Ingredients You'll Need

To make your vegan brownies, gather the following ingredients:

Dry Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour – This provides the structure for your brownies.
  • 1 cup granulated sugar – Sweetens the brownies.
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder – Gives the brownies their rich chocolate flavor.
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder – Helps the brownies rise slightly.
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt – Enhances the overall flavor.

Wet Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil or melted coconut oil – Adds moisture and richness.
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract – Adds depth to the flavor.
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk or any plant-based milk – Replaces traditional dairy milk.

Optional Add-Ins

  • 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips – For an extra burst of chocolate.
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts – Adds a crunchy texture.

Step-by-Step Instructions

Follow these steps to create your vegan brownies:

Step 1: Preheat Your Oven

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease an 8x8-inch baking pan or line it with parchment paper.

Step 2: Mix Dry Ingredients

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Whisk until well combined.

Step 3: Mix Wet Ingredients

In a separate bowl, whisk together the vegetable oil, vanilla extract, and almond milk.

Step 4: Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients

Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix, as this can result in dense brownies.

Step 5: Add Optional Ingredients

If using, fold in the vegan chocolate chips and chopped nuts.

Step 6: Bake

Pour the brownie batter into the prepared baking pan. Spread it out evenly using a spatula. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Step 7: Cool

Allow the brownies to cool in the pan for at least 15 minutes before cutting them into squares.

Tips for Perfect Vegan Brownies

  • Achieving the Perfect Texture: For fudgier brownies, use more oil. For cakier brownies, add a bit more almond milk.
  • Substitute Ingredients: If you don't have almond milk, try other plant-based milk like soy or oat milk.
  • Cooking Times: Oven temperatures can vary. Start checking your brownies at the 25-minute mark to avoid overbaking.

Serving Suggestions

  • With Vegan Ice Cream: Serve your warm brownies with a scoop of your favorite vegan ice cream for an indulgent treat.
  • Fruit Compote: Top with a homemade fruit compote made from berries, sugar, and a splash of lemon juice.
  • Nuts and Drizzles: Garnish with a sprinkle of chopped nuts or a drizzle of melted vegan chocolate.
