As always, I delight in spotlighting the recipes of creative home cooks along with mouth-watering food photography. I think you'll enjoy this round-up of brownie recipes that have been "bumped up a notch."

And just because these recipes by-pass the dairy (milk, butter, eggs), it doesn't mean you lose out on taste. In fact, each one of these brownie-inspired creations is so scrumptiously delicious, so full of flavor . . . you won't know the difference.

Are you ready? Here are seven fabulous brownie desserts you'll want to try . . . Enjoy!

7 Brownie-Inspired Desserts You'll Adore

Brownie Waffles

Brownies for breakfast? Or brownie waffles for dessert? You choose.

Just know that these beauties made with silken tofu, cocoa powder, soy milk and brown sugar ... tastes just like brownies. Served warm with a dollop of vanilla (non-dairy) ice cream is simply divine.

A really good recipe for brownie waffles can be found HERE.

Brownie Milkshake

Now you can have your brownie and drink it too! You may be thinking, "Oh come on, a brownie milkshake?"

Well, I think it's a really cool idea. And served in a beautiful glass, it's rather elegant and . . . sexy!

The recipe creator uses almond milk, cacao powder, frozen bananas (and strawberries), almond butter, ice and a crumbled 5-minute espresso brownie . . . here's the recipe and all the details.

Organic Cacao Powder

Central to all these recipes is cocoa (or cacao) powder. I always recommend using quality ingredients. Here's a healthy, high-quality choice for making any of these chocolate brownie desserts . . .

Navitas Organics Cacao Powder, 16 oz. Bags (Pack of 2)
Navitas Organics Cacao Powder, 16 oz. Bags (Pack of 2)

Great for smoothies, desserts and other recipes. Certified organic, kosher, gluten free, and vegan.

A healthy way to stock up on antioxidants and important minerals like magnesium and iron.

 

Brownie Pumpkin Pie

Using brownie ingredients and spiced pure pumpkin puree, you get a dessert that's part brownie . . . part pumpkin pie.

Here are two recipes I like . . . a pie version and the other is a pumpkin pie "cupcake." Both are wonderful!

Brownie Cupcake Recipes of Note

I'll take a brownie cupcake anyday. But if you really want to serve a more elegant treat, try topping with a swirl of your favorite lightly sweetened frosting and sprinkle with chocolate shavings.

The following recipes are real winners!

Make Exceptional Brownie Cupcakes In Any One of These ...

A great brownie recipe along with a great baking pan can yield a really unique brownie cupcake. Of course, you can use a regular cupcake pan . . . but why not try a 'fluted" cupcake pan or "heart-shaped?"

Check out any of the ones below . . .

Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownie Cake

Oh, my goodness . . . this decadent "layered" brownie dessert is comprised of a chocolaty brownie base with a fudgy peanut butter layer and topped off by a rich chocolate mousse. I say again . . . "Oh, my goodness!"

Guess what? You can make this yourself using this recipe by The Gluttonous Vegan.

Double Chocolate Chunk Brownie "Ice Cream"

And finally, I leave you with this gem . . . brownie "ice cream." There are several steps to follow to make this frozen treat but in my opinion, totally worth the effort. Try this

recipe and you'll become the talk of the town.

By the way, if you don't already have an ice cream maker, here's a good excuse to get one.

Some modestly-priced ice cream makers to choose from . . .
