Description

Ingredients

  • 1 ripe banana (make sure it's very ripe to ensure maximum sweetness)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 cup agave nectar OR 100% pure maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup GF baking flour or blanched almond flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 - 1 cup vegan chocolate chips (optional)
  • salt to taste
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325ยบ
  2. In a stand mixer add your banana and mix until completely smooth and there are no chunks remaining.
  3. Add in the remaining wet ingredients (minus the water) and mix on medium speed for 30 seconds to 1 minute
  4. Add in all your dry ingredients and mix on low and gradually increase the speed. Mix for 1 minute
  5. Once the mixture is well combined, add the 1/4 cup of water and mix on medium-high speed for 1-1.5 minutes.
  6. If you want to add the chocolate chips, then add in HALF of your chocolate chips (save the rest for later) and fold them into the batter. Do not over mix.
  7. Prepare you square pan by lining it with parchment paper - this recipe is 100% oil free so no cooking spray was used in the pan either.
  8. Add the batter into the pan and spread evenly. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips over the batter
  9. Bake in the over for 20-25 minutes.
  10. Vegan Fudge Brownies Let cool for at least 10-15 minutes before cutting. If you're impatient like me, then cut right away and enjoy :)
Note
if you want an every fudgier (is that even a word?) brownie, then just mix the batter for a little bit longer and add an additional 2 tbsp of water.
