— When I was growing up in the Midwest, the dairy free version of brownies were a common treat.
Now, with all the vegan options out there, the trend is even more appealing.
In this post, we’ll explore how to make the best brownies on the market and share how to get the best bang for your buck.
If you’re vegan and want to make vegan brownies, here are a few tips: Dairy free brownie recipe: I love using organic ingredients.
That’s why we use organic ingredients and don’t use anything artificial.
We use a blend of coconut oil, almond milk, cashew butter, cocoa butter and other plant-based ingredients.
This ensures the flavors blend well together and you get the perfect balance of coconut and almond.
The recipe for our vegan brownie is a blend.
Dry chocolate frosting recipe: Dries for 30 minutes, then stir until smooth.
Here’s a simple, vegan-friendly frosting for our brownies: 1/4 cup cocoa powder, plus more for dusting the edges of the pan.
1/2 cup almond milk (or other plant milk) 1/3 cup almond flour 1/8 teaspoon salt 1/16 teaspoon baking soda 1/12 teaspoon vanilla extract (or more for sprinkling on top)1/2 teaspoon almond extract 1/5 cup unsweetened coconut, mashed or chopped (optional) (optional, but we recommend this for the chocolate frostings) 1 cup brown sugar, packed in small pieces (optional but preferred) Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a small bowl, whisk together the coconut oil and almond milk until creamy.
Add the almond flour, salt, baking soda and vanilla extract.
Whisk until well combined.
Mix in the dry ingredients until well blended.
Stir in the chocolate.
Stir until the mixture is smooth and incorporated into the batter.
Sprinkle with the remaining dry ingredients and chocolate.
Place in the preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the brownies are set and the center is slightly brown.
Remove from the oven and let cool slightly before frosting.
Recipe Notes: You can also substitute coconut milk for the almond milk if you like a more coconut flavor.
The frosting is best with 1/6 cup of coconut milk in a bowl.
This helps the texture of the frosting hold together better.
For vegan browni recipes, try using almond milk instead of coconut, and you can also use coconut cream or other plant milks if you prefer.
