If you have a sweet tooth, you’ll know that when the sugar cravings hit, they hit hard. Of course, it can be easy to simply head to your snack draw and basically inhale the biscuits and the candy that you’ve hidden there, but that would be going against your resolution to cut down on sugar and try to live a more healthy lifestyle. What if we told you that you didn’t have to give up all of the gooey goodness that the brownie world has to offer, though? Yes, we didn’t think they existed, but you really can make sugar-free vegan brownies.
Just a few ingredients
As if the fact that these brownies were vegan and sugar-free wasn’t enough to make you fall down in shock, you’ll be equally as amazed to learn that these brownies are also made with just a few ingredients. Five, to be exact! All you’ll need to make this delicious sweet treat is 3 ripe bananas, 129 grams of rolled oats, 113 grams of salted almond butter, 30 grams of unsweetened cocoa powder, and 2 tablespoons of chopped walnuts – or alternative nuts of your choice. You can mix and match these brownies to your taste.
How to make them
So, you’ve got the ingredients, and you’re raring to go, but how to make these sugar-free vegan brownies come to life? To begin with, you’ll need to preheat your oven to 180-degrees-celsius and oil a pan to ensure that the mixture doesn’t stick. Then, simply add your oats into a mixer and mix until they become flour-like in texture. Once you’ve done this, add the almond butter, bananas, and cocoa powder. Mixing this together will allow you to form the batter, which you can then pour onto the pan and spread out evenly. Top with your nuts before placing in the oven for around 15 minutes – give or take. One of the best ways to know when your brownies are done is to stick a toothpick into the center. If the toothpick comes out clean, your brownies are ready. If the mixture comes off on the toothpick, you need to leave it in a little longer.
A healthy alternative
Once you’ve taken the brownies off the oven, the only thing you have left to do is to leave them to cool for a little while. Of course, we know that this can be difficult, but it’s worth it in the end. After all, it’s not every day you get to eat a healthy alternative to yummy, sugary brownies. These sugar-free, vegan brownies are super delicious, and you won’t feel guilty after eating them. This particular recipe includes 8 servings, and each serving will cost you just 99 calories.
