We’re excited to introduce you to a delightfully healthy dessert- Sourdough Brownies! Packed with gut-healthy ingredients like oat flour and chia seeds, these sourdough discard brownies are as delicious as they are good for you.


  • 1/4 Cup Mashed Banana
  • 3/4 Cup Pure Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 Cup Coconut Oil, Melted
  • 1/2 Cup Milk*
  • 3/4 Cup sourdough starter*
  • 2 Tablespoons Chia Seeds
  • 1 Cup Oat Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Chickpea Flour
  • 1/4 Cup Cacao Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/4 Cup Sunflower Seed Butter


  1. Line a small baking dish with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 350 F. 
  2. Combine the mashed banana, maple syrup, coconut oil, sourdough starter, and milk in a mixing bowl. 
  3. Whisk until evenly combined. 
  4. In a seprate bowl, combine the dry ingredients: chia seeds, oat flour, chickpea flour, cacao powder, salt and baking soda. 
  5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and fold together until they’re just evenly combined. Don’t over mix.
  6. Pour the brownie mixture into the parchment paper lined baking dish.  Using a spatula, spread the mixture out evenly. 
  7. Measure out your sunflower seed butter, and swirl into the top of the brownies. I like to use a butter knife to spread the sunflower seed butter around in a swirled pattern. 
  8. Bake the brownies for 35 minutes.
