Egg-less Brownies

The other day I tasted some egg-less brownies that a friend made with diet coke. They were very cake-like but with some chewiness. We had a Sprite on hand so we decided to try it out. All you need is 2 ingredients: a can of soda and a brownie mix.
Mix them up and bake according to the package directions. We used half a can and put ours in a 9x13, so they were a little more dense but still chewy. Some people might not like the texture, but I think it's a good alternative for people that have to avoid egg. If you want it more fluffy, use the entire can.

  1. Ok the challenge is on. Diet Coke? Diet Dr Pepper? We could try all of these combinations! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I've made these before and they are great! I use diet coke so that I'm not adding more sugar to the recipe.

  10. The bubbles do the trick, from what I understand. Vinegar is another option in place of egg. I had to do this for a special friend once who wasn't allowed egg. It's always good to know.

    Thanks for visiting and commenting on Amanda's Books and More. I'm already following you via Twitter and FB (Tina Morley).

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  11. My neighbor does this with cake mix, I guess if you use diet coke and a chocolate cake it is on weight watchers!! I haven't tried brownies yet, if there is chocolate in it I love it. Thanks for linking up!
