VEGAN WALNUT BROWNIES

Hello hello! You guys have been requesting the recipe for these brownies since I posted them on my stories so I’m not going to torture you any longer and finally share them with you. You’ll find the recipe for these babies down below. They are absolutely delicious and make an awesome dessert & snack to share with friends, kids and family. I personally can’t wait to get my kiddo one day involved in baking with me and of course also eating them with me. To make these brownies more fudgy & chewy, bake for only 18-25 minutes (depending on your oven) or if you want them to be a little more cakey bake for 25-30 minutes. I’d honestly recommend baking them for a shorter period of time, like that they won’t dry out as quickly and you’ll be able to enjoy them even days after making them. But do whatever you prefer. 🙂 

I also decided to add walnuts in mine, because I remember always eating walnut brownies as a kid in Switzerland and I just craved those childhood brownies but in vegan version course. 🙂 

I hope you enjoy them as much as I did! xx
