All three of my "boys"are home at the moment and it's no exaggeration to say that keeping them fed is a mamouth task! In general, I mainly make raw puds but the truth is, that given a choice, the boys prefer a baked treat. So yesterday I was playing around with the wonderful thing that is aquafaba (chickpea water) and made these super-quick and easy, squidgy vegan brownies.
They tickquite a few "free from" and "healthier" boxes too (although the boys didn't notice that!):
Whisk 200g aquafaba (just about any bean water works btw - I have tried kidney bean water, flageolets water and a few others I can't remember) for 3-4 minutes until it looks like well-whisked egg whites.
Mix melted and dry ingredients together and then fold in the whisked aquafaba.
Bake at 180°C for about 25 minutes or until cooked on the outside and squidgy on the inside. Let me know how you get on if you give it a go! My boys loved them as did my 85 year old parents - so there's a good spectrum of age testers there!
