You know those days where you just want to eat everything in sight? I had quite a few of those after Christmas when I was trying to actively stop eating everything in sight as I had for about two straight weeks.
The good news is that brownies are a thing. The better news is that if, like me, you have very little baking ingredients in the house and/or you have the baking skills of a moose (also me), 3 ingredient vegan brownies are a thing. Are you ready for the best news yet? They’re 3 pretty healthy ingredients, as far as chocolate brownies go.
If you’re after rich, fudgy brownies that are exactly as indulgent as you’d want a brownie to be, then look no further.
Flourless healthy brownies?
I originally stumbled upon this recipe on thebigmansworld.com after falling down the Pinterest rabbit hole. Healthy brownies? Simple 3 ingredient vegan brownies? They had me at hello.
What Arman says in his post about them being ugly little buggers couldn’t be any more true. He’s right, there is no way to make a flourless brownie attractive. They sort of balloon up in the oven and then shrink back to size once they’re out and the result is a sort of shrivelled little brownie. But he did manage to make them damn tasty, and for that I can only thank him.
Arman’s original recipe calls for a blender if you don’t like banana bits but h e l l o they’re delicious – so I just mash it in a bowl and throw it together.
3 Ingredient Vegan Brownies
Better yet is that they make a great base for a more nutritious snack, if that’s what you’re looking for. Alright, so adding to them takes away from being 3 ingredient, but I have found that if you add a scoop of protein powder or some flax seed/chia seed to the mix you can still make a damn good brownie with minimal effort and little more than an extra tablespoon of almond/dairy free milk of your choosing.
Are you sold yet? I’m off to make another batch (just kidding, everything in moderation, amiright?).
