Product Review: Trader Joe’s Brownie Mix (Eggless Version)

Hello friends! As part of my quarantine baking I tried out the Trader Joe’s Brownie Mix and it was GREAT. I LOVE that the mix already had chocolate chips mixed in and the mix overall had a very deep chocolate flavor. Now usually I have a very hard time getting brownie mixes to work with me without eggs but this one is very easy. For this mix I substituted the eggs with 1 5.3 oz container of Chobani Greek Yogurt. Usually I’d say to substitute 1 tablespoon per egg but for this recipe I’d recommend 1.5-2 tablespoons per egg for a bit more moisture and OOMPH. I ended up using the same amount of melted butter the box called for. THESE ARE DELICIOUS. Goo try them! Happy Belated Easter Y’ALL!
