During my googling for a dairy free brownie recipe I found that many people were making reference to the fact that some recipes had eggs in them, stating that they weren't "dairy-free" because there were eggs. My DD is odd in that she is allergic to egg yokes as well as all dairy, but as far as I know, eggs come from chickens, dairy (generally) from cows. Why do people assume dairy=eggs?

Also, side note: anyone have a good dairy free, egg yoke free recipe for brownies and/ or cookies?

Only in this country, LOL! As a Canadian, that confused the heck out of me. I think it is because eggs and milk are traditionally in the "dairy" case in the stores. It figures Americans would classify foods based on their supermarket groupings rather than the creatures they come from :

Anyhow, I don't think there is any reason to assume egg and milk allergies are linked .

I get asked that all the time! My boys can't do dairy so people always ask if eggs are ok? Baffles me.

I had someone make the no-egg assumption when I said were consumed no dairy, it was odd. I agree with mamafish, the only reason I can tell is that they're refrigerated together in most grocery stores.

As for brownies, I've just recently learned the wonders of boxed GF mix, the Cherrybrook brand of brownies are really, really yummy. I haven't tried making my own yet (not sure if you need GF, if not, there's got to be a cheaper approach, I just don't know it).

I've not tried the Cherrybrook Kitchen brownie mix yet, but their chocolate cake mix is fabulous.

I've had reasonably good luck using Duncan Hines brownie mix and subbing 1/4 cup mashed tofu per egg.

There's also a dairy and egg free brownie recipe in The Bakin' Without Egg cookbook by an author with the last name Emro... I have the cookbook around here somewhere still.

When I was little, I thought dairy meant eggs and milk products.

Did they used to be pictured together on the food pyramid we were brainwashed with?
