One Bowl Brownies [Dairy Free ~ No Mixer]

These one bowl brownies are thick, rich, and delicious. They are a perfectly dense and chocolatey brownie, made with oil and cocoa powder instead of butter and chocolate. But you’d never be able to guess that from the taste.

You know, besides for my brownie in a mug recipe, I haven’t posted any brownie recipes on the blog yet. And that’s a real shame, because brownies are just about the best dessert ever. Dense, chocolatey, fudgy, gooey – all the elements of a top notch dessert.

I used to never bother making homemade brownies, because any recipes I tried never came out as good as the good ol’ Duncan Heinz brownies.

But then, one fateful day…

I tasted these brownies at someone’s house, and I was like, sold. I need this recipe asap because these brownies are perfect.

So I got the recipe from this woman, and I have no idea where she got it from, but I bless whoever came up with this recipe originally. May you never lack for brownies and may the chocolate gods always smile upon you.

Ahem. Anyway.

I’m sure some of you are asking

What makes these brownies so special, anyway?

Um, weren’t you paying attention? Taste amazing, one bowl, what’s not to love?

But there’s even more than that.

These brownies use NO butter and NO baking chocolate. They are made with oil and cocoa powder, which makes them dairy free, and much easier to make. No need to fiddle around with a double boiler, or to try to melt chocolate in the microwave without it burning. Just dump brownie ingredients in one bowl, mix, and done.

But don’t worry. Tasting these brownies, you’d never be able to tell how easy they were to make.

Because they are so easy. Super beginner friendly. Basically foolproof.

And I don’t know if there’s much more to say, to be honest. So let’s get on with it.
