Decadent Chocolate Brownies - vegan, gluten-free, allergen-free -

My kids always ask me what my favorite foods are. When it comes to treats, brownies top the list for me. I have brownie recipes in every book I write, because you can never have enough brownie options in my opinion. 

These brownies are probably my favorites, though. I make them again and again, and I always get rave reviews. The melted chocolate chips really give a pure chocolate flavor to these very moist brownies.

It's a breeze to cut these soft, extra-rich brownies if you refrigerate them first.

Decadent Chocolate Brownies (vegan, gluten-free, refined sugar free, food allergy friendly)

Makes 12 Brownies

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup neutral tasting oil (canola, safflower, or sunflower)
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 cups chocolate chips, divided (I like Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cups oat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup apple sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • non-stick cooking spray

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Spray an 8- or 9-inch square pan.
  2. Combine sugar, oil, and water in a microwave safe bowl or small saucepan. If using a microwave, heat on high for 1 minute. If using a saucepan, heat over medium heat, stirring until hot, but not boiling (about 2 minutes). Stir half of the chocolate chips and the vanilla into the sugar mixture until the chips are melted. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the flour ,baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  4. Combine apple sauce and baking powder. Add the apple sauce mixture to the chocolate. Stir to combine.
  5. Add the flour mixture, one half at a time. Add the remaining chocolate chips. Spread in prepared pan.
  6. Bake for 30-35 minutes. Cool completely before cutting.
