A good brownie recipe is something you need to hold on TIGHT to when you come across it! Here on the blog, we have something brownie-wise to suit EVERYONE- there are eggless brownies, paleo sweet potato brownies with tahini and even instant pot brownies if baking without an oven is your thing! Today we’re bringing a new brownie recipe to the crew, so say hello to vegan gluten free nut free brownies! As you can probably tell, these brownies are likely to be able to please EVERYONE at your family gathering or get together, and whether you are eating vegan or not, you will absolutely love them! These brownies are chewy, perfectly sweet and oh so decadent. Bake yourself up a pan and you won’t regret it!
You may be wondering, since these are vegan and gluten free chocolate brownies, what ARE they made with? The truth is, a vegan brownie recipe does not have to require any hard-to-pronounce ingredients. You might even have everything you will need already! Here’s the list:
- Flax Meal
- Hot Water
- Vegan Butter
- Avocado or Coconut Oil
- 1:1 Gluten Free Flour
- Cocoa Powder
- Non GMO Cornstarch
- Baking Powder
- Dairy Free Mini Chocolate Chips
How to make Vegan Gluten Free Brownies
Combine the flax meal with the hot water and let it sit until it forms a gel, whisking every once in a while.
Line the bottom of a pan with parchment paper and spray or rub the sides with oil. Preheat your oven while you make the batter.
In a large bowl, add the butter, sugar and oil and microwave on high until the butter melts. Stir it well, until everything is smooth and combined. Add in the flax meal gel, remaining hot water and vanilla and stir to combine. Add in all remaining ingredients other than the chocolate chips and stir again. Fold in the chips gently.
Using a rubber spatula, scoop the batter into the prepared pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Place the brownies on a cooling pad immediately in the fridge for a bit, then let them cool completely on the counter. Slice and serve- enjoy!
Top Tips For Making Vegan Gluten Free Brownies
- Make the Flax Gel first: Since the flax meal and water take some time to form a gel, I recommend mixing them first, before doing anything else!
- Cool the Brownies: For the chewiest, fudgiest brownies, I recommend placing the hot pan directly on a hot pad in the fridge once it comes out of the oven. This will stop the brownies from continuing to bake, and keep them from drying out.
How to store Gluten Free Brownies
These brownies keep great both in the fridge and the freezer. To store, place them in an airtight container. To keep them in the fridge, they will last up to a week. In the freezer, the airtight container should last up to 3 months.
This is where you can get creative! These brownies would be delicious with some vegan ice cream or coconut whipped cream and a side of fresh fruit- I recommend cherries or strawberries! Another delicious addition would be to drizzle your favorite nut butter overtop- I suggest cashew, almond or peanut butter.
