Using my recipe for Flourless Tahini Caramel Black Bean Brownies (minus the caramel) as a base, this Vegan Brownie Tiramisu Two Ways brings sweet cravings to heel whether you are feeling naughty or nice. With traditional coffee and chocolate flavours, these puddings are a new take on an old favourite.

These Decadent Chocolate Brownie Tiramisu Two Ways bring sweet cravings to heal whether you are feeling naughty or nice. Both vegan. Both delicious.

I intended to post a healthy noodle dish today but the tummy wants what the tummy wants and this tummy wants chocolate. I think my tummy and the Elf’s tummy are in sync because she was as enthusiastic in her quality assurance role as I have ever seen her. The Husband made the brownie making this recipe a true family collaboration.

I created this decadent chocolate brownie tiramisu two ways for two reasons. Firstly, so the Elf could partake in this chocolatey dessert too.  We simply omit the coffee leaving the chocolate avocado mousse and chocolate brownie. Secondly so that we can indulge even when we are trying to be healthy. Two versions with two agendas.

How to make vegan brownie tiramisu two ways

Naughty

The “naughty” tiramisu recipe most closely resembles the traditional version with creamy coffee infused cashew cream, sweet espresso syrup laced with Kahlua and topped with shaved dark chocolate. Can I hear an Amen to the gods of chocolate and all things decadent.

Nice

The second version, while tasting wicked is reasonably prim. Again using my flourless black bean brownie recipe and an avocado mocha mousse for added chocolate, this version uses a straight coffee syrup (minus the booze) for a clean yet decadent treat. Clean yes, boring? Never.

Whether you’re feeling in the mood for an over the top decadence or simply a little G-rated sweetness, I have the tiramisu for you. For the devilish; chocolate brownie, creamy cashew cream, Kahlua coffee syrup and shaved chocolate. Do-gooders? Chocolate brownie, chocolate avocado mousse, coffee syrup straight up and vanilla coconut yoghurt.

They say necessity is the mother of invention and this Mother needed a treat. Enjoy. x

faqs

Can I use any brownie?

Totally. I use my flourless black bean brownie recipe because it’s rich and awesome but you can use any brownie you like.

Does the tiramisu freeze?

‘Fraid not. The brownie will freeze beautifully if you want to keep some on hand but the other ingredients won’t fair too feel in the freezer. You can make this recipe the day before and keep it in the fridge covered.

Do I have to use Kahula?

Nope. It tastes great without it. But if you are looking for a little kick, Kahlua’s coffee flavour is perfect.

Ingredients 

Nice

  • 300 grams Flourless Tahini Caramel Black Bean Brownie or any brownie
  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 2 ½ tbsp maple syrup
  • 4 - 5 tbsp cacao or cocoa
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • ¾ cup coconut yoghurt
  • 1 cup freshly brewed coffee
  • cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract for vanilla coconut yoghurt
  • cocoa powder

Naughty

  • 300 grams Flourless Tahini Caramel Black Bean Brownie or any brownie
  • 2 cups raw cashews
  • cup maple syrup divided (⅓ coffee syrup, ⅓ cashew cream)
  • 1 ½ tsp teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ - ½ cup soy as needed to blend
  • 1 cup freshly brewed coffee
  • 3 tbsp Kahlua (optional)
  • Dairy-free dark chocolate or cocoa powder to serve.

Instructions

To make the coffee syrup for both recipes

  • To make the coffee syrup, combine 1 cup of freshly brewed coffee and ⅓ cup of maple syrup in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 4 minutes or until the syrup begins to thicken. Take off the heat to cool and continue to thicken. If making the "naughty" version of tiramisu, add Kahlua.

To make the "nice" tiramisu

  • To make the chocolate avocado mousse add the avocados, cocoa, maple syrup (2 ½ tbs) and olive oil to a blender and blend until smooth.
  • To make vanilla coconut yoghurt mix vanilla extract and natural coconut yoghurt in a small bowl until combined.
  • To assemble the "nice" tiramisu spoon a layer of the avocado mousse in to each glass or jar.
  • Break the brownie in to large crumbs and chunks and place a layer in each glass.
  • Spoon one or two tablespoons of coffee syrup over the brownie. Follow with more mousse and continue the layers until you reach the rim of the glass. To finish spoon the vanilla yoghurt on top to serve.
  • Dust each tiramisu with cocoa or cacao and set in the fridge for 30 minutes before serving.

To make the "naughty" tiramisu

  • To make the cashew cream (naughty) combine the cashews, vanilla, soy milk, coffee (2 tsp) and maple syrup (⅓ cup) in a blender and blitz until smooth.
  • Spoon a layer of the cashew cream on the bottom of each glass or jar.
  • Break the brownie in to large crumbs and chunks and place a layer in each glass.
  • Spoon one or two tablespoons of coffee syrup over the brownie. Follow with more mousse and continue the layers until you reach the rim of the glass.
  • Sprinkle the tiramisu dark chocolate shards and put in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Notes

The Nutritional Breakdown is for the "Nice" Vegan Brownie Tiramisu recipe. The "naughty" version is 499 cal per serve. 
This is a rich dessert so I have kept the serving sizes small.
