These double chocolate brownies are deliciously decadent yet they are dairy and egg-free. They are so quick and easy to prepare you’ll wonder why you’ve waited so long to make them! I know I did.
I used aquafaba for my egg replacement, this time using the liquid from black beans. What is aquafaba, you ask? Well, simply put, it is bean juice. Seriously, you know that liquid that you usually pour out when you open a can of beans? It turns out that it makes an excellent egg replacement. How amazing is that? The best part (well, aside from it being virtually free), is how simple it is to use as an egg substitute. One egg = Three tablespoons aquafaba.

Because I wanted a chewier texture for the brownies, I also used two heaping tablespoons of black beans (I drained off excess liquid because I’d already measured in my aquafaba).
I also wanted the brownies to be gooey with melted chocolate, so I used chocolate chips in addition to the cocoa powder. Not all chips are created equal, and many are not vegan, so be sure to check the label. Trader Joes and Enjoy Life brands are both dairy-free. Remember that not all baking powder is gluten-free either, so be sure to read that label too.
