Vegan Chocolate Brownies

Vegan Chocolate BrowniesOne thing you can never have enough of during the autumn/winter months is chocolate! Being vegan or having a dairy allergy shouldn’t mean that you can’t enjoy these treats so I’m sharing with you my hugely popular vegan brownie recipe – Loved by dairy eaters and avoiders alike!

I made two batches of these last week, one for the guys at work and one for my family. Both batches were gobbled up surprisingly quickly (within a few hours) with a lot of positive feedback and requests for the recipe. When I explained that they were in fact dairy-free they were astounded because you really can’t tell the difference!
Happy vegan baking!

Makes 16

1 & 1/2 cups plain flour
pinch salt
1 tightly packed cup of light muscovado sugar (or other fine brown sugar)
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup cocoa powder
100g vegan milk chocolate, melted
1/2 cup dairy free butter/margarine at room temp (about 110g)
1 cup sweetened soya milk (or other dairy-free milk such as almond)
1 tsp vanilla extract
90g dark chocolate cut into small chunks

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius (350 F) and line a baking tray with grease-proof/baking paper. (If you have a silicone baking tray you do not need to do this.)
  2. In a mixing bowl, add the flour, salt, sugar, baking powder and cocoa powder. Stir until combined.
  3. Pour in the melted vegan milk chocolate, dairy free butter, soya milk and vanilla to the bowl and beat/whisk for a few minutes until the mixture becomes thick, creamy and fully combined.
  4. Fold in the dark chocolate chunks and mix to ensure they are distributed evenly.
  5. Pour the brownie mix into the baking tray and smooth the top.
  6. Bake for 35 minutes or until the top looks cooked and a skewer comes out clean when poked into the centre of the tray bake.
  7. Allow to cool before slicing and serving this ensures that the middle is set.
  8. Eat & enjoy or place in the fridge until desired.
