How to Make Eggless Brownies

By Frank Dioso

Brownies are a favorite dessert for special occasions like holidays or birthdays, or just as a tasty treat. Brownies, like most other pastries, usually have eggs. Some people have egg allergies and cannot eat brownies; others follow a vegetarian or vegan diet. Finding professionally made eggless brownies can be very difficult. Fortunately, you can easily substitute eggs and make egg-free brownies at home without taking a lot of time and effort.

Step 1

Pour an entire package of your favorite brownie mix and ¼ cup of milk in a bowl. Use soy milk if you are lactose intolerant or if you don't want to use dairy. Add ½ cup of mashed bananas or applesauce to the mixture. The mashed fruit will help improve bonding strength and moisture. Stir the mixture until well blended.

Step 2

Pour the mixture into a 9-by-9-inch nonstick glass or metal pan. If your baking pan isn't a non-stick pan, grease it with a small amount of oil, cooking spray or butter to prevent sticking.

Step 3

Preheat your oven to a 350 degrees F and let the brownies bake for 25 to 30 minutes.

Step 4

Insert a wooden toothpick or an uncooked spaghetti noodle into the brownies after 25 minutes to see if they're cooked. The brownies are cooked if the toothpick comes out almost clean.

Step 5

Let the brownies cool for 10 to 15 minutes.
