How to make Eggless Chocolate Ganache Brownies
Boil the water first. I put a pot of water on the stove to boil while I start measuring the other ingredients. If you have a hot water faucet, or hot water out of your coffee maker, then that is great as you can just use that. Line a 9 x 9-inch baking pan with parchment paper.
In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or you can use a medium bowl with a whisk), add the sugar, canola oil, cocoa, and chocolate chips. Make sure the chocolate chips are on top because when you add the boiling water, you want to add it directly on top of the chocolate so it melts it.
Add the boiling water and mix to combine completely. You want to make sure that this step is done quickly and efficiently, because if it’s not, you can end up with chunks of chocolate that didn’t melt, and we don’t want that!
Once the chocolate is melted and you have a smooth chocolate bater, then add in the chocolate milk, flour, espresso powder, baking powder, and sea salt. Then mix to combine this completely, do not over mix. Transfer the batter to the prepared pan and spread evenly, and bake.
Once the brownies are baked and cooled, then it’s time to make the ganache. Adding chocolate ganache to brownies is really easy with this recipe! I make what I call, a lazy girl’s ganache, and I use the microwave instead of the stovetop. I add the dark chocolate chips, chocolate milk, and butter to a heatproof bowl, and I microwave for 30 second intervals until the chocolate chips are melted. Once they are melted, then I whisk to combine until I have a smooth ganache.
If you prefer to use the stovetop, you can add everything to a double boiler and whisk until melted and combined. Either way will work!
Once the ganache is made, you pour it over the top of the brownies and spread it evenly. Last, the white chocolate is melted and put into a piping bag with a small hole. You could even use a zip bag here if you don’t have a piping bag.
Pipe horizontal lines about 1-inch apart on top of the ganache. Use a butter knife (or chopstick or your finger) and draw vertical lines up and down about 1-inch apart, this will create the pretty zig zag pattern!
Make sure to store these Eggless Chocolate Ganache Brownies in an airtight container in the fridge because of the ganache on top (because it has milk).
Ingredients I used to make this recipe for Eggless Chocolate Ganache Brownies
Why use organic ingredients in this recipe? You all know I’m a huge organic advocate, and I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why you should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good, otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else. Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones, therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. Say it with me, organic means more flavor! And not just more flavor but a more true and pure flavor. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!
So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
