Paleo/Vegan Easy Brownies

In my quest of posting more and more vegan recipes, I did a little research online and came up with a basic idea for a healthy paleo/vegan brownies that was also really cheap.

After a few changes we came up with this recipe you can use either to make brownies or Cookies.

Hope you like them!

Step 1: Ingredients

This recipe has 3 main Ingredients.

  • 2 cups + 1 tbsp (500g) – Kabocha Squash.
  • 1 cup (200g) – Yucca Flour.
  • 1/3 cup (20g) – Cocoa.

I always saw the kitchen as an everyday laboratory. So be creative and try different combinations, find the Squash you like the most, try Yucca or Carob Flour, and Cocoa from different places!


  • 1 Cup Almonds or Nuts.
  • Coconut Flakes.
  • Honey.

Step 2: Preparation

Cut the Squash in half and remove the seeds. It should be as easy as scraping it with a spoon.

Once is clean, cut each part in quarters.

Put the Squash in a Pot with enough water and take it to fire. When the water starts boiling, count about 10 minutes or until the squash is soft.

Step 3: Orange Handed

When the squash is cool enough to handle, add 1 cup (200g) of Yucca flour and mix it with your hands. I prefer to use my hands to get a smooth dough and avoid lumps. (It’s also anti stress).

Once the dough is soft and has a uniform colour, incorporate the cacao and repeat the procedure.

Step 4: Add Some Magic to It!

I love nuts! So I add some to the dough along with some coconut flakes.

Step 5: Cooking Time!

Pour the dough into a tray.

Place it in the oven for 30 to 40 minutes.

You will start noticing that the top of the cake cracks. that’s ok :)!.

Note: The dough won’t grow. So if you like them thicker just use a smaller tray.

Step 6: Enjoy!
