Fudgey Wudgey Brownies (vegan, gluten free)

Baking, why you so fun?? I wanted some super fudgey brownies and super fudgey brownies is what I got. I love it. They’re sooo good topped with chocolate brownie coconut butter (Sweet Spreads brand) because that just makes the most sense you knowww. I’m about it. Perfect treat after a morning bike ride.

I am so glad I invested in this road bike!! It clears my mind SO nicely and it’s not harsh on my body at all like going to the gym is. I got the bike hoping to find ways to exercise around my fibromyalgia pain, and it’s PERFECT. I highly recommend it if you’re also looking for low-impact exercises. There’s nothing like forgetting everything for 1-2 hours and just enjoying the outdoors. I’m still not 100% comfortable around traffic with my clip-in shoes/pedals, so I like to find the most secluded loops to go on. Like. So awkward in traffic. My first time with the clip-in pedals (it comes with regular pedals you wear tennis shoes with), I went with my boyfriend just incase I fell. Andddd… I fell. I was fine until we got to a stop sign. And sure enough – first stop we got to  – I fell. I unclipped my right foot just fine. Put my foot on the ground with my left foot still clipped in (all good so far), AND FELL TO THE LEFT. Queen of awkward. But luckily that hasn’t happened since ._. It’s fun to see how much further or faster I can go each time. Hills are rough, but I’m getting better and getting over the fear of not being able to do it. Sucks though because it’s getting cold D; and so I want to go on my bike less and just go to the gym because I’m a wimpppp. WAhhhhh. I think we’re going to get an indoor bike trainer though so that both of us can still train in the winter. :) He does triathalons and stuff like that so it’s a little more important for him to still be able to ride; I just want to for fun :D so yay I’m pro-bike trainer.

      I’d recommend 1/4 cup of maple syrup (or agave)! They might even turn out more magnificent that way :o

      You could also consider using 1/4 cup coconut sugar – I’ve been experimenting with that recently and find it adds a subtle but rich flavor.

      If you’re looking for another zero-calorie type sweetener, I know there’s another similar to stevia that’s natural…but the name doesn’t come to my mind right now. So sorry. If I remember that option I’ll let you know!!

        Would sugar free maple syrup be okay to use? im not sure if you’ve heard of this stevia company but theyre called nunaturals and they have a sugar free liquid cocoa syrup that you use to sweeten stuff with and im not sure if I could also use that in this recipe? it taste like pure chocolate but has no calories and of course is sugar free, I love using it to sweeten a lot of foods.

        I also have a few more questions regarding stevia lol. Sorry im just interested in making a lot of your recipes including this one. hope I don’t annoy you :p but when you call for “Stevia, baking stevia, granulated stevia, stevia packets” are they all the same thing?

        • KimNo Gravatar says:

          I think you could! I’ve heard of that but have never used it myself so i’m not sure how sweet it is.

          Never annoying!! Baking stevia is different from when I say stevia packets (granulated stevia). The packets are a lot more concentrated than baking stevia – the baking stevia is what comes in a big green bag by Sweet Leaf! Does that make sense? So if a recipe calls for 1/2 cup baking stevia or 1/2 cup stevia, you definitely don’t want to use 1/2 cup worth of packets. It would be too concentrated and end up bitter.

            Oh okay that makes sense :) So what if I don’t have the baking stevia on hand, would it be okay to replace it using a liquid sweetener like SF maple syrup or maybe those liquid stevia extracts?

    • KimNo Gravatar says:

      With the coconut sugar, I meant to add, anywhere from 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup would work. Depends on how sweet you want to go! But I wouldn’t use more than 1/4 cup of any liquid sweetener like maple syrup.
