These brownie bites are 100% vegan and have that perfect crinkle top! Made in a mini muffin pan, these bite sized treats are perfect for parties.
What I love most about brownie bites is that every one is like the edge of a brownie. Crinkly, crackly tops, crispy edges with a fudgy, chocolatey middle.
Plus bite sized desserts are so cute, don’t you think? These brownie bites happen to be vegan, not that anyone would notice!
They are made in 1 bowl with just 10 simple ingredients, and are ready in a half hour!
How to make brownie bites
Find the complete recipe with measurements below.
First, mix the melted vegan butter (may also use coconut oil) and sugar together until combined. Then stir in the non-dairy milk and vanilla.
Over the bowl with the wet ingredients, sift in the flour (use gluten free if needed), cocoa, baking powder and salt. Stir until just combined, then fold in the chocolate chips.
Using a cookie scoop or spoon, place about 1 1/2 tablespoons of brownie batter in each mini muffin cup, then press the batter down with your fingers.
Bake for 12-15 minutes, until the tops look crinkly and done. The brownies will still be quite fudgy inside. Let them cool in the pan for 20-30 minutes. If you try to take them out too soon they will just fall apart.
Now run a knife around the edge of each brownie to help lift them out of the pan. Let the brownie bites cool on a rack until ready to eat.
You can have fun with different variations of brownie bites. They have a perfect indentation in the middle just begging to be filled. Try any of these, but don’t put the filling on until after they have baked and cooled.
