Two ingredient chocolate cake brownies....yep...that's right!

Two ingredient brownies that are dairy and gluten free are having some of you saying...well...yuck. But, believe me, these are not "yucky." They are chocolaty and in general, the perfect treat for someone trying to stay on track and eat a bit cleaner. Yes there is sugar in them, so if that's what you are avoiding, skip these for the time being. Otherwise, here is how to dig in (it took me less than 15 minutes to get them in the oven...get excited!)

What you need:

  • 1 1/4  cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips (dairy-free is the way to go-you can find them in the health food section of your grocery store or just buy the ones at Trader Joe's)
  • 4 large eggs (yolk and white separated)
What you do:

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees
  2. Grease a 8x8 pan with something (I like to do it with coconut oil)
  3. Beat the egg whites on medium high in a mixer until soft peaks form (this is when you take away the whisk and the whites stay up and curl forward and maintain a bit of shape)
  4. While you are beating the eggs, melt 1 cup of chocolate chips in the microwave
  5. Stir in one egg yolk at a time into the melted chocolate
  6. Add about 1/4 of the egg whites into the yolk/chocolate mixture and gently fold in until you have used all of them
  7. Spread mixture in greased pan and top with the remaining 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  8. . Bake for 25 minutes
I also like to add a sprinkle of sea salt to my cake brownies before I bake them, but then that would be 3 if that feels like too much, skip it.

These are great served with berries or just by themselves. Refrigerate leftovers.
