December is here and so is Christmas baking. Yayyy! So have you decided what will you make for Christmas?Honestly, Christmas is just an excuse for me to share this wonderful healthy vegan brownies recipe with you. This Christmas treat your kids with this wonderful version of brownies which are as good as the indulging ones. . Not only they are easy to make and decorate but also quiet healthy and delicious.

They are dense , intensely chocolaty , oh so fudgy like a chocolate bar and one of my favorite recipes that I have developed over the time. 
So let’s get started , hope you like this recipe as much as we do and treat your loved ones with something healthy .
Please read the notes for possible substitutions too.
Lets start with homemade apple sauce. You can of course use store bought applesauce or replace it with banana puree too. 
A dash of cinnamon just adds so much flavor to applesauce , you will be tempted to eat it all just by itself –
Have a teaspoon or two when sweet cravings strike – Ahaaa so healthy and a great option to satiate your cravings.
Home made apple sauce , easy and yum , apt for folks of all ages, toddlers too.

  • 3 medium size apples
  • ½ cup water
  • pinch of cinnamon (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  1. Heat water in a saucepan.
  2. Meantime, peel , core and dice the apples
  3. Once the water starts to simmer add lemon juice and apples to it. Add in the cinnamon powder .
  4. Cover loosely and let it cook until softened - for 15-20 minutes on low-medium flame.
  5. Stir occasionally in between.
  6. Add more water if required.
  7. Let it cool down and blend it until a smooth puree.
These brownies are intensely dense , fudgy and chocolaty . If you you prefer bit on a sweeter side reduce cocoa and water by 1 tablespoon.
Total amount of flour is 1 ¼ cup – you can skip oats flour and use wheat only.
Honey can be substituted for agave nectar
I use raw sugar, use preferred sugar / sugarfree options .
Substitute flaxseed meal with 4 tablespoon thick yogurt
Any nut butter can be used instead of peanut butter- for example almond or hazelnut butter.
Substitute applesauce with banana puree
Substitute canola with your choice of healthy flavorless oils.
The batter is supposed to be thick, if its too thick ,add some water -1 tablespoon at a time. The reason being flour quality differs and absorbs different amounts of liquid.
We do not want a cake , we want brownies, hence no whippers or beaters used.
In short, this is a very forgiving healthy recipe ,and all the mentioned substitutions work great.
yummm , so fudgy – care to have a bite 🙂
These brownies taste great straight out of the fridge , but tastes even heavenly if you warm it 15-20 seconds in the microwave and serve it with some ice cream .
