This One Bowl, No Egg Fudgey Brownies is a very special recipe to me because my daughter has some friends who are allergic to eggs. Now I’m not talking “break out in hives” allergic, I’m talking “Mama brings me a red medical bag and epi-pen when they come to play” allergic. So I always enjoy finding special recipes for treats that they can have.
This is my one bowl brownie recipe, but with a distinct difference because of what I substitute for the eggs. If you tasted them, you’d never believe me – canned pumpkin! I know it sounds crazy, but 1/4 cup of canned pumpkin is an excellent stand in for a single egg in recipes, which is just one more reason to keep a can in your pantry. In this recipe, 3/4 cup of pumpkin is an excellent stand in for three eggs and yields a brownie that is dark and rich with the same fudgey texture as before. This is my own recipe, but you can also visit PumpkinCan.com for more recipes that will showcase the versatility of canned pumpkin.
I use this from-scratch one bowl brownie recipe often. It is a dark chocolate brownie, which is what my Katy and her friends love. Today, I’ll be adding in chocolate chips but just last week I made them with peanut butter chips. Of course, you can leave the chips out entirely as well, it’s all up to you! Ooh, pecans would be lovely…
You’ll need: butter, white sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, salt, canned pumpkin, cocoa powder, flour, and chocolate chips.
Place butter in a medium mixing bowl and microwave until melted, being careful not to let it get so hot that it pops. Add in all other ingredients except chocolate chips. Stir until well combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Spread into a greased 8×8 baking dish.
See how fast that was? Bake this at 350 for about 30 minutes.
Allow to cool before cutting (if you want them to hold their shape, if you just want a hot ooey gooey brownie, go for it!) and then serve.
Enjoy your fudgey eggless brownies!
