If you're looking for a decadent and chocolatey brownie recipe that is vegan and gluten-free friendly, look no further! This 30-Minute Vegan Fudge Brownies Recipe has your name on it! They taste so much better than boxed brownies and are surprisingly easy! Give them a try, I bet they'll be The Best Vegan Fudge Brownies you've ever had!
- Butter: To make these delicious vegan brownies, melt vegan (or regular butter if you're not vegan or dairy-free). If you don't have vegan butter, feel free to use coconut oil. You will need to add a pinch of salt to your brownie batter if you use coconut oil because it is slightly sweeter than butter.
- Milk: To make these fudgey and gooey brownies, you can use any full-fat plant-based milk or cream. I personally like a full-fat creamy oat milk. Coconut milk or almond milk will work as well. If you are not vegan or dairy free, heavy cream is another option.
- Sugar: Use regular organic cane sugar or coconut sugar to sweeten the brownies.
- Vanilla Extract: Vanilla gives these vegan brownies a delicious flavor.
- Baking Powder: Baking powder helps our brownies rise without the need for eggs.
- Cocoa Powder: Cocoa powder is how we achieve that rich chocolatey look and taste in these vegan fudge brownies.
- Flour: Use regular all purpose flour in this brownie recipe. If you would like to make gluten-free brownies, use gluten-free all purpose flour.
- Chocolate Chips: Use regular or vegan chocolate chips to make these brownies extra chocolatey.
How To Make Vegan Fudge Brownies
This vegan brownie recipe is simple and straightforward, requiring only one bowl! Here are the steps to the best brownies:
Step 1: Simply mix your melted vegan butter, non-dairy milk, sugar, vanilla, baking powder, and cocoa together.
Step 2: Once the mixture is smooth, add the flour and mix until a thick brownie batter is formed. Once the brownie batter has formed, fold in the vegan chocolate chips.
Step 3: Transfer the batter into a greased baking dish (I prefer metal dishes as they cook more evenly). You may also line your baking dish with parchment paper.
Step 4: Bake in the oven until desired doneness and enjoy the best vegan brownies with a side of ice cold oat milk!
Can you make brownies without eggs?
Yes! You can absolutely make brownies without eggs. This vegan and gluten-free friendly brownie recipe is so simple. There are no eggs, dairy, or even egg substitutes such as flax eggs needed.
