Hello friends, today let’s make a very easy recipe for this Vegan Brownie, baked in a skillet. These vegan brownies are also paleo, which means they are refined sugar free and gluten free.
And the best news is, this recipe is super versatile, which means you can adapt it infinitely, to cater to your preferences.
For example, when it comes to the nut butter, feel free to add any butters you’d like. I’ve made this recipe both with peanut and almond butter, and I am sure it would work fine with cashew, or even sun butter.
Use your favorite milk to make this Vegan Brownie recipe. I’ve used almond because that’s what I always have at home. You can use any dairy-free milk you love. And yes, even regular dairy milk would also work.
The recipe calls for 1/3 cup of aquafaba, but you can substitute for 2 flax eggs: mix two tablespoons of flax meal with 4 tablespoons of warm water, and let it thicken for a few minutes.
And you can also use regular egg if you wish. For this recipe, you’ll need about 2 medium eggs, or an amount that equals to 1/3 cup.
I am using coconut sugar, but feel free to use any other type of granulated sweetener, such as white sugar, brown sugar, etc.
The method is the easiest thing in the world! Simply mix the ingredients together. It helps to melt the nut butter lightly in the microwave, so it incorporates easily with the other ingredients.
And it also helps to add all the liquid ingredients first, to then incorporate the dry ingredients. However, even if you just put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix them together, it should work fine.
After mixing the ingredients, spread them on the bottom of a greased 8″ skillet or pan, and bake.
Baking time should be about 40 minutes. Start checking at around 30 minutes.
To know when the brownie is baked, you should touch the top of the brownies, and it should feel “set”. If it feels like the batter in the center is liquidy, the brownie needs to bake longer.
And when I posted these brownies on my instagram stories, when I was testing the recipe, I had a lot of questions about the skillet I am using. Click the image below to see the pan on Amazon.
