I just made these brownies for the first time today.
A group of us are going up island to a local fish fry so I thought I’d make
something to share with everyone on the ride up. I’m going to the fish fry for
the local experience not the food and these brownies might be my
I can’t take credit for developing this recipe; this is a very close variation of a creation by Dharma Mittra, my yoga teacher. It’s totally possible these are the best brownies I’ve ever tasted. Try them out and
let me know if you think so too!
Here’s what I did…
What you’ll need:
-1 ½ cups flour
-2/3 cup cacoa powder (unsweetened)
-3/4 tsp. baking powder
-1/4 tsp. sea salt
-1 cup non-dairy chocolate chips (I use “vegan chips” from Whole Foods- I restock these every time I go back to the states!)
-1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
-3/4 cup agave nectar (or maple syrup if you don’t have agave)
-3/4 cup applesauce (unsweetened/no sugar added)
-1/2 cup water
-2 tsp. ground flax seed
-2 tsp. vanilla extract
-Preheat oven to 350
-In a medium size bowl combine all the dry ingredients together, including the chips and nuts.
-In a separate medium bowl combine all the wet ingredients and stir to incorporate
-Slowing incorporate the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until well combined
-Pour mixture into a lightly oil greased 8x8 pan
-Bake for 30-40 minutes- the brownies will be a little moist but a knife/toothpick should still
come out clean from the center
Thank you Dharma!
