Delicious Vegan Brownies

These delicious vegan brownies are moist, chocolatey and absolutely delicious.  Just in time for Valentine’s Day. If you have been following me than you know I am not a baker. The last time, I attempted to vegan brownies with black beans was a complete disaster!  My hubby always laughs at me when I try to put a healthy spin on things. I guess that’s what you get for being married to a dietitian. Not only are these brownies delicious but they are super easy to make. These delicious vegan brownies are rich, fudgey, and perfect for Valentie’s Day.

 

I did a lot of research on brownies and used these vegan, gluten free brownies from minimalist baker as a starting point. These delicious vegan brownies are rich, moist and chocolatey. My girls were over the moon to have these with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, if you wanted to keep them vegan I would suggest coconut whipped cream.

By no means will this vegan brownie recipe get the “healthy” label from me because there is still a significant amount of sugar in it. We don’t just eat to nourish our bodies, we also eat for pleasure.  Just try to aim for no more than 20% of the time. Because these brownies are so rich I cut them into 18 slices instead of 9 but its totally your call.
