FUDGY VEGAN BROWNIES


Gluten free + Dairy-free + Vegan




There is a heaven that comes in the form of fudge chocolate brownies. These beauties are so god damn delicious — gluten-free, refined sugar-free and vegan. Trust me you will LOVE them. If you are sensitive to gluten make sure to buy gluten-free oats, pure oats naturally do not contain gluten but are often made in factories that use gluten products.


If you are celiac you can replace the oat meal for a substitute like buckwheat flour or plain GF flour. I haven't tried the substitutes, but I am confident in them providing good results.


Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of oatmeal ( blended whole oats )

  • 2 tbsp ground flax

  • 1 cup of walnuts

  • 1/2 cup dark vegan chocolate chips

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1 cup of pitted dates ( soaked in water )

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil

  • 1/3 cup almond butter

  • 1/3 cup coconut milk ( I used canned full fat coconut milk )

  • 1/4 water




Directions:

  1. Soak 1 cup of dates in 1 cup of warm water for 30 mins or longer.

  2. Preheat your oven to 170 degrees fan forced.

  3. Line or grease a baking dish, I used a silicone square baking dish.

  4. In a large bowl mix together the oatmeal, salt and ground flax.

  5. Once your dates have soaked for 30 mins, add them to a blender with 1/2 cup of the date water you soaked them in.

  6. Add the remaining wet ingredients to the blender almond butter, coconut oil, vanilla extract, coconut milk and water. Process until a smooth texture.

  7. Add the wet ingredients from your blender to the dry ingredients and mix well. Stir through the walnuts and dark chocolate chips.

  8. Bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes, remove when cooked.
