The Best Vegan Brownies

The following is a great vegan brownie recipe by Molly Buszard ( follow her at @mollybhealthy ). 

At age 19, Molly suffered from coeliac and RA but was able to keep her health issues under control through exercising, living with a positive mindset, and by following a strict diet free from gluten and dairy.  Now at age 21, she lifts weights, writes as a food blogger, and runs a healthy snack company.

 

INGREDIENTS:

2oz or 60g Smooth Almond Butter (Swap for tahini if allergic to nuts!)

1.8oz or 50g Coconut Sugar (Brown Sugar works too!)

2.9oz or 80g Maple Syrup

1.8oz or 50g Coconut Oil

0.5oz or 15g Flax (2 Tbsp)

6 Tbsp Water

2oz or 60g Raw Cacao Powder

2oz or 60g GF Flour

1.4oz or 40g Chocolate Chips (Optional)

​1/2 Tsp Salt

CARAMEL SAUCE:

1.0oz or 30g of Hey Boo Coconut Caramel 

ADD:  1/2 Tbsp Pink Salt

 

 

METHOD:

1. In a mixing bowl, add the almond butter, coconut sugar, maple syrup, salt and coconut oil (melted). Whisk together on high to create a 'caramel.' Put to one side.

2. In a separate bowl add the flax and the water to make the flax seed eggs, leave to set for around 5-10 minutes.

3. Pour the flax egg into the 'caramel' mixture slowly.

4. Next add slowly add the cacao powder in. Followed by the rice flour.

5. Combine so everything is mixed together.

6. You can add in nuts or chocolate chips at this point. Fold them through the mixture with a spatula.

7. Pour your mixture into a square cake tin (8x8 I used) lined with baking parchment or coconut oil. 

8. Pop your brownie mixture into the oven for around 20 minutes if you like them gooey, or a little longer if not.

9. Leave to cool then cut into 16 squares.

10. Pour Hey Boo coconut caramel sauce (with the added Salt) over brownies.

11. Store in an air-tight container.
