Allergy Friendly Double Chocolate Brownies

    50 minutes

    When I tell people that these brownies are gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free and soy free – the response is always “well, what’s in them?” I respond – pigilicious magic! I hit the jackpot with these brownies. They are not too sweet, and really tasty, with a moist texture and spring that is just right. I can’t get enough of them. You could always add more chocolate if you wanted a more decadent brownie. But I think they are great as they are! YUM!

    Very tasty and rich but dense and chewy. I will make them again but I'd like to find a way to lighten the brownies up a bit?  -  25 Mar 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    How is this sugar free? Agave syrup is a highly refined sugar syrup and dates are full of sugar, natural but still sugar.  -  16 Jan 2017  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
