Recipe type: dessert, brownies, vegan
Serves: 16 brownies
INGREDIENTS
  • ¼ cup natural, unsalted almond butter
  • ½ cup organic dark brown sugar or coconut sugar
  • ⅓ cup pure maple syrup
  • ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract (vanilla is okay)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 flax eggs (2 tablespoons ground flax + 6 tablespoons water whisked together, set for 15 mins)
  • ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons white whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup vegan chocolate chips
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Line an 8×8 baking pan with parchment paper or greased foil. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together almond butter, brown sugar, maple syrup and melted coconut oil. Whisk until it resembles caramel.
  3. Add cocoa powder in ¼ cup increments, whisking until shiny and smooth. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as necessary. Add in almond extract and salt. Stir just a few times to gently incorporate.
  4. Add flax eggs in, whisking until well incorporated. In thirds, whisk in the flour. As the batter gets harder to whisk, switch to folding with a rubber spatula. Fold until well incorporated and no flour patches remain.
  5. Gently fold in chocolate chips. Pour batter into pan. Using a rubber spatula, smooth batter into an even layer.
  6. Bake for 25-30 mins. Cool for 1 hour, or until completely cool. Slice into 16 brownies. Enjoy!
