I’ve been wanting to make a copycat version of these brownies for so long and I knew I wanted them to be just perfect. This brownie is so nostalgic for so many people so I knew I needed to deliver. I think you’ll love these and also love how simple they are!
Nut free and Vegan Brownies
These brownies are nut free things to the SunButter I used and no flours are needed in the brownies themselves. The frosting is just chocolate chips and coconut milk keeping that part nut free as well. The chocolate gems are dairy free and nut free, but you can use whatever ones you like or even just some natural sprinkles. I didn’t give an exact measurement for the candies- just add what feels right!
They are vegan since no eggs are used and no dairy products are used in either the brownie or frosting.
These brownies are super easy to make, all the ingredients are mixed in one bowl and they’re in the oven in less than 10 minutes. The frosting is just 2 ingredients and couldn’t be easier. These are great to whip up any time, but also are great made ahead and kept in the fridge.
Even with SunButter being the main ingredient these don’t have an overly SunButter flavor. Not that that would be a bad thing, but I wanted them to taste like the original and they definitely do. They taste like a rich, chocolate brownie that is in no way cakey. Perfect!
Look at this sweet cutting board that my boyfriend made for me! 🙂 It was a Christmas gift and I love that he put so much time and thought into it! Okay back to the brownies.
