Servings 8


  • Cast Iron Skillet
  • Microwave
  • 2 Medium Mixing Bowls


  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup coconut sugar or brown sugar I actually only used 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp REDMOND Real Salt
  • 1/2 cup Sunbutter natural, creamy
  • 2/3 cup plain or vanilla vegan yogurt soy, coconut, almond, etc
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 8 oz Enjoy Life semi-sweet dairy free chocolate chunks or morsels 5 oz to melt and 3 oz to mix in at the end. I omitted the extra 3 oz
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil


  • Preheat your oven to 350F and oil a 10-inch, well-seasoned cast iron skillet. ⁣
  • Mix together the flour, coconut sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, and sea salt in a mixing bowl.⁣
  • Separately, whisk together the sunbutter, yogurt, and vanilla.⁣
  • Melt 5 ounces of the non-dairy chocolate chunks or morsels with the coconut oil in the microwave or over a double boiler. (For microwave place in a glass bowl and do 20-30 second bursts stirring in between) ⁣
  • Add a few spoons of the sunbutter/yogurt/vanilla mix to the melted chocolate to temper it. Stir. Add a few more. Stir. Then add the rest and combine well. 6) Combine wet and dry ingredients. The batter will be very thick. ⁣
  • (Optional) Fold in the remaining 3 ounces chocolate chunks or morsels.⁣
  • Spread the batter into your skillet. Bake for 22 minutes, or until the top is set and the edges firm. ⁣
  • Remove the skillet brownie from the oven and allow it to cool for at least 30 minutes before serving. ⁣


I used light brown sugar and since we don't really eat things that are super sweet, I only did 1/3 cup sugar and everyone in the house including the kids devoured these.
DON'T FORGET - cast iron skillets get and stay hot. I know this seems obvious, but I'm the queen of cutting and burning myself in the kitchen. So I always bring it up.
This will be a very thick batter.  Don't think you need to add liquid to thin it out to the consistency of a normal brownie batter.
