How to Make Vegan Pot Brownies that Don’t Taste like Sh*t
Vegan Pot Brownies Using Coconut Cannabis Oil
It’s hard to find someone who doesn’t love a good brownie, no matter their dietary and health preferences. Chocolate is nearly irresistible. And of course, mixing delicious chocolate gooeyness with cannabis is no strange combination to us. But when you make a pot brownie, the recipe simply substitutes cannabutter for normal butter. But what about a vegan recipe? Well, tested and tried, here is a vegan pot brownie recipe that is healthy and doesn’t taste like sh*t.
Coconut Cannabis Oil
This recipe calls for coconut cannabis oil. So if you don’t already have coconut cannabis oil at the ready, here’s how to make it. Warning: this part takes up to 18 hours. But once it’s done, you’ll have a jar full of coconut cannabis oil in solid form or to melt down as a liquid.
Ingredients and Tools
5 cups of distilled water
2 ounces of cannabis, finely ground
1 cup of organic coconut oil
Cheese cloth or strainer
Tupperware or mason jar
Melt coconut oil in crock pot on the lowest setting.
(No crock pot? Use cast iron or heavy bottomed, thick-walled pot. Make sure temperature does not exceed 320 degrees Fahrenheit.)
Add cannabis and water when coconut oil has melted and mixed.
Turn crock pot up to high. Stir frequently for 1 hour.
After an hour, turn the crock pot down to low. Steep the mixture and stir every hour. After 12-18 hours, turn off crock pot and let cool, but not solidify.
When still warm, pour over cheese cloth or strainer into jar or Tupperware. Make sure to squeeze all the liquid from the ground weed. Cover container and place in refrigerator overnight.
Remove the hardened oil from discarded water and it’s done! The coconut cannabis oil can be used in many different weed recipes.
Fudgy, Nutty, Vegan Pot Brownies
Now that the coconut cannabis oil is prepared, the vegan pot brownies are ready to begin. The recipe below is a fudgy textured brownie and makes 12-16 pieces. Includes nuts. For those with nut allergies, simply substitute more chocolate chips. Here’s what you’ll need:
250g plain white flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt
1 banana, peeled and mashed
230g caster sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
140g dark chocolate (70%), broken into pieces
4 tablespoons coconut cannabis oil
1 tablespoon agave nectar
60g dark chocolate chips
120g walnuts chopped
powdered sugar to dust (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease baking tray with vegan margarine or baking spray and line with baking parchment.
Mix flour, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl. Set this aside for later.
In a separate medium bowl, combine mashed banana, sugar, and vanilla extract. Mix.
In a small pan, boil some water and bring to a simmer. Place a heatproof bowl in the pan and put chocolate, coconut cannabis oil, and agave in the bowl. Melt together until smooth and glossy. Pour chocolate into the banana mix and stir.
Pour chocolate mixture into flour mixture, fold thoroughly until everything is combined smoothly. Then put in chocolate chips and walnuts. Fold the mixture but make sure not to overwork the batter.
Pour into prepared baking tray and bake in the oven for 25 minutes. When done, allow brownies to cool before dusting with powdered sugar.
Sit back and enjoy these vegan pot brownies that taste good and get you high!
