The Best Vegan Brownies

Folks, this is a special day…


This recipe has been a loooonnng time coming, and my kids are thrilled it’s finally arrived…

I hate to say it, but they get a wary look on their faces when I tell them, “I made dessert!”  Even more so when they know they’re going to be taste-testing a “wonderful new recipe!”

“So what’s in it?” is usually their first question, or, if they’re getting right down to the heart of it, “Um, Mama… did you put any… you know… things that don’t belong in there?  Like beans or something?”  And then their faces will do this thing that I can’t quite duplicate… an expression that’s a cross between negative anxiety if I did (put something “weird” in), and hopeful anticipation if I didn’t.

So good news, kids, this time I didn’t!  These bad boys are made with no beans, no beets, no vegetables of any kind… and they’re also free of butter, eggs, and refined sugar.  What I did use was high-quality chocolate and not too much sweetener, so the nutrition profile is actually quite respectable… for a brownie!  We’re talking almost 5 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber per square, folks!  All this in a super dense, moist, fudgey brownie… they’re just like brownies should be.  Even according to my children.

My best endorsement for these guys?  Having half the pan eaten before I could take the pictures for the blog.  Makes a dietitian Mama’s heart happy!  Enjoy these brownies, friends… they are kid-approved!

    1. Oh good, let me know how you all like it! I used a local brand called “Malagos”… got it from the weekend bazaars at Cuenca… it’s from Davao & really nice. But you could use Baker’s unsweetened from Makati supermarket just as well. 🙂 xxx

  3. Hello, I love your recipe. I have two questions. Can I use any Other kind of egg replacement like Bob’s mill. And the second question, can I add xantan gum? Thanks so much
