Recipe: Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free Vegan Brownies
Inspired by “The Spunky Coconut” for Vegan, Egg-Free, Grain-Free Brownies:

1/2 cup organic applesauce (make sure there is no added sugar!)
2 Tbs. water
1/4 tsp. guar gum or xanthan gum
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 cup of nut butter (I use 1/2 cup cashew butter: + 1/2 cup almond butter:
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup raw cacao powder: or cocoa powder:
3 pkts. SweetLeaf Stevia

1. Stir the applesauce, water, and guar gum together in a bowl with a whisk for a minute or two.
2. Now add the rest of ingredients to the bowl and mix until well combined.
3. Grease a loaf pan with some oil, I use coconut oil. Also I chose a loaf pan for this because it’s a smaller batch and it gets too thin and flat if I use a square baking pan. So a loaf pan gives it those nice crispier/crunchier edge pieces and gooey middle pieces.
4. Now scoop the batter into the pan and smooth it around with a spoon.
5. Bake for 25-28 minutes at 350 degrees.
Let it cool for 5-10 minutes and then you can slice it up and serve it with your milk of choice…trust me you’ll want something to drink as these brownies are pretty rich.
Now enjoy (and try not to eat the whole pan!). I store my leftovers in a container in the fridge and eat it from there so I can make them last for several days.

  22. Daniel West says:

    You know, you could have just weighed out the ingredients. 😉 I don't know why Americans and others use measuring cups with such discipline. Get your scales out and weight your pb!

  23. Shipper says:

    What else besides stevia can I use? I cannot do coconut sugar, either, nor reg sugar, of course. Can I use maple syrup, brown rice syrup, date paste or agave?
