Easy Condensed Milk Brownies - Eggless Recipe
So if you're wondering "can I substitute sweetened condensed milk for eggs in brownies?" let me assure you that you can! If you love fudgy, chocolatey goodness without eggs, you've got to make this easy condensed milk brownie recipe! Eggless and made with gooey chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and rich cocoa powder, they are just what you need for your chocolate craving! I'm telling you, these are the fudgiest brownies I've ever made. I wouldn't even notice that they're made without eggs!
Can you use condensed milk in baking?
Absolutely! Sweetened condensed milk is essentially sweetened milk that has been cooked down to so that some of the liquid evaporates and it takes on a slight caramelized flavor. It adds a richness and sweetness that is so unique, and gives your baked goods a delicious texture! And as you'll see in these brownies, it's a great substitute for the richness added by eggs, and adds a deliciously fudgy texture.
What can I do with leftover condensed milk?
If you're wondering: what can I use sweetened condensed milk for? I've got so many ideas! I use condensed milk in my Lemon Dump Cake, as well as my Lemon Icebox Pie and Key Lime Pound Cake! It's also so useful in no-bake desserts like my Blackberry Cheesecake Ice Cream! But if you're in the mood for chocolate, you can't go wrong with this easy condensed milk brownie recipe!
- sweetened condensed milk - I use Eagle Brand condensed milk, but your favorite condensed milk brand should work! Or check below for the coconut milk option to make them vegan!
- melted butter - you'll want to use unsalted butter in these brownies. It should be melted and then cooled to room temperature.
- light brown sugar - I love using brown sugar in brownies -- it adds to that chewy, fudgy texture and adds so much flavor!
- vanilla extract - be sure to use a high-quality pure vanilla extract. Or better yet, check out my post on how to make vanilla extract at home with just 2 ingredients!
- unsweetened cocoa powder - my favorite cocoa powder is Ghirardelli, but any unsweetened cocoa powder should work!
- all-purpose flour - make sure you measure your flour with a kitchen scale, or by using the spoon-and-level method.
- baking powder - adding a little baking powder helps to lighten the texture of these brownies a bit, but they're still thick and fudgy!
- sea salt - to bring out the chocolate flavor and offset the sweetness a bit. You can also sprinkle some coarse sea salt on top of your completed brownies!
- semi-sweet chocolate chips - nothing better than gooey chocolate chips inside of freshly baked brownies!
The main tool you'll need for these brownies is a 9x9 baking pan to bake them up. Otherwise, you'll just need some basic mixing tools like a mixing bowl, a whisk, and a rubber spatula!
Condensed Milk Brownies - No Butter
If you prefer, you can make these condensed milk brownies with no butter by just swapping the butter for melted coconut oil or any neutral vegetable oil.
Vegan Condensed Milk Brownies
You can also make these brownies vegan by making the following swaps:
- Swap out the melted butter for melted vegan butter like Earth Balance Organic.
- Make sure your brown sugar is vegan-friendly.
- Use sweetened condensed coconut milk instead of regular sweetened condensed milk!
- Use vegan chocolate chips.
Can you cook with condensed milk?
I don't know of many savory cooking recipes made with condensed milk, since it's so sweet -- I could picture it being used in a sweet-and-salty glazed meat, or in a sweet stir-fry sauce!

We just put our brownies in the oven. It was fun to make with my 2 and 4 year old, plus they were excited to taste the batter. When baking with eggs they can't try so this is a perfect bake with young children. Thank you!
Wonderful! I hope they loved them!
I made these brownies over the weekend and they were incredible! My new favorite brownie recipe!
Thank you! I love these brownies!

These were incredible! I can't wait to make them again. So good and definitely too yummy to share.
I agree! I want to keep them all to myself!
These delicious brownies make the perfect neighbor gift for Christmas! They are easy to make and are always a hit!
Thank you so much!
Those look so amazing! They're so moist, they almost look like fudge. I cannot wait to make these!
Thanks! They're super fudgy!
I want to make these as little additional DIY Christmas gifts for some children. Will they freeze and if so for how long and how should I wrap them? Also, without freezing how long will they keep and how sould I store them?
Hi! Yes they should freeze well for up to two months, wrapped in plastic wrap and then placed in a freezer bag or an airtight container. Otherwise, they should stay fresh at room temperature up to 3 days in an airtight container. Hope this helps!
Good afternoon Sunshine. Can I double the recipe and bake in a half sheet pan?
Hi! I would suggest baking a double batch in a quarter sheet 9x13 pan. If you used a half sheet they would end up too thin I think. With a 9x13 pan they'll be a little thicker and need a couple more minutes in the oven.
Perfect recipe. Brownies were moist and chewy. Really good. The step by step tips were actually helpful.Thanks.
So glad you liked the recipe!! Thanks for the feedback 🙂
This is really tasty and full of flavor! Really loved how easy it is to make! Highly recommended! Loved it!
Glad you enjoyed the brownies! They're SO easy!
We love eggless bakes, and I found this! So easy and fool-proof recipe, turned out so well. Can't wait to bake again this weekend for a charity event.
Thank you so much for the feedback! They're a great eggless option!
Is there anything that condensed milk can’t make it better? Absolutely not and these brownies prove it! So creamy and decadent… Keeping this one for sure.
So glad you liked them! Condensed milk is everything!!
I love brownies, and I love condensed milk - but I almost can’t believe how good they are together!!!! This was a fantastic fudgy treat
So glad you enjoyed! 🙂
I love one bowl recipes! These super dense brownies were so good. The extra chocolate chips was a nice touch.
Thanks! So glad you liked them!
These are the best brownies and are extra fudgy- just how we love them! I love how they are eggless and are so easy to make. Thank you!!
Thank you! The fudgier, the better!
These brownies look absolutely perfect!! I know that these are going to be a hit in my house, saving them to make for when my in-laws come over. Thanks so much for the recipe 🙂
Thank you! Hope everyone loves them!
Omg, I have found my new favorite brownie recipe. These were chewy and gooey, so basically perfect!!
Thank you! I love this recipe so much!
Rich, dense and chocolatey, what more needs to be said of these incredible brownies! I've never made brownies with condensed milk and now that I've got your recipe I may never go back to making them the regular way. One question though, how do I not eat the whole pan myself? lol
I still haven't figured that one either!! haha
Uh.. can you say the fudgiest brownies ever! These were so delicious and the sea salt flakes made them feel decadent. As for left over condensed milk.. goes pretty well in coffee!
Ooh great idea! Glad you liked the recipe! 🙂
These brownies are life changing. I loved them. Super super easy to make and I didn't worry about giving my kids the leftover batter because theres no eggs! This definitely will be my new go to recipe for brownies. I dont need to buy a box mix ever again!
I'm so happy to hear that! And I hadn't even thought about that brownie batter thing -- definitely sneaking a few spoonfuls of batter next time I make these!
Chenée's recipe was - as always - super easy to follow, and these brownies were super easy to make! My fiancé loves all things chocolate, and he LOVED these. He had three last night alone. LOL
I love the spin on preparation and feel like the recipe created a deliciously fudge-y brownie that had just the right amount of gooey-ness. I definitely recommend giving these a try if your house loves brownies. I added just a smidge of almond extract to mine to add a bit more sweetness, as my cocoa powder was hella expired (whoops!), and they came out perfect. I'll do us another batch next week with fresh cocoa powder just to compare!!
Thank you so much Christi! I love the simplicity of this recipe and they can be super addictive!!
