Healthy (vegan & gluten-free) Cookies for the Holidays

Apparently I have too much time on my hands (oops, busted a button laughing at that one), because I’ve been baking cookies, of one form or another, for two weeks straight. Whee!

My friends and family are loving my new cookie-oriented work ethic.

The holidays just aren’t the holidays without some baking frenzy. Blame it all on my wonderful mom, who made countless cookies, fudge, and feasts for Christmas and Boxing Day every advent. And…she did it all by hand. That’s right; she used no mixer my friends, but rather a wooden spoon (for crying out loud), for creaming pounds and pounds of butter. And yes, she is awesome.

If you are wondering if I have abandoned all notions of health for the love of cookies, fear not! I have, instead, combined the two: cookie madness + healthy ingredients. I’ve made the two components equal total deliciousness! Case in point, my fudgy, oat and almond brownies!

How to Make Vegan Grain-Free Brownies

Talk about a super-simple brownie recipe!

All that you need is a bowl and a mixing spoon. Begin by combining the nut butter (use any variety that you like, or a seed butter. I usually use natural peanut butter or almond butter), hot water, coconut sugar (or brown sugar), flaxseed meal and vanilla until blended. Using hot water makes it easier to liquify the nut butter (especially if the latter is very cold).

Let the mixture cool for about 5 minutes. The flaxseed meal will have a time to gel during this period.Next, stir in the coconut flour, baking soda, and (optional) chocolate chips. I do not add extra salt (the nut butter I use is salted). If your nut butter is unsalted, consider adding 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon salt.

Bake in a Loaf Pan

I like to bake these brownie in a loaf pan in order to yield a slightly thicker brownie. If you only have a square pan, use it instead, and reduce the baking time by 5 to 6 minutes.

Chill the Brownies Before Cutting

In order to cut the brownies into clean, even squares, cool completley and then chill until cold. These brownies have a fudgy texture, so this is my preferred way to cut them.

But if you cannot wait, there is nothing wrong with messy squares (or blobs, scooped from the pan to a bowl or cup; done that!), especially while the brownies are still warm. In fact, there is no wrong way to eat these brownies.

Happy baking!

  3. Stir in the cocoa powder, coconut flour, baking soda and (optional) chocolate chips until blended. Spread batter evenly in prepared pan.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 24 to 28 minutes until just set at edges (do not overbake; brownies may still look slightly underdone). Cool completley in pan on a wire rack.
  5. For easy cutting into neat squares, refrigerate the cooled brownies until cold. Remove from pan and cut into squares with a large sharp knife.

These are fabulous! I made these today, but replaced the sugar with blended dates. I doubled the recipe so that I could fill a bigger pan. They are semi-sweet, fudgy, and something I think could be eaten for breakfast or dessert :) They hit the chocolate craving, and are definitely guilt free compared to a regular brownie. I will make these again for sure! Thanks for sharing this recipe!

HI! I messed up lol I misread the 1/4 teaspoon baking soda and instead... I added 1/4 cup! Of baking soda... which I only briefly thought to myself "Hmm, is that too much baking soda?" Only when I was licking the spoon did I notice a salty flavor… then I re-read the recipe and realized what I had done! I still put it in the oven and I am now wondering if it will be edible or not??? Wish me luck! Marina
