Healthy Vegan Nutella Brownies

These vegan nutella brownies are a healthy dessert the whole family will love.These brownies are packed with nutrients, while also being sweet and decadent!

We're making fudgy brownies with a twist! Brownies that taste out of this world amazing, but are still healthy, gluten-free, oil-free, dairy-free, egg-free and refined sugar-free.

Remember last week when we whipped up that Superfood Nutella recipe? We chatted in that post about a few ways you could use it, but since you seem to love it so much, I thought I'd give you another idea.

These Healthy Vegan Nutella Brownies are legit. They're super simple to make, are ready in under 30 minutes, use just one bowl and like I said, taste awesome.

They're chocolatey, they're hazelnutty, they're slightly sweet and they definitely have that Nutella-ness coming through!

This recipe is actually a spin on my Vegan Peanut Butter Quinoa Bar recipe, but with our vegan nutella and some cacao powder.

The primary ingredients are the nutella of course, but also quinoa flour. I love using quinoa flour in recipes like this because it helps make the recipe a bit higher in protein, but it also helps them not be crumbly.

One thing to note about quinoa flour is that it can sometimes have a very strong, almost bitter taste. I've found when I use quinoa flour in recipes that have a strong flavor base (like chocolate or coffee), I can't taste the quinoa, but in more delicately flavored recipes, you might want to consider toasting your quinoa flour.

I have a whole tutorial on the blog about how to toast quinoa flour, and it's super easy, so I definitely recommend giving it a go if the flavor throws you off!
