Vegan Chocolate and Peanut Butter Brownies

Well I wasn’t supposed to post this recipe until later in the week, but the comments on my last week’s WIAW post kind of told me that you all couldn’t wait that long! Vegan Chocolate and Peanut Butter Brownies 100_4021

I was trawling the internet for a decent dairy free recipe and came across this recipewhich I have adapted. These brownies really are dense and fudgy, obviously the amount of time you cook them for. If you like a more solid brownie then just cook them for a little longer. Since I wanted to store some of mine in the freezer I decided to bake my batch for a little longer, but the option is yours.

Anyway I think I had better get on with the recipe now…

Ingredients(makes 16 servings)

2 cups wholemeal plain four

1/3 cup granulated sugar

3 tbsp of crunchy peanut butter (or more if desired!)

2 scoops of Vega Shake Chocolate protein powder

1 tbsp cocoa powder (use a vegan variety)

1 cup of oil (I used rapeseed oil)

1 cup almond milk

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.

Mix together the flour, sugar, protein powder, cocoa powder, salt and baking powder in a large bowl. Next add the oil, vanilla extract, almond milk to the dry ingredients and beat with a wooden spoon until well mixed.

Pour the batter into a round or square non-stick cake tin and bake for 30 minutes until the top is no longer shiny. When cooked take out of the oven and allow to stand for a while to allow the brownies to cool down before cutting.

Enjoy!

The peanut butter and chocolate flavour combination is always a favourite and in these brownies it is amazing. I was even thinking of putting in some Spirutein Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl protein powder until I noticed that it contains bee pollen so didn’t think it would be suitable for some vegans, but I guess it depends on what your boundaries are.

    Brownies with protein powder?! That’s awesome!!! Those look delicious! Even though I’m not vegan, I like vegan recipes, mostly because I hardly ever have milk/eggs/butter in my fridge!

    Do you think i could sub the oil for coconut oil or instead of the oil use more peanut butter? also i know its not vegan but do you think honey would work instead of the white sugar? what other subs apart from stevia, agave etc are there..? date syrup or something?
