Best Vegan Brownies

March 18th, 2021

In this post I’m sharing my recipe for the best vegan brownies. The secret ingredients include bananas and avocado!

First, ensure that you have all of the necessary ingredients. Some of the ingredients can be substituted based on personal preference (e.g., almond milk for a different plant-based milk or whole wheat flour for another type of flour). I also used frozen ripe banana and avocado chunks and defrosted them prior to using in this recipe.

Best Vegan Brownies


1 1/2 Medium Bananas

1/2 Avocado

1/2 Cup Rolled Oats

1/4 Cup Cocoa Powder

1/4 Cup Maple Syrup

1/2 Tsp Baking Soda

1/2 Cup Whole Wheat Flour

1/2 Cup Almond Milk

3 Large Vegan Dark Chocolate Squares

1/4 Cup Chopped Walnuts

Pinch of Sea Salt

Makes 12 Small Brownies

Next, follow the directions as listed. This recipe for the best vegan brownies is very straightforward, requires little time and makes very few dishes to clean up afterwards. I used just one bowl for all of the ingredients!

Best Vegan Brownies


Preheat oven to 325 F.

Grease or line a medium sized muffin tin.

Add the bananas and avocado to a large bowl and mash until there are no lumps.

Add the oats, cocoa powder, maple syrup, and baking soda, and stir until combined.

Add the flour and almond milk and mix until the batter is well incorporated.

Chop up the dark chocolate squares into chocolate chip sized pieces and add to the batter, as well as, the chopped walnuts and sea salt.

Evenly spoonful batter in muffin tin.

Bake for approximately 15 minutes.

Notes: Cooking time is subject to oven temperature and brownie size

Once they have cooled in the pan for a couple of minutes, I run a knife along the edges (if you aren’t using a cupcake/muffin liner), remove from the pan and let them cool completely on a wire rack.

This recipe for the best vegan brownies is rich in flavour and not overly sweet. The bananas and avocado also provide numerous health benefits (a hit of potassium) and natural sweetness.
