  • 1½ tbsp ground flax + 3 tbsp water mixed together in a small bowl
  • ¾ cup plain flour
  • 1½ cups almond meal
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 5 tbs non-dairy butter (I used Half Pint Vegan Dairy Butter Me Up)
  • 1 cup dark chocolate pieces
  • 1¼ cup caster sugar
  • 5 tbsp non dairy milk (I used almond)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ¾ cup roughly chopped walnuts
  1. Preheat oven to 170C.
  2. Line a 20 cm square tin with baking paper and lightly grease.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients (flour, almond meal, cocoa, salt, bicarb).
  4. Melt ½ cup of the chocolate and the butter in a microwave or over a saucepan of hot water.
  5. Add in flax mixture, sugar, vanilla, and almond milk and mix well.
  6. Pour the wet mixture over dry mixture and stir to combine.
  7. Now fold in the walnuts and remaining ½ cup chocolate chips and stir. It is a fairly stiff mix.
  8. Scoop the mix into the cake tin and smooth down flat.
  9. Bake for 35 minutes.
  10. Allow brownies to cool in pan for about 1.5 hours. Be patient!
  11. Remove carefully from pan onto a cooling rack.
  12. Allow to cool completely before slicing.
