Vegan Brownies!

So there’s only one day left of my spring break, which I’m kind of bummed about, but I also tested out a ton of new recipes for you guys over the break that I’m excited to share (these brownies being one of them)! I always struggle with vegan baking, but that’s almost the most fun part, because I’m forced to problem solve and come up with new ways to get the result I want. Sometimes they are *epic* fails, but other times I’m surprised by how good (sometimes better) a vegan version of a recipe can be! What are your experiences with vegan baking? 

Vegan Brownies


  • 1 flax egg (1 tbsp flax + 3 tbsp water)
  • 1/3 cup melted vegan chocolate (I used enjoy life brand)
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 mashed banana
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup 
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar 
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 (scant) cup whole wheat pastry flour (or flour of choice)
  • Pinch salt
  • Opt. Vegan chocolate chips for mix-ins


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and line a 9×9 baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. Prepare the flax egg by mixing together the water and flax and let sit for 7-10 min
  3. Mix together the flax egg, melted chocolate, melted coconut oil, mashed banana, maple syrup, and apple cider vinegar until combined.
  4. Add in flour, cocoa powder, salt, and opt. chocolate chips and mix until combined.
  5. Pour batter into the 9×9 inch pan, spreading evenly. Bake for 17-20 minutes (less for a more gooey brownie)
  6. Let cool and enjoy!
