Vegan Brownie

This Vegan Brownie inspired by noracooks. We have made this gluten free and refined sugar free for a guilt free indulgence the kids (and adults) will love.

  • 4 tablespoons golden flax, ground
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1 1/2  cups coconut or rapadura sugar
  • 1 vanilla bean, scraped
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1 cup cacao powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 175 and line a 7 x 11 pan with parchment paper.
  • Make the flax eggs by stirring the ground flax and water in a small bowl. Set aside to thicken.
  • Melt the coconut oil in a small pan, and measure 1/2 cup. 
  • In a large bowl, whisk the melted coconut oil and sugar together. Add the flax eggs and vanilla, whisk until evenly combined.
  • In a small bowl combine the almond meal and cocao powder. Add the salt and baking powder and whisk until just combined and there are no lumps. 
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and fold to combine.
  • Fold in half of the chocolate chips. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and smooth out the top with a spoon or your hands. Sprinkle the rest of the chocolate chips on top of the batter.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes. The brownies may still be bubbling and not look done, but they will firm up a lot as they cool.
  • Remove from the oven, allow to cool in the pan for 15 minutes, then pull the brownies out, using the parchment paper and let cool for another 15-30 minutes before slicing and serving.
