Apart from being delicious these brownies are dairy-free, they can also be made with gluten-free flour and still be as equally delicious!

Followed the recipe exactly and the result is not a brownie- It's a very dry and disgusting chocolate cake. Don't ever try this recipe- it's horrible. I've made things with ready cake/ brownie mixes that taste better than the end result.
