Our Crisp Collaborator Amanda Hernandez created some delicious chocolate cherry brownies, that are not only featuring our dark-sweet cherries but are vegan and gluten-free!
I’m calling these the best brownies you will ever taste! These allergy-friendly, vegan gluten-free chocolate cherry brownies are fudgy and full of flavor. They make the perfect dessert. Pair with a glass of plant-based milk or a scoop of vegan ice cream for the ultimate treat. I had my husband try a bite right after they cooled and he was shocked they are gluten-free and vegan so they are definitely a treat that everyone can enjoy.
Gluten-Free & Vegan
I made these brownies gluten-free by switching to gluten-free flour to make them allergy-friendly to anyone you’re serving them to. If you don’t need to follow a gluten-free diet, feel free to use white whole-wheat flour instead. The brownies are vegan by using no eggs and soy milk though any plant-based milk will work well.
At first, I kept the batch small and then I thought, these brownies would be amazing to bring to a picnic so I doubled the size of my original brownies. If you have some leftover, you can always freeze them as well. I bet you won’t have any left though as they’re super delicious! They taste very rich and indulgent and the chocolate and cherry flavors go together so well.
Your New Favorite Treat
While these chocolate cherry brownies wouldn’t be called healthy exactly since they are a dessert, they are on the healthier side with less sugar, unsweetened applesauce and of course, delicious Stemilt cherries. Cherries are packed with nutrients with antioxidants, vitamin C, fiber, and potassium. That dark red color means that cherries are packed with anthocyanins which is a type of antioxidant that helps protect the heart and improves cognitive function. Cherries are also wonderful for workout recovery.
