Vegan Chocolate Nut Brownie Baked

 

Here’s our recipe for the ultimate vegan chocolate nut brownies. These brownies have a rich chocolate flavour and the protein content is enhanced by using our high protein content chocolate and lots of nuts.

100% Plant-Based Vegan Chocolate Nut Brownies

(prep 10-15 minutes and cook time 20 minutes). Makes 16 brownie slices.

Ingredients

  • 270g Rebel Chocolate “Peanut Power” chocolate (3 x 90g bars)
  • 250g self-raising flour (or plain flour + 1 tsp baking powder)
  • 290g demerara sugar (other cane sugars are fine also)
  • ½ tsp of salt.
  • 250ml soya milk
  • 140ml vegetable oil
  • 200g mixed nuts, or just one nut type, as you prefer

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C/gas 4 and grease, or greaseproof paper line, an appropriate sized baking dish. We used a 20cm x 30cm dish, but we would not go larger than this.
  2. Melt the chocolate: Break the chocolate into pieces and place in a heat-proof bowl. You just want to melt the chocolate, and any method that works for you is fine. However, if you are not experienced in using a microwave to melt chocolate then this might be best avoided. Microwaves can heat localised areas quickly and this can cause the chocolate to burn. A more controllable approach is to use the bain marie method. Here you place your bowl of chocolate pieces over a pot of very gently simmering water.
  3. Mix the remaining ingredients: Mix the flour, sugar and salt together then add in the oil and soya milk. We used an electric mixer so as to avoid any nasty lumps.
  4. When you are happy that the ingredients in “3” above are lump free add in the nuts and then mix this slowly together with the melted chocolate. We kept aside a small handful of the nuts to add around the top of the mixture once poured into the baking dish.
  5. Finally, add the whole mixture into the baking dish and place into the pre-heated oven for 20 minutes. Now, we are chocolate makers, and not bakers, so to check the brownies readiness we used the old fashioned method of stabbing it with a sharp knife and making sure there was no runny mixture still on the blade.
  6. Once baked, let the brownie sit for 5 minutes and then turn out onto a wire cooling rack.

Slice and eat warm or save for later. Enjoy!
