This is a great basic recipe for a vegan brownie bite. I love these dairy free brownie bites because they're small, and can satisfy my chocolate cravings without pushing my calorie intake over the edge. I leave a few out, then freeze the rest. Pull one from the freezer and microwave it on high for about 20 seconds (microwave times and temps vary), and you have yourself a fantastic little treat. While it's still hot, top it off with your favorite dairy free ice cream and some fresh cut strawberries for a vegan brownie sundae!
(NOTE: These will bake in a 9 x 13 baking pan for 25-30 minutes)
Vegan (and dairy free) Brownie Bites
makes 48 brownie bites
2 cups whole wheat flour (white flour works too)
2 cups sugar
¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup water
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup dairy free mini chocolate chips
Preheat your oven to 350°F. Grease or spray a mini, 24 cup muffin tin (two if you have them).
In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Pour in water, applesauce, and vanilla. Mix until well blended, then gently fold in your chocolate chips. Divide batter evenly among your muffin tins, and bake for 15-20 minutes. Bake less for a fudgey brownie, and more for a cake-like brownie.
