Vegan Black Forest Brownies

Vegan baking has become a passion for many these days – and what better way to sweeten up a special occasion than with a chocolatey vegan treat with luscious cherries in every bite?  Not only are these chocolate cherry brownies vegan-friendly, they are also healthier than traditional brownies because they contain no artificial ingredients.

There was a good deal on cherries in syrup at the grocery store, so we picked up a jar of them. With them we created these Vegan Black Forest Brownies which are absolutely so divine!

The texture is a bit unique, in a good way!  It holds together well, but it also has a lightness to it, like a cake. They’re soft and decadent.

Dates are super healthy and are a natural sweetener and we love using them in vegan baking and cooking. Because we’ve included the dates in this recipe, we only needed to add 1/3 cup of sugar to sweeten this brownie cake the rest of the way.

This vegan chocolate cherry brownie recipe is easy to make at home. So, get ready to wow your guests with deliciousness!

How to Make Vegan Black Forest Brownies

  1. In a food processor mix 8 oz. dates, 1/2 cup vegan butter, 1/2 cup dark cocoa powder, and 1/2 cup oat milk. Try to get it as smooth as you can.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  3. Move the mixture into a large bowl, using a spatula to scrape it all out.
  4. Add to the mixture: 1 tsp vanilla, 1 cup flour, 1 tbsp corn starch, 1/2 cup oat milk, 1/3 cup sugar, and 1/2 tsp baking soda. Mix well using a hand mixer if you have one.
  5. Gently stir in the cherries. If you want to get cherries in nearly every bite, you can use up to 2 cups of them.
  6. Line a baking dish with parchment paper, then pour mixture onto the parchment paper. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
  7. Most likely a toothpick won’t come out completely clean if you test with it, but that’s OK! Let it cool for at least 15 minutes before diving in.
