Easy Vegan Brownies

I am so excited about this recipe, you guys!

I’ve made chocolate avocado brownies before but, they contained egg. The avocado was a replacement for oil in that recipe. Today’s brownie recipe, however, calls for no eggs. This makes them 100% vegan.

These easy vegan brownies are not fudgy like most of my brownie recipes. Instead, they are moist and cakey. But they are full of chocolate flavor and amazingly delicious.

My husband knocked back several in one sitting. He said they were the best brownies he’s ever had.

He had no idea the brownies lacked eggs and butter. And he was shocked to learn avocado was an ingredient.

Even I didn’t know eating vegan could taste so delicious.

Another great thing about today’s brownies is you need just one bowl to make them. Clean up is a breeze. Mix all the ingredients together in one bowl, transfer to a pan and bake.

You’re looking at maybe ten minutes of prep time and only twenty minutes of cook time. That means you can whip up a batch of these easy brownies in no time at all.

The smashed avocado acts as an egg for binding. And as long as you puree the avocado well, you won’t be able to taste it in the brownies.

If you don’t follow a vegan diet, you’ll still want to get on board with these brownies. They are crazy good and actually better for you.

Everyone will be surprised at the intense chocolate taste and won’t even believe the brownies are vegan.

If you make this simple one bowl brownie recipe, it will definitely be a hit with anyone who tries it.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line an 8-inch square pan with aluminum foil and mist lightly with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the avocado and coconut oil together until smooth. Whisk in the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking soda, salt, and coconut milk until well combined.
  3. Spread the batter evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan and bake for 15-20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  4. Cool brownies completely in the pan on a wire rack. Cut into squares and serve. The brownies will stay fresh for up to 3 days stored in an airtight container at room temperature.

Recipe Notes

If you want less of a cake-like brownie, try underbaking them slightly. This will make the brownies fudgy in texture.

    Ok now I’m craving brownies like crazy! These look SO good, Jen! I’ve always wanted to make a dessert with avocado, so I’m loving this vegan treat. And I love how thick these are, too. Definitely my kind of brownie!

  • mira

    These look so delicious! I’m curious to try them, love that they are vegan! I just tried something similar with chickpeas, but I’m sure avocado will be great, too! Pinning

  • marcie

    So I’ve never baked with avocado before….I know it has to be good but I’ve been chicken! haha These brownies are enough to make me suck it up and do it — they look incredible, Jen! Definitely trying these. 🙂

  • Cheyanne @ No Spoon Necessary

    I didn’t know eating vegan looked this delicious, girlfriend!! These brownies look crazy good! Loving all the ingredients you used to keep these vegan! And I really love that these chocolaty beauties are cake-like and moist. I could eat the whole dang pan for sure! Cheers, Jen!

  • Liz @ Teta Lizza's Kitchen

    You’ve convinced me! I cannot wait to give these a try for so many reasons! It’s so nice to have a tasty option to satisfy different preferences but vegan or non-vegan, I have a feeling these will be a hit with anyone! And one bowl? You sure know the way to my heart 😉 Great post! I will let you know once I try them. Thanks Jen!

  • Rach

    Wow.. ..these look amazing can’t wait to try them out. If I was to not have the sugar in it, what are my options for sugar free? Would raisins or banana work?

  • Jessica

    Do you think almond milk would work in place of the coconut milk? It’s a snow day and these would be fun to make with the kiddies!

  • Sasha

    Is this supposed to be really thick and dough like after you have mixed all the ingredients together? Mine wasn’t a smooth consistency and I had to really spread it in the pan with some arm strength. It is baking now so I’m a little nervous as to how it will turn out 😩

  • Alexandra

    These weren’t bad at all! I didn’t have coconut sugar on me so instead I used organic cane sugar. I also added some water and a little more avocado because my batter ended up being really thick. At first I was nervous for the results, but they came out pretty good! Because of my tweak, they took a lot longer to cook and even when I finally took them out of the oven they were extremely rich and fudgy. But I’m not complaining! Pretty good recipe for not-too-bad-for-you brownies. I’d make them again.

  • Monica

    Hi I made vegan brownies for my class we had a nutrition day everyone loved them they were demolished. This recipe is a keeper. Love the simplicity of the recipe.

  • Virginie

    Hi Jen!
    I am Virginie, from belgium… full Time four boy’s mom and trying to “veganize” them the better i can!
    Not easy to make males Forget about meat, fat and donutS!
    But i hang on and dont let anything go..

    (Hope my english is not too bad to understand!)

    So, i have avocados (like all year in my kitchen because i love them, but they (kids AND huby) hate it.. ^^
    I am juste waiting for the Time They go out for a walk, and the baby is asleep and i Will give your brownies a try..
    So They dont See what is inside and They will probably love it 10x more then if i introduce it as: avocado brownies..
    Ha ha ha (i am evil)

    Will let you know if They ate it or not!

  • Virginie

    A BIG BIG thank you!!!

    Perfection if brownies… i just changed one thing, because i make my own milk (coco, spelt, nuts or almond) i switched half of the flour by the coconut okara of the morning milk…

    Perfection is the word!!!!!

    And the kids ate it without noticing anything

  • Lynsie

    So this looked so GOOD and easy… i had to make them right away. And with the simple ingredient i had everything on hand. The turned out amazing!!!! And my family love them as well! I will be making these again!

  • Tara

    This is such a great recipe! I recently tried them again using applesauce in place of the avocado since that is what I had on hand.
    I was wondering if I would be able to make this recipe for layered brownies. Do you think a thin layer of spiced pumpkin puree would bake in between the two layers? Or a sweetened tahini layer? I have never made layered brownies before so I was wondering if you would be able to give me some feedback.
    Thanks,
    Tara

    • Jen Sobjack

      Hi Tara! I’m so glad you like the recipe. I haven’t tried layering these brownies so I can’t say for sure how it would work. I fear they may not bake up properly because the texture is softer than a traditional brownie.
