Triple Chocolate Brownie Cake
This Vegan Triple Chocolate Brownie Cake is a dairy-free, egg-free, and paleo way to enjoy a healthy, yet decadent vegan dessert! The dark chocolate ganache adds an almost sinful, yet elegant touch.
We spend most of our meal prep time on Sunday making healthy meals like slow cooker beef ragu, one pan fajita salmon, and baked buffalo chicken casserole. But, what do you make to satisfy your sweet cravings during the week? You could make a healthy bite recipe or even some granola, but sometimes those just won’t do. Sometimes you just want something rich. Something sinful. Something loaded with chocolate. Maybe a brownie? Maybe a cake? What about both?!
Oh yes, we did! We took two of our favorite chocolate desserts, brownies, and cake, and made them into one recipe. This insanely delicious, yet shockingly healthy Vegan Triple Chocolate Brownie Cake. Yes, we said vegan. Stop, stop! Don’t go running away! We promise you this recipe will blow your mind. It is dense, rich and fudgy but without the guilt. And did we mention that it’s finished with a healthy, yet sinful tasting chocolate ganache? We thought that would draw you back in.
TBH (to be honest), once you check out the ingredients for this Vegan Triple Chocolate Brownie Cake below, you might even agree with us that it is healthy enough for breakfast. We mean, chocolate chip pancakes and muffins are a breakfast thing, right? These brownies are, honestly, probably healthier. Actually, we guarantee they are healthier than any muffin you will find at your local store.
If you are thinking we are still crazy for saying these could be eaten for breakfast, then let’s make a deal. Swap out the ganache on top for some fresh macerated raspberries or strawberries. The berries will add a nice touch of natural sweetness.
