Oreo Brownies

Oreo Brownies

This deliciously fudgy vegan Oreo brownie recipe comes with added protein thanks to the addition of chickpeas and is entirely plant-based. If you fancy adding a bit of extra crunch to your plant-based brownies, decorate the top with Lotus and Oreo biscuits for a properly tasty, crowd-pleasing treat. You can even swap out the flour and skip the biscuits to make this recipe gluten-free.

Don't forget, The Big Lunch, the UK’s annual get-together for neighbours kicks off on June 5…. so get ready to tuck in. You'll be a hit if you bring along a pan of these vegan brownies!

Method

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 160 degrees C fan
  2. Line an 8 inch square tin with baking paper
  3. Blitz the chickpeas (and the water they came in) in a food processor until smooth (you can do this by hand but it will take a lot more effort!)
  4. Add the margarine and sugar and beat together
  5. Cocoa, flour and baking powder, mix well
  6. Fold in the chocolates or biscuit pieces, leaving about 1/3 to sprinkle on
  7. Pour the mix into the lined tin and add the remaining biscuits/chocolates (or if using a spread add a tsp so it’ll end up approx. in the middle of each slice when cut),
  8. bake for 25 minutes
  9. Leave to cool completely in the tin before slicing
  10. Alternative option – double the mixture ingredients, use a rectangular cake tin/roasting tin and make half and half with two flavours!
