You will love these egg-free, dairy-free brownies. They are easy to make brownies that also taste great.

We have four great, easy-to-make vegan brownie recipes for you to chose from.

Tropical Source is our choice for vegan chocolate chips. They are made from real chocolate and are 100% dairy free.

If you prefer, you can always substitute carob chips instead.

Although these brownies call for canola oil, use your oil of choice. I often substitute with coconut oil and like the taste and texture it provides.
