Total time:
Serves: 15 squares
Ingredients
  • 1 ¼ cup vegan chocolate chips
  • 1 cup vegan butter (We love Earth Balance & Smart Balance)
  • 3 tbsp ground flax seeds + ½ cup water (this acts as the egg)
  • 1 cup cassava flour + ¼ cup tapioca flour (or sub all-purpose flour)
  • 1 1/2 cup cane sugar
  • ½ cup cocoa powder (I used Hershey’s brand)
  • ½ tsp salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Prepare flax eggs: In a small bowl, mix together ground flax seeds and water and let sit for about 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, heat vegan butter and 1 cup chocolate chips in a saucepan while stirring. Once a thick, syrup-like consistency is achieved, remove from heat and set aside.
  4. In a mixing bowl, combine flax eggs and cane sugar. With an electric mixer, blend on highest speed for 2-3 minutes.
  5. Add melted butter and chocolate from sauce pan to mixing bowl, and mix again for about 30 seconds.
  6. Gently mix in the rest of the ingredients along with the remaining ¼ cup chocolate chips. Be sure not to over mix.
  7. Generously grease brownie pan with vegan butter and dust with flour. Spread batter in pan and bake for 40-50 minutes in preheated oven. (bake time can vary depending on the type of brownie tin you use)
  8. Remove from oven at let cool at least 1 hour before slicing.
  9. Feel free top with peanut butter as shown in photos above. Enjoy!!
