Decadent Vegan Chocolate Chip and Pecan Brownies

Decadent Vegan Chocolate Chip and Pecan Brownies

These are the perfect decadent and chewy brownies. Whole chocolate chips and chopped pecans add texture to this dessert's dense base. When baked, they attain the perfect balance between a slightly crispy and chewy outer layer with a fudgy interior. These are amazing on their own, but even more so when served with a scoop of vanilla vegan ice cream and a dollop of coconut whipped cream.

Ingredients

  • 9 tablespoons vegan butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup, 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 ripe banana
  • A handful of vegan chocolate chips
  • A handful of pecans

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F.
  2. In a medium heat-safe mixing bowl, add the butter, sugars, cocoa powder, and salt.
  3. Cover the bottom of a small saucepan with water and bring to a gentle simmer.
  4. Place the bowl on top of a pan to make a double boiler. You want to make sure the bowl does not touch the water too much.
  5. Allow the butter to melt for 5 or so minutes, stirring the contents until the butter is melted and the texture is very gritty.
  6. Remove from heat and add the vanilla, flour, and banana.
  7. Stir until the mixture is smooth. You may still have visible banana pieces, and that is okay.
  8. Add in the chocolate chips and pecans.
  9. Pour into a greased/oiled 8×8-inch baking pan and set it on the bottom rack of the oven.
  10. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a knife/toothpick comes out mostly clean in the middle.

Vegan Homemade Chocolate

Melt in your mouth vegan homemade chocolate! Made without artificial ingredients or preservatives, this wholesome treat is ideal for the health nuts and is also kid friendly. 

I’m a big chocolate fan! And I could eat pounds of it at the time; trust me, there have been days when I actually ate that much due to my depression and anxiety attacks. Chocolate seemed the only successful way to keep those demons under control. 

But I know so much chocolate is not good for my health on a long term, especially since store bought chocolate is made with so many preservatives aka chemicals. So I’ve come to the point where I indulge but only once in a while. I’m an adult, I can control myself.

But that’s not the case in kids. When they like stuff they have to get it immediately and they get addicted to it, sugar in particular, in a snap. That’s why I try and teach my daughter balance and if she must have sweets, they’d better be healthy, preferably something I made. 

Certainly your child loves chocolate too; that’s generally a feature of childhood, isn’t it? There are lots of options for kids these days, but all that seems better and healthier is a homemade dessert, especially since you know exactly the ingredients (which you can actually pronounce).

Here is a recipe for a healthy homemade chocolate that you can confidently serve to your child and you can also indulge in, once in a while. Isn’t it surprising that chocolate can actually be healthy food? This egg and dairy less vegan homemade chocolate proves it plenty!

You may want to adjust the recommended cocoa powder quantity depending on how strong and rich you like the chocolate to taste. I personally like a softer texture and taste so after trying the recipe with the recommended cocoa amount, I tried a version with less cocoa which tasted better to me. I ended up making 2 layers chocolate candies but next time I’ll use just half the cocoa powder. Your chocolate might taste different than mine depending on the brand you’re purchasing cocoa from. Experiment with your favorite cocoa brand first.

Chocolate, Christmas and Contemplation

The sun, bereft of his summer ferocity has sunk low in the gentle blue autumn skies, and wood smoke now wafts over us each evening, like a well loved winter comfort blanket. I love this time of year!

I read somewhere today that Michaelmas is the time we might begin to look within, for the light and the fire we find externally in the summer months. It is a time when we can take the fruits of our work throughout the spring and summer, and use them to fuel our winter work. An analogy is that of an acorn growing throughout the year which throws itself from the safety of its oak tree perch in Autumn, with the promise of better things to come! 

Pondering these wise and wild words, I wondered what seeds and fruits we had manifested this year? Momentarily I struggled to think and then it became clear that we have indeed nurtured so many little Spring time seedlings and ideas. We have worked tirelessly throughout the summertime, creating our beautiful new organic raw chocolate products for MULU; the Christmas Star and our amazing vegan truffle selection.

It somehow feels amazingly right to be crafting these divine dark chocolate treats, just as the darkness is creeping in, little by little, inch by inch. It is poetic how the swirling chocolate mirrors the whirling leaves being blown from the trees, ready to nourish the soul just as the leaves feed the earth! And with that thought, I became excited about what this rich and fertile compost could help us grow in the future! We have so many little seeds to nurture in this garden we have founded that sometimes it seems overwhelming! My reflections today made me realise that not every acorn becomes an oak tree but that each one takes that leap of faith to be everything they have the potential to be! What a powerful and heartening message from nature! 

And so, with the promise of Christmas in the air and preparations already underway for the festive season, we are happy and grateful to be gently blending our cacao recipes, handcrafting our sparkly MULU stars, buttons and bars. Cultivating the ground for our business to thrive in the coming year and also reaping the benefits of our summer labour. What wonderful opportunities present themselves at every turn. We are truly blessed!

 

End of summer ponderings and MULU Chocolate

And so I sought out a bar of MULU from my store cupboard and enjoyed the fruits of Ben's creativity afresh as I watched my littlest ones enjoy their baked apple, and I thought what a perfect way to the end the summer this was. Accepting all that is and looking forward to the future, with blackberries, plums, apples and of course chocolate at the forefront of my mind!
