Delicious vegan brownies

Print Friendly

Vegan brownies are a rich, indulgent sweet treat, perfect to make for friends and family who have a sweet tooth – whether they’re vegan or not.

If you’re making vegan food you won’t be using go-to ingredients like egg, milk or butter. Instead, you’ll usually use oil and dairy-free milk, and rich dark chocolate.

Here are some recipes for vegan brownies that taste just as good as the original.

Basic Chocolate Brownies

For a basic, go-to brownie recipe, try this basic vegan chocolate brownie recipe from BBC food.

You’ll need:

  • 170g self-raising flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 170g caster sugar
  • 5 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 230ml soy milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Method

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.
  2. Sift the dry ingredients together in one bowl, and mix wet ingredients together in another. Pour the wet into dry and mix carefully together until there are no dry bits remaining. Pour the batter into a greased square cake tin.
  3. Bake for about 25 minutes, then cool for five minutes before putting them out on a wire rack.

Enjoy with a glass of soya milk or a cup of tea.

Gooey Vegan Chocolate Brownies

JamieOliverVeganBrownies

Fancy some really decadent, intense chocolate brownies? Look no further than this recipe from Jamie Oliver. The combination of dark chocolate and rich pecans makes these brownies an elegant chocolately treat.

The recipe is straightforward to make and you might already have most of the ingredients in your cupboard from traditional baking, too.

Raspberry Truffle Brownies

Vegan chef Isa Chandra Moskowitz has created a recipe for brownies that aims to be healthier than the others. They use whole-wheat flour and applesauce (which you can usually buy in supermarkets) instead of oil and milk, as well as fresh fruit for added sweetness.

Her raspberry truffle brownies recipe uses a mix of jam and frozen raspberries to help create a sweet, unique taste.

Tips For Success

  • When you’re buying chocolate for your brownie, look out for big bars of dark chocolate. Vegan friendly chocolate is normally of the 70% cocoa variety and up. It’s not as hard as you might think to find – for instance, Green and Blacks dark chocolate contains no ingredients derived from animals, and you’ll find supermarkets and health shops selling many other dairy-free and vegan brands
  • If you don’t like soy milk then you could experiment with almond milk or even coconut milk in your recipe
  • When using U.S. recipes for brownies – or other sweet treats – you’ll find it’s worth investing in measuring cups. You can easily buy these online, in big supermarkets, or in kitchenware and home stores
  • If you don’t want to fork out on measuring cups then this cup to gram conversion chart should come in handy.
  • Make sure you keep an eye on the clock and do not over bake your brownies, otherwise they will be overcooked and not sufficiently ‘gooey’
  • Your cooked brownies should ‘spring back’ when they are lightly pressed
