  1. 1/2 cup of dairy free margarine (or normal marg or buttery if you don't need it DF)
  2. 1 cup of light brown sugar (caster will do if that's all you have)
  3. 2 medium eggs
  4. 1/2 cup of cocoa powder
  5. 1/2 cup of self raising flour (or gluten free flour if needed)
  6. 3/4 teaspoon of salt
  7. 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  1. Pre heat the oven to 175C (347F).
  2. Melt the margarine in the microwave to soften it - I put mine in for 30 seconds at 600 watt. If you don't have a microwave you can skip this step, it's just my lazy way of making it easier to cream the margarine!
  3. Lightly beat the eggs then add those and the sugar to the margarine.
  4. Cream them together until light and fluffy.
  5. Now add in the cocoa powder, flour, salt and vanilla extract and stir to combine.
  6. Pour into a 8 inch square baking pan that you have lined with baking paper.
  7. Bake for 20 minutes.
  8. Leave to cool in the tin for 5 minutes and then flip it out onto a plate, peel away the baking paper and cut into 9 slices (or less if you prefer them bigger).
  9. Now sit down, put your feet up and enjoy that warm, gooey, chocolatey yumminess!
  1. I'm assuming you won't eat the whole 9 slices in one sitting so let the brownies cool completely and then store them in an airtight container and they'll stay fresh for three of four days (maybe longer but ours are always eaten by then!)
  2. I haven't labelled this as a kid friendly chocolate brownie recipe because there is quite a lot of sugar in them, but I confess that my kiddos are allowed a bite or two and they agree that these brownies are scrumptious!

    Those looks sooo yummy Clare! I’m saving this recipe for the next school year. There is always at least one student who can’t have dairy in my son’s class, so I’m always on the hunt for recipes that all the kids can enjoy when it comes time for potluck parties or sharing birthday treats.

    I am a brownie lover it it’s great that these can be dairy and gluten free. I miss my sweet goodies but I’m starting to find more recipes.

      When I had to switch to dairy free I discovered a love for baking because it was easier and more enjoyable to make my own goodies than searching the store shelves for something I could eat and coming away disappointed!

    These look amazing! One of my friends is DF and I always hate that I can’t make her a lot of my favorite desserts! Definitely going to try and make these for her. I think she will love them! Found your blog through the Caffeinated Crafters link party!

      Go for it – a guy I used to work with was gluten free so I bought some GF flour to make these for a team meeting and everyone said they couldn’t even taste the difference!
