My daughter, Jazlyn, is anaphylactic to egg, dairy, peanuts, and tree nuts. When she was first diagnosed, I found it very difficult to find recipes and foods that didn't taste like "allergy" food. Over the last 15 years I have had a lot of fun developing and changing recipes so that they are safe for her. I love to share my recipes so that other families can realize how yummy "allergy" foods can taste. You don't have to sacrifice taste or your favorite foods, you just have to rethink how to make them. I made a promise to Jazzy that I would do my very best to find a way for her to eat any food she wants to try. So far I have been able to keep that promise. I hope your family enjoys these recipes as much as we do.

Egg Free, Dairy Free Brownies

These brownies are more cakey than gooey, but they have a good flavor.


1 1/3 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup oil
1 tsp vanilla extract

Combine the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Add the water, oil and vanilla then mix until thoroughly combined. The batter will be thick. Pat the mixture evenly into a sprayed 8x8 baking dish. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
* Use a 9x13 baking dish for a double batch.


  1. These sound really good. Looks similar to wacky cake, which I love. Thanks for sharing :)

  2. The flavor is close to Wacky Cake, but the texture is different. The brownies are very good, as long as you like them cakey and not gooey. My girls couldn't get enough, especially drizzled with some chocolate syrup.

  3. I made these today for our son, who is allergic to milk. They were great! They taste like regular brownies to us. M really enjoyed his first brownies ever. Thanks so much for this recipe!
