Mocha Brownies (eggless, nut-free, and dairy-free)

Categories Recipes

There are a lot of frustrating things to deal with when you have severe food allergies (Epipens, allergist appointments, etc.) but one of the most frustrating things to deal with is going out somewhere, seeing something absolutely delicious, and realizing that you cannot eat it. I wish for a day that I can go out to a local coffee spot, see a delicious pastry, and get to eat it. Until then, I will be making my delicious mocha brownies and sharing the recipe with anyone else missing out!

My amazing mom is actually the person that helped adapt this recipe to make it allergy friendly for my brother and I. A few years ago, Starbucks had a mocha brownie out that looked absolutely amazing, but of course, with their allergy warnings and issues, I cannot eat anything there. So my loving, sweet mother tried to work on a recipe that could allow me to enjoy this unattainable Starbucks mocha brownie.

The brownies can be made with or without chocolate chips (I sprinkle 1/3 cup of chocolate chips on top of the batter before I put the pan in the oven).

My husband has also made these for me and served them with powdered sugar sprinkled on top and blueberries.

Raspberries are delicious with the mocha brownies too!
