5 Ways to Make Vegan Pot Brownies
Planning on making pot brownies this weekend? Ditch the dairy and go vegan with these 5 mouth-watering recipes shared by Quantum 9 for vegan pot brownies.
Edibles are always rough for vegans. You can’t resist those gummies, yet you have to remind yourself of the animal products. This is why most vegans have resorted to creating their own edibles.
The marijuana industry has opened up their doors to incorporate veganism into the push for commercial marijuana products.
It’s easy to substitute cannabis for animal products. Since marijuana is a plant, it makes sense for vegans to consume hefty amounts of cannabis.
But with that being said, it’s tough for vegans to find perfect vegan pot brownie recipes. Here are five ways to improve your vegan pot brownies.
1. Use Coconut Cannabis Oil
Coconut oil has a variety of uses. So, it’s no surprise that coconut oil is easily blended with cannabis. You can use this oil to line the pan or mix it into the batter.
You can either purchase it at a dispensary, or you can make it yourself. Keep in mind that coconut cannabis oil does take 18 hours to make.
You melt the coconut oil in a crock pot or cast-iron pot (you only need a cup of coconut oil).
When the oil is melted, add two ounces of finely-ground marijuana with five cups of water. After 18 hours, pour mixture over cheesecloth to remove all of the marijuana pieces.
After your cannabis coconut oil is made, you can start using it to for your vegan pot brownies.
It’s recommended you melt the coconut cannabis oil with dark chocolate and agave. Combine this with mashed bananas, vanilla extract, and sugar.
Combine all of this with flour, baking powder, and salt. Add walnuts or vegan chocolate chips if you desire.
2. Use Cannabutter
Cannabutter is the staple in cooking with marijuana. Since marijuana is a plant, it can be used as an animal product substitute. This is definitely the case with cannabutter.
Cannabutter is conveniently sold on the shelves of dispensaries, but you can also easily make cannabutter yourself. You make vegan cannabutter with coconut oil. Keep in mind it comes out a different consistency than cannabis coconut oil.
Toast the marijuana in the oven and grind it after the marijuana is dry. Take a spoonful or two of coconut oil and place it over the ground-up marijuana.
Let the mixture cook for three hours, and pour the mixture through a cheesecloth to remove any larger marijuana pieces.
The mixture will be liquid, so refrigerate it. Once you do, it will become hardened but soft, similar to the consistency of butter.
To make the vegan pot brownies, take cannabutter and mix it with sugar, cocoa, vanilla extract, salt, and water. Bake this mixture in the oven between 25 and 30 minutes.
3. Use Cannabis-Infused Olive Oil
This is another common type of oil that pairs great with cannabis. Everyone knows olive oil has many uses and reap health benefits, so it’s perfect when mixing with cannabis. Here’s how you make cannabis-induced olive oil.
Start grinding the marijuana (an ounce is recommended.) Start heating olive oil, and mix the marijuana in it. Stir for an hour or two, and strain through a cheesecloth.
The only issue when using cannabis-infused olive oil with vegan pot brownies is the taste. Olive oil has a distinctive flavor that may not pair well with the taste of brownies.
It’s recommended only a little bit of olive oil is included in the mixture, or the oil is lined on the oven dish. This way, there is still cannabis in your brownies — but it’s not overwhelmed by the taste of olive oil.
However, cannabis-induced olive oil can easily be used for a combination of other recipes.
4. Use Cannabis in Icing
The easiest way to make vegan pot brownies is using this method that’s tried and true: mix marijuana within the icing.
This way, you can avoid any issues of weird tastes or timely preparation methods.
However, it’s still recommended you use Cannabutter or coconut cannabis oil. You can still grind up the marijuana in the icing mixture. Just make sure it’s ground up very finely.
A suggested recipe is to mix the vegan Cannabutter with cocoa powder and combine with powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Mix coconut, almond, or any vegan milk you prefer (1/4 cup.)
Mix coconut, almond, or any vegan milk you prefer (1/4 cup.) Mix all of these ingredients together until the consistency is thick.
