Grain Free Brownies

Grain Free Vegan Brownie

Since I discovered coconut and banana flour, my world changed! So many possibilities for baking! This is one of my experiments that turned out great. This brownie has a very good texture and it’s delicious. Give it a try and let me know what you think.

1/2 cup banana flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
2 tbsp tapioca starch
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup coconut sugar or other dry sweetener
1/4 cup coconut oil, liquified
3/4 cup almond milk
1/4 cup water
1 tsp chia seeds
pinch of ground vanilla bean

Grain Free Vegan Brownie

Mix chia seeds with water and set aside. In a bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients. Add in the wet and stir well. Pour into a baking dish and bake at 180C for about 20 minutes. Dust with coconut flour for a prettier look ;)

  • banana flour?! whhhhhhat? these brownies look crazy good, lady!

  • They certainly look fantastic, but I’m with Caitlin, what on earth is banana flour?! Dehydrated bananas in powder form?

  • That’s right, flour made from unripe dried banana. its upcoming in the gluten free flour market. i randomnly found it in a latin grocery store in madrid!

  • Thanks veggie wedgie. I’ve just done a little googling and it seems it’s sometimes also called “plantain flour”. Will have a rummage in the international store near me…

  • Your welcome! The package I bought said “harina de platano” by a brand called NUTIVO. Here is a link to the picture of the product : http://img209.imageshack.us/img209/4200/harinaplatano640x480.jpg

  • these look amazing! i still have never tried coconut flour or coconut sugar, so these sound like an invitation for a fun adventure. i’ll keep my eyes peeled for some of that plaintain flour, too.

    This is so good! I can’t get banana flour so I used the same amount of rice flour instead, and only used 1 tbsp of brown sugar. I also didn’t have almond milk so used home made rice milk, and used vanilla essence instead of powder as I also can’t get it. It took 40mins to cook (that’s because my oven is rubbish) and it has come out firm on the top and lovely and moist in the middle. This will be a regular from now. Thanks so much for the great recipe!

  • Glad to hear it work with all the alterations! Sounds delicious.

  • AMAZING! Cannot wait to get my hands on some banana flour, brilliant. Will try these for sure. Thanks for the inspiration!

    I want to make this! Alas, I am allergic to bananas. Would this receipt still work with using the entire amount of flour as coconut flour? Seems like it would but I bet the banana gives it a great flavor.
