How to make this Healthy Brownie Loaf
You may be surprised to hear that there are apples in this loaf. “WHAT!? APPLES AND CHOCOLATE?”
Yes. Apples and chocolate.
To be honest, you don’t exactly taste the apples, they’re just there to give the loaf some volume and moistness (sorry, I said it!) And can you think of a better way to use up those apples that have been in your fridge for weeks?
First, you’re going to boil the apples until they are soft, then blend them with some nut butter.
Mix this mixture into some oat flour (you can just blend some oats), cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Add in some plant-based milk and syrup and combine, then top with some extra chocolate (if you’re feeling naughty) and bake!
Easy, like I said!

Healthy Brownie Loaf
- 3 Apples (peeled and chopped into small cubes)
- 1/2 cup Nut Butter (I used peanut butter)
- 1/2 cup Maple Syrup
- 1/4 cup Plant-based Milk (I used almond milk)
- 1.5 cup Gluten-free Oats (blended into fine flour)
- 1/2 cup Cocoa
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- 1 tsp Baking Soda
- 1 pinch Salt
- Vegan Chocolate (optional but recommended)
- Add the apples along with a cup of water to a pan and cook on medium until the apples are soft, then put aside to cool.
- Meanwhile – blend the oats until fine. The finer the oats, the less crumbly your loaf will be.
- Mix your blended oats, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium-sized bowl.
- Once the apples have cooled down – add them along with the nut butter to a blender and blend until smooth.
- Add the apple and nut butter mix to your dry ingredients along with your milk and syrup. Mix well.
- Pour the batter in a lined bread tin and top with chocolate.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes in a preheated oven @ 190°C
- These last about 5 days in the fridge.
- I find they get even yummier with time!
- Pop these in the microwave if you like them warm.
