Dark Vegan Brownies


Brownies must be the ultimate chocolate treat! What better way is there to satisfy a crazy sweet tooth, than to put your teeth in a brownie?? Here is a recipe for my healthier brownies, that wont make you feel like you’ve committed a sin after eating them…:-)

Dark Vegan Brownies

Makes 5 brownies.

  • ¼ cup, (45g) coconut oil
  • ¼ cup + 2 tsp (100g) agave
  • 1/3 cup (50g) spelt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • ¼ cup + 2 tsp (25g)
  • cocoa powder, preferably Valrhona
  • 1 ½ tsp ground flax seeds
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 2oz (56 g) unsweetened apple sauce

Turn the oven to 325 degrees. Prepare a small muffin tin with cupcake liners.

In a small bowl, melt coconut oil in microwave. It only takes about 5-10 sec. Stir in agave, vanilla and apple sauce.

In a medium bowl, mix flour, flax seeds, salt, baking powder and cocoa powder. Add the wet ingredients and mix everything together briefly.

Use a large ice cream scoop, or a spoon, and fill the muffins tins 3/4 of the way.

Bake 13 min for soft brownies or 15 min for more firm brownies. Bake in the middle of the oven. Cool on rack.
