Carob brownies that are healthy, vegan, and gluten free, and taste like fudgy warm chocolate! Who said healthy cant be yummy!?


Number of serving: 8
1 cup Better Batter All Purpose Flour

3/4 cup toasted carob powder

1 cup cane sugar

2 tbsp flax meal

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/8 tsp salt

dash of cinnamon, (optional)

1/2 cup rice milk

1/2 cup soy-free Earth Balance Buttery Spread, melted

2 tbsp original apple sauce

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 to 3/4 cup of carob chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly spray a 9x9 pan.
  • In a mixing bowl mix cream your melted butter and sugar together. Then add your vanilla extract, and apple sauce in as well.

    Next, in a second mixing bowl, mix together your flour, carob powder, flax, baking poweder, baking soda, and salt. Mix well!
  • Now add your wet ingredients to your dry, and blend them together gently. Then add in your carob chips.
  • Pour your brownie batter into your sprayed baking pan and allow this to bake for 30-45 minutes. Time will vary by the oven, so watch your brownies! You may test them as well with a tooth pick from time to time to evaluate readiness.
  • The one caution I might add is be careful not to over bake. Over baking these will result in you having dry and hard brownies. You want them moist and fudgy.
