pMy daughter has been bugging me to make brownies, but we're avoiding egg for my son until he's 2. I don't make anything that we all can't have, so I haven't made any. I tried once, in the past, to make some with FAAN's egg substitute, with lousy results. Are there any brownie recipes that work without eggs?/p

I shall email my brother right now and ask him about the eggs. He is a chef and maybe he can suggest a solution. He knows so many people from New York culnary school that maybe one of them knows. Claire

My son is PA and egg allergic. I bought a cookbook called "Bakin' Without Eggs" by Rosemarie Emro. It is mostly desserts, but has some breads, muffins, rolls, ect.
There is four recipes for egg-free brownies.
I haven't tried the brownie recipes yet, but I will try to post all four.

I tried the heavenly brownies (they were really delicious, although a little sticky) and the applesauce brownies. The applesauce ones were soooo good. You couldn't tell the difference between them and brownies with eggs in them. Even if/when Jake can eat eggs, I'll still make those. Thanks so much!
Does anyone know what brand of caramels are safe? I'd like to try the caramel candy brownies. Thanks!
