You can definitely cook Decadent Chocolate Brownies as a vegan version! There are plenty of vegan brownie recipes available that are just as indulgent and delicious as their non-vegan counterparts. Here’s a simple recipe for vegan chocolate brownies:
- 1 cup vegan all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup vegan cocoa powder (unsweetened)
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vegan baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- Half a cup of plant-based milk, such as oat, almond, or soy-based milk
- 1 teaspoon vegan anilla extract
- 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips (optional)
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease or line an 8×8 inch (20×20 cm) baking pan with parchment paper.
- In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, and salt until well combined.
- In a separate bowl, mix the vegetable oil, plant-based milk, and vanilla extract until well incorporated.
- Mix the dry ingredients after adding the wet ones, just until incorporated.
- If desired, fold in the vegan chocolate chips into the batter.
- Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and spread it out evenly.
- Bake in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs (not wet batter).
- After the brownies have finished cooling in the pan for a few minutes, move them to a wire rack to finish cooling. Once cooled, cut into squares and enjoy your decadent vegan chocolate brownies!
Feel free to adjust the sweetness or add other mix-ins like chopped nuts or dried fruits to make them even more indulgent and personalized to your taste.
Remember that vegan baking might require slight modifications from traditional recipes, but with some experimentation and practice, you’ll be able to create delicious and satisfying treats without any animal products. Enjoy your ultimate indulgence guilt-free
