|Who’s for tea in the garden?|
Oreos are vegan! (At least, the ones you get in the UK are.) Their sweet and slightly salty flavours and chocolatey, creamy texture are a unique combo, so when I found them on sale (2 packets for £1 in Poundland) this weekend, I just had to indulge. Having some very ripe bananas to use up and the urge for home baking, however, I turned some of the biscuits into brownies. To help get that fudginess, I used melted gour (raw sugar made by simply evaporating cane juice, goodness intact) but if you don’t have any, try soft brown sugar.
Makes about 12 brownies, depending on the size of the tray.
275g wholemeal flour (I sifted out the larger pieces of bran first) or plain flour
125g gour, melted/ dark brown sugar
3 rounded tabs cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp bicarb.
2 bananas, sliced
4 or 5 crumbled Oreos (I used the Chocolate Creme variety) plus an extra one for scattrering on the top
2 flax eggs
1 cup melted coconut oil/ cold pressed sunflower oil
1 cup plant milk
- Mix all the dry ingredients together, including the banana chunks.
- Mix all the wet ingredients together.
- Beat the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and spread the mixture into a prepared tin or silicone mould.
- Scatter with more crumbled Oreo.
- Bake in an oven preheated to 180C or 25-30 mins. (Test with a skewer to see if they’re done.)
- These brownies are great warm with a scoop of banana icecream. (You won’t believe how easy the icecream is to make!) Though moist enough when fresh they tend to dry out so best eat as many as you can at once 😉
