Easy vegan brownies with walnuts and a hint of lemon, the much-loved brownie taste, but dairy and egg free. A super easy recipe made from scratch.Awesome!
I have always tried to share with you only easy homemade recipes that anyone can do. But there is easy, and easy vegan brownies.
Literally, the easiest dessert you could possibly come up with!
And guess what, it does taste like the real deal. Yeah, it might not have that richness of the buttery brownies, that by the way I absolutely love.
Instead, the vegan brownies have a much lighter texture, but the same fantastic flavour.
And this recipe will put a big smile on your face. It’s super douper simple, uses just a very few ingredients and it tastes like nothing else in the world.
You won’t even tell it’s absolutely egg and dairy free.
How do you make easy vegan brownies?
It’s an easy peasy job:
- in a bowl, add the flour, sugar, baking powder, a pinch of salt
- combine the soy milk with oil, add the grated lemon zest (optional)
- throw in chopped walnuts and give it a good stir
- grease and flour either a round or square baking tin and bake the brownies at 180 degrees C (375 F) for about 20-25 minutes
Even people who can swear they can’t live without eggs and dairy will be impressed with these beauties.
No complicated icing, no fancy cream, but still a delish. Who’s in for a few slices?
Can I replace the soy milk with coconut milk?
Absolutely! The soy milk can be replaced with any plant-based milk: coconut, almond, rice, or a combination of any of these.
The amount of sugar can be adjusted depending on how sweet you like it, some plant-based milk might be naturally sweeter than others.
Can I add any other nuts?
Adding walnuts gives a bit of crunch, but they can be omitted if you don’t happen to have any, it’s not crucial.
Or they can be replaced with pecans, unsalted peanuts, cashew nuts, brasil nuts, etc.
