Healthy Cold Brew Chocolate Chunk Brownies (gf/vegan)

Healthy Cold Brew Chocolate Chunk Brownies (gf/vegan)

These decadent chocolate fudge brownies are loaded with dark chocolate chunks and made using rich cold brew coffee. Made gluten-free, refined sugar-free and vegan; these brownies are so healthy you can have them for breakfast!

One of my greatest loves in the world is coffee! I never go a morning without it. I always have a pot (okay, more like 2-3 cups) of hot black coffee in the morning and if I feel myself crashing in the afternoon (probably from all the coffee in the morning) I have a cold brew pick-me-up… So adding coffee to my brownies was a no brainer. I’ve made espresso brownies dozens of times but adding cold brew concentrate is a game changer.


I used 2 scoops of PEScience Select Protein in this recipe. For vegan use their plant based proteins and use just 1 scoop and reduce pumpkin puree to 1/3 cup. You can get 30% OFF PEScience products by using my affiliate code PBCHOCO at checkout on their website www.pescience.com
