Molten Lava Brownies (vegan | gluten-free | grain-free | refined sugar-free)

I know what you’re thinking…brownies are already gooey enough, why do they need a molten lava centre? Well when you couple a regular brownie with ice cream, can you truly say that you have the full advantage of feasting your eyes on an oozing river of liquid chocolate dance with the waves of that viscous ice cream when your spoon sinks into its depths? I think not. But if you want it to, here’s how you can go about it…


Serving size:

Makes 4 large lava brownies or 8 small ones


  • 300g pumpkin puree
  • 80g cocoa powder
  • 50g coconut sugar
  • 4 tbsp nut butter
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp baking powder


  1. Preheat oven to 180C.
  2. In a saucepan, heat the maple syrup and nut butter until runny.
  3. Pour into a bowl and fold in the rest of the ingredients until a smooth batter results.
  4. Pour into individual ramekins and bake for 15-20 minutes.
  5. Remove and allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving.

Now watch that brownie jiggle its stuff before it ends up in your mouth!
