How To Make The Best Vegan Brownies- Recipe

Craving ooey-gooey-chewy all-vegan brownies easily made from scratch? This recipe is for you!

Have you ever found one or maybe five of these sad bananas on your counter? Yep, me too! Last night I was cleaning up after dinner and saw that I had 5 lonely, aging and browning bananas sitting all by themselves. I hate to waste bananas. You too? Anyways, I was in the mood for something chocolaty that I could quickly throw together. I thought about making my favorite chocolate chip banana bread, but I wanted something with even MORE chocolate. Brownies! I also wanted to use up those sad bananas. And that is where these Chocolate Banana Brownies came from…

Ripe Banana Vegan Brownie Recipe

Sad huh? Poor, poor banana! At least they are vegan! Not the banana silly, although that is too, but the brownies! I make all of my sweets plant based. We really like the taste of these vegan, even better than how we used to make them non-vegan years ago.

  • Love this idea! I hate buying bananas because of this happening and not always wanting bread. I do always want chocolate!
    Do you taste the banana very much?

    • With 4 bananas in it you do taste them… it’s a good taste though they work perfectly with the chocolate. If you want more less of a banana taste try putting just 2 in and substituting apple sauce for the other 2. I’m thinking 1 cup of apple sauce. Let me know how it tastes if you try it 🙂

  • Such a great idea! Of course, with my husband around, there are never any extra bananas around the house 😉

  • Thanks for this easy,vegan recipe!! they look delicious and I’m going to make them right now….I only have 2 bananas so I will sub with apple sauce and I’ll come back and tell you how they turned out. I’m thinking 1 1/4 cups of applesauce and will add more if the texture doesn’t seem right…..see ya
