Vegan Cosmic Brownies

If you were a little Debbie's cosmic brownie fan growing up, you have to try these vegan cosmic brownies! They are incredible. The crazy part, is that they get even more fudgy after leaving them in the fridge for a few hours. The two ingredient chocolate ganache topping takes them over the top. All your childhood dreams come true, with simpler, better-for-you ingredients!

Ingredients
  

Brownies

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup protein powder *See Notes
  • 1/3 cup + 1 tbsp cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar or monk fruit
  • 4 tbsp maple syrup 
  • 1/4 cup almond butter **See Notes
  • 1/4 cup mashed avocado
  • 2 tbsp ground flax seed ***See Notes
  • 2/3 cups plant milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

Chocolate Ganache

  • 1/2 cup full-fat canned coconut milk *Solid part from the top
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • pinch sea salt

Instructions
 

Brownies

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Add all of the wet ingredients, including the sugar, to a food processor, blending until super smooth and no avocado chunks remain.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and blend until a uniform dough forms.
  • Line an 8x8 pan with parchment paper or grease well. Spread the batter into the pan and bake for 20-24 minutes. Don't overtake.
  • Pop them in the fridge to cool for a bit (they actually become more fudgy in the fridge!)

Ganache

  • Add the coconut milk and chocolate to a microwave safe bowl. Heat in 20 second increments stirring well between each one, until the chocolate is completely melted and a thick ganache-like texture.
  • Spread over the cooled brownies and top with sprinkles.
  • Place in the fridge for a bit to allow it to firm up, before cutting into bars.
  • Store in an air-tight container in the fridge.

Notes

*You can sub 1/2 cup almond flour for the protein powder.
**You can sub any nut or seed butter for the almond butter.
***The ground flax can possibly be left out. I haven't tried leaving it out, but can't see it ruining the recipe!
