Warm Vegan Brownies


Brownies are really one of our favourites here, but why miss out if you are following a plant based diet? We have tested, tested and tested (and we still love brownies!) and this is the best recipe yet.

Add some cacao nibs or vegan chocolate chips if you like, or raspberries!

Recipe & Instructions

  • 2 tbsp flaxseed mixed with 2 tbsp water
  • 90g dairy free butter, melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 tbsp instant coffee powder
  • 1x 400g tin of black beans
  • 60g cocoa powder (vegan)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 100g self raising flour
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 60g light brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp dairy free milk

Pre-heat the oven to 200°C/Gas Mark 6 and line a baking tray, roughly 7"x11",

Warm the flaxseed and water until it is thick and gloopy.

Add the black beans, melted butter, vanilla essence and milk to a food processor and blend until you have a smooth mix.

Add all of the other ingredients (and the flaxseed) and give a quick pulse to combine (you don't want to do this for long as the flour will make the brownies tough).

Spoon in to the lined tray and bake for 13-15 minutes until risen and wrinkly round the edge, but still soft and squidgy in the middle.

Serve warm.
