Lactose-Free Valentine's Day Brownies

Lactose-Free Brownie Recipe
 Valentine’s Day is the perfect occasion for brownies, right? Right?!
Lactose-Free Brownie Recipe for Valentine's Day
Okay, so I decorated my apartment with some lovey dovey type things because, duh, it’s February (and apparently it’s a leap year? Anyone else confused about that whole thing?). I also coincidentally started craving brownies -- apparently my body just can’t get enough sugar coursing through it these days.

So after a quick assessment of the cabinets, I determined I had the supplies necessary for lactose-free walnut/chocolate chip ooey-gooey brownies, so I got to work.
Fun fact: Nesquik looks a lot like cocoa powder when you’re dancing around the kitchen singing at the top of your lungs while baking, so.. be careful. Mine ended up with an extra ¼ cup chocolate flavored sugar.

Upon completion, I set my masterpieces up by the kitchen window (my preferred photography spot, in case you were wondering) and that also happened to be where the leftover v-day decorations were hanging out. So that’s the thrilling story of how my normal boring brownies became passionate, love-filled Valentine’s Day brownies.

Aren’t you glad I taught you this valuable lesson on turning your random cravings into timely and relevant blog posts? The recipe adapted from here is below.

Ingredients:
4 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 1/4 cups cocoa powder (not Nesquik..)
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup flour
8 oz Earth Balance vegan butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
Broken up walnut pieces
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (check ingredients to ensure they don't contain milk)

Method:
Preheat oven to 300 degrees and prep brownie pan by coating with butter and dusting with flour.
First beat eggs, then add sugar, then add everything except chocolate chips and walnut pieces. Once the lumps are gone, add half the chocolate chips and transfer to prepared pan. Sprinkle the walnut pieces and remaining chocolate chips on top and bake for 45 minutes. Let cool and surround them with glittery hearts to pass them off as Valentine's Day brownies.
