Brownies (aqua faba)

Tried a new Brownie recipe today - using Black Bean aqua faba, This was based on the recipe from These were quite crumbly - not sure if they are supposed to be or whether adding a bit of banana might be worth it next time.


  • 1/2 cup of Trex Dairy Free butter (melted)
  • 1/4 cup of white sugar
  • 1/2 cup soft light brown sugar
  • 6 tbl of aqua faba (this is equal to two eggs)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup of cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup of (dairy free) chocolate - either drops or broken up pieces
  • 1/3 cup of nuts
  • 1 cup self raising flour
  • pinch of salt


  • Use a loaf tin, line with greaseproof paper
  • Pre heat oven to 175C
  • whisk together melted "butter", aqua faba, sugar, salt and cocoa powder
  • add in the flour slowly whisking
  • use a metal spoon and fold in the choc chips &/or the nuts
  • spoon into the loaf tin
  • cook for approx 35 mins.

These were cooked at 180C for 40mins and were quite crispy on the outside and crumbly. I think dropping temp and time would help resolve this one.
