Allergy Friendly Double Chocolate Brownies

    1 hour 10 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 with a super moist texture. Increase the chocolate if you prefer a more decadent brownie. But I think they are great just as they are!

    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)
