Vegan Gluten-Free Almond Brownies

Vegan Gluten-Free Almond Brownies

Jun 19th 2018

Brownies are a dessert that doesn't require a special occasion for you to enjoy. They always make everyone smile and usually don't stay around for long. Decadent brownies are always a hit, especially when healthy ingredients take center stage. These sweet squares are vegan, gluten-free and don't include any refined flour or refined sugar. We use Organic Cacao that creates that smoothness we all look for in a chocolate dessert.  For the base, we substituted all-purpose flour for almond meal, which you can easily make in your own kitchen. Just grind the almonds in a high-power blender or a coffee grinder - it works just as well. With the addition of almonds, these vegan and gluten-free delights contain healthy fats, fiber, protein, magnesium, and vitamin E. They are soft, fudgy, moist, and will quickly become a family favorite.

If you don't have a go-to brownie recipe that's healthy and delicious, give these Vegan Gluten-Free Almond Brownies a go. They won't disappoint.

  4. Place the almonds in a high-power blender (or coffee grinder) and pulse until a flour-like consistency. Do not over blend, or you will end up with almond butter.

  6. Add the vanilla, flax eggs, maple syrup, and coconut oil. Mix well.
  7. Stir in the salt and baking powder.
