Happy Father’s Day! Hope all the daddies out there are having a fab day today and are getting spoilt by their lovely families.
Any occasion is a good opportunity for brownies in my house as it’s one of the only sweet that we all like. Yes, my kids are even fussy when it comes to sweets!
I am not into chocolate at all and I would always choose a fruity kind of pudding over a chocolate one, however when it comes to brownies, it’s a different story. I like the gooey texture coupled with bits of pecan nuts, I just cannot resist it.
I am new to vegan baking and I am loving this new adventure. I’ve had my tried and tested regular brownies recipe for a few years now, so when I decided to make a vegan version, it did take a a few attempts to get it right. 4 to be exact. First batch was too rich, the next two, too caky and finally my last attempt was just how I like my brownies. The final recipe is actually very similar to my first batch but just a little less rich. They still taste very decadent and chocolaty. I can’t pretend that they are healthy, but hey, nuts and dark chocolate are good for you, right?! I have used unrefined sugar and coconut oil, so they are a lot healthier still that most brownies you’ll find in your local coffee shop. Enjoy guilt free, it’s always nice to have a little treat.
As my kids do not like nuts (amongst many other things) and as they are the one eating most of the brownies, I only put the pecan nuts in on (small) half of the pan. You can replace pecan with walnuts, it’s equally good.
