These Best Vegan double chocolate brownies are moist and fudgy. Unsweetened cocoa powder and dark chocolate chips make them very chocolaty & decadent.
For the final day of this week’s Blogging Marathon, I made a moist and fudgy vegan brownies. Vegan is the theme of the week and I wanted to finish the week on a sweet note. Recipe is from Vegan Food52 cookbook and has been on my to-try list for quite some time now.
Vegan Double Chocolate Brownies:
I’ve made vegan brownies with tofu years ago. But they were not received very well by the family. To put it mildly, I was told to never make them AGAIN.
Since then I’ve stopped baking ‘healthy’. I bake regular recipes not too often and always make sure that we exercise portion control.
Ingredients for Vegan Brownies:
These vegan double chocolate brownies are not considered healthy by any means. But they are made with 100% vegan ingredients:
- Almond milk – feel free to use any other non-dairy milk
- Organic Cane sugar – refined sugar is filtered and bleached with bone-char. Hence it is neither vegetarian nor vegan. Look for brands that specifically say, vegan friendly or buy beet sugar.
- Vegan chocolate chips.
I like my brownies more cakier than fudgy. These turned exactly how I like them – very moist, cakey and delicious. Serve them as is with a glass of milk or with some vegan ice cream on top.
