Bursting with intense dark chocolate flavor, these delightful sweet treats strike the perfect balance between cakey and fudgy textures.



Dry Ingredients:

  • 2 Tablespoons flaxseed meal
  • 1 cup + 1 Tablespoon almond flour
  • ½ cup rolled oats, finely chopped *
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa/cacao powder *
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt * 

Wet Ingredients:

  • ½ cup unsweetened plain plant milk
  • 1/3 cup + 1 Tablespoon cashew butter *
  • 1 teaspoon unsweetened peanut butter *
  • ½ cup + 1 Tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

Other Ingredients:

  • ½ cup vegan semi-sweet chocolate chips *

Optional Ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee *


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Place the oven rack in the center position.
  2. Place 2 tablespoons of flaxseed meal into the ½ cup unsweetened plain plant milk, stir to combine, set aside.
  3. Line an 8 x 8 baking pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  4. Place the rolled oats into a food processor and process until almost flour, then place into a large bowl.
  5. Place all the remaining Dry Ingredients into a large bowl with the finely chopped oats, then whisk until well combined.
  6. Place all the remaining Wet Ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients (including the flaxseed meal/plant milk mix), stir to combine. Stir in the chocolate chips and mix just until combined.
  7. Pour the brownie batter into the parchment lined 8 x 8 baking dish, smooth out carefully to make the batter even and level.
  8. Place in a preheated oven and bake at 350 F for 29 to 31 minutes or until set and the edges are slightly pulling away from the sides of the pan.
  9. Remove from the pan from the oven, place on a cooling rack and allow to cool for at least 20 minutes in the pan, loosen the edges, then remove the brownies by lifting the parchment paper to a cooling rack. Cool for an additional 10 minutes, then cut, serve, and enjoy!
