Below we'll show you how to make vegan chocolate chip brioche buns. They are eggless, sugar-free, and made without any dairy product. Only plant-based goodness!
We recently made some tasty vegan Hawaiian rolls, which lasted only a few hours. They were that good, yes! So we thought: "Heck, let's do it again! But let's use chocolate chips next". And so we made some few alterations to that recipe and got these delicious dark chocolate brioche rolls.
We really like the idea of using fruit juice in bakes. It saves us from using refined sugar, and it adds a refreshing vibe. In this recipe, we used orange juice. Orange and dark chocolate are such a wonderful pair. Do you think the same? Then check our vegan and gluten-free jaffa cakes recipe next!
To make these brioche rolls vegan, we replaced eggs and butter with soy yogurt and canola (rapeseed) oil. Instead of cow milk, we opted for our beloved almond milk. You can use any other type of vegan yogurt or milk you like.
We also opted to mix all-purpose flour with wholemeal flour, for a boost of dietary fibres. Oh, and to keep out extra sugars, we used 85%+ dark chocolate. We suggest you stick to a 70%+ dark chocolate if possible.
These little tweakings delivered big results. One of these homemade brioche rolls has 156 calories but only 6g of fats (9.8% RDI) and 1.9g of sugars (2% RDI). Sweet deal!
Making your own brioche rolls is so simple and satisfying. We hope you'll enjoy this recipe as much as we did!
