  2. Amanda says:

    Thanks for the Instagram post leading me to this recipe, question- where do you get gf oats from? I’ve never seen them anywhere? Thanks lovely x

  3. Tara East says:

    Can’t wait to give this one a try! I remember hearing you talk about it on the podcast a little while ago 🙂 Sounds delicious!

  4. Tamara says:

    Sooooooo good! I used coconut flour instead (as we already had some). So delicious!

  5. Lauren says:

    This looks so yum and super easy I am definitely giving this one a go!
    May I just ask – with the essential oils do you just put a drop of each??
    Thank you xx

  6. Lisa Gregory says:

    Hey there, so I doubled the recipe and I must say this is the dryest brownie recipe I’ve ever made, I even added an egg and still so dry… What could have gone wrong??

  7. Lisa Gregory says:

    Hi, I made these over the weekend and doubled the recipe but it’s so dry… do you use the liquid from the beans?

  8. Luisa says:

    Wow I can’t wait to make this! Do you have a recipe for tour sweet potato frosting??? #drool xx

    • Hi honey, it’s sweet potato, cacao powder, and maple syrup, blend it all up and pop it on. It’s super delish! Enjoy and don’t forget to tag me in your pic’s when you make it. I love seeing them. xx

  9. Michal Greenberg says:

    Hi Melissa! Can’t wait to try this recipe! What can switch with the white cannelinni beans? Not sure if we have it here other than dried or frozen.

    • Hey Michal, you are going to love it. It’s so yummy. I haven’t tried swapping out the white cannellini but give it a go and let me know how you go. I hope it’s yummy. xx

    • Simone says:

      Michael I often make a black bean brownie similar to this, based on that experience alone I would suggest substituting for black beans.
      Otherwise if you have dry cannelinni beans just soak and boil til cooked then you could use that! X

  10. Nicole says:

    This brownie is divine! Definitely a crowd pleaser for vegans and non vegans alike. And, it’s also super easy to make. Thanks for the recipe, Melissa!

  11. Jayne says:

    Hey Melissa
    Have you ever tried making this recipe with another flour? I have tiger nut or almond flour. Silly question but is oat flour just ground up oats?
    Also having trouble finding unsweetened apple sauce. ‍♀️
    Looking forward to making this for Easter
    Thankyou xo

    • Hi honey, I haven’t tried it with any other flour but give it a go if you want. Yes, oat flour is just ground oats and you can always make your own apple sauce if you wish. Tag me in your photo’s when you make it. I am excited for you. xx

  12. Susanne says:

    How many drops of essential oil would you recommend?

    Thank you for sharing the recipe

  13. Irina says:

    Made this twice already. Love it. I’m out of Maple Syrup and wondering if I can add honey instead? If so, will be same as the syrup – 3/4 cups?

  14. Jodie says:

    Oh my lordy these are sensational – where have you been all my life!?! With the added wild orange or peppermint (dōTERRA fan as well) they taste super delicious. And the added bonus, my 8 year old loves them too!! Thank you so very much for sharing Melissa.

    Hi Melissa,
    I’ve seen on your Insta & via blog posts that you and Nick have gone fully plants based. I listened to his podcast about his health and reasoning with Ayurveda, etc. I’d like to know more about your decision – particularly as someone who purchased your recipe e-book that was filled with keto recipes, and not many fruits, no grains, lots of fats and animal dishes. I know that everyone needs to look out for themselves, listen to their body etc. but given the investment I made in listening to your advice and research, and now that’s changed I’d be keen to hear more about your 180.

    My computer is playing up! I think my question was deleted (apologies if there is a double up!)
