Not good at all. Very eggy. Not chewy. Poor flavor. Not as sweet as normal brownies.

Thanks for the feedback Hailey. Sorry these didn't work out for you!

How did you get your brownies to be so tall (as in your photo) when there's no leavening agent in this recipe? Also, mine came out tasting eggy!

@Bree, you can made it without eggs and replace with yogurt ๐Ÿ˜‹

Hi Bree- It's the just the camera angle. Not sure why yours didn't work out...perhaps, they weren't mixed well enough?

These were very good. I switched the amounts of flour and cocoa though - putting close to 3/4 cup of cocoa and 1/2 cup of flour instead to make it more chocolatey.
