Vegan Cocoa Brownies Recipe

Baking terrifies me. Maybe because so far I’ve only tried vegan baking and that has to be the hardest thing ever – no milk, eggs, chocolate – what is left? Especially if you are trying to do a brownie – the very epitome of a decadent chocolate treat.

This recipe does the trick and as an extra bonus it is really quick and easy. Clearly though, you will not get the same taste as a true chocolate brownie so adjust your expectations before giving this one a try. It comes from Terry Walters’ Clean Start Cookbook which I thoroughly recommend if you are in the market for a good vegan seasonal cookbook.

Vegan Cocoa Brownies Recipe



0.5 apple

8 pitted dates

1 ripe banana

0.5 cup maple syrup

1 tsp vanilla extract

0.5 cup flour

0.5 cup almond meal

0.5 cup cocoa powder

2 tsp baking powder

0.5 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt


1. Pre-heat oven to 175 C. Line a small baking tray with a baking sheet.

2. Combine the apple, dates, banana, maple syrup and vanilla extract and process until the ingredients are well mixed (I used my Vita but I am sure any food processor would do).

3. In a separate bowl combine the dry ingredients.

4. Combine the dry and wet ingredients together and mix well (I used just a fork and they combined easily).

5. Pour the mixture into the banking tray and leave in the oven for 25 minutes.

6. Taa daaaa – you arer now a vegan master Chef!
