If you’re anything like me, then you have an unbelievable obsession with brownies. Something about their ooey gooey texture and the way they simply melt in your mouth as you take a bite…wow i need to stop before I gain another 20 lbs just thinking about them.
Although I no longer consider myself a vegan (more about that in a future post), there is something unbelievably therapeutic about re-creating an unhealthy recipe using all natural, healthier ingredient substitutes. I wanted to express my love for brownies to the world by sharing an amazing recipe for a healthier-version of this beloved snack. Now I must warn you that these are super rich, fudgy, and delicious so if you’re trying to make them just for yourself, thinking that no one else will want them because they’re healthy, good luck. I nearly had to pry the pan away from my Husband who tried to finish the entire batch in one sitting! and he’s not even a healthy eater at all.
without further adieu, let’s get right into this recipe:
- 1 cup sprouted oat flour
- 1/3 cup almond or coconut flour
- 2 tbsp arrowroot powder
- 1/8 tsp baking powder
- 1/8 tsp baking soda
- 3/4 cup sugar (use 2 to 3 tbsp less for less sweet), preferably powdered
- Pinch of salt
- 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips which will be added to the batter
- 1/3 cup cocoa
- 3 tbsp old fashioned rolled oats
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup non dairy milk (I use almond milk)
- 4 tbsp melted coconut oil (apple sauce can be substituted for a lower fat option)
- Preheat over to 350 degrees and begin preparing your ingredients.
- In a mixing bowl, combine flours with sugar and salt making sure to blend well together using a hand mixer.
- Add the rest of the dry ingredients including the oats (I like to add the chocolate chips last after the batter is fully finished). Combine well and set aside.
- In a separate bowl, combine the wet ingredients and then pour into the bowl with the dry ingredients and mix well. This can be done using large spoon or a hand mixer.
- Finally, fold in the chocolate chips and pour in a brownie pan.
- Stick it in the oven for about 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool before slicing.
