I made over 20 different types of brownies but these are definitely The BEST vegan gluten-free Brownies, I’ve ever made.
I am a huge brownie lover. Of course, it is mainly chocolate and more chocolate. When I started Vanillacrunnch, I made my first brownies and called them raw orange infused brownies. Don’t judge the pictures, Iw as just starting my food blogger business. Then my brownie journey led me to low-fat sweet potato brownies. A winner I made over and over again.
What would chocolate be without a little coffee flavor? Say hello to the 2016 one bowl espresso brownies. In 2017 I made a brownie combined with fudge and called it a fudgy vegan double chocolate brownie. Jap very creative, I know.
Then last christmas, I’ve experimented with the fusion of gingerbread and brownies. My new favorite special brownie from then on was the Gingerbread Brownie with a luscious dark chocolate ganache
Now, we have 2019 and I am proudly presenting you the best vegan gluten-free brownies. I mean those are the best for me and my personal taste. I like brownies fudgy and sticky and chocolatey
The perfect brownie
Here are two main tips on how I achieved this consistency.
- First, I used Aquafaba. This somehow reacts like eggwhites and give the brownie the nice crust.
- Second, I put the brownies on the balcony (in winter) or in the fridge once they are cooled down a little from the oven. This hardens the coconut oil immediately and the brownie gets very sticky and loses the fluff (of course if you like a warm fluffy brownie, go for it and store them in an air-tight container in the house.
If you have time I recommend making these vegan gluten-free Brownies while you are reading this. Otherwise (you better come up with a good excuse), you can save the pictures below to your Pinterest Board and find the recipe later.
