Vegan Chocolate Brownies

is the chickpea water – Aquafaba!! Wondering what an aquafaba is?  🙄 

A LITTLE ABOUT AQUAFABA – Aquafaba, the gelatinous liquid, is a great substitute to egg. Yes you heard me right – a great substitute to eggs. Just like eggs, this liquid when whisked gives the same fluffy texture. It a great leavening agent (one that incorporates gas bubbles into the batter) and a binding agent. 

Here is a vegan mayonnaise recipe that is prepared with aquafaba.

Now, onto the recipe!

Combine all the dry ingredients and set it aside. Assemble wet ingredients and whisk aquafaba until its is frothy and bubbly. Do not skim through this step. Add sugar and beat until the mixture forms a soft peak. 

Combine wet + dry ingredients and mix until well blended. Pour the batter in a greased tray and bake as directed. For a deep chocolate flavor I have added instant coffee powder to the batter. But that’s optional, feel free to leave that out if you don’t like the strong taste of coffee.

These brownies have the right amount of sweetness and are super moist, soft and chewy on the inside with the crispy top and edges.

I like my brownies to be chocolaty so have added a layer of chocolate on top. More chocolate – more taste – more yumm and magical!!  😀

    Thanks for sharing! I have two questions, which may be related. 1. What happens to the vinegar listed in the recipe? Am I missing something? 2. What should one do if the aquafaba will not peak when whipped?

    • Ruchi says:

      Thanks for stopping by Ryan.
      1. Vinegar is added along with oil and essence.
      2. Aquafaba forms a smooth peak after 5 minutes into beating, if it doesn’t then I would recommend to beat it longer until you get a soft white peak as seen in pic 5.
      Hope that answers your query.
