Brownies are a timeless treat that appeals to the sweet tooth in all of us. However, for those who follow a dairy-free lifestyle due to lactose intolerance, dietary restrictions, or personal choices, finding a delicious brownie recipe can be challenging. Fear not, as we present a tantalizing dairy-free brownie recipe that not only meets the standards of traditional brownies but surpasses them in flavor and richness. Let’s embark on a culinary journey to create a batch of irresistible dairy-free brownies that will leave your taste buds dancing with joy.


2 cups all-purpose flour

1 ¾ cups granulated sugar

1 cup dairy-free margarine or coconut oil (melted)

1 cup unsweetened applesauce

1 cup dairy-free dark chocolate chips

½ cup cocoa powder (unsweetened)

4 flax eggs (4 tablespoons ground flaxseed mixed with 10 tablespoons water, set aside to gel)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon salt

Optional: Chopped nuts or dairy-free chocolate chunks for added texture


Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a square baking pan with dairy-free cooking spray or margarine.

In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the melted dairy-free margarine or coconut oil with the granulated sugar. Whisk until the mixture becomes smooth and slightly creamy.

Add the unsweetened applesauce, flax eggs, and vanilla extract to the sugar mixture. Mix well to ensure all wet ingredients are thoroughly combined.

In a separate bowl, sift together the all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, stirring continuously to form a smooth batter.

Melt the dairy-free dark chocolate chips using a double boiler or microwave, stirring at 30-second intervals until fully melted. Gently fold the melted chocolate into the brownie batter, ensuring an even distribution.

If desired, fold in chopped nuts or dairy-free chocolate chunks for an extra layer of texture and flavor.

Pour the brownie batter into the prepared baking pan, spreading it evenly with a spatula.

Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs. Be cautious not to overbake, as the goal is to achieve a fudgy texture.

Allow the brownies to cool in the pan for at least 15 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Once cooled, cut the brownies into squares and indulge in the rich, chocolatey goodness of your homemade dairy-free brownies.


Congratulations! You have successfully created a batch of decadent dairy-free brownies that rival their traditional counterparts. This recipe not only caters to those with dairy restrictions but also provides a delightful treat for anyone seeking a sumptuous chocolate experience. Share these indulgent brownies with friends and family, and revel in the satisfaction of creating a delectable dessert that proves dairy-free can be just as delicious. Enjoy every blissful bite!
