This easy vegan carrot brownies recipe is made healthier by adding whole grain flour, less canola oil and adding applesauce. Using natural brown sugar and cocoa powder these carrot brownies are moist, ooey and gooey.
Prepare the baking pan. Either grease your baking pan or put a parchment paper having extended on either two sides to easily lift the brownies after baking. For these carrot brownies, I use a 5×7 in glassware.
Prepare carrot, about a medium size peel ski, wash and dry then grate. Squeeze excess water from the carrot but not too much you still want that extra moisture to be added to your batter.
In a medium bowl sift dry ingredients. All-purpose flour, whole grain flour, and cocoa powder then add baking powder and salt. Mix to combine.
In a large bowl, pour sugar, add vanilla, dairy-free milk, grated carrots, applesauce, and oil. Mix until well combined.
Pour the dry mixture with the liquid mixture slowly until everything is well combined. Try no to over-mix the batter.
You may add chocolate chips. (optional)
Add little grated carrots on top before baking. (optional)
Transfer to your baking pan and bake for about 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick is inserted in the center and comes out clean.
Remove from the oven after baking and let it cool first for about 20 minutes.
Serve and enjoy.
Transfer leftovers in an airtight container. You can keep it in the fridge to last longer.
You can also use white or sugar of your choice, except for powdered sugar.
If you want this totally oil-free use ½ cup of applesauce. Using vegan butter is also possible with the same measurement.
Instead of dairy-free milk, you can also use 1 cup of water.
If you want it to have an extra rich chocolatey taste add 2 tbsp of coffee granules.
