Today’s post is all about these Vegan Brownies! Adapted from Jamie Oliver’s website, I made mine with walnuts and a few extra chocolate chips. Honestly, I think these brownies are better than “regular brownies” and they suit anyone who is dairy-free and super easy to make gluten-free!
If you do not have gluten-free self rising flour, that’s ok! If you ever need to make self-rising flour, the ratio is 1 cup all-purpose flour + 1 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt. Since this recipe only takes 3/4 cup flour, tsp of baking powder should suffice.
So here’s the recipe! I’ll bold the ingredients that I changed.
- 5 Tbsp Sunflower Oil ( + extra for greasing pan)
- 1 cup dairy-free dark chocolate
- 3/4 cup gluten-free all purpose flour ( + 1 tbsp of baking powder and pinch of salt)
- 3 Tbsp cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup of maple syrup
- 1 tsp ground vanilla
- 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk
- 2/3 cup walnuts
- 2/3 cup dairy-free chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350F and grease a 9×9 pan with a little sunflower oil.
Melt dairy-free dark chocolate in microwave in heat-proof bowl at 30-second intervals, stirring in-between intervals (Be careful! chocolate can easily burn in microwave).
Mix gluten-free flour mixture, cocoa powder together. Sieve if possible, if not, mix with a whisk until mostly clump free. Mix in maple syrup. Then add ground vanilla and almond milk. Add the sunflower oil and melted chocolate and stir until well-combined.
Pour into greased pan and then add walnuts and chocolate chips to make sure they are evenly distributed.
Put into oven for 20-25 minutes.
Add extra chocolate chips and walnuts on top after removed from oven. 🙂
