VEGAN CHOCOLATE BROWNIES

vegan brownies3

I love me a tasty, gooey, chocolate brownie, especially when washed down with a nice cold glass of milk. When I normally make brownies, I use flour, eggs, butter. However, for this version, I used neither. I made these as a gift for a vegan friend’s birthday and they came out better than I expected. They were so rich in flavor and so fluffy, you would not believe that it contained neither flour, nor egg, nor butter. Whether you are vegan or not, you have to try this recipe out. It will be your new favorite one. Enjoy!

Prep Time: 10 Minutes

Cook Time: 20-25 Minutes

Ingredients

3 ripe bananas

½ cup dark cocoa powder

½ cup of sugar

1 cup almond butter, can be coarse or smooth depending on preference, drained of oil

2 capfuls of vanilla extract

coconut oil for greasing pan

Instructions

  • Line a 9×9 in. baking tray with parchment paper and rub with coconut oil to avoid the batter from sticking. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • In a large bowl, mash the bananas until they are smooth. Add the almond butter and mix until it is combined with the bananas. Sift in the dark chocolate, and add the sugar and the vanilla and keep mixing until a smooth batter forms. If you want to add anything extra such as nuts or chocolate chips, you can add them now and mix

  • Let it cool completely before cutting and serving it
