Gluten-Free Vegan Carob Brownies

I was ready to take on the challenge this morning when Daevyd woke up and requested that we make brownies. I opened the pantry and was happy to find just enough Carob powder remaining to make a batch. He helped me to measure the ingredients and he couldn’t wait for them to bake.

I used a combination of brown rice flour and almond flour as the base. For sweetener, I used maple syrup and coconut sugar.  I wanted to make a really moist brownie without using any carob chips. I prepared flax eggs and then added maple syrup, vanilla, and almond extract. I used coconut oil but you could substitute it with applesauce. I then combined both and bake them in a rectangular baking pan for 25 minutes.

I allowed to carob to cool slightly while in the pan, then top it with carob frosting. The frosting further made the carob brownies really moist.

The results were amazing and we all enjoyed it. These Gluten-Free Vegan Carob Brownies had the perfect balance of flavor!

      This was amazing! I made it last Friday and my family devoured it! I made a double batch, one was plain as muffins and the other with carob chips in a square pan. We preferred the plain muffin cups over the pan but they were both good. Thanks for such great recipes! I need to try it with the frosting next time!

        Moalyne, I’m so happy that you and your family enjoyed my recipe. It goes pretty fast in my home as well. I would love to add carob chips but my local store only carries unsweetened carob chips and I have requested the sweetened kind. The frosting makes it super moist and decadent!
