This dairy-free chocolate brownies recipe is super easy to make. It’s an ideal recipe for when you don’t have much time to bake but fancy some chocolatey treats. 

It also makes one of the best chewy brownies that doesn’t taste way too sweet or too chocolatey. 

And what’s more, the recipe is perfect for a traybake that it yields more pieces of sweet treats for everybody in the family to enjoy.

Cakey, chewy, or fudgy brownies?

Just like the name says, a cakey brownie has a cake-like texture. It’s a bit spongy because the recipe normally uses some raising agents e.g. baking soda, etc. 

And a chewy brownie is the one with a chewy texture and the recipe doesn’t use any raising agents. BUT, you have to cook the batter at the right timing. If you undercook, the brownie will be soft and gooey that its texture will be more like a fudge. Thus, it’s called a fudgy brownie.

The first time I tried chocolate brownies many years ago, I didn’t realize that they were not “real brownies”. 

In hindsight, they were just simply chocolate cake traybakes 😄.

Mind you, the internet didn’t quite exist at that time. We didn’t have free and fast information flowing at our fingertips to check whether those brownies were authentic. Duh 🙄.

Anyway, now I know that there are so many versions of chocolate brownies. Depending on how you like them, you can either have a cakey brownie, a chewy brownie, or a fudgy brownie.

Chocolate brownies that can be made dairy-free and perfect for traybakes

A simple dairy-free chocolate brownies recipe

There are hundreds of chocolate brownie recipes you can find on the internet, from books, TV, etc. 

Over the years, I’ve tried so many chocolate brownie recipes myself. Some I quite like the taste, but they’re either hassle in the methods, or they use many ingredients that I don’t always have in my pantry. 

Some other recipes can be easier to make, but they taste either too sweet for my liking, or too chocolatey for my kids’ taste buds. 

So, after tweaking and trying, I’ve come up with this super-easy-to-make recipe that makes a crusty on the top and chewy in the inside brownie, with the right level of sweetness.

And just like my other recipes, this dairy-free chocolate brownie recipe doesn’t take much time to make. It literally takes 10 minutes of preparation and 40 minutes of baking. 

Ten minutes is all you need to work on this recipe. And 40 minutes to bake. 

So, if you want to have these brownies for your after-dinner, you can quickly mix the ingredients before you start cooking your dinner. Pour the batter in a tin, and leave it to bake while you get on preparing your main course. By the time you finish cooking, your dessert aka brownies will be ready too.
