HEALTHY THICK & CHEWY VEGAN WALNUT BROWNIES
makes about 12 brownies:
- 1 cup of flour (wholegrain to make it super healthy)
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 cup of brown sugar
- 3/4 cup of 100% cocoa powder
- 1 cup rice milk or soy milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup of apple sauce
- 1/2 cup or more of crushed walnuts
Mix all dry ingredients together in a bowl; in a separate bowl combine all moist ingredients. Once both mixtures are well stirred, slowly add the wet part to the dry part. Mix until its a nice chocolatey mess. To check taste and consistency have a little try and add whatever you feel is lacking, i.e. more sugar, more vanilla or maybe some nutmeg?
Poor the finished mixture into a greased cake tray and pop it into a preheated oven at around 200 degrees for 30 - 40 minutes. To make sure its baked all the way through stick a clean sharp knife into the brownies; if the knife comes out with no brownie residue it’s ready. Enjoy!
P.s. Adding some chocolate spread as glazing makes these brownies extra delicious.
Someone asked the other day how to tell if your eggs have gone bad without cracking them open to find out! Here ya go!
This is particularly useful if you don’t see a best before date or you’ve just passed it (most eggs are fine up to a week past their date, sometimes longer).
