Brownies can sometimes be overly sweet or too rich, but this recipe is a perfect balance. It tastes indulgent, with a moist, slightly cake-like texture. Top with some coconut whip or ice cream, and enjoy!

Directions

Click:

  1. In a large bowl, mix the ground flaxseed and water. Let sit for 5 minutes to gel up.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C) and line or lightly grease an 11 x 7 inch (30 x 20 cm) baking dish.
  3. To the bowl containing the flaxseed mixture, add the cocoa powder, plant milk, coconut oil, sugar, maple syrup, baking powder, vanilla, and salt. Then whisk to combine.
  4. Then add in the flour, stirring gently until just combined. Try to not overmix.
  5. Lastly, fold in the chocolate chunks.
  6. Pour into the baking dish and even out the top with the back of a spoon. Bake on the middle rack for 15 - 17 minutes, or until the top is firm to the touch, and a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.
  7. Remove from the oven and let sit for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. In our opinion, they taste even more flavourful and fudgey the next day after they've been refrigerated.
  8. Top the brownies with the vegan whip cream or ice cream, or enjoy!

Notes

  • * Refined coconut oil is coconut oil that doesn't smell or taste like coconuts. Using refined coconut oil is preferred to unrefined as the brownies retain a more neutral flavour.

i made muffins instead of brownies because i didn’t have a matching baking dish and they turned out AMAZING. Even my father, who is very suspicious about vegan food, loved them!!

Thanks for all your amazing recipes😍

Sooo good, would never of thought of adding flax seed!
Ok, I swapped a few things and added a couple of others;
-used honey instead of maple syrup.
- dairy milk instead soy milk.
- added mint hot chocolate powder.

Very good! Will make more soon after I get some soy milk.
