Who doesn’t love brownies? I love brownies but since becoming more plant-based it has been quite hard to find a good alternative. But after scouring the internet but inspirations I gave this one a go and hey presto it tastes good!

 

 

I wanted to use a recipe that didn’t include those fancy shamcy vegan ingredients that are super hard to get hold off for anyone with a normal bank balance. So everything I used in this recipe was found in Asda.

 

Ingredients;

  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 and a half cups of smooth peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder
  • 1tsp of baking powder
  • 1tsp of vanilla extract
  • 1tsp of coconut oil
  • 50ml of dairy-free milk (soya, oat, nut)
  • Maple syrup to taste
  • Chocolate chips

Now the cooking part…

 

  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius
  • Mash the bananas – Add peanut butter, milk, syrup, vanilla, (melted) coconut oil
  • Then add cocoa, bicarb soda and chocolate chips
  • Pop into a baking tray of your choice (which you have greased with vegan butter or coconut oil – I used a heart one to make it cute
  • Put in the oven for 20 mins – but check to make sure the top doesn’t catch
  • When finished take out and leave to cool for at least 20 mins before you try and take it out of the tray
  • Decorate with icing sugar and berries/ a raspberry reduction/ yoghurt/ ice cream
