Homemade brownies: one of the most delicious treats in the world and with many people now far more conscious of their health, there is no better excuse for turning them into a healthy vegan treat!
Let me start off this post by saying that I’m not vegan and I’m definitely not a baker, but I do believe that we can still enjoy delicious chocolate treats whilst being healthy at the same time, and so, I thought I’d share with you my favourite vegan brownie recipe.
This foolproof recipe is quick, easy and delicious- making moist vegan brownies time and time again!
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 20-25 minutes
Serves: 9-12 (depending on your portions)
What you’ll need:
For the brownies-
- 3 ripe bananas, the riper the better!
- 100g of plain flour
- 60g cocoa powder
- 2tbsp peanut butter (smooth works best)
- 2tbsp maple syrup
- 1tbsp brown sugar
- 1tsp baking soda
- A splash of dairy-free milk
For the chocolate drizzle-
- 100g vegan chocolate bar
- 1tbsp smooth peanut butter
Step one: Preheat your oven to 160/gas mark 3.
Step two: In a large mixing bowl, mash your three bananas with a fork until smooth.
Step three: Add all the other ingredients into the mixing bowl and then mix together. For this you can either use an electric whisk or a hand whisk. If the batter seems a little dry then add a splash of the dairy-free milk until you think the batter is wet enough.
Step four: Once the batter is mixed, pour into a lined greased baking dish and bake for 20-25 minutes. You’ll know the brownies are ready when you stick a knife into the centre and it comes out clean!
Step five: After you’ve taken the brownies out of the oven, and once they’re cool, you can now make the drizzle for the top! For this, I usually like to cut the brownies first and place them on a sheet of baking paper. To make the drizzle, simply melt together your dairy free chocolate and peanut butter in the microwave, for approximately 15 second intervals, stirring well in-between each turn.
Step six: Drizzle as much of the chocolate peanut butter mix as you like over the brownie pieces, and you’re done!
It really is that simple! To make them even more unique, you can add in some walnuts or shredded coconut!
These brownies make the perfect yummy treat that’ll satisfy all your sweet tooth cravings and sure to be a hit in the office too!
