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.
