Can I mix brownie batter a day ahead of baking?

I have a busy weekend & I’m trying to make the most of available prep time. I have to bake a batch of brownies on Sunday. Nothing unusual in the recipe: butter, eggs, choc chips, unsweetened choc, sugar, flour, baking powder, salt, vanilla, coffee. Standard stuff.
Can I make the batter on Saturday, refrigerate overnight, bring to room temp Sunday & bake?

It won't work because the baking powder will be both activated and deadened by mixing with liquid and not baking the batter.
To save time, mix one day the dried ingredients & wet ones separately (sugar counts as a wet).
Store covered (wets in fridge, dries room temp).
Second day, mix and bake.
