Do you LOVE Chocolate?

Three dark, fudgy brownies in a white bowl

Me too! This means I’m always on the lookout for good chocolate recipes, especially brownies!

Lately I’ve been looking for brownie recipes without eggs (because I’m sensitive to eggs). I tried MANY egg-free brownie recipes and ultimately ended up creating this one myself through trial and error and it is now good enough to share with you!…
