Gluten-Free, Vegan Brownies Gluten-Free, Vegan Brownies Yvonne Briggs
I love brownies, I mean like who doesn't. Being on the paleo diet or any allergy diet doesn't mean you have to go without some of life's favorite foods, like gluten free, vegan brownies. It took me months to come up with the recipe. I love baking but I am not a baker that can just come up with baked goods recipes on the fly. One day while experimenting with this recipe I used the wrong measuring cup so I had measured everything wrong then wound up adding coconut milk to add moisture. It turned out to be a good mistake because the brownies came out pretty good. I ended up changing some of the measurements and keeping the coconut milk.

  • Ingredients: 3/4 cup cassava flour
    1/2 cup tigernut flour
    1/3 cup cocoa powder
    1 1/4 cup coconut sugar
    1/2 teaspoon sea salt
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    10 oz chocolate chunks, divided, I use Enjoy Life
    1 cup organic applesauce
    1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    1/3 cup coconut butter
  • Instructions: 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    2. Combine dry ingredients (cassava flour, tigernut flour, cocoa powder, coconut sugar, sea salt, and baking powder).
    3. Measure 6oz of chocolate and melt over a double boiler.
    4. When the chocolate is melted pour into bowl with dry ingredients.
    5. Add the remaining wet ingredients (applesauce, coconut butter, coconut milk, and vanilla extract), mix till combined.
    6. Fold in the remained 4oz of chocolate chunks.
    7. Grease baking dish with coconut oil and pour brownie mix into the baking dish. Spread the brownie mix till even.
    8. Bake for 45 minutes.
    9. Remove from the oven and test doneness with a toothpick. If the toothpick comes out clean or with a few crumbs then the brownies are done.
    10. Let cool before cutting and serving.
