How and Why I Created This Recipe
A special event was about to take place at my nephew's school, every student had to bring something sweet or savory from home and that’s how it all started.
My nephew loves chocolate and I love making him happy, so I thought I'll make him some brownies, some Chewy Gooey Eggless Brownies!
As much as he loves brownies, he asked me to make an eggless dessert. I asked, “how come you didn’t ask for brownies?” He told me about his friend who is allergic to eggs and mostly misses out on the good stuff served at parties. My nephew is just so sweet!
That day I knew how considerate my nephew is and he made me feel proud of him. What he didn't know is that I've never made eggless brownies before, and this will be a challenge.
I really wanted him and his friend to enjoy this dessert and decided to work hard and give my best in making delicious eggless brownies.
This recipe (after a few modifications) worked like a charm. I was so happy to introduce it to my nephew's friend.
The feedback made me humble, everyone loved my Chewy Gooey Eggless Brownies, and not only that, but the most important part was that my nephew's friend didn't feel left out, that was my prize.
I am sharing this recipe here for everyone to enjoy the best and most asked for dessert with family and friends.

Making the world’s best eggless brownies at home is simpler than you think! Here’s how to make them step by step:
Start by preheating your oven to 350F or 180C. Next, line an 8 by 8-inch pan with parchment paper and set it aside.

Time to bake! Pour the brownie batter into the previously prepared pan. Gently tap the baking pan on the table to remove bubbles if they have formed to achieve an even surface.
