I’ve tried quite a few different brownie recipes and to be honest, pretty much every one I’ve tried has resulted in something yummy to eat, after all if you’re mixing things together with chocolate you can’t go far wrong in my book.
What I often get cravings for as a vegan though are certain textures, the texture of cake, that gooey cake bite of a brownie, the texture of cream… Well this recipe gives you that and pop a can of coconut milk in the fridge beforehand, you’ll have some cream to serve the brownies with! Oh and they contain no refined sugar!
- 1 Bar of good quality dark chocolate (blitz in a blender or grate)
- 2 tablespoons of good quality coco powder
- 3 heaped tablespoon of coconut oil
- half cup of aquafaba
- 1 cup of plain flour
- half a cup of chopped nuts
- 2 tablespoon of desiccated coconut
- 1 tablespoon of chopped unsweetened coconut (plus some for decorating)
- half a cup of agave syrup
- Mix the blitzed chocolate, coco powder, coconut oil, coconut, agave syrup and chopped nuts together in a bowl.
- Whisk up the aquafaba until its starting to hold some shape (this can take a few minutes)
- add the flour to the chocolate mix and combine.
- Start to fold in the whisked aquafaba a tablespoon at a time until it is all combined into a glorious chocolate goo!
- Put the mixture into a lined brownie tin, decorate with leftover coconut and bake at 160c for approx. 20 minutes. Brownies are ready when you’re house smells amazing and they are firm to touch.
- Leave to cool, chop them up, serve with coconut cream for a seriously good vegan treat!
