These dairy free stout brownies are so fudgy, moist and delicious! The beer really adds this depth of flavor that is so special. I made these a few weeks back and between my boyfriend and I, the entire pan was gone in three days. We don’t even really eat sweets like that! If I was going to a Fourth of July party, this is definitely what I would be bringing!
Don’t even get me started on flaky sea salt plus chocolate. I couldn’t name a better duo if I tried. I also really love these because instead of chips we use chopped chocolate, which adds a really nice textural element. These are a must make!

A crowd pleaser

Dairy Free Stout Brownies
These dairy free stout brownies are the absolute perfect thing to bring to a cookout! They are so moist, nobody will guess that they are dairy free.
- 15oz Guinness stout beer
- 6oz bittersweet chocolate, chopped and divided
- 3/4 cup vegan butter
- 3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3 eggs
- 1 Tbsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp flaked sea salt
- 1 1/4 c all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- Step 1 Preheat oven to 350F
- Step 2 First, pour the beer into a pan and cook until its reduced by about half. This happens very quickly, so keep an eye on it.
- Step 3 Meanwhile, melt 4 oz of the chocolate with the butter in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until melted.
- Step 4 Stir in the reduced beer, sugars, eggs, vanilla and sea salt. Mix until very well combined. Add the flour, baking soda and cocoa powder, gently stir until just barely combined.
- Step 5 Pour batter into an 8×8 baking dish, lined with parchment and lightly sprayed with pam. Top with remaining 2oz chopped chocolate and a little sea salt.
- Step 6 Bake for 30-35 minutes, then let cool completely before slicing. Serve with almond milk, if desired.
- Step 7 Chefs tip: If you over reduce the beer, add water until it reaches 1/2 cup. It happens to the best of us!
- Step 8 Chefs tip 2: Most bittersweet chocolates that are in bar form are naturally dairy free! Check the back of the package to make sure there are no milk solids. Cocoa butter is not dairy 🙂
