Ooey Gooey Dark Chocolate Brownies


Hey guys!  I’m excited to share with you a guest post from Dairy Free Chick a new to me dairy free blog!!  I hope you enjoy this recipe – it sounds fantastic!!  



Hi Dairy Free Betty readers! I’m Tash from Dairy Free Chick, a blog about living lactose intolerant.

Two years ago, I was diagnosed with lactose intolerance and IBS. Ever since then, I’ve been adjusting my diet to my body’s particularities and recently decided to start a blog about what I’ve learned (and cooked) so far. When I’m not in the kitchen, I’m a busy public health grad student and a part-time vaccine researcher.

I’m so grateful to Jessica for giving me the opportunity to share a recipe with you. I debated whether or not to share this brownie recipe with you because I wondered if brownies are too boring. Well, my new friends, that’s kind of a silly question because even if brownies are a dessert staple, they are anything but boring… especially these ooey gooey ones. They are extra gooey because of a brilliant mistake I made when creating this recipe: I added double the amount of chocolate chips I meant to, but can we really call that a mistake? I like to think it was my subconscious talking.

Let’s get to it!

Ooey Gooey Dark Chocolate Brownies


½ cup oil (I used canola)

8 oz semi sweet chocolate chips

2 oz unsweetened baker’s chocolate

2 eggs, beaten

2 tsp vanilla extract

2/3 cup sugar

1/3 cup flour

1 tsp baking powder

½ tsp salt

Optional add-ins: chopped nuts, chocolate chips, coconut, Heath bar or it’s relatives


1. Preheat oven to 350 F

2. Over low heat, add chocolate chips, Baker’s chocolate, and oil and mix until melted. Remove from the heat and let cool.

3. In a large bowl, combine eggs, vanilla, and sugar.

4. When the chocolate is cooled, add to the egg mixture.

5. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix well.

6. Add the dry ingredients to the chocolate mixture.

7. Stir in optional add-ins.

8. Transfer to a greased 8’’x8’’ square or 9’’ round pan and bake for 15-20 minutes (depending on how gooey you want them).

9. Although at this time you will be dying to take a bite, these guys should probably sit for at least 10 minutes to firm up.


  1. Yumm!! Can't wait to try these, Tash. They look delicious :D
    Anyone who thinks brownies are boring is crazy! Especially the gooey ones...all brownies should be gooey! <3

  2. I happen to have all these ingredients on hand today... I see brownies in my future:-)

  3. How is chocolate chips non dairy item?

  4. Mmmmmm, brownies!!!! People are always surprised that chocolate is often dairy free :-)

    1. What kind of chocolate are you buying and where can I get it?? I've always had to buy the dairy free chocolate chips.

  5. great tips! i always thought that chocolate goodies are full of dairy products that can result to painful digestive problems.
