Vegan Ultra Chewy & Delicious Brownies

Who else is balancing the stress of a pandemic with a healthy amount of unhealthy treats? Shout out to sweets for always making me feel better and helping me escape boredom… this recipe especially. It’s so f*cking good, and probably the best brownie recipe I’ve tried up to this point. These babies have a nice and firm, almost-crunchy outside, with a soft gooey middle that pairs fantastically with a fat scoop of ice cream. Hello, comfort food. The recipe is borrowed from My Darling Vegan, made by the lovely Sarah.

The beautiful brownie mix, just before getting put in the pan and then in the oven.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 6 tbsp warm water
  • 1/2 cup vegan butter
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line an 8Γ—8 baking pan with parchment paper, letting excess paper hang over the edges. Spray parchment paper with cooking oil. Or lightly oil your 8×8 baking pan.
  2. Prepare the flax eggs by mixing the flax and water, and setting aside.
  3. Fill a pot with a couple inches of water and bring to a boil. In a medium heat-safe bowl combine vegan butter, sugars, cocoa powder, and salt. Place on top of the pot – the bottom of the bowl should not touch the water – and remove from heat. You can also use a double boiler. Stir butter/sugar mixture occasionally until the butter has melted completely. Meanwhile, mix together flour and baking soda and set aside.
  4. Stir in vanilla extract and flax “eggs” to the butter/sugar mixture. Add the flour and baking soda and stir vigorously until well combined; the batter will be very thick. Once well combined, transfer into the prepared pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until mostly set. They should be slightly underdone.
  5. Remove brownies from the oven and let cool for at least 30 minutes before slicing.
Hi my beautiful babies, don’t they look f*cking fire?!
