The birth of these brownies came from a Farmer’s Market trip where they had fresh strawberries and super vibrant rhubarb. I started by making rhubarb bread with strawberry jam on top, but quickly decided that incorporating chocolate somehow was an even better idea. Thus, I used my favorite vegan brownie recipe and added my farmer’s market finds. And let me tell you, these dark chocolate rhubarb brownies are an all-around win!

  • The batter is made easily in one bowl.
  • Perfect for those who are vegan, gluten-free, or follow a grain-free diet.
  • They are mostly allergen-friendly (sorry to my friends with nut allergies).
  • Perfectly sweetened with natural sweeteners
  • They are packed with antioxidants from the berries, cacao, dark chocolate, and rhubarb.

Ingredients You’ll Need

  • Blanched Almond Flour: Make sure to use finely blanched almond flour, not almond meal. The results will not be the same with almond meal.
  • Baking Soda: Don’t skip this one. It helps the brownies rise.
  • Binders: Unsweetened applesauce and nut butter help bind the ingredients and give the brownies the perfect texture. You can use any nut or seed butter you like!
  • Sweetener: You’ll need just a bit of maple syrup and coconut sugar. I like to use natural sweeteners, but you can always use whatever you have on hand like brown sugar or cane sugar.
  • Cacao Powder: Any chance I get to add cacao powder to my desserts, I do. It’s essential unprocessed cocoa powder and it offers a ton of benefits, mainly in that it is high in antioxidants and flavonoids.
  • Vanilla Extract: Because vanilla is a must, especially when making brownies!
  • Add-ins: I add a half cup of rhubarb, and a fourth cup of chocolate chips to the brownie batter, along with 2-3 sliced strawberries. I then top the brownies with a bit more rhubarb, chocolate chips, and a sliced strawberry.

How to make rhubarb brownies

When it comes to making these brownies, it couldn’t be any easier! Just mix the ingredients together in one bowl, starting with the dry ingredients, then adding the wet ingredients. Fold in your rhubarb, chocolate chips, and strawberries. Then, bake!

Here are some key tips so that your strawberry rhubarb brownies come out perfectly!

  • Cut the rhubarb into small pieces. I like to but them to about the size of a blueberry. I only used about 1 large rhubarb stalk for this recipe so you do not need much
  • Slice the strawberries thin. You only need 3-4 strawberries for this recipe. You’ll cut the first few into small pieces to fold into the brownie batter. Then, reserve one to place on top of the batter right before baking.
  • Use parchment paper. Line an 8×8 baking dish with parchment paper and scrape the batter into the baking dish. Use a spatula to gently spread the batter evenly.
  • Let the brownies cool. As tempting as it will be to eat them as soon as they come out of the oven. Give them about 10 minutes to cool, then dig in!

How to store leftover strawberry rhubarb brownies

Good luck if you have any left! If you do, I recommend storing them in an airtight container in the fridge. They last about 3-4 days and you can easily warm them up or enjoy them cold!

Are these brownies healthy?

These brownies are healthy-ish! Ingredients like cacao, strawberries, and rhubarb are packed with antioxidants. Plus, strawberries and rhubarb are a great source of vitamin C and fiber!
