Try these fudgey chocolate brownies. They are vegan, made with whole grains, and refined sugar free. I adapted the recipe from King Arthur Flour "Tasting Is Believing Whole-Grain Brownies."

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup flax seed
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 16 dates
  • 1/2 teaspoon molasses
  • 1 cup cocoa
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons espresso powder
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup nut meal
  • 1/4 cup almond milk

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Grease an 8”x8” pan.
  2. Combine flax seed and water. Set aside 5 minutes.
  3. 3. Stir together applesauce, coconut oil, and processed dates. Stir in cocoa, baking powder, espresso, and vanilla. Add flax seed mixture; stir til smooth. Add the flour and/or hazelnut meal; stir til just combined. If brownie mixture is too thick, add in milk 1 tbsp at a time til desired consistency (the batter will be quite thick). Don't over-mix. (Over-mixing can prevent brownies from rising). Spread into pan.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick poked in the center reveals wet crumbs.
  5. Cover and let sit overnight before cutting/serving (this helps reduce the whole wheat texture).
