A delicious clean eating brownie that tastes decadent but is easy on your waistline! Gluten free, dairy free, and vegan.
I can’t believe I have never shared a brownie recipe on the blog before! I’m pretty sure that is a sin. I personally love chocolate brownies, but avoid them like the plague since they are typically loaded with sugar and unhealthy oils. So in my quest to come up with a healthy brownie recipe that fits into my clean eating regimen, but is also gluten free, dairy free and vegan, I have found the answer in these Clean Eating Gluten Free Brownies!!
Of course, you don’t have to make them gluten and dairy free, or vegan for that matter, but because of my food sensitivities, I needed to. Yes, I was totally skeptical at first. I didn’t think I could make a delicious brownie with all of these restrictions. But I was SO wrong!!
Of course, the true test comes when I feed them to my kids!! My own tastebuds have adapted to eating sugar free, but my boys? Not as much. They like the sweet stuff once in a while! When I gave them a brownie to eat for their snack, they all went “Mmmmmmm, this is my favourite snack EVER!” And when I said that the brownies they were eating were actually full of healthy ingredients, they said, “But they are brownies!” BOOM!! That’s when I know they passed the true taste test!
These Clean Eating Gluten Free Brownies are kid approved AND mom approved! A win-win!
A few notes:
- If you don’t want to make them gluten free, you can sub 1 cup whole wheat flour for the gluten-free flour.
- If you don’t want to make them dairy free, you can use regular dark chocolate chips and 1% milk.
- If you don’t want to make them vegan, you can use an egg instead of a flax egg.
