Decadent Peanut Butter Brownies

Decadent Peanut Butter Brownies

Vegan & Made without Flour = Gluten Free Gorgeousness



  1. 120g all natural peanut butter
  2. 60ml agave nectar
  3. 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  4. 120g all natural unsweetened applesauce, or 2 large bananas; mashed
  5. 70g unsweetened cacao powder
  6. 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  7. 1/8 teaspoon salt, if desired
  8. 70g grated chocolate, plus 2 tablespoons for sprinkling on top


  1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees for fan oven or gas mark 4. Spray 8x8 inch cake tin with non-stick cooking spray or line the tin with some non-dairy spread.
  2. In a large bowl or food processor, cream together the peanut butter, agave, vanilla and applesauce until smooth. Add the cacao powder, baking soda, and salt; mix again until smooth.
  3. Gently fold chocolate into the batter. Pour the batter into your prepared cake tin and smooth the top down. I usually spray my spatula with cooking spray to help spread it out evenly. Sprinkle remaining 2 tablespoons of chocolate over the top.
  4. Bake for 18-22 minutes or until top is just set. Take care not to overcook these beauties; you want them to have a fudgy consistency! Plus they are vegan so you don't need to worry about them cooking all the way through.
  5. Cool on wire rack for as long as you can without scoffing the lot. Cut into delicious squares and serve!
