Made From Scratch Brownies

These little yummy chocolately brownies come from my attempts at trying to make an eggless brownie. They are also dairy free! You would never know though, they are soft, chewy, and oh-so-chocolately. My only warning is to not eat the whole plate in one sitting.:)

Ooey Gooey Brownies

What you need:

  • 1 1/3 c. flour
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1/3 c. unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/2 t. baking powder
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1/2 c. water
  • 1/2 c. oil (I used mild olive oil)
  • 1/2 t. vanilla

Pin this recipe for later.

Mix together all the ingredients. Dry ingredients first and then

 wet.

You should have a nice thick mixture. Make sure all the flour and baking powder is mixed in otherwise you will have sour clumps in the brownies and that's not fun.

Pat into a slightly greased 8x8 pan. Bake at 350F for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Even if you don't need to be on an egg free or dairy free diet these are super yummy and so easy to whip up! You might want to make a double batch in a 9x13 pan because they won't last long!

Want to make these brownies into an easy mix that you can keep in your pantry? Here's the Made From Scratch Brownies Mix Edition of this recipe!

Hey Merissa, Is it Baking Powder or Baking Soda?
The recipe states powder and under the picture states soda. Just wondering?
Thanks & Blessings to you!

Thanks for catching that, it’s baking powder! I’ll go change that in the post now:)

Yum. We’re doing a low grain, no dairy diet, so this is almost there! Thanks.

It was amazing! No eggs or milk and yet it turned out to be the best brownie I’ve ever tired.

Yummmmmmmm! I have a son with an egg allergy so was starting to test out some eggless brownie recipes to satisfy him and the other 3 boys in the house. We love this! It has been requested almost weekly around here since I found it a couple months ago. Thanks for a great recipe! Oh…by the way…they are in the oven right now..again… And we are planning on having it with homemade fudge sauce and ice cream tonight.

Thanks for sharing this! (and the other egg free recipes!) I developed severe food allergies in adulthood and it stinks! So I am so glad to find some yummy recipes! Made it up tonight (waiting on them to cool) and the batter was definitely yummy! Looking forward to the actual brownies!

These brownies are really good. I’ve been looking for a egg and dairy free brownie for a while and these have been a huge hit! I chop up some dark chocolate and put it in the mix…and I added a splash of soy milk because the mix seemed a little dry to me (I’m not sure if I have a mix up with cup sizes, I’m british and I think ours are a different size) and they turned out wonderful. Absolute hit with the whole family! Thank you for the recipe :)

Are the baking powder, salt and vanilla measured with tablespoons or teaspoons?

Reply

17 Merissa November 28, 2013 at 1:32 pm

T = Tablespoon and t = teaspoon

Thanks so much for this recipe! It was delicious and definitely a treat I needed at 12:30AM and absolutely NO eggs in the fridge! :-)

These are amazing! This is my go to brownie recipe, I add 2-4 tsp of plain yogurt most of the time, depending on how dense of a brownie k want and if I want them to rise a bit more I add 1/2 tsp more of baking powder. Thanks for this great flexible recipe :)

I love the yogurt addition idea!

I was wondering if i could make this recipe without vanilla. I do not have any

22 Merissa March 22, 2014 at 10:47 am

Yes you can.

I just put a batch of these in the oven and I can’t wait to taste. I needed a vegan version so here are my alterations: I used almond meal and flax meal 1c almond 1/3c flax), I used coconut oil and I melted 1/4c semi sweet vegan chocolate chips into it. The batter tastes divine!!

I also used organic raw cane sugar. Your recipe was dairy free which I needed due to allergies so thank you!

I just wanted to thank you again for the fabulous dairy free brownie recipe. My WHOLE family (I mean extended and all) and close friends all love these. I use coconut oil in them so it solidifies once they cool…so yum. I call them 20 below brownies because I actually freeze them and serve cold with a cup of espresso!

I’m so glad your family enjoys them! :)

These brownies were amazing! I have been looking for one that doesn’t turn out so cakey…so far, this is the one!!! I also added raspberry jam to the top and swirled it into the batter…oh they were good. I also used the Speical Dark cocoa. I ate a whole row while they were still semi-warm. It was hard to hold myself back from eating even more.

Do you think they would still turn out if one used less oil? That’s my only con about them. Either way, I will be making them again!

I’m so glad you liked them! I’m not sure I would add less oil but you could always sub all or part of the oil for applesauce. :)
