INGREDIENTS & SUBSTITUTIONS
gluten free brownie mix
I used Otto’s natural gluten free brownie mix for these Brownies. I have not tried other gluten free brownie mixes for this recipe yet.
You can sub any nut butter here instead of the peanut butter for these brownies. You can use almond butter or cashew butter. If you are allergic to nuts, you can also sub granola butter, chickpea butter or chocolate hummus in place!
This recipe uses applesauce insetad of any oil or eggs. It keeps the brownies moist. If you dont have apple sauce you can use any pureed or mashed food that is a similar texture (i.e. mashed bananas, pumpkin puree, butternut squash puree, etc)
This gluten free brownies recipe uses any plant based milk you want to use. You can can be oat milk (gluten-free), flax seed milk, soy milk, coconut milk, plant based milk, almond milk ect. All milks will work the same, even if you choose to use a dairy based milk. You can sub any milk and continue to follow the amounts in the brownies.
