The most addictive brownies I’ve ever done. Last week my mom requested a new dessert, specifically brownies, so I found myself wondering how to make some delicious but still super healthy brownies without oils and gluten. I made two different experiments, and both tasted really yummy, but the second one, oh my… Try it yourself!
Gastrawnomica’s Fudgy Vegan Brownies (Oil free, Gluten free)
Makes 6-8 squares
1 3/4 cups gluten free flour blend
1/3 cup raw cacao powder
1 cup sweet potato puree
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup almond or soy milk
1/2 cup coconut sugar
2 tbsp crunchy almond butter (can use other nut butters, just make sure it is crunchy)
Preheat oven at 180ºC.
Start by making your sweet potato puree, (I suppose you can use bananas too but haven’t tried it yet). I blended my apple after removing the core with bananas on the vitamix, no need to add any liquid. You can use a food processor or high speed blender until it is completely smooth and looks like this:
In a separate bowl, mix sugar, baking powder, flour and cacao powder. Add fruit puree, almond butter and mix while adding the water slowly. It should resemble a traditional cake/brownie batter.
Pour mixture over a square or loaf pan, -you can use silicon molds to avoid using oil- if using glass bakeware, grease with a little bit of coconut oil, making sure you cover all the edges.
Bake for 30-40 minutes, until it is fully cooked in the center. Let it chill for 20-30 minutes before cutting. Serve with your favorite topping or banana ice cream!
They should be gooey and soft inside, but fully cooked on the outside. Absolutely delicious. Please don’t forget to tell me how it goes and send me a picture if you make them! Enjoy!
