These Vegan Brownie Bites (aka "two-bite brownies") are full of chocolaty flavor and are easily made in one bowl. This vegan brownie recipe is gluten-free, refined sugar-free and nut-free too!Jump to Recipe
Every time I bake a batch of these vegan brownies, I cannot stop hearing the old Tootsie Pop commercial in my head...
Except now it goes like this: How many bites does it take to eat a mini brownie?
One. Two (crumbs left on plate). Two. The answer is two. It takes two bites to eat a mini brownie. I mean, they are nicknamed "two-bite brownies" for a reason, right?
However, a better question would be: How many mini brownies will I actually get to eat before my husband and kids devour them all?
Zero. I will get to eat zero brownies.
That is, not unless I stash them in a secret location in the cupboard where no one will find them (which is basically just toward the back of the shelf since they don't look for anything past the front row anyway).
I'm just kidding. They're nice enough to let me have one, maybe two if I'm lucky. 😉
Just try them for yourself, and you'll
see taste why they are so addictive. 🙂
What is needed to make this vegan brownie recipe?
In order to make these brownie bites, you'll need some aquafaba, which is the liquid found in a can of chickpeas.
Not only is it an amazing vegan egg substitute, but it also gives you an excuse to make another dish with chickpeas (not that you need one because chickpeas are awesome).
Just be sure you are using "no salt added" chickpeas to obtain your aquafaba.
You'll only need 6 tablespoons of aquafaba for this recipe, so you can store the rest in an airtight container (I use a mason jar) in the refrigerator for about a week.
You'll also need a 24-cup mini muffin tin and mini baking cups. I highly recommend using parchment baking cups to prevent sticking.
Other Ingredients Needed for These Two-Bite Brownies
- Coconut Oil
- Coconut Sugar
- Pure Maple Syrup
- Pure Vanilla Extract
- Gluten-Free, Whole-Grain Oat Flour
- Kosher Salt
- Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
- Vegan, Refined Sugar-Free Chocolate Chips
How to Make Vegan Brownie Bites
Before you get started, you will need to preheat your oven to 350° F and line your mini muffin tin with mini baking cups.
You'll also need to melt the coconut oil and let it cool down to room temperature.
Once the coconut oil has cooled, add it to a large mixing bowl along with coconut sugar, maple syrup, aquafaba and vanilla extract.
Then, whisk to combine. Next, whisk in oat flour and kosher salt.
Now, add cocoa powder.
Stir in the cocoa powder and then add mini chocolate chips.
Fold in the chocolate chips. Then, scoop batter into baking cups.
Bake for 18-22 minutes.

Can I use the standard cupcake size baking sheet? Any temp/time adjustments?
Hi Brita! I have not tried making them with a standard size cupcake pan. This recipe makes the exact amount you need for 24 minis, so I know it won't give you 12 regular sized ones, but I'm not sure how many since I haven't done it. I definitely think the bake time will be longer...maybe start with an extra 10 minutes and keep checking with a toothpick from there. Again, I'm not really sure since I never tried it, but feel free to let me know if you do and what adjustments you had to make.
