Vegan Brownies

The other night I was craving chocolate sooo bad. Unfortunately since we are trying to be healthier and eat cleaner, we did/do not have any chocolate. So I decided to make brownies and of course we were out of eggs. Being resourceful me, I began searching the internet for alternative ingredients to use in place of eggs. I discovered that you can use different oils and bananas in place of eggs. The brownie recipe I was using already called for oil so I opted for using bananas. For every egg the recipe called for I used a banana (the total being two). I was not sure how these would turn out and to my relief they were delicious! The brownies turned out supper moist and only had a slight banana taste (it was like eating chocolate banana bread minus not as strong of a banana taste). My husband thought they were gross but when we had friends over, the brownies were soon gone.

This got me thinking about switching other recipes and trying to be more vegan. My online yoga certification talks about the benefits of being a vegetarian or vegan and has really got me thinking of making the switch. Right now I have very little knowledge of veganism (is that even a word?), but small small I think I could do it. I would want to try a vegan lifestyle for at least a month and see if I look/feel any different and if it would be worth it.

  1. You should totally try it! I’ve been vegan for over a year and it’s changed my life. I was struggling with a thyroid disorder for over 2 years, switched to veganism (for the animals…had no idea about health benefits), and then my thyroid disease completely vanished in 2 months. I haven’t had it come back since!

    1. I became vegan for the health benefits, environmental benefits and ethics equally and I think it is amazing that veganism makes a positive difference in such a broad combination of areas. Yay veganism and good on you for sticking with it – it is definitely worth it.

  2. Of course veganism is a word! I have been vegan for about 8 months now, removed all animal products from my diet and try to use vegan skincare and cleaning products wherever possible. I found it gave me more energy, cleared up my acne and removed a sort of ‘brain fog’ I had found myself in, even though I was eating no processed foods (but still consuming meat and dairy etc). Now though I feel great! If you need some recipe inspiration head on over to my blog beware the beans where you’ll find delicious vegan recipes to indulge a sweet tooth.. including many chocolate based goodies!

    1. Wow that is amazing!! I feel that (unless it is organic) animal products are so full of damaging chemicals. I am so happy for you!! I am excited for when I can say that I have been off animal products for 8 months, that is seriously amazing!!

      1. Thank you! It just makes me feel so good, I’m scared of the fatigue etc that might occur when I stop. But you will get there too – start with small goals and build it up 🙂 My first plant based goal was to not eat dairy for a week and since then I’ve transitioned into a fully vegan lifestyle. You can do it too!
