Do you ever feel like there’s one thing you just can’t seem to cook or bake? Well I do, and that’s brownies! To this day I have never made a perfect batch of brownies, by this I mean like a big pan of brownies, for some reason if I make little ones in muffin cups, they turn out great but I’ve NEVER cook a full try of brownies right!
Finally it took me 25 years, but I found a way to make a batch of brownies work! And really work, they’re delicious and everything! Soft, warm, sweet and chocolaty, absolutely everything someone could ever want from a brownie – they even have a soft yet crispy crust :O *** Mind blown ***
I feel like I need to mention one last thing before we move onto the recipe…… No, there is no pumpkin in these brownies! I feel like I’ve spent the past month eating nothing but squashes and pumpkin, and if I’m starting to feel like it’s a pumpkin overload I assume your tired of reading about it too! So I promise, were on a very short pumpkin break!
½ Bag. Vegan chocolate chips, Melted
½ Cup +1 Tsp. Vegan butter, Melted
2 Tbsps. Ground Flax seeds
¼ Cup + 2 Tbsps. Hot Water
1 Cup. Coconut sugar/ Organic Cane sugar
1 Tsp. Vanilla extract
½ Tsp. Coffee extract (Optional)
¾ Cup. All-purpose white flour, Sifted
¼ Cup. Cacao Powder, Sifted
1 Tsp. Baking powder, Sifted
Pinch of salt
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Grease and lightly flour a 9 x 9 inch baking dish and set aside for now.
In a small bowl wish together the ground flax and warm water, set the bowl side for a few minutes to allow the flax to thicken.
In a large mixing bowl whisk together ½ cup of melted vegan butter with the coconut sugar until well combined.
In a small microwave safe bowl add in the chocolate chips and the remaining teaspoon of vegan butter. Melt in 30 second intervals stirring each time make sure to shorten the time as it melts to avoid burning.
Once melted transfer the chocolate into the mixing bowl, add in the flax and water mixture, vanilla + coffee extract and whisk everything together until well combined.
Place a metal sieve on top of the mixing bowl and sift in the flour, baking powder, cacao powder and a pinch of salt. Flour the dry ingredients into the wet until fully combined.
Transfer the brownie batter into the prepared baking dish and bake for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the brownies comes out clean.
Let the brownies cool for 1 hour before serving.
