You would never guess that these incredible, moist, dense and chocolatey brownies bites are made with spinach. That’s the delicious secret! Anyone, including plant-based foodies, can enjoy this tasty treat.
- 3 cups spinach leaves, loosely packed
- ¼ cup almond milk
- 1 ¼ cup granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
- 1 ½ cups whole wheat flour
- ¾ cup cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup chocolate chips or chocolate chunks
Prep time: 10 minutes Cook time: 25 minutes
Preheat oven to 350°F.
To make regular brownies, spray or grease an 8 x 8 inch baking pan.
To make the brownie bites spray or grease a mini muffin or cupcake tray. This batch will yield 24 – 28 mini bites.
Combine the spinach and milk in a food processor and blend until smooth. Empty into a bowl and whisk in the sugar and coconut oil.
Sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl.
Add dry ingredients to spinach, almond milk, sugar and coconut oil mixture, stirring until you have a thick batter.
Fold in the chocolate chips.
Spread the batter into the prepared 8 x 8 baking pan and bake for 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the edge of a brownie comes out clean. Cool, slice, serve and enjoy.
The mini brown bites will require less baking time. Bake for 8 – 10 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the brownie comes out clean.
Enjoy with the sweetest strawberries! These brownies are amazing on their own or you can add your favourite toppings to make it even sweeter.
