Egg Free Baking – Chocolate Brownies

It’s no secret that our chocolate brownie mix is a big hit. One of the most common questions we get asked is: “can your brownies be made without using eggs?”

For the past few weeks, we have been in the kitchen testing out ways of recreating our delicious brownies without using eggs. We’ve tried everything – not all of them great, believe us, but we’ve finally cracked it! (Ha… ha…)

There are two versions of the egg free brownie. One uses peanut butter as a replacement for egg and the other is… mashed potato!

Both are just as gooey and delicious as our normal brownies. If you’re a fan of peanut butter, you’ll really enjoy the slight taste of peanut in the brownie, and if you can’t eat nuts or don’t like them, the mashed potato version will be perfect for you.

See below for each recipe.
