8 Vegan Brownies Recipes You Need To Try

Brownies are the ultimate comfort food. If you have a sweet tooth, it’s hard to compete with this rich, fudgy and chocolatey treat, and don’t let a plant-based diet get in the way of this. Vegan brownies are so easy to make and they taste just as good! You can make so many easy substitutes with any animal products that would go into a regular recipe, so next time you’re making brownies, why not try a vegan recipe? Whether you’re plant-based or not, vegan brownies are so delicious—here are eight of the best recipes to get you started!

1. Double Chocolate Brownies

Nothing beats a classic chocolate brownie. As easy as it is to just reach for a box of Betty Crocker, a plant-based recipe can turn out just as good—if not better. These double chocolate vegan brownies are rich and fudgy, no one will even be able to tell the difference between regular brownies. This recipe is really easy to follow and gives you the best brownies every time. The key is the baking time, so make sure you pay attention to how long you leave them in, and the temperature of your oven. If you want them to be gooey, take them out of the oven a few minutes early, just before they feel like they’re done, and let them sit for a few minutes as they will harden as they cool. This will ensure that they don’t turn out like chocolate cake rather than brownies. The ingredient in this recipe that you may not recognise is the flax egg, but it is just ground flax seeds mixed with water to get an egg-like consistency that will make sure your brownies get the perfect texture. This is a really easy and effective substitute for eggs that you can use in so many plant-based recipes!

Peanut butter and chocolate is always a great combination, especially when it comes to brownies.

It only requires nine ingredients, including ground oats rather than flour to make them a slightly healthier alternative to regular brownies. Peanut butter brownies are great if you prefer something slightly less rich and a little bit less sweet than regular brownies as the peanut butter gives you a more balanced taste. These are best served warm from the oven, drizzled with some more melted peanut butter!

4. Espresso Brownies

Chocolate and coffee is one of the best flavour combinations, whatever form it takes. In brownies, coffee and chocolate taste so good together, so your next vegan brownies recipe has to be this one! This recipe specifically calls for organic baking cocoa to get a richer chocolate flavour that really complements the bitter of the espresso. To get the coffee taste to come through, you need to either use coffee from an espresso machine or brew some very strong coffee to add into your mixture. If it isn’t strong enough, the chocolate will mask the taste of it. Because these are plant-based and gluten-free, they are more delicate and lighter than regular brownies. Be careful when removing them from the pan as they will break much more easily.

This recipe is also gluten-free and oil-free so the perfect healthy alternative to your regular box brownies!

6. Cookie Dough Brownies

These cookie dough brownies combine two of the best junk foods to make a perfect treat! As unhealthy as these look, this vegan recipe actually uses dates to sweeten rather than refined sugar, so they are a much cleaner alternative to most baked treats. This recipe uses two layers to combine the brownies and cookie dough, but if you want to try something a little bit more complicated, you can sandwich the cookie dough in between two layers of the brownie mixture. To make them even more decadent, drizzle some melted chocolate on top when they come out of the oven and either eat hot or let the chocolate harden again for another layer on top!
