  • Summary

    These are seriously some of the best brownies I have ever had. They embody everything a brownie should have, which is dense, fudgy, chewy and very chocolatey characteristics. Make these for your family and friends and then tell them they are vegan and gluten-free and oil-free. They won't believe you!

    Ingredients

    • 1 cup raw, unsalted sunflower kernels (140 g)
    • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (37 g)
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
    • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup (120 mL)
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons water
    • 3 tablespoons Oriya Organics Superfood Protein Medley (18 g, see Notes below for subs)
    • 2 tablespoons oat flour (16 g, or sub with 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour if you can't tolerate oats)
    • 1/4 heaping cup dairy-free chocolate chips (60 g)
    • NOTE: You can make these without protein powder! See subs below under NOTES. This makes a small amount (in a loaf pan), so if you want a larger batch, double the recipe and use an 8x8 pan. I also tested a batch using a 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, leaving out the oat flour & protein powder and they were delicious as well, although the texture was slightly more cakey/puffy because of it. I preferred the more dense/fudgy texture using the protein powder and oat flour, but both are delicious.I can only guarantee results of this recipe based on how it's written with the ingredients I used and the subs I tested. If you try other powders or ingredients, I can't vouch for what the result will be unfortunately.
