These are very gooey, which is a good thing in my book. However, if you want your brownies a little more solid you'll need to cook them longer than the recommended time. Feel free to add your own additions like hazelnuts, walnuts or sunflower seeds.

Made it healthier.Vegan food always seems to have a high oil content which isn't necessary. I halved the amount and used some apple sauce and a pot of soya dark chocolate pudding....I also added some choc chips...the result was great and more vegan friend raved about it!-17 Sep 2010

I just tried this recipe, but it was way too oily, I should have gone by what the other ladies had said and cut down on the oil, but it is a great recipe any way-05 Jan 2012

Yum! These were really good. My partner still had no idea these were vegan either They took longer to cook than recipe says - so I finished them off in the microwave so the outside didn't crisp up too much.Next time I might reduce the oil a little - they are delicious as they are but I think I could get away with using less oil.-12 Feb 2012

Easy Vegan Gluten-Free Brownies

You scream, I scream, we all scream for…chocolate!

Yeah, I think that’s how it goes.

I don’t know anyone (besides John) who doesn’t love brownies. (Trust me, I’ve tried to convince him otherwise.)

Fudgy, rich, super chocolaty, studded with delicious things. If I were to say I had a “vice,” it would probably be brownies (or ice cream – tough call).

While I do love my black bean brownies (see the naturally sweetened version here), sometimes I want to have a dessert that doesn’t have beans in it. Ya know?

If you have the same feelings, this is the recipe for you.

These brownies are simple, requiring just 10 basic ingredients and 30 minutes (plus cooling) to prepare!

They’re also naturally sweetened with coconut sugar and maple syrup and gluten-free thanks to almond meal and gluten-free flour.

As a baker, there’s a part of me gets super excited over the fact that it’s possible to turn otherwise dairy- and gluten-filled desserts into something everyone can enjoy. I think everyone should be able to have brownies – is that such a crime?

You guys are going to LOVE these brownies. They’re:

Slightly cakey
Studded with pecans + dark chocolate
Simple to make
& Utterly delicious

Make these brownies when guests are coming over, to take along on road trips and to BBQs this spring and summer, or just to have around the house when you’re craving something sweet. I can attest to the fact that these are possibly even better once frozen and then microwaved (think melty chocolate chips and rich, fudgy center).

  • 1 cup chopped Medjool dates
  • 1 cup rolled oats (see Tip)
  • 1 cup almond butter or other nut butter
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Soak dates in hot water to cover in a medium bowl for 10 minutes. Drain, reserving the soaking water.

Meanwhile, line an 8-inch-square baking pan with parchment paper, leaving extra hanging over 2 sides. Lightly coat with cooking spray.

Process oats in a food processor until finely ground. Add the drained dates, nut butter, cocoa powder and salt process until very finely chopped. If the mixture seems dry, add a little of the reserved soaking water, 1 tablespoon at a time. Spread the mixture evenly and firmly into the prepared pan. Refrigerate until cold, about 1 hour. Remove from the pan by lifting the overhanging parchment. Cut into 16 squares.

To make ahead: Refrigerate for up to 4 days.

Tip: People with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity should use oats that are labeled "gluten-free," as oats are often cross-contaminated with wheat and barley.

How To Make A Flax Egg:

Soaked flaxseeds, also called flax eggs, are probably the vegan egg substitute I use the most. You can use them for all kind of baked good: vegan brownies, cakes, cookies, and even pancakes.

Combine one tablespoon of ground flax seed with 3 tablespoons of water. Stir well and let it sit for about 5 minutes to thicken. One flax egg equals one egg.

You can either buy flaxseed meal or make your own at home. To do so, you could use a high speed blender, a good food processor, or a flax mill.

I usually just use my blender and pulse for about 3-4 times. It’s super easy!

If you‘ve got some leftover flaxseed meal, just store it in an airtight container in the fridge and you can use it for your next flax eggs.

Vegan Chocolate Glaze

Well, these chocolate squares are already very chocolaty, but you can never have enough chocolate in your life, right? That’s why I topped these delicious fudgy brownies with a creamy chocolate spread which tastes like buttercream!

I made it with powdered peanut butter, cocoa powder, coconut oil, maple syrup, and water. It’s the vegan creme de la creme on top of these healthy brownies.

How to make these vegan brownies

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C/350 F.

Add the flour, coconut sugar, salt, cacao powder, baking powder, baking soda and dark chocolate and almond milk to a large mixing bowl. Whisk together until thoroughly combined.

Pour into a non-stick brownie tin and bake in the oven for around 25-30 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean but they are not overcooked.

Around 10 minutes before the brownies are done, make the salted caramel sauce. Add the coconut milk, maple syrup and sea salt to a non-stick frying pan and simmer, stirring frequently, on a low heat for around 10 minutes.

Serve the brownies immediately with the salted caramel sauce.

Tips & Tricks

Flour. You can use gluten-free oat flour instead of all-purpose gluten-free flour if you prefer. It's a bit healthier, and works just as well.

Chocolate. I used dark chocolate, which is naturally vegan. But you can use any type of vegan chocolate you prefer. There are many sweet, dairy-free chocolates available at most grocery stores.

Toppings. If you aren't into the salted caramel sauce, you can serve these brownies with other toppings of your choice, such as fresh berries or dairy-free whipped cream.

Add-ins. You can add nuts or dried fruit of your choice into the batter – just fold a handful in before baking. I personally like adding walnuts to my brownies.

Storing. What’s great about these brownies is that they are delicious eaten either straight away or after they cooled down. Fortunately the cooling process doesn’t make them go hard and inedible (which is always a disappointment in brownies). Keep them in an air tight container or refrigerated for 3-5 days.

Making the sauce. This salted caramel sauce is made using only three ingredients: maple syrup, dairy free milk and sea salt. For best results, I would recommend making it just as you are about to serve the brownies because it does form up quite quickly. It has just the right amount of sweetness, and is great for serving with any dessert of your choice.

Vegan Brownies

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8-inch square baking dish with parchment or grease with a little coconut oil or vegan butter.

To make the flax egg, stir the flax meal and water in a small bowl. Set aside to gel for 5-10 minutes.

Place 1 cup of the chopped chocolate in a medium glass bowl with the vegan butter. Place over a small saucepan filled with 1-2 inches of simmering water and stir until melted. Alternatively, melt in the microwave at 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until just melted. Transfer the melted chocolate and butter to the bowl of a mixer.

Add the flax egg, coconut sugar, and vanilla to the mixing bowl with the melted chocolate. Beat on medium speed for 3-5 minutes, until smooth.

Sprinkle the flour, baking powder, and cocoa powder on top of the wet ingredients. Beat again until just combined. Fold in the walnuts and remaining 1/4 cup chocolate chunks.

Spread the brownie batter into the prepared baking dish. The batter will be thick and the back of a spoon works well for smoothing it in.

Bake for 30-35 minutes. Immediately sprinkle the top with the salt. Let cool at least 20 minutes before cutting into squares.

These fudgy vegan brownies are rich. Though I’ve shown them cut into 9 large squares, I prefer to cut them into 36 small squares.

You can use vegan chocolate chips, but we found these to be most delicious when using freshly chopped dark chocolate. Be sure not to accidentally buy bittersweet chocolate, however.

Once completely cooled, store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3-4 days. They can also be frozen for up to 3 months.
