These Vegan Brownies are most definitely chewy, gooey, fudgy, creamy, chocolatey…everything a brownie should be. No refined sugar, no flour, grain-free, gluten-free and the perfect snack any time of the day, especially after a workout. Dare I even say healthy brownie?!
I was so impressed with this experiment, no flour or melted chocolate and it still resembled a brownie. I guess flour really isn’t a brownie essential, but that gooey texture, now that’s compulsory, otherwise you’re in danger of producing a cake and a brownie definitely ain’t no cake!
Questions about Vegan Brownies
How to make vegan flourless from scratch? Vegan brownies are made by mixing fat (nut butter), sugar (maple syrup and bananas), cocoa powder, bicarbonate of soda and nuts together before baking. The brownies are taken out of the oven while the batter is still a little runny and gooey.
Are vegan brownies healthy? Vegan brownies are not necessarily healthy. Flourless brownies are not necessarily healthy. By healthy I refer to calorie, sugar and fat content, all of which do not have to be less in vegan flourless brownies. For anyone that has an intolerance or allergy to gluten, it is most definitely a healthier option, but only because flourless brownies avoid the onset of symptoms triggered by the presence of gluten.
How to make brownies fudgy? The trick to fudgy brownies is to ensure not too much flour is added and the batter is not cooked for too long to avoid becoming more like a sponge cake. Furthermore , adding ingredients such as nut butter or melted chocolate promote a more gooey texture that is rich and creamy.
