Healthy Thick & Chewy Vegan Walnut Brownies

healthy vegan brownie recipe

To make about 12 of these delicious brownies you will need the following:

1 cup of flour (wholegrain to make it super healthy)
1 tsp baking soda or 2 tsp of baking powder
1 pinch of salt
1 cup of brown sugar
3/4 cup of 100% cocoa powder
1 cup rice milk or soy milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup of apple sauce
1/2 cup or more of crushed walnuts

Mix all dry ingredients together in a bowl; in a separate bowl combine all moist ingredients. Once both mixtures are well stirred, slowly add the wet part to the dry part. Mix until its a nice chocolatey mess. To check taste and consistency have a little try and add whatever you feel is lacking, i.e. more sugar, more vanilla or maybe some nutmeg?

Poor the finished mixture into a greased cake tray and pop it into a preheated oven at around 200 degrees for 30 – 40 minutes. To make sure its baked all the way through stick a clean sharp knife into the brownies; if the knife comes out with no brownie residue it’s ready. Enjoy!

P.s. Adding some chocolate spread as glazing makes these brownies extra delicious.

    Hi Love to try these brownies but I am in the USA and wondering if the 200 degrees is what I should cook them on! Your recipes are great! rhanks

      Hi Pearl, I am not exactly sure but the 200 degrees Celsius should convert to approximately 400 Fahrenheit or gas mark 6. As long as your oven is moderately hot that should be about right. Hope that helps! Let me know how it goes :)

    Is it baking soda or powder?… the picture shows baking soda but ur ingredients show baking powder.

      Oh dear, I never even noticed! Thanks for pointing it out. I’ve now corrected the ingredients list. Here’s hoping it hasn’t ruined any bakes! :)
