Dairy Free Brownies!

Yay I've been baking! It's too early to do Easter Cupcakes, plus I forgot to bring all my cupcake goodies back :( boo. I don't know why, I just had a massive craving for some brownies. I haven't ever been a fan of brownies (don't ask why) but I must of smelt or seen some somewhere and it's been in the back of my mind since. 

I used a recipe I found online for dairy free brownies but I only ever use these as a guide. 

What you'll need: 

125g Dairy Free Margarine ( I used Pure) 
100g Dairy Free Chocolate ( or near enough, 70% green and black works well or Dark Divine)
50g Ground Almonds
80g Cocoa
300g Caster Sugar
4 Medium Eggs
Dash of Vanilla Essence 
& any extras you like. I added some broken Almond pieces and some chocolate chunks :) 


  1. Pre heat the oven to 180/160 fan
  2. Grease and line a square baking tin.. they say 25cm ( I just used an average baking tray) 
  3. In a large glass heat proof bowl, place the chocolate and margarine in and set over a pan of simmering water 
  4. Let it melt and stir until glossy and set aside
  5. In a bowl mix the cocoa, flour, sugar & almonds then pour in the chocolate mixture- very thick
  6. Whisk the eggs in a bowl or cup and add to the bowl, mix until smooth and silky!
  7. Add a dash of vanilla essence and any extras i.e. nuts/raisins/chocolate chips!
  8. Pour into the tin and cook for 25 mins. It should have a crusty top with a soft bottom. 
  9. Allow to cool- it will take a while. Then cut into slices and store :) 

MMMmmm!! So so good :)
