Dairy Free Brownies – rich and fudgy brownies that are dairy free and perfect for football season!
Are you a sports fan? I enjoy watching football, if it is the team I care about. Aside from that I don’t need to watch it. College basketball is fun to watch. Baseball has to be in person for me to enjoy it. But for some reason, my husband and son are sports addicts. They want to watch just about everything, or at the very least read about it, so they know the stats and can talk about all of it. Sometimes I just have to leave the room and do my own thing, because they could talk for hours! Anyone in your life like that?
Football season is in full swing! College has been going on for a couple weeks, and the NFL is under way as well. As you can guess, my family is kind of obsessed with football, so it is on more nights a week that I can count in our house. And one thing that always goes with football is snacks!!! Today I am teaming up with Silk to bring you dairy free tailgating food, that is perfect for Monday night football watching. And if you know me at all, you know that I don’t show up to any get together without dessert. So making over fudgy brownies into a dairy free version was immediately what popped into my head.
Fudgy brownies are my ultimate weakness. They are my all time favorite dessert, and I enjoy them in just about any way shape or form. So why not play around with them, and then dress them up for football?! You would NEVER know these dairy free brownies have anything special about them. They taste just like a rich and chocolatey brownies. You can go about removing the dairy a couple ways. You can sub coconut oil for any butter, which definitely gives you fudgy, but also can give you a slight coconut flavor. The other way is to use a butter alternative. It is up to you how you want to go, they both work equally well. Trust me, you will not be disappointed!
