These Eggless Brownies are a chocolate lover’s dream dessert! So fudge-y and chewy! They are easily made gluten-free, too!

This recipe might be the paleo lemon bars of 2021.

In the sense that I made them almost 20 TIMES because I just had this inkling that they were going to be chewy and perfect and magical…

But they just kept failing!

Until I FINALLY got it right and man, oh man, you guys. It was WORTH IT.

If you thought my vegan brownies stuffed with peanut butter cookie dough were good, wait until you taste these babies!

Ingredients Needed

Baking up a pan of eggless chocolate brownies has never been easier! This recipe calls for a handful of ingredients that you may already have in your fridge and pantry, and if you don’t have any eggs, NO PROBLEM! Here’s what you’ll need:

Unsalted ButterAvocado OilSugarPlain non-fat Greek YogurtVanillaAll Purpose or gluten free 1:1 flourUnsweetened Cocoa PowderCornstarchBaking SodaSaltHot WaterMini Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips 

How to make Eggless Brownies


Turn on the oven so you can preheat it. Line a pan with parchment paper, spraying the sides generously with oil and set aside. 

Double Boil

Fill a pot halfway with water and bring it to a boil. Add the butter, oil and sugar in a heatproof bowl and place it over the water to create a double boiler. Whisk until the butter is melted and a grainy mixture is formed. 


Remove the mixture from heat and add in the vanilla and yogurt, mixing until everything is well combined. Stir in the remaining dry ingredients up to but not including the water and chocolate chips until JUST combined. Stir in the hot water, then the chocolate chips.


Pop the pan into the oven and bake until the top is set and a bit cracked. Remove from the oven and chill for a little bit, then remove it again. 

Cool on the counter until room temperature, then slice and serve up your eggless brownies!

Top Tips for making Eggless Brownie Mix

Don’t Overmix: One of the most important tips I have for making brownies is to not overmix the batter. You will want to stir the mixture until everything is just moistened, as that will allow for the best chewy texture possible!Chill: The secret to the fudgiest, chewiest brownies is to chill them for 10 minutes straight after you take them out of the oven! It helps to speed up the cooling process a bit so that the brownies don’t keep cooking once pulled from the heat.Cool Completely: Resist temptation to slice and serve these brownies while they’re hot. The texture is best when cooled, and they will hold together better if you wait, too.

How to store Brownies

I recommend storing these brownies in the fridge in an airtight container for about a week. You can let them come to room temperature OR enjoy them cold, dense and chewy! To freeze these brownies, I recommend storing them in a freezer safe ziploc bag or airtight container and they will last for up to 3 months!
