I don’t talk about it as much here on the ol’ blog anymore, but food, cooking and baking are big passions of mine. Being vegan, I’m always on the look out for great recipes and every now and then, I try my hand at creating a recipe too. Most recently, it’s been baking that I’ve been re-visiting. We were recently contacted to ask if we’d like to create a recipe using some of Aldi’s products so of course I said yes! Today I’m going to be sharing my gooey vegan avocado brownie recipe with you all, that I promise the whole family will love!
Before this week, I couldn’t tell you when the last time I made a brownie was! I’m not sure why and now that I’ve mastered this super simple but delicious recipe, I’m sure I’ll be making them a lot more frequently! So if you’re looking for an easy, vegan friendly brownie recipe, you’ve in the right place!
Ingredients (all available from Aldi)
Half a ripe avocado [full price: 79p serving price: 39.5p]
275ml of unsweetened soya milk(or unsweetened almond milk) [full price: 59p serving price: ]
200g of demerara sugar [full price: 69p serving price: 14p ]
140g of oats [full price: 75p serving price: 11p ]
65g of cacao powder [full price: £1.89 serving price: £1.20 ]
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda [full price: 65p serving price: 1p ]
pinch of salt
50g of dark choc chips [full price: 49p serving price: 25p ]
4 or 5 “Cookies N Cream” biscuits [full price: 35p serving price: 12p] (and a few more to nibble on whilst you’re baking!)
Aldi have such a vast range of baking products available in their stores. I don’t think I’ve ever been in and not come out with the ingredients I needed! If you wanted to make this recipe a little healthier, you can swap out the chocolate chips for cacao nibs(£1.89), which you can find right by the cacao powder in store, and leave out the biscuits on top, but they 100% make them taste even more delicious!
- Pre heat your oven to 175 degrees Celsius (350 degrees Fahrenheit)
- Using a blender(we use a NutriBullet) blend your oats until they form a flour like consistency(20ish seconds). This is your oat flour.
- Pour your oat flour into a bowl and add the cacao powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt and mix together until combined.
- In your now empty blender, add your avocado, soya milk and sugar and blend until smooth.
- Slowly add your wet ingredients to your dry before folding in your chocolate chips.
- Line a small baking tray with grease proof paper(shiny side up)
- Pour your mixture into the baking tray.
- Break your cookies and cream biscuits into three or four pieces each and place on top of your mixture, slightly pushing them down so they are just encased into the mixture.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until the top is crispy but the inside reminds soft.
- Once removing from the oven, allow to cool for at least 20 minutes before cutting and serving.
And there we have it! Your super gooey, chocolatey brownies that everyone can enjoy! Being a vegan recipe, this will also be great for anyone needing to hit their brownie craving that has an intolerance such as cows milk or eggs! You’d never even know they had avocado in either! Each batch makes 12 good sized pieces and the entire batch only costs £2.82, making a single slice only 24p! Now that’s a real bargain.
I’d love it if you tried out this recipe and let me know what you think? Remember to tag me in your social media posts @lovemaisieblog !
