And there are quite a few recipes that actually get better when cooked in moist heat.

So when you think of baking in the Instant Pot think of recipes for moist foods like brownies, or our faves Instant Pot Brownies. You can’t get much more fudgy or moist than brownies in the IP!

Do you bake anything in a water bath in the oven, like a cheesecake? They are amazing in the IP. Instant Pot Cheesecake is a minor miracle for anyone whose cheesecakes have ever come out of the oven dry.

Egg Bite Mold for Brownie Bites

These Instant Pot Brownie Bites are made in an “egg bite mold” usually used with eggs to make scrambled egg bites. You fill them up with whatever you’re cooking and stack them in the Instant Pot on the rack. Set the IP and off you go.

A MUST when “baking” in the Instant Pot COVER THE TOP OF YOUR PAN(S). Whether you use the lid for the egg bite molds or foil over the top of your springform pan, you must cover the top.

If you don’t you’re brownies or cheesecakes will “get rained” on when the water turns to steam and drips back down in the pot. This will ruin your recipes.

Where do I get an Egg Bite Mold?

Most places that sell Instant Pots also sell accessories. You can also grab an Egg Bite Mold on Amazon, that link is for a single egg mold bite mild so get two for this recipe. If you don’t have the rack be sure to get a set that ALSO has a rack to use, like this one.
