Throughout January/ Veganuary, we will be posting recipes for some of our favourite plant based and CBD infused dishes and treats for you to try.
You will need to infuse your vegan butter with CBD for this recipe. If you are new to cannabutter, follow these instructions.
1/2 cup (115 g) of vegan cannabutter (melted)
1 1/2 cups (300 g) of coconut sugar
1/3 cup (80 ml) of non-dairy milk (oat/almond milk recommended)
2 teaspoons (10 ml) of vanilla
1 cup (150 g) of flour
3/4 cup (90 g) cocoa powder
3/4 teaspoon (.75 g) of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon (.50 g) of salt
1 cup (175 g) of vegan chocolate chips
Any non-dairy milk will work in this recipe but we recommend oat or almond milk. Some will come sweetened and unsweetened, so keep in mind they may alter the brownies’ flavour.
You will need a baking tray and parchment paper for these vegan CBD brownies. Parchment paper is a must when making brownies—they can stick to the pan and prevent you from indulging in every last crumb.
Step 1: Prepping the pan
Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Firstly coat the bottom and edges of the pan with some of the vegan butter. This helps the parchment paper stick to the pan. Cut a piece of parchment that fits in the pan. Now lightly butter the piece of parchment paper.
Step 2: Combine the wet ingredients
In a mixing bowl whisk together the melted vegan cannabutter and sugar. Then add the milk and vanilla. Whisk until fully incorporated.
Step 3: Combine the dry ingredients
In an additional bowl combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Whisk to remove all lumps. Left with a smooth textured mix
Step 4: Combine the wet and dry ingredients
Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and stir well to combine. Ensure it is mixed well.
Step 5: Adding chocolate
Fold in the chocolate chips.
Step 6: Add batter to pan
Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan.
Bake for 25 minutes.
