Coconut Chocolate Brownies

Your Vegan and Gluten-Free Brownies

Like almost every day I was, again craving something super chocolatey but I also wanted to create something different this time. That’s when the idea for these delicious and easy coconut chocolate brownies was born! I bought the coconut flour a couple of days ago at the supermarket because I wanted to bake something with this kind of flour for so long and was really curious how that’ll turn out.

Gluten-Free and Vegan

The recipe for these vegan coconut chocolate brownies is gluten-free because I used coconut flour as the main ingredient and some soy flour to replace the eggs. This recipe is vegan too, there is no dairy product in these delicious bites. You have to take vegan chocolate for the topping, or you can leave it out if you don’t like it too chocolatey. I usually take baking chocolate, they are mostly vegan. You can also buy some vegan chocolate chips, but the cheaper version is definitely the baking chocolate.

Healthy and so easy

I made this a healthy treat, because why should we eat some heavy and fatty desserts when there are delicious healthy versions? Ever since I started baking healthy treats I found it really difficult to bake anything unhealthy. I simply can’t resist, I always turn it into a healthier version. That’s why you can enjoy more than one piece of these coconut chocolate brownies! I reduced the oil, as coconut flour contains enough fats and also went easy on the sugar. You can add enough sweetness with the chocolate chips on top.

About the coconut flour

Coconut flour is just ground dried coconut, which is gluten-free and low carb too! It is really high in fiber and makes the brownies so filling you won’t feel the urge to eat the whole batch all by yourself 🙂 Also, coconut flour is super high in protein – make these brownies your afterworkout treat (or pre-workout if you cannot resist).

      Thank you! Coconut flour is a bit different than other flours. It soaks up the liquid like a sponge and therefore lots of liquid is required when baking with it. That’s why it might look like it’s too much in this recipe. I was also quite surprised when I was baking with coconut flour as it really works differently than all the others.
