Vegan Chocolate Brownies

We’ve been inspired by the many people trying out Veganuary this year and after testing a few recipes have created this perfect chocolate brownie. It’s light, chocolatey and gooey all at the same time and you’d never know it was vegan. The coconut flour are cacao are a match made in guilt-free heaven!

Method

Preheat oven to 170°c (150°c fan). Line an 8×8 inch baking tray with parchment.

Combine 5 tablespoons of ground flax with 15 tablespoons of water, mix together and leave to rest for 10 minutes.

Combine the dry ingredients and mix well.

In a separate bowl mix the remaining wet ingredients until to make a smooth batter.

Slowly pour the wet mixture into the dry, beating until smooth and combined without lumps – keep beating!

Pour the batter into the lined baking tray and bake for 25-30 minutes. Cool completely before turning out and cutting into 12 square brownies.
