vegan brownie action

Gotta love pinterest.  I found this recipe for vegan brownies and just had to have a try.  I think mine rose a bit too much so didn’t have the density that I am a fan of in a brownie.  They were rather yummy though – the middle had the fudginess.  Next time I will reduce the vinegar a bit.

I made some changes so for ease here is my ingredient list

  • 2 ¼ cup spelt flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • 2  tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 40g vegan chocolate bar, chopped
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts (could have done with more though)
  • 1 medium banana, whizzed
  • ¼ cup apple sauce (because I didn’t have enough banana)
  • 2 cups oat milk
  • 3 tsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

Method: mix wet, mix dry, combine, pour into greased tray and bake. Mine was in a small tray so had to cook for about 45 minutes at 180°C, but just cook until a toothpick comes out clean.

Makes lots of brownie!

So what do you do when you have a glut of brownie? Make a delicious vegan milkshake of course.

For one generous serving I whizzed up one small banana, 1 tbsp peanut butter, chocolate oat milk (to desired consistency), one brownie chopped up and stirred in.

Perfect for a simple Sunday night treat.  I think this would make an awesome ice-cream combo too.  And I could have it for breakfast too right? It is practically a combination of breakfast items, no?

I am now over half way through Vegan June and must say I haven’t struggled at all.  It has had the benefit/agony that when going out for tea I can’t ‘treat’ myself to cake.  I still don’t think I would be permanently vegan but I can definitely keep my dairy consumption low once the month is done.  I certainly think the vegan baking will continue as I like the challenge.

p.s. I love that British summer means I could take the pictures of my milkshake at about 8pm at night.
