Best Vegan Brownies Recipe Ingredients


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Line an 8-inch square baking dish with parchment paper.
  2. Chop the chocolate into ½-inch (1 ¼ cm) pieces. Set aside half and melt the other half in a microwave-safe bowl for 45 seconds.
  3. Make the flax egg: combine the ground flaxseeds with the water in a small bowl and mix with a fork. Set aside for at least 10 minutes to gel.
  4. In a medium bowl, add the brown sugar and vegan butter and whisk until smooth. Then add the vanilla, flax eggs, and melted chocolate and whisk until well-combined.
  5. Sift in the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt and fold with a spatula until all ingredients are combined. Be careful not to overmix. Then, stir in the reserved chocolate pieces.
  6. Pour the batter into the baking dish and smooth the top with a spatula.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes, until a fork inserted in the center, comes out clean. Let cool for at least 20 minutes.
  8. Slice into 9 equal-sized pieces and serve.
  9. Enjoy!
