Fudgy vegan brownie recipe

Fudgy Vegan Brownies…does it get any better than this? There is absolutely no reason for eggs or dairy to make decadent chocolaty vegan brownies.

All you need are simple plant-based ingredients, a bowl, and an oven. I mean, I suppose you could just skip the oven and eat the batter….it still tastes amazing and it is safe to eat, so why not?!

The batter will be thick, so worry not. Also, the posted recipe calls for chocolate chips or walnuts, but I always add both…Walnuts in brownies is a personal preference and I love the texture and flavor (and nutrients) that walnuts add to this fudgy chocolate vegan brownie.

Even though these vegan fudgy brownies are super chocolaty and rich, they are actually low in fat compared to other brownie recipes. 

The reason for this is because most of the oil is replaced with applesauce and tahini. Replacing oil with these ingredients reduces the amount of fat and adds fiber to the brownies, which makes them healthier. Don’t worry, you cannot tell you are eating healthier vegan brownies!

If you’re feeling up to it, grab a glass of non-dairy milk (or orange juice, because apparently that’s a thing), and bake some epic vegan brownies!

Baking these vegan brownies will take a bit of time (about 50 minutes, total), but they will be oh, so worth it! Once they are all good, share them with friends and family. I’m sure they’ll thank you =]
