Ooey Gooey Brownies {vegan} – peace. love. quinoa

Feb 12

One of the best things EVER happened to me this week:

 a Vegetarian Potluck during a Yoga Retreat

Valentines Day is around the corner, which inspired me to make & take a sweet treat.

I searched Pinterest and found this amazing recipe.

These brownies are the BEST I’ve ever had.

They’ll be the best you’ve ever had. (trust me)

I’m in looove.


Ooey Gooey Brownies {vegan}

Author: peace. love. quinoa


  • Earth Balance Butter substitute
  • 1¼ cups applesauce (make your own?)
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 mashed banana
  • 1⅓ cup whole wheat flour (you can use brown rice flour to make this recipe GF)
  • 2 cups vegan chocolate chips
  • 2 cups sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease a 13x9x2 inch pan with the Earth Balance.
  3. In a large bowl, combine all of the remaining ingredients and stir. Then pour the mixture into the greased pan.
  4. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Be sure to insert the toothpick in a few different areas. (Be aware that the chocolate chips may prevent you from getting a good read on whether or not the brownies are done.)
