Super easy gluten-free vegan brownie to go!

Vegan brownie formula with banana flour and applesauce

Have you tried my Sensational, sugar-free, gluten-free vegan brownie recipe with chickpeas and prunes? I have posted it a few weeks ago for you.

Today’s recipe is for those who feel OK to add a touch of coconut sugar to their home-made bakings. Take it!

This brownie formula with banana flour and applesauce is worth ten points: fluffy, brown, most reminiscent of the original brownie, although there is a slightly different and less sweet taste.


There are a few things which I have changed/adjusted in the recipe if comparing with the original recipe by Natalie Grain-free banana flour chocolate chip cake, March 27, 2017

Applesauce – I have replaced canned applesauce with home-made applesauce from apples. Benefits? Easy to make, no need to search for unsweetened applesauce in a store, fresh, no preservatives or other additives which are usual in any canned products

Water bath for melting chocolate and cashew butter – these two ingredients when melted before adding into a dry mixture are easier to combine and give additional fluffiness to the texture

Fan mode for baking – for short baking (up to 30 min as in this recipe) I use fan mode, not a conventional mode, and therefore reduce the temperature by 20 °C / 70 °F. Fan (convection) mode allows hot air to circulate around the oven. Therefore, using fan mode, the outside of brownie bakes faster and browns more evenly, leaving the interior still juicy
