Recipe Ingredients for ultimate vegan brownies

3 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons flax seeds
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
7 tbsp cocoa powder
30 g dark chocolate
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup boiling water
1 cups sugar
6 tablespoons margarine, melted
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Recipe Directions for ultimate vegan brownies

  1. 1)

  2. In a small mixing bowl whisk together the water and flax meal. Let it sit for about 10 minutes so the mixture gets goopy. Place your oven rack on it's lowest position and preheat your oven to 350F. Line an 8 x 8 inch baking dish with parchment paper allowing excess parchment paper on opposite sides so you can pull the brownies out of the baking dish later.

  3. 2)

  4. In a medium mixing bowl whisk together the all-purpose flour and baking soda. Set aside.

  5. 3)

  6. In another medium mixing bowl add the cocoa powder, semi-sweet chocolate, espresso powder and salt. Add the boiling water and using a spoon, mix in the ingredients into a paste, making sure that all of the chocolate pieces are melted. Add the sugar, margarine, vanilla extract, flax meal mixture from Step 1 and mix with an electric mixer until smooth. Stir in the walnuts if you're using them. Using a spoon, mix in the flour until well combined. The mixture will become extremely thick and you may need to use your hands to mix. Refrain from mixing this dough with an electric mixer at this point; this will overwork the dough and activate too much gluten, negatively affecting the texture of the brownies.

  7. 4)

  8. Transfer the batter to the baking dish. You may need to use your fingers or a spatula to press the thick dough into place. Bake for 35 minutes on your oven's lowest rack. Transfer the baking dish to a wire cooling rack and allow it to cool for about an hour.

  9. 5)

  10. Transfer the brownies to the wire rack by lifting them out of the baking dish by taking hold of the exposed parchment paper on each side. Allow them to cool completely before slicing into squares.
