My mom had this recipe for years, and one day I tried them out for myself. They're simple, take little time to make, and taste amazing. I haven't yet met a person who doesn't like these brownies. Note: Top these with cream cheese icing and chill for 20 minutes for extra-goodnes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F
  2. Foil line a 9-inch pan, preferrably glass bakeware because it tends to produce a more moist brownie.
  3. Spray the foil-lined pan with nonstick veggie oil.
  4. Whisk egg whites until slightly frothy, then add oil, vanilla, sugar, and cocoa. Stir together.
  5. Add flour and salt and stir until well blended. Note: You will have a few lumps, which is fine. Don't overwork the batter.
  6. Pour the mixture into the pan and bake for 22-25 minutes or until toothpick or knife inserted into the brownies comes out smooth.
  7. Cool for about 10-15 minutes, remove from pan, discard foil, and serve with or without icing.

Despite the lack of shortening/fat in this recipe I decided to give it a go as I had no butter in the house and some eggwhites to use up. The batter looked 'right', like brownie mix always does when I make other recipes. However, after cooking (for 10 minutes less than the recipe stated. I noticed that the chocolate started to smell burnt so I took them out of the oven) and when the brownies cooled they became as hard as a rock - hard to cut and impossible to chew. I won't be making these again.
