The BEST Vegan Brownies that you will ever make!!



  • 2 tablespoons of ground flaxseed meal
  • ⅓ cup of cold water
  • ½ cup (80g) of dark chocolate
  • ½ cup (4oz) vegan butter, I prefer the earth balance vegan butter sticks in this recipe
  • 1 ½ cups + 2 tablespoons (190g) of all purpose flour
  • ½ cup + 2 tablespoons (50g) of cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • ½ cup (110g) of white sugar
  • ½ cup (110g) of light brown sugar, packed
  • ¾ cup (150ml) of plant based milk, I used a plain almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9×9 inch baking tray with parchment paper and spray generously with cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the ground flaxseed meal and the cold water. Let sit to thicken.
  3. In a medium bowl, add in the dark chocolate and vegan butter and melt in the microwave in 30 second increments until completely melted (mine took just 1 minute). You can also do this in a double boiler. Set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Whisk in the white and brown sugar.
  5. Fold in the flaxseed mixture, chocolate mixture, almond milk, and vanilla. Stir until just combined.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared baking tray and bake for 25-32 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Mine was perfect at 30 minutes.
  7. Let cool slightly and ENJOY!


You can make these in an 8×8 pan (although the 9×9 is more ideal) but they may need a few extra minutes to bake
