When my son was first diagnosed with allergies,
I remember trying a few dairy-free and egg-free brownie recipes.
But they turned out to be complete disasters.
Something about mashed bananas???
Then both boys outgrew egg allergies as toddlers…
and I was delighted to make Duncan Hines boxed brownies with egg.
Unfortunately, that convenience was short-lived.
Soon after, my oldest kiddo had an allergic reaction to cashew.
And all nuts had to now be avoided,
including box mixes from plants that have nut or milk in them. Dang.
So it was back to the drawing board to create a good homemade dairy-free brownie recipe that actually works.
No mashed banana allowed.
Now I’m happy to report, we have the perfect recipe!
Dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free brownies.
That taste like real homemade brownies from scratch, yeah baby!
And we’ve been making them since 2013.
These brownies are delicious plain.
Or enjoy them with dairy-free ice cream.
Check labels on cookies or Oreos, first, of course.
