Hey Fam! I have been experimenting with different Australian ingredients during my stay here recently, and wanted to make some brownies for my family. We have a huge can of Milo, and I thought it would be an awesome idea to make Malted Brownies Using Milo. Now, these brownies are not vegan since Milo contains a small trace amount of milk solids, but you could substitute the Milo for regular cocoa powder (plus 1/4 cup of sugar) or your preferred vegan alternative (Akta-Vite is an Australian brand and it’s a vegan alternative) However, these are egg free brownies, nor do they contain any other dairy products.
These brownies are insanely simple to make, and were really tasty. The Milo flavor was very subtle but came through nicely. It’s definitely a really easy recipe to whip up in literally minutes if you have a few basics on hand. I needed to go grocery shopping but it was a little stormy out (okay I was being lazy lets be honest) so I wanted to use what I had on hand to make something sweet and tasty for my family. I’ll definitely be making these again and will play around with the flavors too! Of course any successful recipe will automatically be added to Amby Cakes, which is good news for you.
