Fudgey Vegan Brownie Bites

Tempeh Bacon Lettuce & Tomato Sammies (2)

Ah Valentine’s Day, the day of chocolate…oh and love. I’ve been trying to perfect the ultimate vegan brownie that doesn’t take like sawdust, require more than one or two bowls and makes my honey ask for “more of those chewy amazing brownies.”

It’s hard to find a vegan brownie that doesn’t require a ton of ingredients and that leaves something to be desired. And I can’t seem to find a brand or company that makes them the way I like them, so lo and behold, these baby brownie bites were born. There’s no real elaborate story leading me to this recipe. Honestly, I woke up one day and decided it was time to make a vegan brownie that didn’t taste like crap and didn’t make me feel like crap. I believe indulgence should be full of pleasure and without any guilt or ill feeling the next day. All love baby 😉

Organic Vegan Brownies

Yes, I promised a brownie recipe and here it is. It is not only ridiculously simple, it is incredibly delicious. This batch of brownies didn’t last more than 2 days. No one will even know they are vegan.The best part? You can cheat. I’ll tell you how!

What you need:

1 Box of Dr. Oetker Organic Chocolate Brownie Mix (Yes it is a mix but it is phenomenal)

**The box calls for eggs and oil but I don’t use eggs**

1 cup of coconut milk (not the canned stuff)

1/4 cup melted vegan butter or olive oil

Ener-g egg replacer (1 egg = 1 1/2 tsp dry Egg Replacer plus 2 tbsp water)

**I only put one egg since I used coconut milk.**

[If you don’t have Ener-g egg replacer or you can’t find Dr. Oetker Organic Chocolate brownie mix, you can always use another brand but preferably organic. instead of Ener-g egg replacer you can use applesauce or Greek yogurt instead]

How you make it:

1. PREHEAT oven to 350°F for a shiny metal pan; 325° for a dark, non-stick pan.
2. GREASE bottom of pan (with vegan butter or olive oil).
3. BLEND organic brownie mix and the rest of the ingredients in a bowl until moistened and well incorporated. Spread into prepared pan.
4. BAKE 25-30 minutes on center oven rack.

Tip: If you want moist brownies cook for 25-30 minutes. Watch carefully and make sure you let these bad boys sit before you decide to take a bite. It is worth the wait. For more cake like brownies cook for 35 minutes.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

Peace, love and no beef!
