Sweet Sunday: Aquafaba Cranberry Brownies

Sweet Sunday is the new segment on Allerlicious for all things delicious and sweet! Posts every now and then on Sundays 😉

Baking was by far my favorite time spent in the kitchen before all of our allergies appeared, and I’m working my way back to a set of dessert recipes – allergen-free this time around.
Virtually all my baked foods contained eggs, and since I found out about aquafaba (the liquid from bean cans – learn all about it at aquafaba.com) I’ve been baking again after a break of two and a half years.
I like to reduce my aquafaba, i.e. I boil the drained bean liquid down to about 50% its original amount. It needs to then cool down until it reaches an egg white-like viscosity, and baking can commence!

And to start this sweet treats series, here’s a fantastic holiday brownie recipe: rich goodness your toddler will love to sample all the way from the cocoa powder to licking the bowl. And as there are no raw eggs, they can safely indulge 🙂
The cranberries add a nice tangy touch to the chocolatey delight, reminiscent of a cherry flavor. It does go well with whipped cream, if you eat dairy or coconut. Enjoy!
