Dry ingredients:

Wet ingredients:

Chocolate glaze:


  • Add the dry ingredients to a big bowl and stir until there are no clumps.
  • Blend the sweet peas with all other wet ingredients in your food processor or blender.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until the mixture is combined. If the batter is too thick add a splash of plant-based milk. If it's too runny add a tbsp of coconut flour.
  • Line a baking pan with parchment paper or grease it with a little bit of coconut oil. My mold measures 7 x 11 inches (18 x 28 cm).
  • 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!
  • To make the chocolate glaze, simply put all ingredients to a small bowl and stir well with a whisk. Pour the cream on top of the brownies once they cooled down. Enjoy! PS: They taste even better on day 2!


  • You can use 1/2 cup (100 g) of brown sugar instead of coconut sugar.
  • You shouldn't replace 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 cup more of it but I highly recommend to use coconut flour.
  • I use this brand of peanut flour/powdered peanut butter. You can skip it and use 7 tbsp of cocoa powder and leave out the water (as the peanut flour absorbs a lot of liquid).
  • I am using canned sweet peas which are labeled as "sweet peas" but some brands might be labeled as "small/young peas".
  • Recipe makes 12 brownies. Nutrition facts are for one brownie WITH the chocolate glaze.
