Brownies (Healthy and Delicious: vegan and refined sugar and flour free!)

Love Life and Lollipops- Vegan Brownies

These brownies are totally vegan and guilt-free! I posted the pic above on my twitter recently and got a number of requests for the recipe, so here it is:

Ingredients:

  • 2 c whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 c organic cocoa powder (I like Dagoba)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tbsp flax meal
  • 1 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
  • 2 c brown rice syrup
  • 1 c almond milk (I make my own;), but you can totally buy it)
  • 1 c coconut oil (I melt mine in hot water to measure it)
  • 1 tbsp organic vanilla extract
  • 1/4 c maple syrup
  • 1 c chopped walnuts
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Prep 2 muffin tins with liners or grease them with some coconut oil.
  3. Mix the flour, cocoa, baking powder, sea salt, flax meal, and xanthan gum in a bowl until combined.
  4. In a separate bowl combine the rice syrup, milk, oil, vanilla, and maple syrup.
  5. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and combine until just mixed.
  6. Add the walnuts and mix in.
  7. Fill the muffin tins 3/4 full (should make 21).
  8. Bake for 30 min until a knife comes out dry through.
  9. Let cool for 10 min or until they are not too hot to move then transfer them to a cooling rack to cool the rest of the way.

These are a big hit in my house and totally guilt free!  I don't feel badly letting Avital indulge.  It can get dangerous though as I can over indulge too;)
