Healthy, Vegan & Gluten-free ๐ŸŒฑ

If you know we well, you know I always love developing healthy vegan recipes without sacrificing the taste. And this is no exception. In this recipe, given that only ground up oats and chickpea flours was used, it is flourless and naturally gluten-free. ๐Ÿ˜ŒAs for the sweetener, I used molasses and applesauce, which also serves as an oil substitution here. Now you may wonder, if there is no oil used in this recipe, is it another disappointing brownie recipe that yields a dry and crumbly outcome? I can assure you that this is by no means the case.๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

Secret Ingredient

Despite no eggs, no butter and no oil was used in this recipe, this flourless gingerbread brownie is super moist, fudgy and most importantly, with a crispy top. ๐Ÿ˜ŽThis recipe is indeed inspired by a zucchini bread recipe I was testing a few weeks ago (don’t worry, I will post the recipe soon!). I added one whole zucchini in the brownie and before you reject the idea of zucchini in a brownie. Let me tell you that no one, and I mean NO ONE, realise the existence of it! ๐Ÿ˜I gave this brownie to my friends and families for taste test and all of them love it without even noticing that they are that healthy!๐Ÿ˜‰

  • In a large mixing bowl, mix all wet ingredients well.
  • Gently fold in the dry ingredients and mix until everything is incorporated.
  • Fold in 1 cup of vegan chocolate chips and pour the mixture in your desired baking pans (about 1-1.5 inch high).
