Super decadent brownies that are completely plant-based! If you’re looking for a yummy, sweet treat, you NEED these vegan chocolate brownies in your life!

To me, brownies have to be fudgy, dense and gooey. Cakey brownies just don’t cut it for me. They have to be rich and chocolatey like these vegan chocolate brownies. You can get creative and make it your own by adding things like chopped nuts, dried fruit, chocolate chips or even drizzle nut butter on top of the batter before baking to create a swirl effect!  

Nestlé has recently launched a new vegan condensed milk alternative to their iconic Carnation range and I’m collaborating with them to show how it’s such a fun and versatile addition to vegan and gluten-free creations! It’s approved by the Vegan Society and is made from a blend of oat and rice flour, sugar and sunflower oil, so it’s completely plant-based. The oats used are gluten-free so it can also be used to create gluten-free bakes and treats. There are so many fun ways to incorporate it into recipes. The possibilities are endless really – think vegan ice cream, cheesecake, macaroons, cakes, caramel tray bakes and so much more!

I would have never thought of using condensed milk alternative to create a brownie recipe, but it’s such a genius idea! It really does make them so decadent and gives them the most amazing texture. I was so impressed with the way they turned out. They were thoroughly enjoyed by my family.

There is an amazing list of vegan recipes on the Carnation website that they’re adding to regularly (click here to browse their recipe ideas!). I’m still experimenting and can’t wait to play around with it more in the kitchen. Millionaire shortbread is next on the list!

It’s so amazing to see more brands creating vegan alternatives to their products. A decadent vegan caramel has been a challenge for me to create. I can never get the right texture and consistency, but with the help of Carnation vegan alternative to condensed milk I can make sweet caramel treats easily. It’s so convenient and such a time saver!

Vegan Chocolate Brownies

Serves – 12

Ingredients

200g Dark chocolate, chopped into small chunks
370g Carnation Vegan Condensed Milk Alternative
5 tbsp Sunflower oil
6 tbsp Vegan milk alternative (unsweetened)
200g Self-raising flour
3 tbsp Cocoa powder
120g Caster sugar

Method

Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C for fan ovens), Gas Mark 4.
Melt 150g of the chocolate in a microwave gently in short bursts, keeping the rest of the chocolate to fold into the mixture later.
Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
Mix the wet ingredients in a separate bowl, add the melted chocolate then pour everything into the flour mixture and mix until combined (it will be quite thick that’s fine!).
Mix in the remaining chopped chocolate.
Spoon the mixture into the prepared 22cm tin and bake for about 35 minutes or until the brownie is cooked in the centre (a knife should come out with a moist crumb but not wet batter).
Leave the brownies to cool in the tin for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.
Serve while still warm with some vegan ice cream.
