Dry ingredients:

Wet ingredients:

Chocolate cream:


  1. Put the dry ingredients in a big bowl and stir until there are no clumps

  2. Blend the sweet peas with all wet ingredients in your food processor

  3. Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until the mixture is combined. If the batter is too thick add a splash of plant milk. If it's too runny add a tbsp of coconut flour

  4. Line a brownies mold with parchment paper or grease it with a little bit of coconut oil. My mold measures 7 x 11 inches (18 x 28 cm)

  5. Bake in the oven at 390 degrees F (200 degrees C) for about 50 minutes (it can take longer, depending on your oven and the mold you use) or until a toothpick comes out almost clean (can still be sticky but not liquid). Check after 40 minutes with a toothpick. Don't overcook the brownies!

  6. To make the chocolate cream, just put all ingredients in a small bowl and stir well with a whisk. Pour the cream on top of the brownies once they cool down. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

You can sub the coconut sugar with 1/2 cup of brown sugar (100 g)


You shouldn't sub the coconut flour as it's unique and very absorbent. However, if you really want to use a different flour (like almond flour) then use at least 1/2 a cup of that different flour but I highly recommend to use coconut flour.


I use this brand of peanut flour. You can skip it and use 7 tbsp of cocoa powder and leave out the water (as the peanut flour makes the mixture thicker)


I am using canned sweet peas which are labeled as "sweet peas" but some brands might be labeled as "small/young peas"
